During a press conference, da Silva, a socialist who told Brown poor countries should not have to suffer because of the mistakes of the rich, suddenly pointed his finger at Brown and said, "This is a crisis that was caused by white people with blue eyes. And before the crisis, they looked as if they knew everything about economics."


<- white guy with blue eyes.

My bad. :(

See! I knew the Germans were responsible. But we didn't quit when the German's bombed Pearl Harbor - And we won't quit now!

My apologies.

Everyone knows that we are all born with large trust-funds, and automatic $90K/yr salaries. We never have to struggle, and are always looking for ways to hold everyone else down.

I'm sorry as well, although I have green eyes.

It's a well known fact that only white people are greedy.

oh, yeah, I did cause this. Sorry about that.

You know how it is... first you're just oppressing everyone in sight, just your normal white guy thing, then, oops, you've caused an economic crisis. It happens.

You think they made up the quotes?

Financial Times

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.?

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.?

There is a history of Westerners advising developing nations to make economic decisions that led to disaster. These economic boom/bust sequences are felt in the West, but not nearly to the extent of the developing states. I can understand South Americans and Southeast Asians having animosity towards Western bankers.

:roll:

"Western" = white with blue eyes?

You need to get outside more. Or stop shopping at black-owned stores only.

Female blonde with blue-ish eyes. Do I get half or twice the blame because of my double X chromosome?

I think the reason lula blames the white hair blue eyed man instead of the Westerners, is because they consider themselves westerners as well (rightly so).

He only has one blue eye anyway - the other one's fake. He lost it getting stomped in a university rugby match. Seriously.
