I was initially very excited to see this segment of “Family Tree” on Disney today, because it featured real Indonesian food! Except I couldn’t really relate to it, because the food was presented by the colonizing Dutch and not real Indonesian people. It’s cool and different that you’re white but you eat ethnic food, but I’d much rather see an Indonesian native and an Indonesian immigrant present those foods with their families instead of a Dutch-American and a kid from the Netherlands on TV showing Indo food. Colonialism was the word that came to mind when I saw this.
