Mensagem:  How far did you go academically, Pat? I'm going on my third year in college. I know all about the Anglos, Saxons, Jutes, Danes, Etc. They were quite hostile and bloody towards each other. Anyway, this is not the point. You, yourself said that these terms "have little modern relavance". Why then do you continue to use the term "Anglo" when refering to White-Americans? Unless you mean to say Anglo (English)-Americans, specifically? Is that what you mean? In a way, I thought you pretty much made my argument all the more valid. My original point is that the term is exclusive and inaccurate. I instead suggested that you use the term EUROPEAN-AMERICANS when refering to White-Americans as a whole Anyway, your suspicion about Black Brazilians is absolutely true Blacks in Brazil occupy the bottom of the social ladder. And needless to say that you're right in stating that it would be harder for them to collect enough money to come to the United States. In fact, if one were to consider what the average Black person makes in Brazil, it would have to take decades for them to earn enough to pay for a ticket to come to the United States. Not to mention the almost impossible odds against them of getting a visa. No wonder most of the Brazilians you've met don't "look" like "typical" Blacks.
