Netherlands Racism or not UN

MORE CONTROVERSY ON THE NETHERLANDS’ ‘BLACK PETER’: UN INVESTIGATOR DECLARES HISTORICAL FIGURE AS ‘RACIST’ BEFORE INVESTIGATING…….

 

From the Tundra Tabloids’ comment section to an earlier post on the subject of ‘Black Peter’, Arius left the following:

”If the U.N. High Commissioner for Human Rights South African Navanethem Pillay knew the psychology of the unconscious she would know that the Black Peter represents the psychological shadow. The world today is so disconnected from its own nature, so unconscious of what animates it, that it believes its intellect is the only fountain of knowledge, not knowing of the objective psyche.
The world today is the blind being led by the blind.”

FM BadNewsfromTheNetherlands blog whose editor takes the rare opportunity to comment to weigh in on the controversy:

”This would not be the first time that a U.N. investigator has an opinion on an issue before investigating the facts”.

Black Peter, the most serious thing confronting the UN today

UN Investigator Before Investigation Begins: Black Peter is Racist

Professor Verene Shepherd, Human Rights Investigator at the United Nations and head of the U.N. Working Group which investigates Dutch folk lore figure Black Peter, says that the Netherlands has to stop the Sinterklaas festival because Black Peter is racist and a return to slavery. She added that as a member of the investigation committee, she is obliged to do the investigation, but “as a black person, I am already opposed to it.” Dutch Prime Minister Rutte has said that “by definition, Black Peter is black.”

  1. This festival is for children and it has NOTHING to do with racism. These UN-people treat our children as potential racists whereas it is about has harmless as it gets. Children get presents on the 5th of December (for good behavior) from Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet (Black Peter). Grown ups look back at this festival with good memories and pass it on to future generations. The presents you get, the candy and all the excitement around it, it is so much fun when you’re little. Nobody thinks of Sinterklaas and Zwarte Piet in terms of race (except for Shepherd and the bad spirited people backing her)
    This discussion about Sinterklaas flares up every year and people are done with it. The Dutch are pretty pissed off that this commission seems to think that our festival is their business. It isn’t. This just shows how useless the UN actually is.
