I read that the United Nations wants to ban Black Peter because it is 'racist' ..... old traditions are always under threat from so-called 'modern thinking'.
Long may he live!

He was best friend of most children, but that is not allowed anymore. The "brownies" told them it is forbidden to like Black Peter. So, who creates racism?
