Frustrated: Black American Men Flee To Brazil (Powerful Documentary)

Incredible must see documentary about frustrated Black American men finding romantic happiness in Brazil. Very truthful and inspiring.

Al Greeze decided to produce Frustrated after reading a September 2006 Essence Magazine article (Blame it On Rio) written by Professor William Jelani Cobb, which stated that African men were travelling to Brazil for sex vacations with Brazilian prostitutes and the adulation of the Brazilian women Greeze wanted to either confirm or deny and reveal the answers from the men themselves and find out if it is for love and companionship or just sex. The effect may have been suspected but what is the cause?

Through research, personal accounts and testimonies from the men who fall in love or date Brazilian women and the reaction and opinions of the women both in the U.S. and in Brazil, the film touches and unlocks some heartfelt emotions to these complex issues including the economic and educational divide between the sexes and the possibly unachievable roles each places on the other. Although the film exams the controversial topic of relationships outside of the African American race and the country, the film's goal is to elicit open conversation and communication amongst men and women, strengthen the family dynamic and give both sides a platform to give an honest account.

Frustrated ask such questions as why are African American men finding love outside of their race, what do they feel is missing from African American woman and are African American women now in competition with Brazilian women as they are with other races...is there really a threat, or are the women saying good riddance we don't need you or are they fighting for their men?

  1. it is absolutely unbelievable that this woman at the beginning could be so close minded.....i myself have even given unattractive women in america a chance only to be snubbed by them.......if a man was a millionaire i guarantee you this woman would jump all over him no matter what his education...say, lil wayne hahaha

  2. Can anyone give me reason(s) why black American men (or American men in general) should not get involved with Brazilian or other foreign women?

    I am not really interested in Brazilian women. But, I do like Colombian women, whose country is next to Brazil. I also like Dominican women as well.

    Why stay home and make myself miserable by finding a local woman who does not really want you when you take a flight overseas and find many foreign women who are interested in you?

    That is why black American men go to Brazil to meet/marry women.
