Maybe the OP should stop blaming Rio’s inhabitants instead of the people who put them there.
Balsnaro should be reminded that Brazil did not officially abolish slavery till nearly the 20 the century
That was many years after the United States abolished slavery
You reap what ya sow, Bal.
You’re blaming somebody for a problem that you’re own ancestors created
Yes, 1888 was date here. Quite late, indeed. Whatever was left of it, anyway, because way before that, the sons of slaves were free when they were born, the ones older than 60 too, buying their freedom was achieved by many before 30 after the 1700's. Also, quilombos and other types of refuges made running away easy and the farmers usually didn't bother. And also, ships were bringing in more Africans, who heard this was a much better place to live than that wonderful Africa.
And after that, they were allowed to cultivate lands and there was no KKK persecuting them here.
They weren't being segregated in schools or buses, they were allowed to go to the most beautiful and prosperous places in Brazil, like Rio and São Paulo.
Also, miscegenation worked as a liberal's dream here. African culture and religion here was much more accepted and incorporated the in the US, for example.
What you see there in the videos are the result of lax laws, hypocrisy and demagogy at very high levels.
I'll tell what's the real matter here. People lived from the generous land and the tropical climate made it very easy for a long time.
And it was ok for a long time. But then, progress came and living of the nature suddenly became hard and demeaning.
People gave their lands for nothing, all moved to the big centers under, gasp, guess who, the first liberals governments we had here, who DESPERATELY needed those votes in the capitals in the center-west and southeast.
And of a sudden, slums popped up everywhere, people became dependent on handouts and welfare. Crime became rampant and the proximity to countries that produce 99% of all the coke in world didn't help much either, with Americans and European financing the drug trafficking.
So save me from your uninformed bullshit and "slavery is the cause" crappola.
