The Netherlands have their own Santa. Every year, 'Sinterklaas' brings presents to children that have been nice. He's not alone though, his loyal servants called 'Black Pete' are there to help him out...
. But every year the discussion about the black-faced helper is getting more fierce and emotional. Is Black Pete a wonderfull tradition and great fun for children? Or is it a racist stereotyp and a throwback to the days of slavery? This year, even the UN decided to dive into the matter.
The discussion is way to emotional to capture in an infographic. But there's still the cold, hard facts about Black Pete that might help the argument one way or the other. And that's where an infographic may come in handy. Whichever side you're on and however you celebrate; happy holidays from Spijkermat Infographics.
