intense experience this afternoon. six cops pointing guns at me while sunbathing in a park, they were 'looking for drugs'. this is a reality in this brasil for many people and its worse if your skin is darker than mine. sharing on behalf of those who didn't make it to tell their story. important to recognize our privileges.


for any one with the stomach to read, i translated my recent experience with the police into english

@rosano Especially scary that they point all those guns at your face, and not somewhere safer on the body. Hope you were able to relax since then!

@raucao yes i keep re-emphasizing where it's directed, says a lot about their approach. relaxing is a little harder but possible with practice…
