    my son spends 2 months a year in Brazil, so he's dated Brazilian girls, including some of mixed race. His impression, purely anecdotal from the girls he's known, is that colorism is even worse in Brazil than it is here. These girls were very emphatic that they were NOT black, and they said some things about black people that he found shocking enough to end the relationship.

    So I guess that what looks more enlightened on the surface might not be so enlightened after all.
