Festival of the Good Death Celebrated in Cachoeira, Brazil

The Afro-Brazilian Sisterhood of the Good Death is made up of female descendants of slaves, all age 50 and over, and honours both Catholic traditions and Afro-Brazilian Candomble religious rites. The sisterhood is believed to be the oldest organization for women of African descent in the Americas. The state of Bahia received at least 1.2 million slaves from Africa and remains the most African of Brazilian states, where blacks make up around 80 percent of the population.

Mark it down as a poor night for Brazilian democracy and tolerance. The penultimate televised debate before next weekend’s presidential election was overshadowed by the homophobic rant of one of the fringe candidates.

Levy Fidelix is a conservative and former journalist who has no hope of winning, with a support rate below 1%. But given almost equal airtime to the leading candidates on national television on Sunday, he let rip with a torrent of invective.

The presidential hopeful claimed homosexuals “need psychological care” and were better kept “well away from [the rest of] us”. He joked that Brazil’s population of 200 million would be reduced by half if homosexuality were encouraged because “the excretory system” does not function as a means of reproduction.

With less than a week until polling day, the televised debate should have been an opportunity for the leading candidates to provide details about their programmes of government and to highlight weaknesses in their rivals’ positions. Instead it was mostly a mix of bland statements and character attacks.

Luciana Genro from the Socialism and Liberty party, made impressive use of her time to highlight the flaws in rival programmes and to warn of the social dangers of homophobia. As in previous debates, the Green party’s Eduardo Jorge also won plaudits for his grasp of detail and support for marijuana liberalisation.

That left televangelist pastor Everaldo Pereira, who is running on an anti-abortion, anti-gay rights platform, came across as relatively moderate in comparison with Fidelix.

Welcome to Portuguese where:

amothyst:

A Á Ã Â are all different sounds

same with O Ó Õ Ô /  E É Ê

Ç replaces S sometimes

suffixes are formed with S instead of Z after diphthongs

C+H / N+H / L+H and R+R, are specific sounds

 A regular verb can have over 50 different forms 

expressing up to 6 different grammatical tenses 

and 3 moods

We also like infixing pronouns in future or conditional verb forms 

"Eles DÁR-NO-LO-ÃO"  =  They give-us-it-will  / will give it to us.

Bye.

A Brazilian man recently submitted a birth certificate that if verified would mean he is 126-years-old.
According to the document, Jose Aguinelo dos Santos, was born on July 7, 1888 to African slave parents.
Once verified he will be the oldest man on the planet.  


Bless!

A school in Brazil had all its students protesting after a transgender girl got reprimanded after changing into a female uniform. All the students, including the boys, wore a skirt to school on September 1st in a way to show support to the girl, who still can’t wear her female uniform but the school says that they’re “reviewing the code of conduct.”
