    There is anger in Brazil after a Black man was beaten to death by two white security guards at a supermarket last week. A new video shows the moment Joao Alberto Silveira Freitas was pleading for his life. Freitas’s death is being compared with that of George Floyd’s, in the United States. Protesters accuse Carrefour of murder – but they also blame the government for not acknowledging and fighting racism. The government’s response to the killing has sparked a wave of demonstrations.
