people's meat" and its use dates back to colonial times when african cooks had to make do with very limited resources. pork has always been common to this area where people raised and still raise their own pigs to butcher. ribs are on the menu today, and i am not complaining. but, look, everything that brazilians claim to love is african, right? the music, the food, all of the classic dishes. do you feel, given how central everything african is to brazil and brazilian identity, do you feel that afro-brazilians have political representation? >> zora santos: no. no. >> anthony: no. no. it's like nobody -- let me think. uh, no. >> anthony: why? why? why? >> anthony: everything in africa is so fundamental to everything that makes brazil awesome. i mean, i could say the same thing about the united states, but --
