Merry Xmas 2016 everyone
Have a wonderful xmas
Courtesy of the “benevolent” fomer Dutch imperialists…
Netherlands was once an imperial power, a possessor of overseas colonies teeming with plantations, and one of the major early drivers of the African slave trade.
When told to stop this senseless racism, this is how many Belgians responded…
Think of the children!
It’s not racist because Blackface is an American invention. Europe has no similar past.
We want to protect our culture
Trying to tell a Dutch person why this image disturbs you will often result in anger and frustration. Otherwise mature and liberal-minded adults may recoil from the topic and offer a rote list of reasons why Zwarte Piet should not offend anybody. “He is not even a black man,” many will tell you. “He is just black because he came down the chimney.” Then, you may reply, why aren’t his clothes dirty?
Well well, isn’t that funny? They want to protect their “culture”, huh?
When they pressure non-white people to change their culture, it’s because they need to become more civilized.
When Whites are pressured to stop being racist against an entire race of people, it’s “ridiculous”.
Here are some Blacks celebrating this “happy” day…
