Do the Stereotypes match?“People think Brazilians just think about CARNIVAL, SAMBA & FOOTBALL. They think our WOMEN are all DARK-SKINNED, BEAUTIFUL, SEXY, EASY to get in bed, with BIG BUTTS and walk around NAKED in public. Brazilians eat FRUIT DIRECTLY FROM THE TREES, play SOCCER all day long on dirty fields while listening to SAMBA, drinking CAIPIRINHAS and playing with their PET MONKEYS. All their politicians are CORRUPT, their streets are all DANGEROUS, their idols are PELÉ & RONALDINHO, and they speak SPANISH as their native tongue. And of course, BUENOS AIRES is the capital of Brazil.”
