The Dutch are slowly recognizing that their blackface tradition of Zwarte Piet is racist and weird


Over multiple years now, WorldViews has run stories about the problematic Dutch tradition of Zwarte Piet. Around Christmastime, myriad Dutch adults and children have customarily donned frilly wigs, patted themselves in blackface, painted their lips red and japed around in costumes as "Black Pete," the dark-skinned helpers of Sinterklaas, or Saint Nicholas ...

I had both Castilian Spanish & Portuguese interns on my team & the Castilian's seemed somewhat aloof but amicable since they were vying for employment, the Ports as we called them seemed to be like in their own world, not mean or nasty, just didn't talk unless they had to.
