Of course we can’t be generic. Just as we cannot say that there is a consensus about what Brazilians think of the Irish, we cannot say that all Irish people have the same view as Brazilians.

Each person has their own experiences, their own perception and opinions about a certain person or group. An individual Irish person may have only had contact with one or two Brazilians, whether negative or positive, basing their views as a while on a small sample size, leading to distorted opinions.

Overall, Irish people generally have a positive opinion of Brazilians, considering them to be welcoming and friendly people.

However, it is always important to emphasize that all people deserve respect, so never address issues such as “my country is better than yours” or”are better than others”.
