Me So Holy: Evangelicals Love You Long Time

A touching story of modern Christian charity among those who need it most:

Belo Horizonte (Brazil) (AFP) – Brazilian pimps and a Christian evangelical group played a football match Saturday in World Cup host city Belo Horizonte, taking over a central street to raise awareness about sex worker managers’ rights.

Gathering just after Colombia played Greece in the southeastern city, the men set up an impromptu pitch using traffic cones for goalposts and played to the enthusiastic cheers of onlookers.

The pimps, calling themselves the Bootycall and Football Club — though in fact they played in the green and yellow uniforms of Brazil — teamed up with the visiting evangelicals from the United States to take on a local university team in a match with a message.

“Rights must be the same for everyone. We’re no different from anyone else just because we run dem hoes,” player Patrick Bonges told AFP.

“We are finally breaking that prejudice and stigma.”

His American teammate Jack Jenny said the game was about showing that “you just love people, you don’t judge, you don’t change people, you just love them.”

Pimps in Brazil have long complained of discrimination and called for the government to treat their profession like any other, including with programs to help older sex worker managers.

The match was organized by the Hand of the Pimp Association of Minas Gerais, the state where Belo Horizonte is located.

The association has also helped some of the city’s ballers prepare for the World Cup by offering free currency exchange, because a pimp has got to get his money in local denominations.

Hey Baby! You got girlfriend Brazil? Me so holy.

  1. See what you did there.

    This is a really sick story, the kind of thing that is responsible for much of my present misanthropy. These fools have forgotten the words of the prophet Isaiah:

    Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!

  2. Note: I’m still travelling and moving stuff so sorry if this comment sounds rushed.

    Brazilian Evangelicalism (both the impulsive native Brazilian and foreign U.S. American imported) has devious tactics. It supports modern, unbiblical Bible translations and it’s kind of hilarious that feminism has been trying to gain ground (with limited success so far) in Brazil.

    Socialism/Welfare transfers don’t work in Brazil because it’s a caste society with different ethnic and SES groups, so most people tend to be more local/regional and look out for their own. In addition, despite the 66% Brazilian illegitimacy rates, most practice cohabitation and live with their biological fathers/mothers, as well as the extended family such as uncles, aunts, cousins and others.

    Instead, the major leftist groups will try to use the Police state to their advantage since police go after the worst in North-Eastern Brazil (both kill and imprison criminals at high rates), and foreign leftist NGOs wanting to transport the scum to “better places” in Brazil thanks to some housing policy (which ruins the good places).

    The legalization of abortion in Brazil was because of “women right’s” in law, but the truth on the ground is that it will be mostly used for eugenic reasons (poverty, skin color, caste, economics), or the occasional relationship reasons such as infidelity/adultery.

  3. Brazil generally speaks Portuguese with little holdover from distinctive linguistic tribal languages and it’s ethnic demographics vary by region. Brazil is mostly Roman Catholic with 65% of the population (22% Protestant, 8% irreligious/non-religious).

    As a whole Brazil is 45% white Caucasian/Branco (white immigrants from Portugal, Italy, Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Syria, Lebanon), 45% mixed-raced/Pardo (children from male colonial conquistadores and their Amerindian/Black female slaves), 2% Asian (Japanese and Taiwanese Chinese immigrants) and 7.5% Black African (Negro) and 0.5% Amerindian.

    Most Brazilian differentiates themselves through skin color, appearance and culture on a census, and while genetics isn’t typically referred, Brazilian genetics shows the average one to be predominantly white Caucasoid (as in >70% white).

    In genetics, the average Brazilian white ranges between 85 and 100% white (lots of white immigrants), whereas the average mixed-raced Pardo is about 60-80% white (a castizo, or a quadroon, thanks to excessive miscegenation). The only commonality in miscegenation is that the Y-Chromosome in the Brazilian population is generally white Caucasoid male (as in 90-95% white male on the Y-Chromosome line).

    In general, Brazil is a 2nd world country with a working class to lower-middle class atmosphere, and it’s not the 3rd world as some would imagine it. Remember that there is a huge difference between the North and the North-East.

    While the North possesses 45% of the geography, it only has 16 million habitants and the lowest population density. The non-white side is more Amerindian in the North (65% pardo, 25% branco). It’s a humid and hot climate (24 to 26 Celsius on average during the year).

    The North-East has 49 million inhabitants, and 18% of the national territory, and the non-white side there is more African (62% pardo, 30% branco). It’s a tropical climate (20 to 28 Celsius on average during the year).

    The Center-West region has 14 million habitants and 19% of the national territory (50% branco, 45% pardo). It’s a tropical climate with heat and heavy rain (above 18 Celsius in the winter, above 25 Celsius in the summer).

    The Southeast has 77 million inhabitants and 10% of the national territory (60% white and 30% pardo). It shows both tropical and subtropical climate patterns. The South is 7% of the national territory, has 26 million inhabitants (80% white, 16% pardo) and shows subtropical climate.

