Brazil always tried to sell that racial democracy crap to the world whenever it dealt with big events that attracts tourists like Carnival, Soccer, Samba, etc. And some people buy it. A couple years ago I was staying Rocinha in Rio and I had an English roommate. He was like in Brazil it aint about race, its about class. 

And Im like Fool we in the biggest favela in South America, all these dark faces and u trying to tell me this got nothing to do with race. But when we roll to Ipanema and Leblon, it magically becomes much whiter. Its crazy but cuz the favelas got some white faces, people think everyone is equally poor. They are uneducated on racial politics down there big time. I had to put my ex on game cuz she had no clue what racism was really about.

Don't do it. Seriously. If you value your sanity... 
You don't seem like the type who would travel and only stay in resorts.
I might be exagerating a bit but they are the absolute worse in all of Latin America.

I had a Dominican tell me she wasn't black nor African. I told I seen Spanish women in Spain with small beasts and flat asses. And I know the taino women ain't packing either. So where did it come from and same as those African drums. Quit lying.

I can understand the term "Black" Being confusing. But when they say they have no African in them. That is the real perplexing topic.

Well America helps push the idea that most Brazilian woman are tall skinny with a slight tan. Matter fact thats the image for most hispanics.

Please dont go to DR and fund that craziness
