Note from BW of Brazil: A few days ago we posted a story about a recent black empowerment march in the northeastern state of Pernambuco. The march was specifically organized to address the racist nature of Brazilian society that manifests against physical features that denote African ancestry, particularly afro-textured hair. Brazil’s African descendants have long co-existed with such sentiments but over the past few decades the cries of resistance and pride have become stronger and more organized. Today’s story simply represents yet another example of how people really feel beneath all of the rhetoric of “we are all equal”.
