Mensagem:  Hello, Miguel: Firstly, from about 5 years up to now, Brazilians are seriously re-think about their identities, now the black/mestiça population is increasinly gaining more concious about their conditions and about who they are,Brazilians can't classify them because our census asks each person about their "race" and there were about 130 different responses like: "Marronzinho"(little brown),"Cor de burro quando foge" and some incredable answers like these, I don't think if the mestiços/pardos would get better here if they considered themselves black, I don't know which methodology you follow, but I bet you heard about mamelucos (Brazilians Indians and Africans) so are mamelucos black? According to your methodology they are black, but some scholars here classify them as "Indian", In fact in American (depending on the state as you had pointed out) one with maybe one african descent would be consider black (even having a caucasian look), but I wonder what makes the black gens better than Indians and whites to be taken to classify someone, Is that methodology so simple that wouldn't allow the mixes? I had written something on Montagu's at College, and I didn't agree to what I read, I think this classification too simple, yet I am not an Antrhopologian to go further in my studies, and am asking others about "race" in Brazil, when I come up with something to confront or to confirm your studies I'll tell you. As the BRazilians census pointed out, being black in Brazil is one thing and in America is another. If you could read "O povo Brasileiro" you will see more details about our "race" history, then, our history demand a different strategy to surpass prejudice and misery because the nowadays conditions and history are different.
