Michael Jackson in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil – They Don’t Care About Us

It has been a long time since Michael Jackson filmed this video in Rio de Janeiro. His song explored the injustices of the world. Some people did not approve of the strong lyrics. As always, the King was defiant.


“The idea that these lyrics could be deemed objectionable is extremely hurtful to me, and misleading. The song in fact is about the pain of prejudice and hate and is a way to draw attention to social and political problems. I am the voice of the accused and the attacked. I am the voice of everyone. I am the skinhead, I am the Jew, I am the black man, I am the white man. I am not the one who was attacking. It is about the injustices to young people and how the system can wrongfully accuse them. I am angry and outraged that I could be so misinterpreted.”
Michael Jackson

Anthony Bourdain in Portugal, Brazil’s once powerful colonizer

Last night, Anthony Bourdain of the Travel Channel series No Reservations visited Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, in the third installment of this season.  For the uninitiated, No Reservations is a tour of various destinations across the world in which Bourdain eats and hangs out with locals.  Bourdain is a Type-A personality who at times has a foul mouth, resulting in a few censor bleeps here and there in each episode.

While sitting with a Portuguese author and a few others, Bourdain began a discussion of politics and fado music.  Portuguese Fado is comprised bittersweet songs, longing for past, better times.   Portugal was once the most powerful colonizing power.  The Portuguese, a sea-faring people sharing the Iberian Peninsula with Spain, began excursions into Africa and the Far East in the 15th Century, much earlier than other kingdoms.   In 1500, Cabral, apparently trying to locate a route to India around West Africa employing the wind patterns off the coast, loses his direction and winds up in what became known as Brazil.  Many, including myself, believe Cabral and the Portuguese knew there was something due west of Africa, as African tradition, which the always cosmopolitan Portuguese were well aware, had often spoke of these lands (which became known as the Americas).  Moreover, six years prior (1494) to Cabral’s voyage the Portuguese negotiated with the Spanish and the Catholic Church for control over any land to the east of the lands previously “discovered” by the Spanish (Columbus 1492, etc.).  This great mass of land is Brazil.  Too much ‘luck’ for it to be a coincidence!

Anyway, being that the Portuguese began colonization so early their empire, of course, crumbled before others.  Perhaps that is why the Portuguese always appear sad.  Perhaps that explains why the former colonies of Portugal lack a certain respect for their former masters.  For example, you rarely hear Brazilians speak of wanting to visit Portugal. You do hear Spanish-speaking inhabitants of Latin America speak highly of Spain, in contrast. Latin Americans may not perceive of their treatment under the empire as fair, but they do admire the strength, ingenuity, and culture of their colonizers.  The same cannot be said of Portugal’s relationship with Brazil.  In fact, Brazilians quite often poke fun at the seemingly hapless Portuguese.

Brazil’s rising star

Brazil continues to impress economists, being the last country to enter the recession and the first to leave it. Goldman Sachs stated the 21st century will belong to Brazil! Here is a 60 minutes report considering the effect of this new success on Brazilian society.

One thing the video does not consider is the problems nations face once they become world leaders. The U.S. has witnessed a drain of its human and economic resources since World War II as other nations increasingly depended on it for aid and protection. Likewise, Brazil will probably not be able to remain a neutral nation once it achieves the status of world superpower. I guess it is still true, MORE MONEY, MORE PROBLEMS!

Let the party begin. Imperatriz samba school has chosen its 2012 song.

We will be posting a history of samba and carmival/carnival soon.

But for now, I want to note that the schools are preparing for the 2012 Carnival in Rio (live links will be provided here on this website so keep tuned).

Imperatriz School’s song can be found below:

http://www.imperatrizleopoldinense.com.br/carnaval/samba.html

Usually, samba songs for Carnival tell a story of the history of Brazil, its people, or others in Latin America.

Also, here is a recent video of Imperatriz as they practiced for the 2012 events:
