Apparently, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva only blames the “white part” of President Obama for the economic downturn.
Brazil’s President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva on Thursday blamed the global economic crisis on “white people with blue eyes” and said it was wrong that black and indigenous people should pay for white people’s mistakes.
Does anyone else see the irony when the president of Brazil - - starts demonizing white people with blue eyes?
Speaking in Brasília at a joint press conference with Gordon Brown, the UK prime minister, Mr Lula da Silva told reporters: “This crisis was caused by the irrational behaviour of white people with blue eyes, who before the crisis appeared to know everything and now demonstrate that they know nothing.”
Well, he is obviously referring to Tim Geithner here.
He added: “I do not know any black or indigenous bankers so I can only say [it is wrong] that this part of mankind which is victimised more than any other should pay for the crisis.” (H/T - Financial Times)
So, da Silva is the president of Brazil and he knows of no black or indigenous bankers? What kind of racist state is he running down there?
You would think that Master Race Aryan National Bank would hire at least one natural-born Brazilian.
