Re: Brazil and "Quilombos".....more after effects
Who knew that Brazil had the largest black population in the world after Nigeria?
Hmmm...doubt it very much!
It leads to the definition of "Black"
I've been in Rio for a while and just checked some figures right now:
Percentage of "completely" black people : 11%
Percentage of "Mixed" (more than 1/8 black blood) 22%
Percentage of white people: 55%
(The missing percentages are Amerindians and mixed Indians)
Total population of Brazil: 186 Million.
Total population of Nigeria: 127 Million.
