He as no other is the authority on what color the real Piets should have.
And in the movie now playing at Dutchc cinemas all of them remain dark brown or black:

The BBC report did not mention that the regional court ruling of zwartepiet being racist and in need of a review was repealed this week by the supreme court

if you have comments on anything ,
