everyone is already so christmassy and im like wtf guys christmas season doesnt start until december 6th
This happened on Dutch television tonight, on Holland’s Got Talent semifinals.
This is the youth dance crew Reality. They perform a dance inspired by the life story of one of their members, Jimmy (the tall boy with the Macklemore haircut). Jimmy is gay, openly admitted to that on national TV (respect that, guys, he’s like sixteen and that takes so much guts), and this dance tells the story of the hardships he faced coming out.
You need to see this. You need to see this. This happened live on national television, on an extremely high-profile network show. I started crying around the 1:50 mark because I’d never seen something like that on a show like this before. It’s so loving and it’s so beautiful.
They could have chosen to just dance a general dance and blow the audience away by pure talent, but they didn’t. They allowed a gay teen tell his story on national TV, to show their support, to show that it’s okay to love who you love. They chose to allow two teenage boys to dance together. This happened, guys.
It’s beautiful. Seriously watch it. And know that they made it into the finals ♥

Is horrible. I’m so ashamed about the Zwarte Piet discussion in the Netherlands.
If anyone is hurt, no matter how small that group is, and we can change that by changing the colour of Piet (yes.. drop the “Zwarte” too. It’s “Sint en…
Nee, als ze zwarte piet veranderen in een andere kleur geloofd geen enkel kind meer. En zwarte piet is zwart door de schoorsteen, je begrijpt er niets van aangezien je geen geboren Nederlander bent.
I don’t want to fight, but that’s probably what this is going to be. But who cares..
Can you please explain to me how you get completely black from going through a chimney? I don’t get how that’s possible. And also how do you get a wig when you go through a chimney? I don’t know. Please explain this to me.
Children won’t believe in Pieten anymore if we change their colour? We could use the programs about Sinterklaas on tv to explain this to kids. We are creative enough to find a solution for this. Especially if you just introduce a few white (or whatever colour these might be, blue, green, multicultural) Pieten and make more and more white Pieten every year.
Oh.. and I’m pretty sure I was born in the Netherlands. My family tree from both sides of the family are pretty boring. Almost everyone was born in the Netherlands. But sure from my mom’s side we are from France, somewhere in the 16th century someone decided to walk to the Netherlands and live here.
