In reality, none of them ever actually followed through on this.Then in 2006 the floodgates on the “Brazilian Experience” were opened when Spelman College professor Jelani Cobb wrote a piece in the leading African-American women’s magazine Essence entitled “Blame It On Rio”, detailing the journeys of African-American men on their sexual and/or amorous adventures in Brazil (interview here).

On the flip side, the “exposure” of black American men’s visits to Brazil and mingling with local women provoked outrage, disgust and all sorts of vile comments from black American women on forum sites or pages that posted articles about black American men in Brazil.

In literally thousands of online comments, Brazilian women were continuously defined as “bitches”, “hoes (whores)”, “prostitutes”, “sluts”, “gold diggers” or women looking for easy access to living in the US.

A message to African-Americans on the stereotype of Brazilian women by Mark Wells As an African-American male who has visited Brazil a number of times over a period of 13 years, and becoming familiar with the Afro-Brazilian struggle, I believe I stand in a unique position of being able to critique and make comparative analysis between the two communities.

As this incredible blog has exhaustively shown, the experiences of African-Americans and Afro-Brazilians have many similarities but also unique histories that present complex differences.

Many comments of these travelers voiced the opinion that black American women were either too independent, too verbally aggressive, too unappreciative (of black men), too fat or, if they were very attractive, out of the reach of most black men of average income or social status.

Having read studies by scholars such as Adriana Piscitelli on sexual tourism of European men in Brazil, I was taken by the similarity of the comments made by European men as well as African-American men in regards to Brazilian women.After a mutual friend introduced us and we exchanged “wad’dups”, I asked this brotha what he liked about Brazil. “A brotha can go to Brazil and find a sista and not have to deal with that nappy-ass hair! Of all of the things he could have said about Brazil, the first comment he makes exposes one of the deepest contradictions about black American identity: Yes, we are “black and proud” but don’t be “too black” and have hair that’s “too nappy” or you will get roasted!On the hair topic, I always thought it was ironic how one of the greatest symbols of black pride in the US, in fact, the creator of the anthem “I’m Black and I’m Proud”, James Brown, wore his hair straightened for the vast majority of his career. Year after year I would always have countless brothas tell me that they were going to get a passport and VISA and go to Brazil with me on my next trip.Then there were the flat out crude comments like, “Dem Brazilian bitches fine den a muh-fucka! In all honesty, the vast majority of comments/questions I’ve heard over the years would fit into some type of the latter category.I remember vividly in 2002 when I met the first black American man I personally knew who had visited Brazil.Over the years there has been a small, but growing interest in the African-American community about the experiences of our “cousins” in Brazil.
