Back in 1965, Ebony magazine published two articles on Brazil. One article dealt with the proposed Brazilian solution to racism, which was to encourage people to intermarry.

The other article, September 1965, discussed Brazilian cuisine, which is a mixture of African, European, and Native cultures.

Travelers to Brazil should take note of the cultural and racial fluidity of the nation because as immigration increases in most areas of the Western world, we will need to find ways to integrate diverse people into our nations.  Brazil provides a picture of how one nation attempted to solve the problem of racial and cultural  heterogeneity.
