My Portuguese friend responding to me talking about how prisons are cruel here: "People have awful opinions everywhere. For instance, in Portugal, people often talk about how we should have prisoners fight the wildfires, which would be awful for many reasons."

Um. Well. Uhhh.

@wilkie Yup. And I've heard worse here in Brazil. The thing is people tend to dehumanize others if they don't know them
