It's not white people's fault they invented Western Civilization or brought forth upon the American Continent a new nation conceived in liberty and dedicated to the principle that all men are created equally and that thereafter, they applied in some small measure, reason and science to the problems humans face in living. It's also not Scandinavian people's fault they have the best standards of living. It's just how history happened.

But equally true is that fact that white people have sometimes turned their accidental advantages to exploit those farther back down the curve.

But in a world of people who have not yet discovered how self hate is killing them all, the matter of envy of those better off from those less so is inevitable. The nature of hate is the wish that others suffer what you have suffered. It is the nature of hate to put people down. And it is self hate also that causes us to take offense at what others say. We personally identify with everything that is actually accidental.

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.
Lot of sentences Craig, yet no answer to my question.

If we're defauting on loans we owe them, I'll accept his critism.

If the Brazilian bankers etc invested in MBS or CDS, that's their own problem.

If he's complaining that they can't borrow our money from us, well he can stfu.

You blue eyed devils!

Proof:
"White, white as you folks... with empty eyes and a big hollow voice. He loves to travel around with a mean old hound." - Tommy Johnson describing the devil in O Brother, Where Art Thou


No one knows what its like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes

No one knows what its like
To be hated
To be fated
To telling only lies

But my dreams
They aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free

No one knows what its like
To feel these feelings
Like I do
And I blame you

No one bites back as hard
On their anger
None of my pain and woe
Can show through

But my dreams
They aren't as empty
As my conscience seems to be

I have hours, only lonely
My love is vengeance
That's never free

When my fist clenches, crack it open
Before I use it and lose my cool
When I smile, tell me some bad news
Before I laugh and act like a fool

If I swallow anything evil
Put your finger down my throat
If I shiver, please give me a blanket
Keep me warm, let me wear your coat

No one knows what its like
To be the bad man
To be the sad man
Behind blue eyes

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

As a white guy with brown eyes, I have to say I strongly dislike my blue-eyed cousins and blame them for the following things

- Poorly made toilet paper
- Milk expiring too quickly
- Dolly Parton
- Windows ME
- Steve Jobs' ego
- Those socks made in china that only last about 2 weeks before getting a hole in them....damn you!!

Bastards. Utter bastards. I hope you all rot in a green eyed hell.

Getting rid of it is tremendously difficult. There are a couple of ways, one of which is to feel it all the way to it's core, to it's root traumatic cause, but knowing you have it and seeing how it works can put distance between you and autonomic unconscious reaction. Knowledge is power here. You can intellectually see that what you unconsciously feel and don't fully understand, must be a lie.

I told a black coworker about this, and he confirmed that it is indeed true, but said the guy shouldn?t have said that in public.

So having hazel eyes I half apologized to the non-white people of the world (do Asians count too and whites with tans?)

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!
Uh, yes they do, just as everyone hurt by the economic slowdown caused by wrong actions does.

Guys, you are all misunderstanding what Lula said/wanted to say...

He was trying to say that the world economic crysis was caused by irresponsible bankers, investors and big companies of developed nations. Those people are most blue eyed.

I'm tired of all the fingers being pointed at the Caucasian race, if it weren't for blue or brown eyed, or even hazel eyed white men, alot of other races would still be living in mud huts worshiping some sungod or warring with Neighboring Tribes.

Most of the slaves were brought into bondage by their own greedy race...

It's nice to have someone that can be blaimed for all of the ills befallen mankind.

So now I'll shut up and put my sunglasses over my blue eyes..
