When I first starting researching the history of brothers and sisters in Brazil at the end of the 20th century and beginning of the 21st, I honestly thought titles of books by the great Abdias do Nascimento such as Brazil: Mixture or Massacre or The Genocide of the black Brazilian were exaggerations.

Bird poop… cocaine… oooooook

There is a lot of disturbing things about this story, but the one that really hits home is once Shai Werts knew the cops were behind him, he called 911 to tell them he was going to pull over but wanted to get to a more well-lit area.
