off-topic but not much: até o aparecimento da Taís Araújo, a Camila Pitanga era considerada uma atriz "negra". reminds me of the way the US sees Mariah Carey...

tá tudo do avesso!

Você fala português, certo? Vou comentar aqui porque não consegui fazer no Brazil Top Ten Lists. Eu sei que é brincadeira, mas se você proibisse o futebol, quem tivesse aprovado a lei iria ser caçado por todo o Brasil. As pessoas usam talheres quando vão comer em lugares públicos por educação. Quanto às roupas, os adultos geralmente se vestem de um jeito mais "arrumado". Adolescentes ou crianças, se não forem para festas ou se não forem crianças mimadas, se vestem como qualquer pessoa na idade deles: calça jeans e camiseta. Procure conhecer outros lugares do Brasil que não sejam São Paulo e Rio de Janeiro.

P.S: Eu concordo com você: Axé é uma merda.

This is part of the cultural and social aspects as to why Brazil won't ever be an economic super power. When you have to pay mothers to send their kids to school you have a problem, and keep in mind that the children don't learn anything in the public schools in Brazil.

"Bolsa Escola was a conditional cash transfer (CCT) program that offered mothers
in poor households a monthly stipend if their children ages 6 to 15 attended school on a
regular basis. The program was implemented across all of Brazil between the years 2001
and 2003, until it was folded into the broader Bolsa Familia program".
