Is there a lot of diversity? Are people in Brazil accepting of differences?
When we asked people about diversity in Brazil and whether locals are accepting of differences, they said...
"Brazil has a long history of promoting multiculturalism and racial diversity. Brazil is known for celebrating its cultural plurality, especially with regards to its African and indigenous heritages. Despite this celebration of diversity, Brazil still suffers from deep disparities in access to rights and resources, including within the education system. However, many cities and organisations are actively participating in initiatives that promote a more open and tolerant society. The LGBTQ+ community has also seen advancements in rights and acceptance within cities such as Salvador and Rio de Janeiro. In general, Brazil is becoming increasingly accepting of differences, but much work still needs to be done to create a fully equitable and inclusive society," wrote a member who made the move to Brazil.
"Rich and poor live side by side. Diversity is part of every day life. Brazilians are very tolerant especially in religion, race and culture.The main problem of Rio is the violence. One has to take, just like the Brazilians do, steps to protect one self," explained one expat living in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
