1. Our multiculturalism
Yes, we have had an ugly history of slavery, but nowadays the African culture is very much part of the Brazilian people. If you add to the mix the indigenous Brazilian people, and the European and Japanese immigration, you understand why people say anyone in the world could be Brazilian.
Soccer is very much part of the Brazilian culture, so it’s no surprise that we’re the most successful country in the world with five FIFA World Cup titles. And, if you check any international team that’s doing well, there’s probably one or two Brazilians in the team.
