Each month, our journalists go meet an Observer to take a closer look at events they have witnessed.
Brazilians are reacting in shock and anger after a young man was suffocated to death by a security guard in a supermarket in Rio de Janeiro on February 14. Activists have started using the hashtag #VidasNegrasImportam ("Black Lives Matter”) to encourage people to share their experiences of racism.
