        Affirmative Action and the USA | Wide Angle

        Brazil has labeled itself a "racial democracy," believing that it has escaped the racism that has plagued the United States. The introduction of U.S.-style affirmative action has forced the country to abandon this approach, and start addressing deep-seated racial issues that have long been denied or ignored. It has also created a whole new set of problems. In this video segment from the Wide Angle film "Brazil in Black and White," meet Humberto Adami, a civil rights attorney who has called in the help of lawyers from America’s NAACP in his effort to secure equal rights for Afro-Brazilians.
