Latino Rebels Radio took the weekend off (again) but we will be back with new shows next week. In the meantime, our friends at the Latino Media Collective are guest hosting (again) with an episode from this past spring. The LMC spends the hour with João Costa Vargas to discuss how Brazil’s institutionalized anti-black racism is crucial to understanding the political rise of Jair Bolsonaro. Costa Vargas is the author of The Denial of Antiblackness: Multiracial Redemption and Black Suffering.
