Of course, by President Lula’s logic, white, blue-eyed people also tend to have democratic government. While dark-skinned, brown-eyed people are associated with dictators who wear funny hats. Isn’t logic wonderful?
Lula is right that the financial meltdown will hurt the poor the worst, and many of the victims will be in the developing world. What he doesn’t understand is that white, blue-eyed bankers will happily screw white, blue-eyed workers. Greed is color-blind.