    While the Northeast has the third highest GDP after the South and the Southeast, trust me that the North and the Center-West are much better places to live and have higher living standards than the Northeast has. Brazilian prostitution is heavier in the North and the Northeast by the way.

    By living standards and Human Development Index (HDI):

    Northeast – HDI 0.653 or Medium
    North – HDI 0.683 or Medium
    Center-West – HDI 0.753 or High
    Southeast – HDI 0.753 or High
    South – HDI 0.756 or High

    The poor favela people you see in major Southeastern cities such as Rio de Janeiro or São Paulo were all originally from the Northeast. They moved from the Northeast to the Southeast and started ruining the place.

  4. Since Brazilian population is estimated to be 200 million, 16 million (North) is just about 8% of the country, so the infamous notoriety should be with the North-East in reality. Just my 2 cents.

  5. Just 6% of Brazilians (around 12 million out of 200 million) reside in favelas. The average Brazilian pardo is in reality a quadroon/octoroon genetically (like >75% white Caucasian) but often foreigners don’t realize this factor because black genetics are the hardest to “whiten up” in comparison to the Asian (presently stable) or even the Amerindian (degenerated Asian) and often the ancestry needs to dip into the single digits (like between 0% to 10%) before one starts “passing”. Still, Brazilian prostitution (in the North and the Northeast) does accelerate the “whitening process” to some level due to the amount of white male genes (both from native Brazilians with white immigrant descent, as well as foreign white tourists) being introduced into the illegitimate children. There’s also some introduction of pale Asian male genes, but it’s not as generalized and it’s much less.

  6. @Alcest

    Here’s hoping that “Brazillian Demographics” is a category in a pub quiz game.

    🙂

  7. I forgot to add that black ancestry in Brazil typically came from Angola (Southwest Africa, very near Namibia and South Africa) and Mozambique (East Africa), so it’s more Southern and Eastern black, it’s rarely West African. Hope I helped.

  8. “Do not judge” has turned into do not even point out what I am doing is a sin or even dare to call it a sin.

    Many people in today’s world hide under the cover of “Do not judge” and “Cast the first stone” but forget that Jesus also said “Go and leave your life of sin”.

  9. Like I mentioned beforehand, the North region (Amazon land) has the lowest population density for such a large territorial size. Since it’s only 16 million, and about half of them are women, 8 million is a small number and heavy foreign sex tourism does affect that area.

    Since the number of Brazilian births have decreased to about 2-3, then the native Brazilian population in the North region will decrease to about 10-12 million, and 5-6 million women up for grabs is even a smaller population density. So yep, foreign sex tourism is definitely affecting that place.

    In addition, the Center-West Region has 14 million people, and while sex tourism doesn’t affect it as much as the North and the Northeast, 7 million women is another small number. When it decreases to 12-10 million, 5-6 million women is easier to affect.

    I’m not saying that all Brazilian women are prostitutes. I’m just stating that smaller populations (particularly North and possibly the Center-West Region) are going to start feeling the effects of prostitution in the next decades. Guaranteed.

  10. Funny that almost no one talks about the low population density in the North when talking about prostitution and foreigners. The two are somewhat connected. Anything between 5-8 million women isn’t that much and just amounts to 2.5% to 4% of the female population.

    Another lowly populated area, the Center-West region, has about 5-7 million women and that’s between 2.5% to 3.5% of the female population. In total female population, both the North and the Center-West have 10 million to 15 million women.

    Now combine the North and the Center-West and it becomes 5% to 7.5% of the total female Brazilian population. Not saying that they’re all prostitutes, just that the small population does make it easier for prostitution to affect them.

  11. Brazil receives about 7 million international tourists per year (and of course not all of them are sex tourists), but when one start crunching out the numbers, I start feeling like my imagination wasn’t running wild and that it was accurate when examining the low population densities of the North and the Center West for Brazilian women.

  12. Mixed-raced pardo Brazilian women in the North and Center-West tend to have sexual relations with both native mixed-raced Brazilians in addition to foreigners, so they’re not ignoring either and accepting both. That might explain the high illegitimacy/cohabitation rates (which is around 66%).

  13. My prediction for the next century (in about 2100), and while that’s too far-fetched, is that the Brazilian North and Center-West will have a stable number of quadroons (3/4 white+1/4 black) and octoroons (7/8 white+1/8 black) with a slightly higher number of quintroons (15/16 white+1/16 black). The factors which will influence this idea:

    – Low population densities in both the North and the Center-West. In the North, it’s 5-7 million women and in the Center-West it’s 5-8 million women. Easier to overwhelm small populations.

    – Birth rates are at replacement level, which is 2-3 children and it’s stabilized around there.

    – Rampant Brazilian female prostitution. It’s a facet of Brazilian female life there in those two regions.

    – The threat of poverty and criminality aiding prostitution, sex tourism and sex trafficking.

    – A lot of illegitimacy and cohabitation.

