I found this statement in the Brazil article on Wikipedia. Is this true, as it's stated? Or is racial discrimination as an act, like in employment practices, etc., considered criminal? I don't really understand how racism in general could be outlawed.

68. Most of the complaints filed at the Special Race-Related Crimes Station involve verbal abuse. In 1993, charges were brought in 41 cases for verbal insults and in 7 for the crime of racism. In 1994, 29 cases involved insults and 11 racism. In the rare instances in which offenders are charged with racism, it has been difficult to obtain consistent, convincing proof that discriminatory conduct actually resulted from racial or colour prejudice. The specialized station's statistics show that substantial proof is obtained in just 30 per cent of the inquiries undertaken to investigate conduct related to racial prejudice.
