The site dedicated to Brazilian women of African descent
Note from BW of Brazil: While you read the latest absurdity coming out of Brazil I want you to ask yourself, again, “Are we really all equal?”, in reference to the oft-repeated phrase heard throughout the country whenever an instance of obvious unequal treatment is recognized. The fact is, in terms of the social hierarchy, Brazilians continue to harbor sentiments that were established during more than three and half centuries of slavery. I’m actually curious to know which belief system is more common: those who truly believe that Brazil is a country based on equality, those who know that it’s not and those who know it’s not but pretend that it is. I also wonder, does the boss lady in today’s story think her ass doesn’t stink too…
Madame throws out dishes and silverware used by maid and fires her for using the bathroom

“The cleaning was fine, but I didn’t like something you did,” wrote a woman on WhatsApp as she fired her maid. The reason: she used the only bathroom in the house and ate with her plates and silverware. “Besides being disgusting, it’s rude,” exclaimed the lady. A printout of the conversation went viral on the social networks.
The Facebook page “Eu, empregada doméstica” (I, maid) gathered, for some time, has reported and testified to the humiliating and vexatious situations experienced by domestics in Brazil. It was created by Joyce Fernandes, better known as Preta Rara (meaning ‘rare black woman’). Today, a historian, rapper and activist, Preta Rara was a maid in Santos (São Paulo) and began to gather testimonies from colleagues in the profession.
Marginalized, the maid profession gained a sigh of dignity when, in 2015, Dilma Rousseff sanctioned a law guaranteeing more rights for these workers.
The situation, however, remains absurd. A report released this Wednesday (22) by the page shows the humiliation that a lot of women who do cleaning work still suffer. A printout of a Whatsapp conversation shows the patroness “Dona Juliana” firing a housekeeper who had done a “good cleaning.” The reason: she used the only bathroom in the house.
“Here at home we only have one bathroom and you used it because I heard the flsuh. Do you know how unhygienic this is? Do you do this at the house of the people you work with?”
The domestic woman, for her part, did not accept it. “I worked liked I was condemned and didn’t even have the right to use the bathroom?”
The humiliation didn’t stop there. “It doesn’t interest me, my dear. I don’t want that kind of person in my house. Besides, I threw out the silverware and plate you ate out of. “
The post revolted net users and went viral in social networks.
Check out the messages.
Is everything ok, dear?
Good. I am sending a message about the cleaning.
In fact, I don’t want for you to come anymore. Don’t get me wrong, but the last time you came I didn’t like some things that you did.
Yes, it was great. This isn’t the problem. Here at home we only have one bathroom and you used it because I heard the flush. Do you know that this is anti-hygienic how you use the bathroom of others? Do you do this in the house of people you work for?
Besides disgusting it’s rude. I will spread this on Facebook so no boss picks you up.
