I spent the last 24 hrs (plus my entire life) looking into Brazil and it’s anti-black society. The Brazilian government, much like the US, denies its history and whenever you hear someone say there isn’t racism in Brazil, they are likely oppressed and ashamed of their Blackness. Slavery in Brazil lasted for 300 years and was the last country to abolish that nasty shit.
Mid 19th century, the government decided that Blackness was what was stalling Brazil’s development so they created incentives for white europeans to migrate. Most Brazilians have a degree of African ancestry; the Black population was then and is now the majority. A lot of Brazilians deny their Blackness by only identifying themselves as “morena” or “mulatta”. 100% of the media is white and does not represent the majority even slightly. Even finding Black dolls in Brazil is a challenge. In the past decade, homicides among whites have decreased 24 percent. But among the Black population they have increased 40 percent. In Brazil, Black is still considered a handicap, invisible, and ugly. I’m looking at my dad like, beeche you are definitely not white so idk why we haven’t talked about this before. Shit is real. Anti-blackness is REAL Y’ALL.
