Although I may or may not agree that Brazil is generally a mixed country, I live close to Lapa and hardly would say it is a representative of all of Brazil. Lapa, in general, is a cheaper option. And it is Samba which always attracts a mixed crowd. Go to a night club in the south zone or even Tijuca and see how many people are not white. Usually very very few. Why is that? Just saying.

Let's talk seriously. Just a tip for you: all your "white" customers have some black and indigenous DNA, you like it or not. They like it or not. If they think they are "pure white", just ask them about who their 8 great-grandfathers are. They will probably know who 4 or 5 are, and ignore the social and racial origin of the other 4 or 3...

Just to clarify your mind, take a look at some of Brazil's 81 senators:

Senator Edison Lob„o Filho:

Senator Paulo Paim:

Senator Vicentinho Alves:

Senator Geovani Borges:

This is incredible! All those nordic "pure white" senators with no racial mixing! Brazil is a viking country!
Umm, what's the point of this post? I think you are obsessed with race. You do not know who has what "DNA" ( must be having the same DNA, or they weren't humans). Nor does it matter because if it did, 80% of African Americans wouldn't be black. You have to draw the line somewhere. So let it go.
