The other, more affluent Latin societies of Brazil, Columbia and Panama have a significant black population and more opportunities are available. In Lima, Peru, however, only 2 percent of Afro-Peruvians go to college. Many take jobs on the sugar cane plantations.
The race of people isn’t accounted for in the Peru Census; Afro-Peruvians account for 10 percent of the population of 29 million people in Lima. The separatism among races in Lima was so strong that President Alan Garcia issued a public apology to the Afro-Peruvian people of his country in 2009.
