National Bird of the Netherlands
Introducing the national bird of the Netherlands: The White What-Me-Worry.
Extremely common throughout the Lowlands. Virtually immune to changes of habit or thought. Generally tolerant of those that do not challenge its territory or status, but prefers the company of its own and can be extremely aggressive towards even local birds perceived to be of alien origin. Often suffers from I’m-Not-Racist-Butt.*
(Wiktionary definition of “What Me Worry”: “a nonchalant attitude towards potential criticism, not caring about what other people think, confident and self-possessed.”)
Note: The actual national bird of the Netherlands is the Bonaire, otherwise known as the Caribbean Flamingo. The choice of this harmless and colorful tropical bird too surely has nothing to do with issues like colonial legacies and racism that people seem to get so worked-up about elsewhere…
*A condition in which the denial of racism is accompanied by racist attitudes or statements.
