Black Pete: The Netherlands plan a nationwide consultation on the controversial tradition (http://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/europe/the-netherlands-plan-a-nationwide-consultation-on-the-controversial-black-pete-tradition-9670315.html)

Van der Laan has also proposed gradual changes to the appearance of Black Pete to take place over the next four years, including parting with his Afro-wig and golden earrings. "But I do think Black Pete will keep his black face paint, because he climbed down the chimney”, van der Laan said.
