Reply to "Look How Racism in Brazil Rears Its Ugly Head for Black Woman Deemed Too Dark to Be Carnival Queen"

 

"Carnival" has its origins or roots in West African Cultural Rituals, Music and Dance, though it appears that the modern-day festivals may also have taken on Western and/or modern corruptions of such festivals:  

 

CARNAVAL OR THE FEAST OF OSIRUS

"Carnaval in Brazil as far as many Afro-Brazilians are concerned is connected to the ancient Yoruba and Egyptian festivals. In fact, there are some who connect Brazilian carnaval to the ancient Egyptian Feast of Oisirus, which was spread to West Africa most likely by the descendants of the Yoruba. Some sources point out that the Yorubas migrated from Egypt during the time of the Exodus. Others point out that the Yoruba origins is in Sudan at a later period. Still, there are very strong connections between the Yorubas and the ancient Egyptians ond Kushites (Nubians) of ancient Sudan."
