I thought you might be interested in an annually recurring blackface stereotype in
the Netherlands: Zwarte Piet (Black Pete). Although some debate has been stirred over
recent years, the dominant part of our stubborn population seems to think it is perfectly
acceptable to stick to this racist relic. With our colonial history, I am ashamed
of my country for this unacceptable practice and would like to see this tradition
disappear in a museum, where it belongs. Please consider collecting Zwarte Piet imagery,
as I think it would be a valuable addition to your museum. For some background, refer
to the links below.
