Brazil has a rich history of popular resistance against racism and police brutality. Activists say the high rates of Afro-Brazilians killed by police amount to a “Black genocide.” So when global outrage about the George Floyd killing reached the country last May, thousands mobilized even as government officials denied systemic racism exists. VICE News explores the roots of anti-Blackness in Brazil and how that manifests in policing, politics and religion.
