20200605 Nederland 'zwarte piet' / ' Black Pete '
AMSTERDAM: Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte said his attitude towards "Black Pete", a figure from pre-Christmas
celebrations that has been criticised as a racist caricature, had undergone "great changes" in recent years.
Rutte said his view had changed since 2013, when he said: "Black Pete is just black and I can't do much about that."
Now he expects the tradition to disappear.
He was speaking on Thursday (Jun 4) in a parliamentary debate about anti-racism protests in the Netherlands held in solidarity with demonstrations in
the United States after the death in police custody of George Floyd, an unarmed black man in Minneapolis.
In the Dutch tradition, St Nicholas brings gifts to kids accompanied by numerous "Petes", clownish servants usually portrayed by white people in black face paint wearing frizzy wigs and red lipstick.
The tradition is already changing. Some celebrations feature Black Petes with dabs of paint on their cheeks, representing soot from the chimneys he is said to climb down to deliver presents.
Others include multicoloured Petes, dropping the word "black" from the name.
