Default Confederados.

I never knew about this until today.

I've always wondered why for some if elections were not going to go their way that they indicated they would go south, mostly Costa Rica, Panama... etc...

I guess to do it is not new at all.

I googled "Fiesta Confederada Brazil" images. Interesting. I didn't know this either. It might be that the Confederate traditions last longer in Brazil than they do in the United States.

Nice images;

Made me proud to see it but at the same time made me shameful of the way we are treated here

If I remember right some of them are black and they celebrate their confederate history as well. I saw a documentary on them a few years ago. Search Youtube for this video: The South Has Risen Again... in Brazil — Meet the "Confederados"
