Down in Brazil

Brazil has a current population of over 176 million people. It was a Portuguese colony that imported more African slaves than any other nation in the Western Hemisphere and was the last to abolish slavery (l888) after almost 450 years of exploitation.

Today, Brazil has the largest population of African descendants outside the continent of Africa. Its economy is among the world’s ten largest. It is also among the world’s most unequal societies measured by income mal-distribution. The richest 20% of the population (persons whose appearance resembles a European phenotype) possess two thirds of the national income; the poorest 20% (primarily Brown or Black) receive less than 3%.

  3. Thanks for visiting and supporting this site.

    History fascinates me more than the national narratives or the goofy myths taught in schools.

    Scroll through the site, there are a variety of voices from vastly different historical points-of-view and geography.

  5. Heya this is kind of of off topic but I was wondering if
    blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to
    manually code with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!
