In Holland…GENERATIONAL DUTCH BORN Antillians i.e. Sint Maarteners, Aruban, Curacaoans who tend to have a darker complexion, are NOT labelled as Western like their Dutch European counterparts who are right now claiming ‘EQUALITY WITHIN THE DUTCH KINGDOM’. Asians in Holland are considered Western…WHY? What do you expect from the countries who kept our ancestors in cages in human zoos into the TWENTIETH CENTURY?
Holland is racist, but admitting racism would be admitting wrong. Rather than the racist Dutch government working on removing the blatant racism allowed in the Netherlands, they use crooked Antillian Government officials to justify it. Criminal MPs Grisha Marten and Theo Heyliger represents ALL of us… Rather than the racist Dutch government working on improving their Nazi image worldwide, they are busy spiting the poor Antillians, for the actions of wealthy government thieves. Holland is on the wrong side of the racism war, and they don’t seem to care. The hypocrisy and anti Black sentiment is ridiculous, but all the world is watching. Holland cares more about appearance than anything else. The way Dutch minorities are treated by Dutch European is shameful. It is funny how some Dutch called my blogging ‘bias’.
Statistics Netherlands (CBS) will no longer use the outdated concepts of ‘western’ and non-western ‘ reports that . According to a spokesperson, “the exit is in sight” and the terms will be phased out within a few years.
The Scientific Council for Government Policy (WRR) will shortly issue an advisory report calling on the government to no longer classify people with a migration background into these categories. According to the Council, this distinction is “not scientifically substantiated” and evokes “negative associations”.
According to the WRR, a subdivision into ‘western’ and ‘non-western’ makes a “ranking instead of a neutral juxtaposition”. This is especially the case with the second and third generation who were born in the Netherlands, but who are also given the designation ‘non-Western’. The report also speaks of “a colonial connotation”. There is also a degree of arbitrariness within the two categories. For example, residents from Japan and Indonesia are labeled as ‘western’, people from the former Dutch colonies of Curaçao and Sint Maarten as ‘non-western’.
The discussion around these outdated concepts is currently also being held at Utrecht University. It wanted to map its employees with the help of a CBS tool and used the categories Dutch, Western and non-Western for this. This led to strong resistance among some of the employees because it ‘maintains a debatable distinction’. The WRR agrees with those employees. https://joop.bnnvara.nl/nieuws/cbs-doet-stigmatiserende-termen-westers-en-niet-westers-in-de-ban
