Fucking ay, is Russel Brand everywhere in London? Or is he like Agent Smith and can just occupy another Londoner's body if there's a camera around?

That last one left a bad taste in my mouth, and not just from the Ant Piss candy. "Let's used the idea of violence to stop racism!"

Yeah that wasn't cool.

Oh, come on you two. If she doesn't shoulder the white man's burden and put those Dutch savages in their place, then who will?

Actually, I think it makes perfect sense to tell two people in blackface who are going to a playground with black kids playing in the sandbox to go fuck themselves.

It's not her responsibility to tolerate people who break the most essential of modern civilization's mores: intercultural tolerance and compassion for the oppressed.

Black people shouldn't have to be the punchline of a Dutch social experiment. They shouldn't have to explain to their children what is happening in front of them. If anything comes out of this, it will be that the 80% of Dutch who celebrate this tradition feel some shame from watching this video. Apparently they try to end it all the time, but those who are protesting it are threatened with death. THAT is fucked up.

You got it wrong, Baleen. Dutch black face is the set up to the joke, the militant, white, lesbian is the punchline.

EvilHomer - 2014-11-22
But she's not telling them to go fuck themselves, baleen. She's telling them she's going to smash their faces in for harboring cultural beliefs that she finds distasteful.

You say that being threatened with violence for speaking out against Zwarte Piet is fucked up. Why? Is it because there is something essentially "wrong" with using violence to promote a cultural agenda? Or is the methodology fine, it's just that intolerance is a privilege reserved only for people who are politically orthodox?

Also, I seriously doubt black children would be immediately shocked and traumatized by seeing this.

a neighbor once played zwarte piet for me and my sister and rang a doorbell and left a burlap sack of toys for us on the 5th. He was a white dude but tossed candy in the crack of our door and his hand was all blackfaced out... yada yada yada it was way more exciting than santa claus. (and it happens on the 5th od dec.) Even with that fun memory, or whatever... this is not ok on any level. this is like how white football teams call african ones monkeys. Europe is really fucked up with racism, at least with our sordid horrible past we can actually see the lines.

all my dutch friends use the words nigger and faggot with reckless abandon

the politically correct for a BROWN person (bruin) or if you want to pronounce it racistly in dutch, say BRAAAHHHHHNUH. is "neger" No joke. I talked to this skinhead dj who played drum and bass in rotterdam to mainly a black crowd, he was describing how people mistook him as a skinhead neo nazi. but while he was telling me this story, about a black dude asking him if he was a neo nazi, he said "so, this... i don't know how you say in your country, nigger, comes up to me"
