'Unaccustomed' debate on race sparked in Brazil

Matt Frei reports

Brazil is one of the most ethnically diverse countries in the world and many Brazilians pride themselves as having a society without overt evidence of racial tension, and some even deny that racism in their country exists.

But a recent move to institute affirmative action for poor blacks and address inequalities in educational opportunities has sparked an unaccustomed debate on race.

Dammit, I swear I've read somewhere BBC videos used to have an embed option.
