Lula Makes Very Good, Very Hilarious Point
Brazilian 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."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.
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."
