The Context of White Supremacy welcomes the operator of the Black Women of Brazil website. The online resource “is a photographic and informational blog featuring a diverse array of Brazilian Women of African descent. As much of the English speaking world is not familiar with the history of African descendants in Brazil, it also features news, essays, reports and interviews spanning an array of topics including race, racism, hair, affirmative action, police brutality, etc. intended to give a more complete view of the experiences of black women in particular and black people in general in Brazil with a goal of provoking discussion through the lens of race.” Since the highest population of black people in the Western hemisphere resides in Brazil, this is a critical region of the planet to investigate. The 2016 Olympic games were hosted in Brazil, but the extravaganza didn’t help out black Brazilians at all. We’ll compare and contrast how Racism is typically discussed in South America with our general racial conversations in the US. We’ll also discuss President Trump’s immigration restrictions.
