Santa_Claus – Sinterklaas – Racism?

We can read at, that the Dutch version “Sinterklaas” is celebrated annually on Saint Nicholas’ eve (5 December) in the Netherlands. By his side: his supporter, who goes through the chimney bringing gifts to the children. He becomes dirty in the chimney so he is called “Zwarte Piet” (= black Pete): therefore not related to any racism, because the black Pete is not an African. So the UN-verdict recently is absurd. But on the other hand: He’s doing a slaves job – what do YOU think?
