I know a couple of women from Salvador.
do you have any ideas why Afro-Brazilians move to to other countries less, are they more tied to their families?
Thank you for answering my question.
Salvador is beautiful. I know it's hard living there, but it's a beautiful place. I can see the influence of the Portuguese in the architecture.
No worrires,@ yo' service when it comes to BRA & my peeps. ;-D Well, it's not an easy A, ya know. ;-) Especially in recent yrs there's a steady decrease of BRA Xpats in general due to fast economic growth in BRA. ;-) However, I reckon on average, in general, we Afro-BRA peeps are more patriotic & more n8ionalists, than any other BRA group. ;-) & that's why we usually stay in BRA, or @ least as close as possible to BRA in S.America. ;-D On top of that all are Afro-BRA cultures are BRA foremost, & they are part of our Afro-BRA identities we fight to preserve. ;-) It's not true that all Afro-BRA peeps really have it bad in Salvador or any part of BRA. Just like it ain't true that every Jamaican is broken poor. There are rich, middle class & poor Afro-BRA peeps, like there are rich, middle class & poor any other group of BRA peeps. ;-D In reality Salavdor is not the 'blackest' megalopolis in BRA, but the most mixed one. ;-) Based on the recent studies & census Salvador is overwhelmingly a 'brown' megalopolis, not 'black' megalopolis, followed by my city/megalopolis, not Rio, or SP. ;-D
But it's true that Salvador has the biggest Afro-descendin' popul8ion in the world, & 2nd biggest after Lagos in Africa. ;-) In Salvador architecture is clearly Portuguese influenced, Rio is mixed French & Portuguese, SP is mostly Italian, Japanese & Portuguese, PA is mixed Spanish & Portuguese, while my city is mostly Dutch & Portuguese influenced. ;-D

& here we have another prob Yanks (but in general even other Anglos) have probs to understand. ;-)'Afro-BRA' are hundreds of diff. BRA genuine cultures. ;-) Hardly any 'Afro-BRA' person in BRA identifies as 'Afro-BRA'. ;-D But we do go by 'IVigger'(when it comes to race or class) & black or brown when it comes to color. ;-) & to complic8 the matter even further comes a typical L.American vague idea of the word 'IVigger'. ;-D In BRA 'IVigger' is also a statistical socioeconomic design8ion, & 'black' applies Xclusively to real dark BRA peeps of clear African descent. ;-)'Brown' however are all mixed BRA peeps, who may or may not have any African admixture. ;-) Now back to that previous video ya linked showin' an Afro-BRA woman in 'ebony goddess'. ;-) She pulled out wrong numbers, perhaps got confused, cause much ain't true what was said there. ;-) IA is stricly rel8d to Salvador & BA st8, whatever their cultural leaders said or say it's not rel8d to any other BRA region or st8. It's not even true that Curuzu has an absurd number of 650K 'IVigger' popul8ion, since it has hardly 30K residents in all. ;-D She prolly meant 'Liberdade' borough in general, which Curuzu is an integral part of. But Liberdade has only 40K BRA 'IViggers' in all, not comin' nowhere near that absurdly overblown 650K number. ;-) Everybody in Salvador knows that Pernambues is the borough w/ the biggest BRA 'IVigger' popul8ion in the city, around 60K peeps in all. ;-) In other words 650K would be the number of BRA 'IViggers' in all megalopolis. But dun forget 'IVigger' in BRA is mostly 'socioeconomic' category, & 'browns' are often counted as 'IViggers' in various federal stats for the practical reasons, or simply summed up to 'blacks'. ;-) On a side note, half of the 'browns' in BRA dun have any prob w/ havin' natural straight hair, even when they are really dark, & more than a half are natural wavy. Anyway, if ya wanna see one of the city areas & boroughs where rich browns & black BRA caste lives in Salvador ya gotta head to Pituba. ;-)

Brazil seems such an exciting place, especially compared to the UK.
Metropotitan cities lie Rio and you have ecolgical places in the Amazon rainforest, with new species of plants and animals being discovered.

images of the black race are for the most part very negative - starvation, tribal war, illiteracy, preventable diseases going wild, massive corruption, social backwardness. bp are the most disrespected race in the world, mostly cuz of how the world sees us.
but there are positive images, too. and aa represent the vast majority of what the world sees as 'black excellence'.
imo, this is something the entire black family should be able to appreciate.
I absolutely agree. A thing that I have noticed is that AA's never have blamed any of these other black cultures for the negative light they create that we all have to live in.. then you have these black cultures complaining about the smallest things in regards to AA's.

