Black Lives Matter: Brazilian Police Kill Citizens 6 Times More Than U.S.

Last Monday, over 5,000 Brazilians took to the streets of Salvador da Bahia to protest the deaths of unarmed Black people by police officers. Salvador da Bahi, the center of Afro-Brazilian culture, is feeling many of the pains endured by Blacks in America as Brazilian police have killed an average of six people per day between 2009 and 2013. Much like the U.S., these victims are disproportionately Black. Over the past five years, Brazilian police have killed close to as many citizens as U.S. police have in the past 30 years. Last week’s protest is part of a larger movement in Brazil, “Reaja ou SeráMorto,” which translates to “React or Die,” and has many of the same concerns as America’s Black Lives Matter movement.
