You have to realize that you can't teach or save everyone.  Some people are just too deep in their own stupidity or ignorance to know any better.

Lol @ brown paper bag complexion. Yea even in our country, there are people that believe if Yuh hair don't look like type 4 or whatever....Yuh ain't black. But my grandfather is light brown east Indian and he says that HE is black, n that's how I always saw it growing up. If you're not white, and u r "light brown, brown or dark skinned whatever" u are coloured/black. U may not necessarily be AA. But mixed/Afro Latinas....and even east Indians I view as people of colour. Black is beautiful and we have such variations to us. Ppl believe that u have to only have certain features or only have very kinky hair to be black. I think it's just misguided.

Also....I could slightly understand y some ppl are so "afraid" of the black word....on our ID cards..it doesn't have whether u r causcasian or African or whatever..for example our ID cards would have eye color: brown or whatever and then they have your complexion, and they put whether it is light brown or brown or dark brown lmao. There is no white or black. So some ppl might migrate or vacation to america and b like 'black??? No I'm brown. my ID card says so' lmaoooooo. this is so funny. The world is really brainwashed by alot of things, and it's passed on from generation to generation.

She ain't black in Brazil. Her skin is "too light", her hair is straightened, and she got light colored eyes... she can claim that she is descendant of Brazilian indians.

btw, the first pic on the article posted by Alias shows Australians wearing the Brazilian jersey... I know because one of them got the flag and the guy has a pic of them with "kangaroos" written above it.

I am disgusted that people made fun of Marcelo for making the wrong goal by calling on his skin color and "bad hair" but no one thought that a black person did something right when Neymar made 2 goals because Neymar has light colored eyes, straightened hair, and I guess looks "less black".
