Ook gemeente Amsterdam schaft Zwarte Piet eindelijk volledig af

Het begint er steeds meer op te lijken dat de Nederlandse maatschappij begint in te zien dat Zwarte Piet niet kan. Na RTL stapt nu ook gemeente Amsterdam over van de Zwarte Piet naar de Schoorsteenpiet tijdens de intocht op 13 november.

Om discussie te voorkomen besloot de gemeente opzettelijk het nieuws pas laat naar buiten te brengen. Op deze manier zou er weinig discussie plaats vinden over het besluit. Ook in andere steden begint het besef te komen.
