It's still very much a SLAVE culture. The whole idea of the carnival is showing female slaves on moving auction block nude dancing for massa and his boys. And racial social amalgamation is a part of it. It is the MAIN of it. And done deliberately. Cuz the lighter females were sex slaves who lived in the big house and were bred for the liking of the buyer-method adopted from the Arab slaver. The darker female slaves-producers of pickaninnies and field hands lived in huts south of the plantation house. So just like India, Brazil too have a form of caste system used against the descendants of slaves ported here by the Portugese, French and the Dutch. It's a shame that these African offsprings don't realize that in Brazil and other places where dark-skinned people were taken....are the SAME folks. And the only folks who can produced an array of beautiful skin tones with the same parents. So why do we discriminate against ourselves....why? And then turn around and say how awful massa is-when we are most awful to ourselves when we CONTINUE doing stupid ass shyte like this color stroke phenomena. Whose gon hear the cry for black power when it is drowned in self-hate? We must rise above this. Now is the time to show solidarity-not colonialism separatism. But!
