GOMES, Tiago de Melo. Problems in heaven: the Brazilian racial democracy faces the African-American immigration (1921). Estud. afro-asiát. [online]. 2003, vol.25, n.2, pp. 307-331. ISSN 1678-4650.

Around 1921 Brazil heard the news that a group of African-Americans intended to emigrate to this country to found a colony in the Mato Grosso state. This fact provoked great reactions in the Chamber of Deputies, in the press and on the streets and also caused a big discussion about this emigration's convenience, having the idea - now totally spread - that in Brazil there was no racial prejudice. Accompanying the debate that followed, this article intends to point out the inner parts of the racial democracy idea during the post-war period, from whitening ideology ideas to equality versions, which aspired to a racial democracy.

Palabras clave : immigration; African-americans; racial democracy; racial prejudice.
