I love Zwarte Piet (Black Pete) This is our Dutch tradition. Nothing to do with racism, it's a kids holiday.

^ youre just brainwashed by society. Black females dyeing their hair blonde is the exact same thing but no one screams racism. Or Asians getting a nose job to have a more white shaped nose.

How is painting your face black even considered offensive? I don't get it. Are they supposed to be ashamed of their skin? YOU finding it offensive is actually more racist. They should be HONORED. Black people straighten their hair, dye it, they do everything and no one finds it offensive, which is how it should be.

I find it utterly disgusting how black people go live in a better country to benefit from their way of living but then have the AUDACITY to complain about their traditions. Like all those 3rd world black countries don't practice traditions that could seem offensive to white people.

Saying that Black Pete is racist is like attacking elves and trolls saying they are racist. These are folklore and fables.

Blackface is utterly despicable. You want to mock Blacks by painting your face black, don't be surprised when you're laid out on the ground wondering why you have a black eye and a bleeding nose. This goes with yellow face and brown face. Imagine condoning this type of behavior when it's clearly not an acceptable thing to do in society in todays age

How is it mocking blacks?? You thinking it mocks blacks is the actual racism. You're making it seem that having black skin is an embarrassment or something negative. When a black woman dyes her hair blond and straightens it, is she mocking white people?? No, they are honoring our white beauty.

This character just happens to be black and people dress up as him... How is being black a bad thing?? You're being very racist.
