RE: The story of Black Pete and St.Nicolas
First off, this was a really amazing post. I'd seen a post about Black Pete earlier, and though I'm not from the Netherlands was shocked to hear the explanation was a chimney. Racism is somewhat prevalent world wide, to what degree I won't know until I start traveling. Mostly I think it's ignorance, so it's important to educate people by interacting with them. Good job in doing that here.
