These images of fashion are fun to watch however this is not a typical Brazilian woman. They do
come in all shapes, sizes and colors and actually 43% of small to mid-sized businesses are owned
by women.

The woman in the video is very pretty but not typical. Most Brazilian women are a browner and about half would be considered Black if they were Americans. We like to think typical in Brazil is Giselle Bunchden, but reality typical us more like Tracee Ellis Ross or Sanaa Latham.

Well I'm Brazilian for European descent and I look Nordic... so for me she's typical... and Half of Brazilians is not considered Black in US... but Black and Mestizo/Castizo like Mexicans.

Also America is not Marissa Miller too, more like Tyra Banks mixed with German-American and some Mexicans.

Brazilians looks more or less this:

US still follows the "one drop rule", in that if you have even the absolute tiniest trace of black in your look, even if you're 99% white and 1% black, you are considered black in this country.

Who is doing this ranking by the drop? We know how it started, but, only a few keep it going to some degree. I don't hear people saying, such things as "The Rock is Black man nor do I hear this about Vin Diesel both of whom have a of mostly African blood I don't hear this about many people, no one really cares all that much, though many will state not be to black because of having one drop of blood of anything other that African origins, which cracks me the heck up for sure with; that measurement no one is black who I know.

I think these days it is whatever you choose to label yourself for the most part. But as far as I'm concerned if you are 100% of Euro blood type and want to identify as black, who am I to tell you not to, at least unofficially baring government legalities that is.

Well I'm from all european descent mostly of German (with Poles and Danes contribution) and North Italian (with small Portuguese).


But okay... I undestand... also I'm not White American in U.S (even if I look Nordo) and yes Latino or whatever.

So what is the point of this thread? At any rate, I have a lot of female Brazilian friends and not one look like the girl in the video. They all look very Latina.
