I spent the last 24 hrs (plus my entire life) looking into Brazil and itโ€™s anti-black society. The Brazilian government, much like the US, denies its history and whenever you hear someone say there isnโ€™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 Brazilโ€™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 โ€œmorenaโ€ or โ€œmulattaโ€. 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. Iโ€™m looking at my dad like, beeche you are definitely not white so idk why we havenโ€™t talked about this before. Shit is real. Anti-blackness is REAL Yโ€™ALL.

Can I care about your white, middle class feelings when I get off the phone with immigration? Oh yeah it's nothing just something about the fam getting deported.

Today teams of ICE agents aggressively swarm homes and workplaces in search of โ€œfugitive aliens.โ€ Drones hover over the border with Mexico. The DHS refers to undocumented immigrants that get swept up in its raids as collateral arrestsโ€”vocabulary that suggests warzone conditions in which the violation of civil liberties is necessary to protect national security. The immigration trap built over the past 30 years is an interconnected network of federal and local law enforcement that detains over 400,000 immigrants on any given day. Trump now controls it, and is already fashioning it into something even more brutal. Alan A. Aja, Alejandra Marchevsky

When white people get upset over generalizations (enter reverse racism isn't a thing) that I make of them I tell them I know them better than they know themselves because I've had to watch them my entire life. I've had to learn how to be like them because often times mimicking their actions meant staying employed, in school, and out of jail. I know all y'all, trust meh.
