RIBEIRO, Carlos Antonio Costa. Class, race, and social mobility in Brazil.Translated byAndré Villalobos. Dados [online]. 2007, vol.3Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0011-5258.
This article analyzes the differences in inter-generational social mobility and schooling between white, brown, and black men in Brazil. The main objective is to analyze inequality of opportunities for mobility and educational transitions. The results indicate that for individuals from lower social origins, inequality of opportunities is significantly marked by racial differences, and that for persons originating in the upper classes, racial inequality influences the odds of social mobility. The results suggest that theories of stratification by race and class in Brazil should be rethought, taking into account the observed interactions between race and class.
