Racial and National Intermarriage in a Brazilian City

Abstract

Brazil is one of the largest, if not the largest, melting-pot of the races. Yet few scientifcally dependable studies have been made of the process of mixture as it takes place in that country. Three samples drawn from as many classes in one of the several population sections of Brazil show definite differentiation by color (1) among the Brazilians of Brazilian descent and (2) in the marriage of the foreign-born and their Brazilian-born children. The evidence indicates that is this section racial antagonism and discrimination exist and that interracial mixture is limited very largely to the lower classes and to illicit relationship.
