Black Pete's are Santa's helpers of Sint nicolaas / Saint Nicolas.They are mostly white people with a painted face lol
He is the character on which Santa Claus is based. Exact same idea.
But the black Petes are black because they enter the homes through the chimney.
To bring presents in December (or abduct children who did not behave that year.)
Just like religion.. to scare, control and / or reward.
The people women speak fluent and proper Dutch with no accent, except for one. (FYI) The dude suggests, black pete's, red, green and all sorts of colors. (Sounds okay, but what will the kids think, the black pete's stole the presents so Santa hired other colors)
Is is from the time of the colonization and they are actually slaves.
Some Dutch people and people from the Dutch Antilles and Suriname are offended by this and protest because it would be racist. So they try their best to ruin a children's celebration.
