    Well, well, well, look who's talking! No matter whether there actually is something wrong with Zwarte Piet or not - America, you ignorant shithole of a country, you don't get to point fingers at ANYONE for seemingly racist traditions.
    Particularly since you don't understand anything about the histories and cultures of other countries. Most of you don't even understand your own history (and you hardly have any noteworthy culture).
    I bet at least 85% of you couldn't even find the Netherlands on a map if their life depended on it!
    So shut up and put your own house in order first.

    Its a childrens festival, not a dutch child has ever lived who thought of “black pete”.. idioticly confused here with blackface which is something else entirely, as a negro slave.
    Nobody thinks of black pete that way.
    Only racists do, let that one sink in.

    Racism was never realy a thing in the Netherlands as mutch that there needed to be a civil war about it and a black rights movement, black people also barely made up any percentage of the population until the ladder half of the 20th century. The US had a civil war and a black rights movement, in the Netherlands there where no sutch things to force our population to accept black people, we just did...

I don't care whether you're for or against it, if you take the bait on this kinda shit every single December you're the kinda voter who's as easily distracted from real issues as a cat with a laserpointed. And yes I'm Dutch, yes I know it's racist, and I just want it to end. For the love of God just change it already so we can be done with this fucking bullshit and move on with our lives I honestly don't care about it anymore cause I'm not a kid anymore and Black Pete hasn't brought me a present or candy in two fucking decades. The thing that triggers me the most about it is that it's a kids holiday and all the adults are whining and bitching about it like a bunch of toddlers it's pathetic. The kids honestly give even less of a shit than I do, they just want candy and presents for fucks sake.

    well..there is a "black peter" character in the slavic countries and those nations never colonised neither enslaved any "black" peoples in their history ... it has got to do with the chimney as there is a long history about traditions and tales of the "beelzebub" and sulphur and it's linked to coal and the black residue around fireplaces and chimneys and hell ... over there it is the devil from hell with a bag of charcoal (and he would smear that charcoal on the faces of the bad children so they learn from the horror and the shame to turn into better people/kids for the next year...you should watch some of those parades these days..those masks are 100% legit..in Germany it's called KRAMPUS PARADE) for the bad kids and the st.mikolaus is there with the awesome gifts for the good kids.. So the story of the "black peter" came from that origin - I dont know of many "black" africans from the colonial era called Peter...do you? I think with this one is Jim fishing for some sensations to suck a little bit of that neo-liberal cock back in the USA..to make themselves feel a little bit better than the rest of the "civilised" world...just the tip Jim,just the tip of it..search a bit deeper ;)

    When I was little my neighbor was always sad and crying on the week from Sinter Klaas. When I ask her why she told me that children where shouting at her and wanna to dance with her and let her tell childish jokes. My neighbor was half Surinaams and half Pakistaans. She looked like black Piet.......
    I was 6 years old and saw in a instant that this was wrong.
    But now hell broke lose. Defending a tradition is like defending religion
    It doesn’t have to make sense how to defend But it is there all ready for years.
    Come on guys
    That doesn’t make it right
    Same for the ones who are fighting against it

    Slavery was banded in the Netherlands in 1814, so 1850 was 36 years after the abolition. The only country in love with slaves was the US, Europe came way before you.

Just look at this wingnut at 1:48, he's claiming "libruls are calling my bullshit out because Black Pete got black going down the chimney" yet he *CAN'T* provide any explanation for how a white person coming down a chimney gets an afro wig.
      Ditto for the Black Pete defenders who claim that their "tradition" is being "attacked" when that tradition doesn't even go past their great grandparents because the caricature of black pete was only created in the 1850's. Just never ending complain is all white wingnuts do. It's time to grow the fuck up and move on from your wingnut past.

