    I'm guessing Colin Nish was standing next to Mixu when he took picture 1.

    Yeah, it says that on the BBC report. There were a few protestors standing over the road from where we were.
    I didn't see the issue with this as we asked a Policman what the character was about and he said it was Sinterklaas' little helper elf and the reason he had a black face was from going up and down the chimneys delivering presents.
    Then I looked into it further when I came home and I think what the policeman told me is kinda what Dutch folk would like you to believe, but the little guy is portraying a black slave from the story/fable.

    Not sure if this is right but I lived in holland for a couple of years and what the Dutch told me was they used to scare the children and tell them that black was a child catcher and he stole kids from the streets.as I said not sure if they were taken the piss

    Only going on what Lars has told me, but he again says that the reason for the black faces is due to all the soot from the chimneys. In fact, he said that previously, the black faces would be made by using chimney soot.

    I really do think that's the PC story. If you check t'Internet you'll find out that he was a black slave that helped Santa.

    Every feckin year right enough..., more here.

    Black and white minstreals ain't dead yet but thanks to the UN a bit deader than last year. And I think I am right in saying that it was the Dutch gov who let the UN look at it as they wanted it to be a 'protected' event.

    I don't think you can call him a spas these days.

    Just say he's "special".

    We know what you mean and he'll be happy enough.

    You certainly are. Who else would give me a leg up onto a lion monument in Dam Square to get some better photos of sinterklaas and zwarte piete.
