Brazil- Protest against president features all-white upper-middle racism… etc…

Three Worlds One Vision

Note from BW of Brazil: Once again, another protest and once again Brazil shows how divided it is really is along lines of race and class. Just for the sake of context, if you haven’t already…

    Racism not unlike classism exist
    in all societies in developed and undeveloped world…
    Brazil no exception.
    Before racism we were divided by
    class and religion …today it’s is
    the politics that divides us.
    Politicians of every colour will
    use these tools to win support
    some cleverly others blatantly.
    Brazil is just another ‘divide and rule’
    tool of its political Cl-asses…and the
    flock follows…..🐐
    Most of the more clever politicians
    use the ‘united we stand divided
    we fall/fail argument to win over
    support…..
    In the Brazilian arena race and class
    is more important than policy.
    Unfortunately that is the road
    Brazil is taking. Sad !
    Not to mention endemic corruption.

    Ways I see it 🇧🇷

      You’re right, Kamtan, corruption is endemic in Brazil and has been this way for decades. Listening to the protestors, one would believe that the corruption started with Lula’s Workers’ Party.

      It’s a crisis situation. In the end, it will be the poor and underpaid workers who will suffer the most.

    Release of tapped phone calls between Lula and Rousseff sparks mass protests in Brazil

      Thanks for sharing the link, Cyril. Rousseff is desperately in need of support from people she can trust. But bringing Lula on as her Chief of Staff at this point is a bad move.

    Brazil: What lies behind the political chaos?
    In the latest chapter of Brazil’s political roller-coaster, the ex-president Lula was appointed as the government’s chief of staff, an appointment that was promptly suspended by a judge.
