Quote:Washington: Belgium's Foreign Minister Didier Reynders has been heavily criticised for upholding a 133-year-old tradition and dressing up in blackface.

He posted an image of himself taking part in a rally in Brussels organised by Les Noirauds, a society founded in 1876 under patronage of the Belgian monarchy that raises funds for children's charities. The society distinguishes itself by dressing up as supposed "African noblemen" - blackening their faces while wearing anachronistic top hats and white ruffs. Reynders described the tradition as a bit of "joy and good humor."

i dont see whats so offensive about it, its not an issue in Australia to paint your face black as a joke..

is it only Americans that put shame on doing so?

my friend came in full body black paint to my 30th as Penis Williams, she had a mini tennis racket in her hand, a gold bikini on, and a penis like fluffy, soft toy coming out of her bikini bottoms and it didnt offend anyone..

ppppffffttttttt!!!!!

we lost Golliwogs, my fav biscuits growing up and an Aussie icon.. it wasnt so much about it being black actually (shows that is such a non issue here chuckle.gif) it was the name.. wog is a slang word we use to describe new australians, its kind of offensive chuckle.gif but again no one gave a ğck , until some woman formed a group of other women with dry vagina's and banned them..

lol no I don't think so. I think it's representing some native jewelry. Slavery was not a very known concept here to my knowledge.
