It appears that the author is conflicted: on the one hand he wants to tell these men's very compelling stories of their love, lust and sexual escapades with very beautiful Brazilian women, but, his primary audience is African American women. So, if he lets their accounts of their experiences stand on their own he would lose his core audience. He would also compel more African American men to visit Brazil. So he has to write under the guise of "exposing" or "outing" these men as a public service to African American women.
It's hard for me to be convinced that a relatively small group of African American men, who have the means and desire to travel to Brazil once a year for two weeks represent a gathering threat to the fabric of black society. Especially when the author only interviews about a dozen men and has not gone to Brazil himself to confirm or refute the accounts of these men. Black women already have enough to be distressed about. If you are going to alarm black women of the possibility that Brazilian women are stealing their men, at least do some actual research and present some real data. Anything less is a disservice to black women in particular and the black community in general.
Another thing Mr. Woods didn't mention of the prices it cost for the company of the women, most guys acted like it was free, noooo these women are working for survival and some support their families in other cities where they are from. Now you might get a "discount" from some of the women if they are really in to you and you see over several trips down there, while I'm on that subject I have learned that some of the women are trying to find happiness in there lives and if you respect them they will open up more to you. Also in my experiences they have asked my opinion on life choices that they are contemplating. I have women I've met over the years who still e-mail me from time to time as far away as Spain that let me know whats going on in there life. On my last trip in March 08' I had a woman that I spent one night with in 2000 come up to me in the Help and greeted me like a long lost friend, actually she had to jog my memory but I did remember her so if you need ego stroking you difinately will find it there. I agree when Mr. Woods stated its not about the sex its about what is hard to find in a mate here in the states.
