This was a great video! I agree with a PP who said that it was eye-opening in how it showed the way blackness is viewed in the Caribbean and in South America.

I just wanted to say that I'm brazilian and I just loved to watch this video... In the beginning I thought "oh, no, another video made by foreigners saying that we have no racism here", but in the end it was just fantastic. Racial democracy is really a joke, as Abdias Nascimento said. I just missed to see the suburban areas of my city, Rio de Janeiro, because Cidade de Deus is more like a place where governement moved people who once lived in favelas in the rich areas of the city (we can see the green buildings, they were made by the governement along time ago). The suburban areas here in Rio are not like in the US movies, there are a lot of black people and bi-racial people, and we are as poor as (or maybe even more than) black people in favelas.
Thanks for posting the video, thanks a lot!

Great! that was the only one in the series that I wasn't able to catch. Thank you for sharing the link! :) This one and the one on Haiti/Dominican Republic (I am Haitian American with 1 Dominican grandparent) was very eye-opening to me in how blackness was viewed in the Caribbean and South America.
