Tintin is a cartoon character from the Belgian author Hergé.

Generally known in Congo, popular for some, because it's funny or because its counterfeit goods
sell well on the black market, hated by others because of the stereotypical colonialist
way congolese people are pictured in its album Tintin au Congo. A similar controverse
exists for the album Tintin au pays des soviets (Tintin in the land of the soviets).

The word tintin is often used to depict a cartoon character in general. Sometimes as an insult.

It might happen that children who are not used to see white people, but know Tintin well
from the cartoons, might think they are seeing Tintin when they see a white person.
