I've been in Maastricht for 2 weeks and I've seen people on the street who are dressed as Zwarte Piet, companion of the traditional Dutch character Sinterklaas.
Some people find it racist because the character wears "blackface" which is offensive in the USA while some people believe it's just a longstanding Dutch tradition that has nothing to do with race. What is your opinion?
