Drake: "Some people’s jobs are to come and find me and expose my life on any given night."
In the wake of Trayvon Martin’s death [and Renisha McBride and Jonathan Ferrell], we’ve seen a lot of discussion of the larger societal issues that play into how and when people are perceived as criminals. There were hoodies, there were marches, and there were frank talks from parent to child about how to minimize the danger of being a young person of color. On the other side, there were justifications of George Zimmerman’s actions: a smear campaign against Martin’s character, and plenty of writers explaining that statistically, blacks are simply more dangerous to be around.
That framing ignores the realities behind the numbers. Here are five myths about crime and people of color.

Ok, this is really starting to bother me. I know you don't write these confessions but I just think it's important to remember that Brazilian is not a race, Afro-Brazilian is not a race, it is a nationality. Afro-Brazilian is a term for Black(including mixed with mostly Black) Brazilians who's ancestors were brought to Brazil from Africa during the slave trade. if you want to say "Black features" say it, because there is no "Afro-Brazilian features" just had to put this out there.
