Whoa. So, we just caught wind of a recent legal challenge that tried to take Tintin In The Congo off shelves in Belgium. The same appeal has been attempted in a few other countries like France and the UK, but there hasn't been much progress. The legal team, which represents Congolese immigrant Bienvenu Mbutu Mondondo and the Belgian Council of Black Associations, was recently told by the courts that their appeal had been denied and the book in question held no prejudice nor showed any malice, even going as far as to label the content as "gentle and candid" humor.
Smh. What do you guys think? Gentle and candid? This is racist as sh*t!
