RACISM

Report of Doudou Dienè omits Multiracial Caboclos of the Amazon
27/02/2008
The final document submitted by the rapporteur of the United Nations (UN) on contemporary forms of racism, racial discrimination, xenophobia and related intolerance, the Senegalese Doudou Diéne, during his visit to Brazil between on October 17-26, 2005, didn't make any reference about to the Caboclo population of the country, Multiracials of Native and European origin. Caboclos are the most numerous ethnic-racial identity of the Amazon and prevailing in other regions of the country. While stating that "slavery was abolished in 1888. Racial miscegenation that followed between whites, blacks and Indians determined the ethnic and cultural map of Brazil", the report omits the populations of Multiracial identity (such as mulatto, caboclos and cafuzos), classifying all as african-descendants - miscegenation between Natives and Europeans begins in Brazil since its colonization, in the sixteenth century, before the arrive of Africans in the country. The report also refers the project of the Statute of Racial Equality, considered discriminatory and mestizophobic by the Multiracial movement, as a project supported "by most political actors." Doudou Dienè had a match with the then Minister Matilde Ribeiro, of the Special Secretariat of Policies for the Promotion of Racial Equality (SEPPIR), who resigned after reports of irregular use of corporate card. Leaders of the Multiracial movement of Brazil were perplexed with what was said with the Doudou Dienè's report, saying that this does not reflect the reality of ethnic-racial country, promotes interests of groups that want to impose on the Brazilian Multiracials the Black identity, goes against the Declaration of Durban and collaborates with the conflict between Multiracials and Blacks in Brazil.
