Mensagem:  Dear Miguel. That's good to know and if one wants to do a parallel, the main difference is: here we always had a kind of censored racism, for it was guaranteed in our Republic Constituition in 1891 that all "Brazilian citizens are equal before the law" and back in 4 decades no-one puts an add looking for just white employees in the best qualifications, but it's a fact that it occurred "in off" our racism did not separate black from whites in restaurants or schools, but the gaze in people's eyes and jokes and nicknames like "macaco", "preto quando não caga na entrada, caga na saída" has always been a form to put blacks/mestiços/indians down. Thanks God, it's changing. there's a good romance about it called "Recordações do Escrivão Isaías Caminha" by Lima Barreto, which shows us the racism (this virus) in our society. José Roberto.
