Brazil’s Lula Blames "Blue-Eyed Bankers"

This is certain to promote peace and goodwill with respect to the current financial crisis/downturn/recession/depression thingie. Here is Brazil’s President Lula on the people behind the troubles:

This crisis was caused by no black man or woman or by no indigenous person or by no poor person. This crisis was fostered and boosted by irrational behaviour of some people that are white, blue-eyed.

He forgot to mention the connection to global warming. Anyway, when challenged on his claim, Lula said this:

I only record what I see in the press. I am not acquainted with a single black banker.

Apparently Stan O’Neil didn’t make many biz dev trips to Brasilia during his Merrill Lynch tenure.
