The painting bellow is a prime example of racism in the Netherlands at the time? You’re following? Unfortunately these drawings taint the history that we are meaning to tell to its fullest. Without the documentation of time we have no way of progressing. These paintings usually, according to Blakely, depict black people in a weak position. To further elaborate, they depict black people as slaves and property. A Shameful history like a lot of countries share in solidarity, but it is one that is slightly unique in the sense that powerful black figures were present at the time. As burdensome as it may get, the most accurate timeline we keep, the higher the chance we prosper as a people.
