    Brazilians of African descent demand equality



    Brazilians of African descent demand equality - Americas - Al Jazeera English
    Brazilians of African descent demand equality
    Eighty percent of Brazilians are originally from Africa and they say they suffer discrimination.

    Tens of thousands of Brazilians are renewing the decades-old struggle for racial equality, and are staging protests to draw attention to their grievances.

    Eighty percent of Brazilians are of African descent and they say they suffer discrimination.

    Al Jazeera's Rachel Levin has this report from Salvador.
    "Every onlooker is either a coward or a traitor." — Frantz Fanon

    “If there is no struggle, there is no progress. Those who profess to favor freedom, and yet depreciate agitation, are men who want crops without plowing up the ground. They want rain without thunder and lightning. They want the ocean without the awful roar of its many waters.” Frederick Douglass

    Want do they want?


    There's nothing holding them back from moving up the social ladder. The new consumer class of Brazil includes all races.


    Stop blaming racism for Brazil's economic disadvantaged. The social problems of the country have little to do with race.

    I can assure that they are the ones doing crime and living in the squalor, its time for Black people to make a living for themselves without begging for equality and a better life

    Chinks, why won't you be a more serious poster and at least debate instead of mocking other posters?

    That only works on small children and people who wear helmets for non sporting purposes.

    Will say this, I find it mildly amusing the way you and others speak to and on the day to day lives of black Brasilians.

    Why should she be serious with people like you who spew the type of ignorance that you did in this thread? Please.

    80% of Brazil is not of African descent, thats a lie

    I would say 50% of Brazil is of visible African ancestry, you have to remember that Brazil does not follow one drop rule like the US, so whoever quoted that 80% is probably American.

    Brazil is diverse. I don't think 80% of the population is black. I would say at least 60% have African ancestry.

    SALVADOR is said to be such...not the whole of Brazil. However, it is not impossible for Brazil to be 80% of African descent, as such heritage doesn't have to be visible to exist. The same can be said for its European heritage.

    If you understand that Brazil does not have the one drop rule, then you should know that a visibly "white Brazilian" may also be of African descent. That's why they have had issues with implementing affirmative action. "White-skinned" people are claiming their African heritage.
