Santa Barbara d'Oeste, Brazil

For those not aware of the fact a contingent of Confederates migrated to Brazil after the South lost its war for independence because they  would rather have immigrated to Brazil than live in a South dominated by Carpetbaggers and Scalawags. I found it curious that the Sons of Confederate Veterans have adopted a no tolerance policy for white racism, whatever that means. They recently protested a visit by David Duke to New Orleans in order to try to save the Liberty Monument which the forces of political correctness want to destroy. It commemorates a reconstruction era victory in a battle with the Union League.

However, one can see the descendants of those who settled in Brazil are slowly becoming assimilated into Brazil's hodgepodge of multi-ethnicity. One wonders if this will be the South in 100 to 150 years where people of mixed Caucasian, African, and Latino ancestry parade around in Confederate uniforms trying to channel the martial spirit of their ancestors much like the cargo cult of New Guinea.
