FIFA World Cup 2014: Brazil without Mestizos?


Panels of FIFA World Cup 2014 which adorn the fences of the construction site of the stadium Arena da Amazonia in City of Manaus (State of Amazonas), do not the illustrate Brazilian Mestizos, the most numerous ethnic segment of the country. Following the anti-Mestizo racial policy of the president Dilma Rousseff (PT), in the panels appear a indigenous, a white couple, a black and a Asian woman outfit with Chinese dress; the Mestizo people who form the majority of the population of the Amazon do not appear on the panels.

The Fédération Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) has campaigned against racism in football/soccer and visits the works for the Cup, but the racial policy of the Brazilian government against Mestizos seems not to have even drawn the attention of the inspectors of the organization.
