The chief justice of the Supreme Court of Brazil (STF), Luiz Fux, recalled that the Federal Constitution guarantees equality among human beings and repudiates prejudice, as it honors Black Conscience Day, celebrated on November 20. The chief justice also pointed out that the Supreme Court, as guardian of the Magna Carta, has the mission to defend human rights and the protection of vulnerable minorities.

"Brazil was the longest slave society in the world, and we must daily remember this to promote social and labor inclusion as a maximum historical rescue," the justice said during a lecture at the XXVI National Congress of Civil Registry (Conarci) this Friday (20).

Chief justice Luiz Fux has already been honored by the Education and Citizenship of Afro-descendants and Needy (Educafro) and with the Black Race Trophy, of the Afro-Brazilian Society of Socio-Cultural Development (Afrobras) and the Zumbi dos Palmares College, for his engagement in the fight against racial discrimination and for his contribution to the valorization, inclusion and respect of the black Brazilian.
