Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva: His Truth is Accurate

Financial crisis caused by "people with blue eyes": Brazilian ...
To deny this means one is living in intellectual darkness. In clouds of misinformation.
To immediately question why people like President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva would say such a thing indicates that the questioner refuses to pin the tail on the donkey. The guilty.
As a result of greed, something the white man introduced to his 'mentees', the poor will have to suffer, not only in America, but worldwide. Even the Japanese are assigning blame in a Western direction. They are on the right track with their criticism.
This (international financial crisis) is the outcome of people with white skin behaving selfishly and with GREEDY intentions.
Too bad we all going to HELL because of the actions of the 'perfect human':
The Blond headed, blue-eyed...
Not so perfect after all, huh?
Written by Brian E. Payne.
This commentary reaction, and any words in response from Muata are not an all out blast of all white people. It was written to 'second' the claim of Brazil's president. Perhaps, if one removes their political correctness he/she will recognize that he is on to something critical.

I've never thought them to be perfect, or someone to emulate. It seems the blinders are finally come off for all those who did, hunh? Just think how many folks have been thinking this and have not been given the impetus to say something until now. This could, quite possibly, start something that will take them off their slave-built gravy train. Is that the conductor's whistle I hear signaling the next stop? ;-)

Clever Brian. You are a creative guy. I have written on several of your posts about emotional responses to social issues and a utter disregard for anything financial and more benefifical to our cause and what do you do? You found a way to intertwine them. I love it.

I would agree that the people at the forefront of the crisis are white. But then I'd say "what's your point" The majority of the US is white as are the Corporate executives as well. If we want to attribute this to white greed then I say to you all, go for it. If we want to really dive deep into the heart of the matter then we should probably use good logic and realize that there are few clean hands in this mess. The victims here are those of us who followed the plan. The plan is work hard, get a good education, nice job, save at least 10% of your income in saving, max out your 401k, you know all of the fundamentals keys to a successful lifestyle and a decent retirement. We are the victims and not Joe the Plumber of Tyrone the plumber that is a single man driving an escalade and living 40 miles from his job and eating fast food all of the time and never paying his emergency room bills and always behind on the rest of his bills. Those people aren't victims as they just are the problem.

We sit back and blame wall street for selling derivatives and playing dirty when in reality they shouldn't bear all of the blame. And don't be fooled by any means that there are no black execs out there wrapped up all in the mess. AMERICAN GREED is the blame for this.

At the end of the day we need to move back to cities, get rid of those gas guzzling SUV's, come up with some alternative energy sources, stop depending on foreign oil which btw is up $25 a barrel in 2009. I expect it to be at 100 again real soon. We need to do these types of things to get back on our feet as a nation. China bought a lot of US treasuries and if we don't figure something out and learn to live less extravagant lifestyles you better start teaching your kids Mandarin.

So I wouldn't put much weight on anything leader from Brazil says. After all their economy is in shambles as its always been and in 2002 ( i think) they elected a president or pm that didn't have a HS diploma. Yes the old boys club is in charge and they are at the center of the crisis but they only robbed those of us who did it right. The rest of the people who overbought and aren't paying their bills are just as much to blame as the banks.

Muata responds to LS:

Great response - but the FACT of the matter is the WHITE MAN IS AT THE ROOT OF MOST OF THE WORLD'S PROBLEMS. I just call it like it is. You can't dispute that the white race, primarily white men, are the genesis of America's financial issues. Yes, Pookie bought a house he could not afford - but those in control, those at the essence of the schemes, are white. Instead of getting on the defense acknowledge the damn truth: Whites have been in control, and they jacked things up. Assign a color to the problem instead of speaking in terms of generalities. Well, when it comes to black you are implicit in your analysis. I am too - but I ain't cuttin these white generators of problems any slack all in effort to not be called a racist. Whatever! Call a damn spade a spade. The spade in this case is WHITE! Now that appropriate blame has been assigned, people in countries that these whites call third world will have to suffer even more. I have seen the sufferage first hand. People dying because white people refuse to combat AIDS the righteous way. No, they will walk around Africa (the Pope) and do the typical: rebuke condom usage. They will sit back and allow children to die just so that they can profit in some way or another. And, before you even mention the black leaders in Africa who kill their own just know that the turmoil in many cases stem from division that whites created. Man, the more I type the more I am reminded of those whites who castrated black men, raped our women, and when someone with an intelligent mind assign a name to their behavior that person becomes a racist.

