Lula Makes Very Good, Very Hilarious Point

devilwithhisblueeyesin.jpgBrazilian President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, on the world banking crisis:

"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."

Jesus maybe I could get into this whole "good left" thing. Did we mention he was standing next to British Prime Minister Gordon Brown, at a joint press conference, at the time? Awkward. Accurate! Awesome.
