Efteling is in conversation with activist group over ‘racist’ attractions
The Efteling is like to have a conversation with an activist group Stop Oppresive Stereotypes, that on Facebook a page has been created on which comment is provided about ‘racist’ attractions in the park.
A spokesperson of the theme park confirms the opposite NU.nl after prompt notification to Looopings.nl.
The Facebook page uses the logo of The Efteling, with below it the text “World full of racism’.
Especially the attractions Monsieur whiterabbit aka stephen, who has a large dark-hued cannibal in the middle of multiple cooking shows, and the Carnival Festival are under fire. The last mentioned attraction, that 275 dolls count, has only five dark figures: all African bushmen.
“Oppressions begin with stereotypes,” writes the group. “Efteling would this kind of business can know when they’re here spend money on. Non-white children for Efteling is unfortunately not important enough to have money to give. They reduce they prefer to stereotypes because they earn money with it.”
The organization, which now has 88 likes for their protest, also has an anonymous protestbrief with this blame to The Efteling sent.
The spokesman of the Efteling let us know “a day out for everyone, regardless of gender, race, political or sexual preference”. This is why the amusement park in conversation with the action group. “We would like to hear what the concerns are, as we have that for every complaint.”
The amusement park received earlier grievances about the possible racist nature of the two attractions. “But there are never a lot of been,” adds the zegsvrouw there.
