    Nice video, however this video drastically underestimates how dangerous some of these neighborhoods are. They’re painting favelas like some artsy hipster neighborhood in New York City. Yes they’re beautiful and artistic, but these criminals in these neighborhoods are so dangerous and so powerful that the police can’t even enter or take control. Brazilian police are underpaid and understaffed leaving them to be outmanned and outgunned by powerful drug organizations such as the Red Command. Very misleading video.

    The music of the favelas made good types of music back in the 1980’s a lot of the old school freestyle and other of the electro type of music played with keyboards and drum machines with the synthesizers sound of dance music. The music is big in New York and into Miami of the Latin capitals.

    Já vou falar que não, eu não estou do lado de bandidos e sou completamente contra as gangues. Apesar disso, e deixando de lado o preconceito, tem muitas favelas em que, para o morador, os traficantes fazem mt mais do que o Estado. Eles dão segurança (tem varios lugares com código moral, eles não podem atacar os próprios moradores), tem sua forma de vigilância, e muitas vezes investem em educação e lazer na comunidade. Não é difícil perceber porque mtas pessoas confiam neles e não no Estado, que é truculento e violento sim e que nunca fez nada por essa população.
    Não que nada disso justifique o tráfico e os outros crimes e violência cometidos pelos bandidos, mas é só mais um exemplo que mostra que a realidade não é tão simples, tão preto no branco como mta gnt acha.

    if the traffickers and Brazilian police agreed in that direction, things would start to change, policemen who invade the favelas and die for such a low salary, all the lives in Brazil are devalued, in a war, a chaos, promoted by the Mafioso government itself , architects of the war between the Brazilian people, Brazilian policemen are treated like whores by them, they are paid so little to turn their bodies over to the government, for the chaos they devised.

I was always scared to go outside and that's because all the previous presidents failed everyone, they didn't care about anything just themselves.

    Excellent documentary, just a little thing favelas didn't started that far with the end of slavery 130 ago, the favela da Rocinha population began with the constructions workers of Zona Sul in 1950/1960 and grew pretty quick.. the only good thing of people living in Favelas it's they don't pay for anything, sometimes water, electricity even least not to the goverment..

    I lived in Brazil 4 years ago and favelas are not much of how this video described them,favelas are places where it’s full of murder,rape,kidnap, drugs,and worst if someone who’s going to Rio and is expecting this from a favela and goes there their probably in risk.

      +mrpalaces Yes but in USA's case it was only in the southeastern states, 10% of the country, it was illegal on most of the country, until 1865 it was abolished completely then Brazil until 1888, but neither of these countries had colonies in Africa or went to Africa to enslave the African blacks and USA outlawed slave trade before UK since 1790s

    You can see this pattern all over Latin America. Here in Colombia, we call those slums "comunas", I think in Argentina those are called "villas". Anyway, the point is that this is a Latinamerican problem and those places tend to be real dangerous.