      It's like the Confederate Flag in the states where you have defenders in denial and claiming it's "tradition" even though that "tradition" only goes back a few generations (just like the Black Pete caricature was only created in 1850, not centuries and centuries or thousands of years ago), and that tradition, going by its own creators (William Porcher Miles and William Tappan Thompson, who explicitly talked about white supremacy) and those who popularized it, is racist (the confederate flag became popular in the 1950's and 60's due to backlash against the Civil Rights movement)

    Not a single child will complain when their Pete is a different color than black. There you go, problem solved.
    Any adult who argues that multi-colored Petes are not acceptable doesn't give a crap about the children and their holidays, and is only interested in maintaining Black Pete because THEY grew up with it, and therefor can never be racist. Not even when their fellow citizens who happen to have a different skin color tell them it actually is.
    People aren't racist because they feel like being racist. It's because they think that their racist theories aren't racist, but true.

    Is it racist? Yes, and those who say it isn't are wrong. But the reason why people are defending the portrayal of Black Pete is because their aim is not racist in nature. Again, they are wrong, but I hope that the rest of the world doesn't see every Dutch person as a racist.
    Should Black Pete's portrayal be changed? Yes. And it has. Black Pete no longer is fully black, but a white person with some black streaks on the face (just like a chimney sweeper would have). I personally would have liked to see the image changed to a regular black person, played by black people. The reason for this is as follows: I can't really think of another black person who is a child hero, other than Black Pete. As such, we are (in this case literally) white washing another character.

      "It means that black people (I'm sorry if this is an offensive idiom, I don't know how to say it else) can draw any charicature pictures of white people. But vica versa it's racist." So now you've trivialized and downplayed this to just "drawing pictures"

    Yes, Black Pete should become Pete and all references to black people should be removed.
    Allthough I believe Black Pete should change, people (outside of Holland) still don't understand the character. It's easy to judge this from the outside, while you don't know the entire story. If you want to report on this, please do it properly. This is the so maniest time people are not showing the entire picture.

    It's funny reading all those "traditions can change", "tradition is not a good reason", ....
    Wait untill the baby jesus has to be given a more brown skin similar to that of middle eastern people, everyone will go nuts. Because isn't it racist to make jesus' skin white, while we know it wasn't?
    In the netherlands I guess they just overdid the whole black pete thing, because here in Flanders, there is no problem with it. Black pete is the equal and a friend of Sinterklaas and a jolly fellow.
    If I remember correctly someone even wrote about Sinterklaas and Black Pete a few years before the abolishment of slavery to PROMOTE the abolishment by making black pete a slave freed by Sinterklaas. The original old story of Sinterklaas is that he was a bishop in Turkey (before it became islamic) and freed children from slavery on one of his travels.
    I also find it quite hypocritical that black people always point to racism because of slavery, plenty of white people have been slaves too, at a time black/brown people had more white slaves than the other way around. You don't hear us crying about this past. Should I hate everything that is Roman because they enslaved white people from the area I now live in?
    If a majority of the population is against it, the tradition will die out from its own, if not ask why, are all people racist, or is that maybe those that see it as racist don't get the whole picture? I am sure there will be people that see racism in every little thing.
    I once read a "story"/joke. It comes down to the fact that within a few decades (2-3) a child asks his/her father why there aren't black pete's while there are pete's of every color. The point of this "story" is that you can always find something wrong. Forcing black pete's change like it is done in the Netherlands might just result in another kind of racism, because black people might be afraid to play black pete and be seen from a far as racist themselves. Their isn't even a concensus in the black community about black pete.
    And then as last thing, Black pete is also used to make sure the children don't recognise the person playing black pete, similar to how santa claus without a beard would make the person playing him too recognisable/less special.
    But all in all the most important thing to the festivities are the presents the children get from Sinterklaas and black pete. I haven't even seen a black pete for years in real life, because they tend to only appear in the schools or during "the arrival" in the country.

    Jim this is just a terrible video. The black guy who is linking it to racism and the black face actors, that's an American thing. We never had that 'tradition' in the Netherlands. Sure it fine to change to black to purple. But don't act like it's all racism. The kids don't even think about races like you do. You are just putting your own American view on something you never even experienced as a kid. It's like someone starts saying Santa shouldn't have elves because people can be offended because it looks like child slaves.

    2: Every kid, black or white, loves black pete.
    3: The legend says That Sinter Klaas saved Black pete from living a life of crime. Black pete helped Sinter Klaas delivering presents to kids Since then.

