Truth is in favor of you and me; for the truth of our enemies whom we have been serving here in the U.S.A. for over 400 years (whom we did not know to be our enemies by nature) is the truth that the Black Man must have knowledge of to be able to keep from falling into the deceiving traps that are being laid by our enemies to catch us in their way which is opposed to the way of righteous of whom we are members. ~ The Honorable Elijah Muhammad

Brazil, Colombia Grappling With Racism That Keeps Blacks on Bottom

For decades, Brazil touted itself as the most racially diverse society in the world, celebrating the idea that there was no racism in Brazil because its society was a melting pot made up of Brazilians with hues across the spectrum. But that idea of Brazil has been torched as the nation in recent years has had to confront the reality that Black and Brown Brazilians remain at the bottom of Brazilian society on every measure.

Brazilian universities have even instituted controversial American-style affirmative action programs to increase the number of Black and Brown young people with access to higher education.

This thinly veiled discrimination against darker skin is not just resigned to Brazil in South America. Other countries with significant populations of citizens with African ancestry, such as Colombia, are also grappling with how to curtail the widespread discrimination against Black people.  Africanglobe
