In the Arab nation of Libya, black migrant workers were targeted, killed, maimed, and raped in a pogrom that ensured in the aftermath of the NATOaided revolution. The nation of Mauritania stripped the black population of their citizenship. The State of Israel rounded up sub-Saharan blacks and deported them as illegal immigrants. Black football players in Ukraine had banana thrown at them by racist fans. In Italy, a black footballer protested being called a monkey. Black pupils like Damilola Taylor in Britain are often targeted and hacked with knives. Argentine black populations have disappeared in history. In 1988, in Hohai University, China, a riot broke out against black people because they are dating Chinese girls with Chinese students shouting kill the black devils. Black students in India risk life in a denied culture of racism. In the United States, from Rosa Parks to Trayvon Martins, a racist-free society, is still a dream. This book investigates and reveals the art, the culture, the politics, the science, the sociology, the psychology, and the hypocrisy of the resentment against black people in a world that is said to be civilized. Why are black people so hated? What are the scientifi c, cultural, and historical factors that informed such negative perception and despicable mentality? The book navigates the mind-set of those who think to be black is to be cursed whether as individuals, a state, institutions, or an organization. Despite all the enormous achievements and advancements in all fi elds of human endeavors recorded by man, despite all the universal and natural values of freedom, fundamental rights and democracy as proclaimed by man, people of black colour are still despised, disrespected, and perceived differently. This book tries to exclusively dig out the truth and present it bare.
The absence of African History is one of the major gaps that refers to consequences on the Brazilian population.

The absence of African History is one of the major gaps that refers to consequences on the Brazilian population. Taking the environment as inferiority of Afrodescendants, it takes away the opportunity to build a positive identity about the origins. This absence makes room for prejudiced, uninformed or racist hypotheses, creating fertile ground for the production and dissemination of the wrong ideas of the black population. The absence of a memory induces the idea that it does not exist. That is not part of the knowledge to be transmitted.

Based on spontaneous conversations of shantytown youth hanging out on the streets of their neighborhoods and interviews from the comfortable living rooms of the middle class, Jennifer Roth-Gordon shows how racial ideas permeate the daily lives of Rio de Janeiro’s residents across race and class lines. Race and the Brazilian Body weaves together the experiences of these two groups to explore what the author calls Brazil’s “comfortable racial contradiction,” where embedded structural racism that privileges whiteness exists alongside a deeply held pride in the country’s history of racial mixture and lack of overt racial conflict. This linguistic and ethnographic account describes how cariocas (people who live in Rio de Janeiro) “read” the body for racial signs. The amount of whiteness or blackness a body displays is determined not only through observations of phenotypical features—including skin color, hair texture, and facial features—but also through careful attention paid to cultural and linguistic practices, including the use of nonstandard speech commonly described as gíria (slang). Vivid scenes from daily interactions illustrate how implicit social and racial imperatives encourage individuals to invest in and display whiteness (by demonstrating a “good appearance”), avoid blackness (a preference challenged by rappers and hip-hop fans), and “be cordial” (by not noticing racial differences). Roth-Gordon suggests that it is through this unspoken racial etiquette that Rio residents determine who belongs on the world famous beaches of Copacabana, Ipanema, and Leblon; who deserves to shop in privatized, carefully guarded, air conditioned shopping malls; and who merits the rights of citizenship.

This book provides an insight into the Afro-Brazilian experience of racism in Brazil from the 19th Century to the present day, exploring people of African Ancestry’s responses to racism in the context of a society where racism was present in practice, though rarely explicit in law. Race and Afro-Brazilian Agency in Brazil examines the variety of strategies, from conservative to radical, that people of African ancestry have used to combat racism throughout the diaspora in Brazil. In studying the legacy of color-blind racism in Brazil, in contrast to racially motivated policies extant in the US and South Africa during the twentieth century, the book uncovers various approaches practiced by Afro-Brazilians throughout the country since the abolition of slavery towards racism, unique to the Brazilian experience. Studying racism in Brazil from the latter part of the nineteenth century to the present day, the book examines areas such as art and culture, politics, and tradition. This book will be of interest to scholars and students of Brazilian history, diaspora studies, race/ethnicity, and Luso-Brazilian studies.

Rising temperatures and the rise of the far right. What disasters happen when they meet? In the first study of the far right’s role in the climate crisis, White Skin, Black Fuel presents an eye-opening sweep of a novel political constellation, revealing its deep historical roots. Fossil-fuelled technologies were born steeped in racism. No one loved them more passionately than the classical fascists. Now right-wing forces have risen to the surface, some professing to have the solution—closing borders to save the nation as the climate breaks down. Epic and riveting, White Skin, Black Fuel traces a future of political fronts that can only heat up.

This book sheds new light on the interconnections between identity, gender and geographical displacement. At its centre are Brazilian travesti migrants, assigned as male at birth but later seeking to convey the aesthetic attributes of women by repeatedly performing a minutely-studied type of femininity. Despite the fact that they have been migrating between Brazil and Europe for more than forty years, very little is know about them, especially in the English-speaking world. This work therefore fills a significant lacuna in our understandings of sexualities, bodies and trans issues, whilst rejecting hegemonic terms such as 'transsexual' and 'transgender' in favour of the specificity of the travesti. What it presents is an ethnographical study of their bodily and geographic-spatial migrations, analysing how they become travestis through the gendered modification of their bodies, their involvement in sex work, and the transnational migrations to Europe that many of them make. Examining their lives in both Brazil and Europe, it also analyses how their migrations influence the construction of their subjectivities. Drawing on extensive fieldwork in Brazil and Barcelona, this exciting book will appeal to all those interested in gender, sexuality and transgender issues.