    Now go fuck off and stop saying we are racist. You are from the USA, Which is by far more racist than Belgium or The Netherlands.

    Black Pete is not black because of his etnicity.. It's funny that you think that I, as a white man, turn black for a few weeks a year, and then go back to being white the rest of the year.

    No, you nitwit, before you start judging our culture, do some investigation and you will find out that Black Pete isn't black because of his skin colour, he is black because of the soot. Black Pete is made black because of European Folkoric festives in which blackness represents joy and fortune for the new year.

    That's the tradition, that evolves like everything does in life, and nowadays we only care about the blackness of Pete, to make sure that our kids won't recognize us. The black colour is used for the surprise effect to kids. As this party is for kids of ALL skin colours. And kids of all skin colours love the party. So please, mind your own fucking business and be the Social Justice Warrior somewhere else.

PS I'm not white and looking from the outside in find that white people, mostly pampered middle and upper middle class ones that have never been around us colored folk, are the most PC, like they have to save all the non-white people who are less fortunate than them from the big bad world and "racism" and discrimination and other white people, or what have you.

(The robber mask not the jabbawockeez mask) Change the definition of Black Pete. And if anyone still argues, they're either the 'abhors change' type or they're racist.

    The figure of Black Pete has too much history to be covered in a 4.5 minute comedy piece. Quincy Gario here mentions that Black Pete was introduced in 1850, 15 years before the abolishment of slavery. But that statement lacks quite a bit of nuance right there. First off, slavery was not abolished before 1865 by Dutch law, that's true. But it was not practiced in the mainland of the Netherlands, slavery was a thing that was mostly practiced within the colonies. Was that bad? Of course. Did the mainland profit in any way from the practice? Well, yes, most likely, but the point is that slavery was not something that was on the people's mind back then. So that's one thing that Quincy glosses over here. The other is that, before the introduction of the figure that was later called Black Pete, Sinterklaas already had companions. Those companions you still see in other parts of Europe in celebrations around the figure of Sinterklaas (or Saint Nicolas), but they are/were much more demonic. They too are painted black, but are made to look unhuman. So, where does that figure come from then? To understand that, we need to look back to the times when christianity was introduced in Europe. Back then there were a lot of pagan religions spread throughout Europe, each with their own celebrations. The summer and winter solstices were particularly important in those celebrations and rituals and in many winter solstices there were rituals that involved blackened, demonic figures. When missionaries tried to convert those pagan tribes to christianity, they altered celebrations to include some of those ancient figures in order to increase acceptance. This is how those demonic figures were initially linked to Saint Nicolas. In fact, it is this demonic figure that caused the church in the Netherlands to ban the celebrations for quite a while (though people still secretly celebrated it at home). In the early to mid 1800's the celebrations became more publicly acceptable again, but a school teacher in Amsterdam by the name of Jan Schenkman thought the demonic figure to be too scary for the children. For that reason he reshaped the demonic figure, whose sole purpose was to punish the bad children, into a friendlier looking man that was a helper for Sinterklaas. However, just like the old christian missionaries, in order to maintain acceptance (and because it made it easier for those dressing up like him to be unrecognisable), he kept the blackness of the demonic figure. Later, most people (including the people that still live in our old colonies) started associating the blackness with the fact that Black Pete had gone through so many chimneys that he could never really get it all off anymore. Now, I will admit that some idiots have started adding characteristics and elements that would push him in the direction of being from African descent (at one point they had gold earrings, the hairdo's were altered to mimick those of african descent and some really moronic people started putting on accents in their speach), but that's not what the figure was originally about. If you ask me, those elements should indeed be reverted, but we need to understand the origins, need to understand that those origins are not racist at all (the pagans had never even seen people from Africa) and need to look for a way that we can all accept Black Pete for who he really is: a friend and helper for Saint Nicolas, without whom the old fool would be lost.

