Prime Minister Mark Rutte feels it is easier actually being black when playing Black Pete
So how does our Prime Minister handle tough questions about awkward cases like the Black Pete controversy of last December on an international stage?
Well, he doesn’t seem to have any problem with it at all. Like he doesn’t seem to have any problem with his atrocious pronunciation of English either, which seems to be a core requirement for becoming Prime Minister of the Netherlands.
I couldn’t believe my ears, but our prime minister REALLY said, in a tone of voice suggesting he’s making this really good joke, that you’re better off as a black person playing Black Pete because a real black person doesn’t have to get the black paint of his face later. Check the video here.
So we apparently have a Prime Minister who should not even have made it to f#cking high school class president. What the hell does he think he’s doing there? Addressing his stupid fratboy friends at some party?? You’re the Prime Minister of a NATION, you complete and utter pinhead! Like a colleague writer said, it is as if you’re reading a spoof article by De Speld, the Dutch equivalent of The Onion, only it is for real! Apparently we have this 46-year old adolescent who accidentily made it to Prime Minister.
Perhaps he will like to repeat this ‘joke’ to president Obama, who will be in the country soon.
