4:38 pm
giving the government resources to deliver some more distribution. the question as to whether redistribution takes place will be open. people are voting for michelle bachelet, because they expect her to deliver distribution, to make the country more equal. that will be the biggest challenge. in fact, she will need to move to more equality, otherwise the high popularity will lead to disappointment. >> i get the ongoinger of inequality. chile - the country is prosperous. it's the wealthiest country in south america. why so much anger? >> well, this is not really an election about the roadmap. the roadmap is going to be the same. chile consolidated its democracy, and is moving towards a free market. they'll continue, regardless of who wins. this is an election about who the pilot will be, not the roadmap. people like michelle bachelet

4:40 pm
race campaigners say that's where he firmly belongs. at the heart of this is a simply question: is black pete honest fun. dutch tradition that should be left alone. or is he a symbol of racism, slavery, something that should not be around in the year 2013. what started as a discussion evolved into a debate and a fierce one at that. the man leading the campaign says as a result he has received death threats. >> if you have kids running home after school scrubbing the skin off their bodies because they are called dirty black thiefs. we have a problem. if we have elderly people that won't lose the house because they are terrorized, then we have a problem. >> is that happening? >> it is. >> black pete's fate is fought in the digital world. this is a tail of two facebook