    The whole tradition is several thousands of years old and in some European regions they still celebrate Krampus and his good brother, Krampus is the original Black Pete, as the bringer of punishment for naughty children. Of course Christians had to take this tradition too and made it about some saint they found to have thrown some gold near houses where children lived. This was Bishop Nicoleas from Myra, in modern day Turkey.
    In Holland in the 17th century, an age in which Holland was known for its slave trade, rich nobles established a trend of owning an accompanying slaveboy, adorned with golden rings and (slave)bracelets, with colorfull clothing in the fashion of the time. In the early nineteenth century, a bookwriter telling the story of Sint Nicolas with songs, based himself for illustrations of the helpers of Saint Nic, on paintings from the seventeenth century of these slaveboys. So yes, the image is racist.
    But when a people have seen this archetypal depiction and associated it with gifts and good times throughout their childhood for generations, they are kinda primed to overlook its racist connotations, especially since racism was never intended. Poor research on behalf of the writer of the initial book, with a change to Spain, and Mores (as in the later Turks, who at one point controled a part of Spain) must have been the helpers, who must have looked like that... The days before internet and bookresearch...
    The nasty part is that every year, around that time, thousands of black Dutch boys are called Black Pete by their peers... The conservative Dutch seem unwilling for now to change small aspects of Black Petes appearance, out of a deeprooted fear of losing their heritage to multiculturalism due to (what they regard as) high influx of refugees. This and a forced European union make nationalists cling to their traditions even more...
    This tradition had been changing over thousands of years and if you ask me we change it back to Krampus and his brother. Away with Christian oppression, back to our old roots. As an example of how childhood priming makes people overlook the racist aspect, in the following video a celebration of Sinterklaas by black people, in Surinam (frmr British Guyana) ru-clip.com/video/jzyofzjh47i/видео.html. Most protesters against Sinterklaas come from this former Dutch colony. Priming also worked for McDonalds, since you can remember childhood birthday parties and still won't buy a whopper (for instance).

    In belgium, zwarte piet is still ironclad a part of it. without any controversy like in the netherlands. BP is black bc of that many ashes of the chimney. Sinterklaas and BP are the way they are bc the children wouldn't recognise them. hence the large beard for the one and black makeup for the other. we don't put red lipstick on though, nor do we wear earrings. even within etnic groups in belgium, there are no protests. most sint en piet duo's are recognisable people to children. that's why they dress up.
    we had a daily kids television show in the early nineties that explains the hell out of the tradition, that shows bp is actually a white man that went through such an amount of chimeys he can't get the black ashes off his face and hands anymore. we also learned BP was fun and joyfull, while Sinterklaas was older, sturdier, but still liked kids a lot (ref jesus who wanted the kids to get by his side). we also saw that their relationship was one of equals, not a master and his slave/subordinate. they were friends, who sometimes had their differences. Both hated fake pretenders, loved their horse 'Slechtweervandaag' (BadWeatherToday) which they got one day when it was such bad weather, it didn't seem they would get ready to get all children of the land their presents in time, stuff like that. The show is/was so popular that it still airs to this day, with some extra parts added 10 years ago (i think they added a mamasita of sorts as a cook, and a whacky professor that explains some stuff even more in detail, stuff like that).
    In holland, they didn't do this show or something like that and did in fact keep hanging in the master-subordinate tradition. I get that up there, people get more upset.

    some of these protesters also make a big problem of the cross of Sinterklaas' hat. What do you think about that? isn't it allowed to be a christian tradition anymore, which it very much is? Very interested to hearing an opinion about that.
    From the outside, I get that it looks very condemmable. but it really is lousy research. the fact he has his 'frank anne' and other cards with him, confirms jims bias. if in holland 91% doesn't see the problem, i garantee in belgium and flanders it will be at least at 95%.

      Racism is almost never considered racism by the offender, because they can't place themselves in the situation of the ones that are affected by it. The fact that you did not include a single word about how your black/brown community experiences this topic is very much an example of that.
      Personally I don't consider Black Pete as a racist statement, but when my countrymen who happen to be colored DO take offense, then I feel I should take that into serious consideration and make all efforts to change that into something we all can be happy about. Especially when the solution is quite simple.