    So, possibly at the end of the century, the North-East will be the worst region and acquire even bigger notoriety as the other two lowly populated regions (North and Center-West) have been “pacified”.

  14. There’s more public media hysteria about prostitution in Northeastern Brazil, but it’s much less affected compare to both the North and the Center-West, where it’s a big impact due to low population densities in both regions (and the higher mixed-raced pardo populations).

  15. @Alcest

    1. Are you Brazilian? Why do you know so much about them?

    2. What do you think will happen to the Macaroons in the face of the Quadroon, Octoroon, and Quintroon onslaught?

  16. I’m in my 20s. I was born in Lisbon, Portugal despite being an outlier in terms of how I was born as a mixed-raced girl (extremely few Brazilians have a black father and a white mother, it’s quite abnormal and I’m sure <1% of the population).

    But yeah, watch out for the prostitution wave in North and Center-West. Those two regions have perhaps the lowest population densities and a higher rates of mixed-raced pardos. I think they will be pacified by the end of the century because their small populations are easier to be overwhelm (10-15 million women combined between two diverse regions is small for a country of 200 million people). I think the Northeast is a lost cause though…

  17. Another note: most Brazilians place a huge premium on appearance/looks rather than genetics. I talk a lot about genetics, but most Brazilians talk about skin color, nose shape, eye shape, hair texture, body shape and whatnot.

    But the hilarious thing is that for a person to look white during miscegenation, thanks to the African component, the Caucasian genes must be stronger. That’s why looks are so important.

    I have compared pictures of Brazilians to their autosomal results on various Human Biodiversity websites. The thing is that for a Brazilian person to look “white”, that person has to cross the 90% white line and be at least consistently 95% white because Sub-Saharan African mixture is that stubborn.

    Remember that the Y-Chromosome is 90-95% white on the male component. In other words, lots of white dudes spreading their genes throughout the Brazilian population increased the autosomal results as well.

  18. But yes, watch out for prostitution in the North and Center-West. Low population densities, less urbanized, different climate patterns and lots of mixed-raced women there…

  19. I’ll concentrate more on phenotype for now since that is Brazilians the most on, and correlate that to 3 common Brazilian looks with three famous names. Three typical Brazilian looks are 70% Caucasian vs. 90% Caucasian vs. 100% Caucasian (and the input is typically white male).

    #1 – Definite Pardo (Mixed-raced) that is 70% white Caucasian is actress Ildi Silva due to confirmed autosomal DNA test.

    #2 – Possible Pardo (Mixed-raced) that is 90% Caucasian is model Adriana Lima despite having no DNA test.

    #3 – 100% Caucasian would be model Gisele Bundchen, a child of immigrants.

  20. Opps, I have inundated the thread with my statistics. Sorry for that. ):
    I’ll stop for now. 🙂

  21. From the Patheos blog Slacktivist:

    “………..so they were joined, as teammates, by a group of Americans — evangelical Christians who were visiting Brazil on a mission trip.”

    “I would very much like to visit their church. They seem to know something about Jesus there.”

  22. Another comment on why the North-East is a lost cause: it’s a very high population density. There’s just too many people there for any impact to be felt.

    If the North-East region wants to be saved, then its population should drop from 49 million to about 25-30 million (halve itself) through declining birth rates (like 1-2 children), since it’s easier to influence about 15 million women and sell itself to Canada, USA, Europe and Asia.

    Like I mentioned beforehand, the constant media hysteria about prostitution in North-Eastern Brazil is a huge turn-off. While the availability of prostitution is an epidemic in Brazil, it doesn’t tend to happen near violent favelas (the 6% Brazilian underclass) and it’s more concentrated around the pardo (mixed-raced) working class to the lower middle class (yep, prostitution in Brazil is generally a middle-class practice).

    Higher HDI regions like the North and the Center-West are ten times more affected by prostitution thanks to their low density populations (low numbers of people), higher percentage of mixed-raced pardos, higher rates of people belong to the working class/middle class, higher rates of illegitimacy (cohabitation) and replacement level fertilities (2 to 4 children), yet you don’t see so much hysteria about them.

  23. Prostitution in Brazil was legalized in 2000, it’s generally a working class to middle-class practice (involving a lot of mixed-raced pardo women), it affects less urbanized (more rural) and low density populations the most, despite the fact that it has a universal presence in all Brazilian regions.

    In addition, it also involves both native Brazilian clients (both mixed-raced and white Brazilian men), as well as white foreigners throughout Europe (Portugal, Italy, France, Germany, UK, Ukraine, Russia, etc.) and to a lesser extent Asian men (mostly Japan, sometimes China and other countries).

    Birth rates for Brazilian prostitutes tends to be around replacement level (usually 2-3, sometimes 4), involving a lot of illegitimacy and cohabitation in Brazil.

  24. @CaneCaldo – I’m going to borrow your link over to HBD website Lion of the Blogosphere and talk about Brazilian prostitution in a post about Latino actresses such as Cameron Diaz.
