Popular investor Marc Faber, author of the “Gloom Boom & Doom Report” newsletter, wrote in his most recent edition that he was glad the U.S. had been founded and ruled by white people rather than black people.
“And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the US 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,” Faber wrote in the newsletter, according to CNBC.
OK, a tad over the top perhaps, some will regard it as insulting. He’s got the right to say what he wants just as all others do to react to it. Shrug.
There was that comment by the ABC cameraman (??) watching the corpses flow over the waterfall somewhere in Africa who said along the lines of Thank God my ancestors were enslaved and shipped.
When asked if he stood by his statements, Faber shamelessly refused to back down from them, but indicated he still believed they weren’t racist.
