Nice!

 

Nice that you can use the idiom in the U.S. not that your brother was an "indian".

 

Bytheway, where I grew up in Brazil the people who thought they were more upscale used to call the lower class "indios", "bando de indios", "indiarada".

 

Now I think it is just dangerous to call anybody "anything" in Brazil.

 

People seem to be really stressed out with everything that goes on in the bigger cities.
