I weep for what my country has become.A Polish mother says she was beaten up by a gang of 15 women in what she describes as a racist attack. Anna Maria Serafin Podolska said she was viciously targeted in the West Midlands town of Tipton. Ms Podolska said she and her three children were verbally assaulted by the group who told them to ‘go back to Poland’.
She shared photographs of her black eye on Facebook, adding that she was returning home from a walk when it happened. She said: ‘One of them followed us, and once we reached our street I turned around and was struck in the face with a fist. A fight broke out. ‘When I was lying on the street, 15 women or more, of different ages, ran up to us. I received blows from all sides.’ The mother said police and the emergency services arrived at the scene after her neighbours were alerted by her son.
Ms Podolska added: ‘I have been living in Tipton nearly five years and similar situations have been happening all the time – child beatings, name-calling. ‘Several weeks ago I was attacked with water-filled bags.’ In April, a Polish man was chased by a gang of 20 people and struck down with a nail-studded wooden plank in what police said was a ‘racially aggravated assault’ in Hull, East Yorkshire.
Around a million Poles live in Britain, making up the largest national minority in the country.
I weep for what my country has become.May God forgive us.

Agreed. The Poles are a devout, hardworking people in general, and we should be glad to have them in our country. It is the women who attacked her who have no right to be called British.

15 attackers? Very precise number. She had time to count them but not run away.
How is it racist anyway? Poles are white European, unless the ‘attackers’ were blacks etc

As disgusting as this attack is (anyone got a link to it?), what has it got to do with brexit? See the post on propaganda below.

Anything bad that happens will be described as 'because of Brexit'; anything good that happens will be 'despite Brexit'. Britain until 23 June 2016 was a haven of peace and happiness, children played, nobody was homeless or unemployed, there was no racism. Since then everything is darkness. It really does fascinate me, the dream world Remainers live in. I've never heard an answer to the question 'If the Tory government, the war criminal Blair, the economic 'genius' Brown, the City and the banks told us to vote Remain, what exactly can there be in it for us, the ordinary people?'

It's not fake news. I just fail to see how a racist attack is a result of brexit as the op seems to be suggesting.
The town of tipton is in a labour held constituency. .. should we assume that labour voters are more likely to be violent racist thugs? Or would that tenuous link be as ridiculous as suggesting that brexit is the cause of racist attacks?
