Mensagem:  You know something, upon reading the part that stated the instructor is African-American, I was extremelly delighted. Roles such as this one, /African-Americans in positions of authority/ are rarely seen in Brazil. In Brazil, Blacks are where African-Americans were 100 years ago. For instance, I bet that none of the students in the class are Black or at least don't classify themselves as such, despite the fact that they would be classified as such under a jim crow(one-drop rule)system. In fact, why don't you wait a few weeks as they become more confident and obtain more vocabulary and ask them VAGUELY about the issue of race in Brazil. I can assure you that they will vehemently deny any existence of racial prejudice in Brazil. Now, in a country where more than half of the population is Black and yet a visible Black Middle Class is virtually inexistent, any honest person ought to seriously suspect such convention, i.e. that racism doesn't exist in Brazil.
