Do You Agree With This Man?

His name is – Marc Faber, a wealthy Swiss investor based in Thailand. I am guessing he is so disappointed with what is happening in America that he included a not “politically correct” comment in his newsletter. Let me quote his comment: “Thank God, white people populated America, not blacks. Otherwise, the U.S. would look like Zimbabwe, which it might look like one day, anyway, but at least America enjoyed 200 years in the economic and political sun under a white majority. I am not a racist, but the reality – no matter how politically incorrect – needs to be spelled out as well!” (end quote). Well, as expected, howls of disapproval are so loud. He is branded as racist. But I agree with his last sentence – “I am not a racist, but reality – no matter how politically incorrect – needs to be spelled out as well!” Now, what do you think? Is he right or wrong?

Leaving the racist part out, I agree with the statement in principal.

@sumofalltears By the way, have you watched the movie - - "White men cant jump."? . . This is about basketball. . . I would say white NBA players could not fly like Lebron James and Michael Jordan . . the top 10 billionaires of America are whites. And if you consider Jews Caucasian (Most jews do). . . 48% of the 400 billionaires of the USA are American-Jews.

@sumofalltears Okay here is my point. Actually, it is what Mr. Faber is talking about. Black men's power/strength are in the legs; white men got them inside their heads.

@AkoPinay What is in your mind is actually not bad - - let us be the ones to judge what is in your mind. Just to remind you this is the period of crazy media and presidents (Kim ong-ong, Donnie, and du30) - - so, "anything goes!"

@antonbunot maybe if we are full of glutathione in our system, or bathed with zonrox and our skins turn white, maybe we can understand this man.

@ridingbet I don't think so! The late Michael Jackson did what you wrote . . . His thought about America never changed. . So, color of the skin is not just skin-deep . . It is inside-deep . . . hehehe

@sol_cee He is a Swiss investor . . . White guy. He is wealthy. His point here is - - If black people came first to America, it would not be like it is now (wealthy nation).

I think this man, Swiss German born in Zürich, is a racist, he has always been and this fact is well known.

@antonbunot It has always been considered a racist, even in the past. He moved away from Switzerland almost 50 years ago if I remember well.

His words contradict his intention. Fundamentally on many levels, he sounds hypocritical.
