Black Petes get go-ahead

The Star Early Edition - - WORLD -

THE DUTCH ver­sion of Santa Claus, Sin­terk­laas, or Saint Ni­cholas, and his side­kicks, known as Zwarte Piet or Black Pete, ar­rive in Hoorn, north-western Nether­lands. A court rul­ing over a com­plaint that the city of Am­s­ter­dam had no right to au­tho­rise a pa­rade with Black Pete, be­cause he is a neg­a­tive stereo­type of black peo­ple, granted a per­mit for the pa­rade with Black Petes to con­tinue.
