Do you think Brazilian Carnival is a popular celebration?
Money has color.
In the middle of the street you can see white people, who have money to buy a t-shirt of the concert and dance and have fun with all kind of security. On the borders, you can see black people, who don’t have money to pay, but they want to celebrate carnival anyway. For them, no security. For them, no respect. For them, steals, rapes and fights.
So, let’s celebrate carnival in Brazil. Let’s celebrate equality for equals.
P.S.: This picture was taken in Salvador. The blackest city of world outside Africa.

This is a scrapbook made of pixels, serving mostly as a repository for all the interesting and inspiring things I find online. Art, funky music, literature, counterculture, ecology, postcolonialism, and anarchism are a few of the things that move me.

"Difference is happy", a quote from Deleuze's book on Nietzsche, sums up the ethic we live by.
