So, at school today we had a discussion about the Dutch charachter of Black Peter. Some Dutch educators came to our school to learn more about it, and as a farewell thing they did a presentation on the Dutch version of Christmas. Some students and staff found offense in the Black Peter charachter, and have been making a big fuss about it. I myself found it rather tasteless, but because I'm white, I don't really understand how someone was offended by this. Especially since it's another culture. I'm sure other cultures find some US customs offensive. Anyway, what do you all think? For those of you who don't know the history of Black Peter, read this.
