Affirmative action in Brazil: Slavery's legacy | The Economist - II

So growing up poor or at a social disadvantage automatically makes you less intelligent and capable? Brazil's efforts are about giving the MAJORITY of Brazilians access to opportunities they've been denied just because of the color of their skin.

Of course it does not make you less able, who said this? What I said, clearly, is the poorest who, incidentally, is not only black but also white in Brazil and especially mixed desperately needs a quality basic education. Contrary to what has been done, cover the Sun with a sieve ... Give admissions to students, regardless of their color or race, who come from education systems without good educational background will not make them better, but elude them. Do you want to help them? Then propose a better education, with better facilities, salaries for teachers and safety (against drug dealers) on socially vulnerable areas. What makes our hypocritical government? I tell you this is difficult, you have to spend a lot and change our Paleolithic Criminal Code. But we have no other way to do better. The problem in Brazil, and if you are Brazilian like me will understand ... In this country, the impunity that benefits criminals or "white collar" is absurd. Now tell me, if you have to do heart surgery, you would opt for a white doctor, who was poor and had low grades in elementary and high school or by another physician, casually black, who studied without benefit quotas, with excellent graduation? You'd be racist if you opted for black doctor? Of course not! So why choose a doctor with better curriculum which, incidentally, is white would be racism?
