Brazil / President seeks 20% racial jobs quota

Brazil’s president is to ask parliament to pass a law reserving 20% of the nation’s government jobs for blacks.

About half of Brazil’s 204 million people are black – more than in any country except Nigeria.

Blacks face persistent socio-economic inequality in Brazil and President Dilma Rousseff says her proposal will help reverse that. She said “affirmative action is essential” for creating equal opportunities.

There is no word on when congress might begin debating the proposal.
