Ama's America is Brazil, not the United States. Racism in Brazil and elsewhere in the African diaspora is discussed in texts on other pages.  To build a comprehensive web page on racism in the U.S. and world-wide, would be a major task and would require a breadth of knowledge and experience which I lack. Here are just a few thought-provoking  articles. I pose the question: what bearing, if any, does Ama's story have on contemporary racism in the U.S and elsewhere?
