About: How are Dutch people within a subculture related to outsiders?
‘The Negro might come out of the jungle, but the jungle will never come out of the Negro’. This is one of those Dutch statements, which few in Curacao can stomach. The Antillean community often despises the Dutch ‘elite’ who’s arrogance and bad habits have caused much upsets. The Dutch, also known as Makambas, flout and disrespect the rules. However, many of these Dutch locals feel that they themselves are discriminated against by the Antilleans
