I AM really weary of this black piet thing. He/she is supossed to be the "assistant" of ST.Nicolas, sinterklaas, santa claus...
In Holland every year starting from November the country just goes mad with zwart piet (black piet).
From the high officials, churchs, teachers,you name it. The young and the old keep on promoting this image of slave and master.
They ask me why is your boy not taking part in this? can I and I imagine?
They legally accept it claming it is thier culture and tradition!!
If i click zwart piet on google, plenty of pictures. nice and innocent.
They way they conduct themself while in this "outfit" is really shamefull, walking about like idiots and jumping up and down like monkeys!!
They just can't wait till it is november till the black piet comes.
They even have special news for this!!
Purewickedness and they blame it on the children saying "we do this for the children so that they might pick up the tradition".
Do I and I have this as in the place i and i live?
I HONESTLY HOPE NOT!
