“Black Genocide in Brazil”
Brazil is steeped in violence. According a report by the Brazilian Forum for Public Security there were 58,383 violent deaths in 2015. And young black people aged between 14 and 29 are the most likely the victims of that violence. A 2017 United Nations report concluded from its analysis of Brazil’s death toll that a young black man dies every 23minutes in Brazil, a black youth is twelve times more likely to be murdered that a white youth. Peadar King goes to São Paulo to meet with some of the people most affected by this violence in what many people now regard as a genocide.
