Who told you we wanted to have white colonies?
Portuguese were born to impregnate brown and black people.
Portugal didn't have enough population to send over, we were spread out too thin already all over the world. Instead we just sent African slaves and breed with the natives. Not a big brain move.
The same happened with every European power, with the exceptions of north America, Australia and new Zealand, because they were scarcely populated to begin with.
In Mexico 80% of natives died with European diseases but their population base was so large that they recovered in a few decades this time with the admixture of the Spanish conquistador's.
On the other hand England had 0 impact on the Indian population genetics, why because they were immune to European disease and had a huge population.

Same thing happened in muttmerica except the percentage was 56%.
Portugal focused in trade because the owners of business (bourgeoisie and nobles) were more interested in building a castle back in Portugal than doing a international business. Portugal is a small country with small mind people, but is also the only good way of living without depression at every corner.
There is a very large white population in Brazil. They make up around 50% of the population. The common genetical denominator between all ethnic mixes in Brazil is the Portuguese denominator as the italians and germans that migrated heavily to the South in the late 1800s mingled between them and with the portuguese but not with blacks or indians, unlike the portuguese. Many white people were forced to migrate to Portugal from Portuguese Africa as Retornados in the 1970s after the 25 of April coup. Most of them had migrated to Angola in the second half of the 20th century.
Portugal embraced local peoples wherever and whenever possible,
Cabo Verde for example is the only majority creole nation in Africa. Many high caste indians were wedded with portuguese noblemen since pretty early in the 1500s in Goa and Portuguese India. I could go on about all the portuguese communities but the point is they mingled a lot and absorbed traits from the locals.
Actually, this anon is right. White population probably is under 40% of Brazil, and you'll not find it in places like Bahia or Pernambuco, you need to go to the south or the middle west, regions colonized by germans, portuguese, italians and their descendants.
Light skin Pardos aren't white
Portuguese refer to anyone above France as "steaks".
Why? Cause those are the people that get red instead of brown when exposed to the sun.
Now guess what happens to Portuguese when they move to the equator?
We are like Russian Hamsters in the eternal African summer, anglo.
Winter is not coming.
Pretty much got high off of slavery and there was no incentive in sending our people over there. Portuguese generally colonized for the money, that's basically it.
