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
Nationality/origin Number of settlers
Africans 1 4,000,000
Portuguese 2,450,000
Italians 1,622,491
Spaniards2 716,052
Lebanese/ Syrians 100,000[45]
Japanese 248,007
Germans 3 240,000
Poles 4 110,243

I don't know. I guess it all started on PlayStation Network where I wanted to make a new account since my old account had such a horrible name and I somehow came up with this. Been using it ever since and don't really mind it I guess, would like to think of something better to change it to though.
