Dutch gallery under fire after removing offensive terms from its artworks’ titles and descriptions in case they cause offence

Young Negro GirlA top European art gallery has come under fire after removing controversial terms such as ‘negro’ and ‘Mohammedan’ from the descriptions of its artworks over fears they could cause offence.

The Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam has been accused of pandering to political correctness after taking the decision to remove terms which may be deemed offensive from around 200 titles and descriptions of artworks in its collection.

    At least one wealthy liberal will publicly burn an expensive piece of famous European art soon in protest of it’s offensive nature.

    I’m offended by the ridiculous lengths that P.C will go. I had no idea that the Dutch were called kaas kops. I would say they are lokshen kopfs. Or is that being niggardly? ;););)

    Are you banning them in ME countries too? I thought not.

  • Martel’s son

    A ‘feel-good’ action that is disgraceful to the rich native Dutch art tradition. It does nothing but give support to those who would burn the art regardless of how it is titled.

    Speaking of Art, how about a bit of Mo in hell? Lighten the mood a bit. 😉

    What the fuck is wrong with ‘Mohammedan’?
    By the way, ‘You might also like’ is very annoying indeed!

    Racist Black Sams’s Club CEO—Imagine the outcry had a White CEO done this.

      The two of them don’t even realize how racist and sexist they’re being.

    It doesn’t matter. In less than 10 years all the actual art will be destroyed by their new koranimal overlords.
