We are a country that embraced many immigrants, I am german/italian so I have blue eyes, my girlfriend is chinese/spanish/black. Lots of people came from Italy/German, some from Russia to work in coffee farms around 1870-1900. After 1905 came a lot of Japaneses too, we are the biggest japanese colony outside Japan.
Check this table:
Main groups of settlers and immigrants in Brazil, from 1500 to 1970
