    Sweden Turns Pippi Longstocking Into Homeless Roma Migrant Living In Stockholm Ghetto

    In a new version of the children's story, to be broadcast despite initial objections from the creator’s family, the naughty ginger heroine will become a Roma “warrior against injustice” living in a troubled immigrant suburb.

    Pippi in Rinkeby is to be transmitted as a radio series on state-funded Radio Sweden not just in Swedish, but popular minority languages, including Romanian and Arabic. The story, in which Pippi is a homeless migrant, who inhabits a car wreck, will then be published as a book.

    "She is the world's strongest and most self-sufficient girl and takes total care of herself. Everything is as in the original, but we have made it our own version," 12-year-old Felicia Di Fransesco, who helped develop the story in a children’s writing workshop, told Sweden Radio.

    Author Astrid Lindgren’s first Pippi Longstocking book was published in 1945, became an immediate success, and remains the most popular Swedish-authored literary series around the world.

    As it remains under copyright, Gunilla Lundgren, the teacher in the writing workshop that updated the narrative, faced an uphill battle to get publishing permission from the family of Lindgren, who died in 2002.

    "We told the relatives about the project and they said no, because everyone wants Pippi on clothes and candy and in hospitals,” Lundgren told Sweden Radio.

    However, after she told the estate that proceeds would go to help fund a children’s library in Romanian capital Bucharest, the family relented, and gave permission for publication, though retaining approval of the text.

    Despite the family’s acquiescence, the new production is almost sure to reignite a culture war that has raged around changes to the portrayal of naughty and adventure-loving “strongest girl in the world, who lives alone in a colored house in the forest.”

    The Pippi Longstocking saga has already been bowdlerized, after her description as a daughter of “King of the Negroes” was criticized as being unsuitable to modern tastes, while her adventures abroad were described as promoting “colonial racist stereotypes."

    Absolutely disgusting. Is Pippi well-known outside Scandinavia?

    The actor who played here grew up to be a total SJW from what I understand...

    Astrid Lindgren (1907 - 2002) and Pippi. The real ones!

    If you're older than 30 you would be very familiar with Pipi Longstocking in the Low Countries too, then you almost certainly saw the movies/series as a child or you did read the books. Pipi Longstocking was very popular over here, but she's barely mentioned at all these days except for reasons of nostalgia.
    “We think that we are born today tabula rasa without a history, but man has always lived in the myth. To think that man is born without a history within himself — that is a disease. It is absolutely abnormal, because man is not bom every day. He is born into a specific historical setting with specific historical qualities, and therefore, he is only complete when he has a relation to these things. If you are growing up with no connection from the past, it is like being born without eyes and ears and trying to perceive the external world with accuracy. Natural science may say, “You need no connection with the past; you can wipe it out”, but that is a mutilation of the human being.” – Carl Gustav Jung, 1957

    She is well-known in Germany. Today children in Germany still watch the movies from the 70s. The books are not that much known, however, they got some attention in the last years, when the word "Negroking" was removed for "South Sea King".

    That's what evil does.
    Most people think as they are trained to think, and most people make a majority.
