Tonight on the show, A report this week from Colombia by Jesús Karabalí said that the country’s Afro-Colombian community had set October 8 and 9 as days of protest against Soldado Micolta (Private Micolta), a blackface television character seen on the Sábados Felices (Happy Saturdays) show, broadcast by Caracol TV. According to the report, protesters went to the Caracol studios to speak out again the “racist content” found in several Caracol programs. The protesters also went to the government’s cultural offices as well. They are asking for a real dialogue and action about what they see is an inherent and long-standing problem not only in Colombia, but all over Latin America.
