Hungarian town ‘too white’ for EU’s culture capital contest

A jury has decided that one of the participating towns in the European Capital of Culture contest (EKF 2023), is “too white and there are not enough migrants”, an online Hungarian news portal reported.

    With only seven semi-finalists left, the Hungarian town of Székesfehérvár thought a promotional film showing the town’s most attractive sites, including happy couples and smiling children playing, would up their chances of winning.

    But the EU’s jury rejected their submission and instead denounced Székesfehérvár’s debut film: “There are too many happy white people and crosses, and not enough migrants,” the jury declared.

    One of the European Union’s officials complained: “This is the propaganda film for white Christian Europe; everyone is white, happy and dancing in the streets.”

    The film was also uploaded on YouTube, Hungarian news website 888.hu reported.

    The mayor of the Hungarian town, András Cser-Palkovics, gave a press conference about the decision of the jury on Wednesday. He expressed his misgivings about the decision of the jury, explaining that their opinions were solely based on current political issues.

    The mayor said the criticisms by the film committee against Székesfehérvár were surprising: “We had left the poor and the migrants out of the film, but at the same time, there were too many crosses, churches, and even worse, the attitude of the city, because they regarded this as a [negative] value.”

    One member of the Commission and one Belgian politician objected to the fact that the foundation and identity of the application was determined by Greek, Roman and Christian history.

    “Yet this value system gives the European diversity which makes us proud of Europe and for which I say that this hearing was not a European-style hearing. Neither in style nor in the content was it about searching for a European Capital of Culture,” said the Mayor, announcing that he would ask the General Assembly to reject the jury’s complaints.

    The jury decided to recommend the entries of Győr, Debrecen and Veszprém as finalists for the European Capital of Culture.

      The EUstocracy would be easier to bear if they’d at least display their arrogance elegantly. Instead they display their disdain of us with the same effort they attack everything else they do.
      When do we realize that the peoples of Europe are giants that only need to wake up to shake easily off this nuisance?
