Some "original" aristocrats might look at them with suspicion, but only a few would really feel uncomfortable should any of these fellows marry into the family.
    This thing has a name: it's called hypocrisy.

    A rich negro it's not a negro, but a "brownie/darkie". A rich light mullato is "white". The more money you have, the less melanine you have.

    Blacks and whites have a similarity here - blacks suffer the veiled racism wich Gothmog written about, and whites suffer the institutional racism, promoted by the government and the midia. The worst of all is that this racism is mostly a bias from mongrels towards african and european-brazilians.

    There are a few communities of preserved whites, deep in the south and in some isolated ares of south-east... and period. Maybe the italians are the most well preserved group, alone in their communities in the southern moutains and the hills of Rio Grande do Sul and Santa Catarina. The same way for the germans, but they are in outnumbered in comparison with italians.

    Even Gothmog said he has amerindian ancestry. That's sad...

On the other hand, the matrilineal heritage is 61% non-european (33% indian and 28% african). These numbers varies from region to region: 66% of the southern whites are truly european, while 54% of the northern whites have indian blood an 44% of northeasterners have african ancestry. Since, according to the last census, the so called whites constituted 51% of the total population of the country - which lies around 180,000,000 - it is pretty safe to say that Brazil has around 35,000,000 europeans. Although this is a small fraction of the country's total population, in absolute terms Brazil is the second most european country in the american continent and the tenth in the world.
    Whites in Minas Gerais State?.. Significant numbers of really whites you will only find in South Brazil and in a minor in São Paulo State.
    The question is why they consider as being ''white'' ...