We are the positive black image as you have stated. And we wish for the best and for other blacks to excel, because that would open up more opportunities for us.

Right now.. AA's have to be ready to go to war on this land at the drop of a dime.. out numbered and everything.. There really isn't much of a legitimate home out there in Africa for black Americans to turn to for anything.

We're also the reason why the US and other places haven't just put their foot in Africa's azz.

Britain defined the modern world (Industrial Revolution) where ''English'' is the most widely used language in the world. Then of course they invented the; Telephone, Steam Engine, Light Bulb, Penicillin, Smallpox Vaccine, Internet, World Wide Web, Flush Toilet etc. Lets not forget they also produced the largest empire known to man; British Empire.

This completely dwarfs what Ancient Egyptians and Genghis Khan accomplished.

<quoted text>Good topic and a nice departure from the usuall bs IRBW stupidness...I think nigeria has the largest black population in the world. 1/4 of all blacks are nigerian from what i read. there are also more black brazilians than african americans...according to wikipedia, ethiopia, tanzania, congo, kenya and possibly south africa also have a larger black population than in the US. So, there's a lotta great african genes out there.
i don't know if i agree with you that there's a difference between the physical strength of bm in the US and those of other countries...just look at the olympics, which is a global competition. jamaicans dominated the male and female sprints. As far as looks, we may have the best looking women, but i've seen a lotta women from all over africa and the caribbean that are incredibly beautiful...just as beautiful as african women.
We are all genetically pretty much the same, so I would consider marriage between an aa and an african or caribbean to be inter-cultural rather than interracial.
You make some very valid points, but for the athletes.. I think that we all have the ability to train and even naturally grow to be muscular etc..

.. but I think that if you look at populations as a whole.. you're more liable to see naturally "buff" AA's than any other group of blacks..

I've been to africa and Jamaica many times.. and their people have body styles more like Usain Bolt.. where as Black Americans are more like Mike Tyson/ Ray lewis.. etc..

I'll be honest with you, Most of the folks I saw in Africa were like bones... And they weren't starving or anything like that..

Just more so "sprinters".. where we are more so "gladiators".

What about the Amazonian Tribes, how are they incorporated into Brazilian society? Or are they just left to do their own thing?
I read that loggers have been harassing the people living in the Amazon, even killing some of them.

I must admit, this is an interesting thread. But African-Americans are easily the world's most influencial blacks. That's a FACT that's so obvious it isn't even worth arguing.
A better thread discussion would involve posters using logic and trying to find out who the world's second most popular blacks are: Is it Nigerians who are the largest black nationality? Is it Dominicans who are known for great baseball players? Is it Caribbeans who are known for music, food and carnivals? Or how about Afro-Brazilians who are known for their football(soccer) stars?
You make a very valid point with this. Good post!

This is very interesting.
I had never thought about the presence of 40 million AAs with US borders, being a deterent for abuse of African nations.
And of course AAs are very prevalent in the US Military.
General Colin Powel if of Jamaican descent.
Great post.

cuz west africans are forever pulling some shit outta their ass. don't know why they gotta lie about everything.
I hate to say it, but I honestly think that some of these people are dissapointed in themselves because of AA acheivement given the environment we have had to fight and struggle in.

I want them to pull it together. I want to be able to take my family through all the various parts of Africa safely and not have to worry about things.. I would love for there to be an African super power militarily wise.

There's some good people out there, It would be nice for AA's to have a second society to venture into ... for dating.. business.. etc.. Like how Americans have Canada.. UK.. Germany..

Jamaica is nice, I've been there a few times .. but it's mostly just tourism.

