Brazilian President blames financial crisis on “white people with blue eyes”

On the world financial crisis,

“Brazil’s President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva … charged last week that ‘this is a crisis that was caused by white people with blue eyes.'”

Three things cross my mind when I read this:

1. Da Silva, whose popularity ratings are plummeting, is pandering to Brazil’s non-white majority of voters.

2. How would Brazil fare if it kicked out all its white people? Only marginally better than Zimbabwe, I would imagine.

3. Why is a world leader like da Silva able to blame “white people with blue eyes” for the financial crisis without being denounced as a racist, but if a world leader like Vladimir Putin (accurately) points out that Africa has a history of cannibalism, or if former Malaysian leader Mahathir Mohammed (correctly) asserts that the U.S. is fighting a proxy war against Islam on behalf of Israel, the Western media immediately starts shrieking about “racism” and “anti-Semitism”?

Would a white Western leader be allowed to blame skyrocketing crime rates on non-white immigration with impunity, even if that assertion is, in fact, correct? It’s rather amazing that whites take statements like da Silva’s lying down.

Two finer points:

a. Isn’t da Silva himself white? He sure looks it to me.

b. Aren’t a disproportionate number of the “white people” who have brought about the world financial crisis in fact Jews? If so, why doesn’t da Silva mention that fact? Is it OK to demonize “white people with blue eyes” but not Jews? Is da Silva scapegoating “white people” in an attempt to take heat off the Jews?

    Part of me wishes curses were real.

    If I could, I’d place a curse on every politician globally; every time they lied, diarrhea would spew forth from their mouths.

    In a figurative sense, diarrhea already does spew from their mouths. 🙂
