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...

"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...

Brazil is trying to "Whiten" itself for America and the rest of Western Whites. This is happening everywhere Black people are in the Diaspora.

True the idea of "carnival"/mardi gras parts of it were interjected from the slave original culture brought from Africa who tribes celebrated the harvest and seasonal changes in their calendar. However, this tradition of adorning nude slave women on moving auctions....especially if ships came in during the festive period....this painting of and decorating the nude body became a custom...and the real reason for it got lost along the way..but it was to attract the slave buyers. Additionally,...

I also wanna add something a little of topic but about Brazil's history during slavery. The imported slaves also have a secret dance technique which was created in Brazil called capoeira. This rhythm movement was disguised as an Afro Brazilian traditional dance to fool massa but what it really was? A military hand to feet defense tactic [used in combat in Africa passed down generationally]. The Japanese stole the ownership of this and incorporated it in their culture with a new name: martial...

The sad part is, it was many Brazilian Black people that thought she was too dark. This Brazilian painting says it all. Black mother gave birth to a mixed daughter, daughter have child with a white man. Its a real foul mind set many Black people suffer from. I don't really care who people fall in love with but if its out of self loathing, its foul. But I have heard many white people say they are too white and desire darker skin white people, especially white people that live in England,...

What gets lost in all this is the fact that slavery was not initially racial, but was made racial, in America and the West once they figured out how dominate Black/African genes were. Another thing that is rarely, if ever, mentioned is the fact that in order for White people, [who had begun to question the morality of slavery], to participate in such a Crime Against Humanity without question, they had to villify, and demonize Black people in the minds of Whites, which would include Black...
