For Roet In Het Eten I wrote a piece in Dutch about a new study promoted by the same people behind LovingDay.nl, which claims that the VOC was a (non-problematic) multicultural organisation.
In collaboration with Chandra Frank I wrote a piece on LovingDay.nl, a problematic celebration of mixed relationships and their offspring at De Balie in Amsterdam.
I wrote an article for Litro in the UK detailing this year’s Zwarte Piet debate and why the Dutch reputation for tolerance isn’t all it’s cracked up to be, in which I also briefly touch on what it means to be of Dutch-Indonesian descent in the Netherlands.
This column first appeared on Mart Radio for Roet in het Eten. Due to an error there is no recording of my first radio performance. I might put up an English translation at a later date.
