    The most problem is THE GOVERMENT. If you think how the drougs or guns get in inside of Brazil, you are gonna see that there are huge influency of goverment. Cops are also corrupt. The first step to try end up with the crime is investigate the politicians and arrest these FILHOS DA PUTAS

    It's been about a year since I first saw this video, and after I watched it then, I decided to watch the movie "City of God" (Cidade de Deus). I've watched it a couple of times since then, and I'd say that it is one of my favorite movies, and I recommend everyone to watch it.

    I don’t live IN a favela but since I live in Rio, of course there are many favelas surrounding me. And that means a lot of poverty. Just yesterday there was an assault in front of my building and a guy got shot. I mean, I walk around afraid of dying every day. I’ve been assaulted before and it’s traumatizing. Living in Rio isn’t easy at all. There’s a crack land full of homeless people just beside my university (Uerj) and it’s weird no one does anything about it. They just put police officers around sporadically. It’s really sad to see such a beautiful and full of potential city being neglected by the political authorities. Unfortunately, in my opinion, this happens because Brazilians are still massively uneducated.

    There are so many hip hop music cultures in the favelas in Rocinha with a lot of the 1980’s old school freestyle music based from New York City and Miami of the Latin capitals of the United States. I loved the sound of the 1980’s keyboards synths and all of the electro sounds of the instruments with the turntables. I am stuck in the 1980’s of The a lot of the synthpop stuff. Be careful of visiting the favelas in Rio de Janeiro and stay with a lot of people of the tour groups in Rocinha. Brazil has a lot of the electronic dance clubs.

    When they imported europeans to lighten the coffee (café com leite) after independance (1822) the main purpose was to divide by class and race, so this is the result. Division and marginalization. The question is How to normalize this society?
