Diplacement of People as a result of the world cup
Few Months ago Brazil hosted the biggest sporting event in the world. The world cup. During that time, I was in Brazil. I was there for over five months studying and doing field research. My research was on the displacement of people as a result of the world cup. When I first arrived in Brazil in Rio, I automatically noticed that Brazil was a country divided by the color of your skin. For a country that has the largest black population outside the continent of Africa, I could count the amount of Afro Brazilian at immigration. While driving from the Rio International airport into the city, I noticed that the government has built high fences on the side of the highway. I became curious and I asked the driver why was that awkward fence there and he said because the government doesn’t want you guys the “tourists” to see the slums. I was indeed a gringo at that point. After a month of living there and learning the language I started conducting my research. I first

asked the rich people in Zona Sul what they thought about the world cup? Their response was that they are already planning on renting their houses for an obscene amount of money and use it to vacation. But then, when I asked a bus driver who lived in one of the favelas about what he thought about the world cup..his response was that at the rate at which prices are going up already he is not going to be able to have a decent life with the amount he is being paid. So prices were going up, but wages remaind stagnant. Now the question is who suffers in situation like that? I ventured out into few of the favelas one of them being the city of God and it was insane. There was a constant presence of paramilitary police holding their guns and trigger happy. The government of Brazil has given the police 100 million reals to pacify the favalas (kill the drug dealers and anyone that basically look like a drug dealer….Most people that live in theses favalas are drug dealers. I spent two weeks living in these favalas and during those times I realized that most of the people living in these favalas wake up at 5:00 am everyday for a 2 hours long commute to go to work. But yet they have been classified as drug dealers just because of where they life. Worse, as the even drew closer and closer, people starting getting kicked out of the places they have called home because they give a bad image to the magnificent Rio. The flawlessness city of sin.
I became friends with some of the people that have been displaced as a result of the pacification of the favelas. It was as if these people don’t matter. Their right striped away from them and the government wonder why some of them are involved in crime.
I want this paper to be about the displacement of people as a result of the WC and the human rights violations the world brought to Brazil. I had all my research notes stolen from my old laptop but this is a research paper. A FIELD RESEARCH PAPER TO BE PRECISE. USE SOURCES RELEVANT TO THE RESEARCH AND BASED ON WHAT I HAVE PROVIDED ABOVE AS A BASE FOR YOUR RESEARCH.
Also make it personal. As a black man from America living in Rio I was sometimes treated differently until they heard me spoke English with an American accents.

Understanding and Coping with Change

In literary terms, the “conflict” of a story’s plot is represented as two opposing forces (man vs. man,
man vs. self, man vs. society or an element of society, or man vs. nature) that revolve around the main
character and drive the events of the story forward. Whatever the case may be, the story’s “conflict” is
represented as a dilemma or concern (sometimes known as the “theme”) that is conveyed within the
story and reinforced through the story’s characters, details, and other elements.
Select one of the stories below. In an essay of at least 4-5 pages (8-10 paragraphs minimum), identify
