Belgian Foreign Minister One Of Many To Particpate In Parade Of White Dudes In Blackface

Belgian Foreign Minister Didier Reynders was gleefully posting pics of himself in blackface on his blog earlier this week to honor this “traditional” Belgian parade dating back to 1876, you know, when colonialism was all the rage! The Noirauds Festival is supposed to “honor blacks” by dressing up as African nobles. How about nope.

King Phillipe himself actually did this back in 2013 when he was crowned prince, so what’s the fuss right? Remember the brutal exploitation and arbitrary violence during the colonialist Belgian Congo? Might want to do something other than walk around mocking these people in 2015. Seriously, GTFO white people. [BBC]
