Note from BW of Brazil: This blog often tackles tough issues that people have difficulty discussing: racism, the genocidal murders of black youth, the analysis of interracial relationships and the Eurocentric Brazilian media, among others. But sometimes it’s nice just to admire great photos of some of Brazil’s beautiful women without having to get into controversial topics such as cultural appropriation that may accompany the topic of the post, which is something we have featured here on the blog in a number of previous posts: the growing popularity of turbans among black women in Brazil.