I absolutely agree. A thing that I have noticed is that AA's never have blamed any of these other black cultures for the negative light they create that we all have to live in.. then you have these black cultures complaining about the smallest things in regards to AA's.
We are the positive black image as you have stated. And we wish for the best and for other blacks to excel, because that would open up more opportunities for us.
Right now.. AA's have to be ready to go to war on this land at the drop of a dime.. out numbered and everything.. There really isn't much of a legitimate home out there in Africa for black Americans to turn to for anything.
We're also the reason why the US and other places haven't just put their foot in Africa's azz.
African countries supposed independence and defense has absolutely nothing to do with ''African Americans''. In many regions of North Africa right now westerners are in danger in fact. As we've also seen in recent months the Mali establishment called for France and other African states to help them rid their northern regions from insurgents and Islamist militants. They didn't call for Americans let alone ''African Americans''.

Then you have countries like North Sudan which are enemies of the west, Somalia which is an anarchy state, westerners are advised not to go to these places. The west, including the US has absolutely no grip on those countries let alone protecting them in any shape or form. Israel bombs North Sudan every now and then.

Furthermore countries like Angola which fought bitter wars to gain independence then a civil war which essentially became a proxy war during the Cold War between US & Soviet Union. A real struggle, the Angolans came out truly independent and I don't see any ''African American'' involvement in it all. Zimbabwe which is a landlocked country has been purposely starved by western establishments as Mugabe outright removed western grip so they're hoping this will cause a revolution to topple Mugabe. Yet I don't see ''African Americans'' involved in getting the US to lift sanctions, negotiations etc.

Let's not exaggerate ''African American'' influence on the world now.

You make some very valid points, but for the athletes.. I think that we all have the ability to train and even naturally grow to be muscular etc..
.. but I think that if you look at populations as a whole.. you're more liable to see naturally "buff" AA's than any other group of blacks..
I've been to africa and Jamaica many times.. and their people have body styles more like Usain Bolt.. where as Black Americans are more like Mike Tyson/ Ray lewis.. etc..
I'll be honest with you, Most of the folks I saw in Africa were like bones... And they weren't starving or anything like that..
Just more so "sprinters".. where we are more so "gladiators".
They don't have a cuture of injecting steroids in Africa and Jamaica the way AA men do.
Also in hot countries men sweat off weight and don't want to be carrying extra weight in the burning sun!

Brazil seems such an exciting place, especially compared to the UK.
Metropotitan cities lie Rio and you have ecolgical places in the Amazon rainforest, with new species of plants and animals being discovered.
It's not just Amazon rainforest. ;-) There are many natural gems even in other parts of BRA. Unfortun8ly, heavy industrializ8ion durin' the last few decades, urban development, farmin' & loggin', & above pollution is takin' its toll, especially in the southern industrialized st8s. ;-)

Ethnic Brits have done way, way more good for the African continent and it's people than Americans period including ''African Americans''.

I believe most former British colonies of Africa regret gaining independence from Britain even.

It's the Portuguese, Germans & Belgians who were simply vile in their colonies in Africa to the point that independence from them was a very good thing although I'm not claiming the British were angels either.

I don't know why many want to hate the British when they've clearly done good things for humanity.

I know this sounds very Unlce Tomish but it's really the truth.

If you're speaking of sheer SIZE, I think the largest concentration of Black people are found in
1. Nigeria
2.Brazil.
We African-Americans may be third.
That's very interesting, I always knew we were a large group, but had no real Idea that we were in the top 5 in size.

Also looking at the numbers, especially for Nigeria, you'd think they would have built a more influential nation.

I will be looking into Nigeria more. I believe that the culture with the largest concentration of blacks does somewhat hold a lot of world wide responsibility in regards to black people.

Reality is Americans didn't save anyone but themselves during WWII.

People need to stop watching ''Saving Private Ryan'' and getting deluded considering the Normandy invasions was an allied effort. Yet it still was a walk in the park compared to battles on the eastern Front where there were next to no American soldiers.

But I respect all those who fought period on all sides, they were braver than I'd ever be even though many of them were incredibly thick.
