Race & racism in Brazil

Stephanie Nolen published an in-depth investigative feature on race in Brazil ("Brazil’s colour bind")  for the Globe & Mail (31 July 2015). The piece tackles issues of inequality stemming from the intersections of race and class in Brazil historically and today, and speaks to the anthropological perspective that race is culturally constructed.

Bonus: A 3-minute video at the top of the article features multiple members of the same family (same parents) who are considered members of different races in Brazil.
