#Blacklivesmatter ???

Black boys heading to the beach are interrogated by police and forced to prove they have fare for the ride home..
Read the dark side of the Rio Olympics and the disturbing reality of Latin American racism here. Puts our American issues on a whole different perspective... doesn't it?

It is ironic that the Olympic opening ceremonies seemed to focus on Brazil's significant African heritage, while at the same time black Brazilians are being kept away from the beaches, from the tourists, and from the games... and in May alone 84 of them were killed by the police.

Do you know what the silence means?

Abysmal cultural ignorance (North of the border) of what it means to be black in Latin America.
