First things first.....

:camera:'s?

Secondly, yes. You're female. The fact you are a blonde female with blue eyes just means that you'll be the first to be convicted of financial crimes against humanity.

I have green eyes as well, but was born with blue eyes, so am I only partially at fault?

Umm.. So how again is this affecting Brazil?

Is it that we no longer have enough of our money to loan them?

Did their banks buy MBS?

Either way, tough sh!t and he can quit whining.

(Nope, I don't have blond hair or blue eyes)

Egg Shen... EGG SHEN! You have come a long ways to find me. But it is too late. There are two girls with green eyes, and I will marry them both. And then I will sacrifice loki8481 to appease my emperor and live out my earthly pleasures with Schadenfroh.

You only get $90K a year? You should talk to your IBCC* union rep, you're getting ripped off.

So the white guys with blue eyes are the cause of the economic crisis, but its the brown eyes brown skin that goes for all the government corruption, blatant bribery, and collusion with the drug dealers? I see how this works ...

You know the White race is dying off and I bet 200 years after it?s is gone people will still be blaming ?Whitey? for everything going wrong.

Are you kidding? The financial crisis has greatly harmed all kinds of other nations because of the economic slowdown.

As I understand it, in Brazil the feeling is a huge resentment that their previously thriving economy has taken a huge hit because of some bastards who were irresponsible.

Pretty much a similar sentiment to much of America, except that as a largely non-white nation, they refer to the people running the banks in the US and Europe racially.

Pretty politically incorrect by our (current) culture - but the reading comprehension is pretty crappy in this thread to misinterpret that he said ALL whites with blue eyes.

For some Joe Schmoe here to try to make a crack about his role in causing the crisis when the guy was clearly talking about the financial centers of the US and Europe is mistaken.

Politicians often pander to local views - the Willie Horton presidential campaign ad was no less offensive, indeed more offensive, for its use of injecting racism into the election in a way that was *just* deniable enough for a phony pretense to defend it. I would criticize his using race to make his point - but it should be read as criticizing the financial centers of the US and Europe, and he has a point on that, there is justificaton for criticism there.

You surely realize those being hurt like Brazil have economies that are heavily based on Western consumption? That was their mistake, they put to many eggs in one basket, they have no one to blame but themselves for that, period!

Hey, we're trying. In the old days we just used to kill 'em and take what we wanted.

"Western" = white with blue eyes?

You need to get outside more. Or stop shopping at black-owned stores only.
We must all be Nazis....as blond as Hitler, as chaste as Rohm, as skinny as Goering, etc. etc. Its all our fault. :(

And before the crisis, they looked as if they knew everything about economics."


<- white guy with blue eyes.

My bad. :(
Fortunately, Da Silva's pea brained opinion doesnt really matter... Not even remotely newsworthy. In other news, in many places in the world, many assholes have asshole opinions =)
