Interesting...

There are many things about the A.I.B. that are still unknown.

But a very well known fact was when the A.I.B. tried to hold a rally in downtown Sao Paulo on 7 October 1934 and they were put to flee, screaming like little girls, by a group of armed anti-fascists, and they abandoned their green t-shirts all over the streets of the downtown to avoid being recognized! LOL!

Confederates did migrate to Brazil because of farming opportunities and escaping the loss of the war. The town is called Americana near Sao Paolo. But they did not perpetuate their racism with them over there, Brazil was still a slave state at the time. And yet most did not own slaves over there. In fact, many of them actually mixed with the local population and many are Afrodescent today.

There was a story the other day of how some of them came to the US and where shocked at what the confederate flag meant in the USA, because over there it meant something very different. Not racist at all. Wikipedia has a decent article on them under Confederados.

Interestingly enough, most slave owners were mixed race and people of color during the last decades of slavery in the USA, and during the Civil War to the abolishment of slavery. Most whites never owned slaves. For many years it was people of color that owned slaves mostly.

Nope, it is actually YOUR post that is full of LIES. It's a well known FACT that by the time the U.S. Civil War began MOST slave owners were of mixed race ancestry. Try again.
