Dominant Social Theme: The real problem with Brazil is its history of racism.
Free-Market Analysis: In this article, we will attempt to show the difference between an elite meme and a realistic, grounded, "human" analysis of the formal (accepted) profile of Brazil.
There is the reality of Brazil (which is merely a construct on a map) and the reality of the people who live in the construct called Brazil. The people who live in the construct called Brazil are a variable lot with their own cultures and tribal identities.
But Brazil (the "country") is a deeply dysfunctional, authoritarian construct. It has been made so on purpose by the Anglosphere that has busily configured Latin America so that each geographic construct (country) is administered mostly by a few light-skinned familial enterprises of European descent.