Reader LS responds:

How many black people do you know that have been castrated or hanged? How is it white people's responsibility to fight aids in black run countries where the leadership refuses to even acknowledge the crisis?

Assigning color is easy. White are the majority so if you have to assign color you chose them easily. Let me ask you though my friend. Are whites to blame for problems in places where black or asian are the majority? And let's keep it real since you called me out. Brazil can talk about the blue eyed white man all they want but I think a person of my complexion has a better opportunity here than in Brazil! That place is racist as hell but the peopel at the center have mostly brown eyes.

Africa at some point has to take some credit for Africa's own problems as well as how Americans as a whole have to share some of this blame. I am a victim here point blank and I cannot assign color to the problem because Pookie and the president of AIG both have a hand in it.

Historical context is great when needed but the history of this problem has less to do with our countries historical social injustice. This problem is rooted deeply in American greed and white people aren't the only greedy people in this country that's for damn sure.

BTW this comment "And, before you even mention the black leaders in Africa who kill their own just know that the turmoil in many cases stem from division that whites created."

How long are Africa's problems going to be excused because of European colonialism? When can the corrupt leaders take some blame. And the Pope? cmon BP they will never promote condom usage. That ship won't sail in your lifetime.

Like I said before a million times, this is way deeper than wall street and the skin color of the guys in charge. This is a time for a fundamental change in American standard of living. I have been doing it right and my networth shrank faster than and iceberg in the Sahara desert and it's not because of rising debt. It's because of falling credit limits, property value, and a DOW under 700.

But if you feel better blaming white people then go ahead. I called the spade a long time ago. I said American greed will be its downfall and if white people were the only ones overspending, overborrowing and selling debts that can't be paid then I'd be the first to say its all white people's fault. But I cannot with a straight face say that as I just watched a relative of mine lose their house then buy a navigator.

Reader YJ responds:

At first I wasn't going to say anything, but ya'll forced my hand. I gotta roll with Brian on this one. Here's just one reason why:

[all “bold” emphasis is mine]

On a Sunday afternoon, April 23, 1899, more than two thousand white Georgians, some of them arriving from Atlanta on a special excursion train, assembled near the town of Newman to witness the execution of Sam Hose, a black Georgian. The event assumed a familiar format. Like so many lynchings, this one became a public spectacle. As in most lynchings, the guilt of the victim had not been proven in a court of law. As in most lynchings, no member of the crowd wore a mask, nor did anyone attempt to conceal the names of the perpetrators; indeed, newspaper reporters noted the active participation of some of the region’s most prominent citizens. And as in most lynchings, the white press and public expressed its solidarity in the name of white supremacy and ignored any information that contradicted the people’s verdict.

Sam Hose worked for a planter, Alfred Cranford. He asked his employer for an advance in pay (some reported he had tried to collect wages already owed him) and for permission to visit his ill mother. The planter refused, precipitating a harsh exchange of words. On the following day, while Hose chopped wood, Cranford resumed the argument, this time drawing his pistol and threatening to kill Hose. In self-defense, Hose flung his ax, striking Cranford in the head and killing him instantly. Within two days, newspapers reported an altogether different version. Cranford had been eating dinner when Hose—“a monster in human form”—sneaked up on him, buried an ax in his skull, and after pillaging the house, dragged Mrs. Cranford into the room where her husband lay dying and raped her.

If versions of Cranford’s death varied, the story of Sam Hose’s fate did not. After stripping Hose of his clothes and chaining him to a tree, the self-appointed executioners stacked kerosene-soaked wood high around him. Before saturating Hose with oil and applying the torch, they cut off his ears, fingers, and genitals, and skinned his face. While some in the crowd plunged knives into the victim’s flesh, others watched “with unfeigning satisfaction” (as one reporter noted) the contortions of Sam Hose’s body as the flames rose, distorting his features, causing his eyes to bulge of out their sockets, and rupturing his veins. The only sounds that came from the victim’s lips, even as his blood sizzled in the fire, were, “Oh, my God! Oh, Jesus.” [my note: notice that Jesus didn’t come for him and any other black man, woman or child—but how could we expect that when we won’t come to each other’s rescue?] Before Hose’s body had even cooled, his heart and liver were removed and cut into several pieces and his bones were crushed into small particles. The crowd fought over these souvenirs. Shortly after the lynching, one of the participants reportedly left for the state capitol, hoping to deliver a slice of Sam Hose’s heart to the governor of Georgia, who would call Sam Hose’s deeds “the most diabolical in the annals of crime.”

The next morning, smoldering ashes and a blackened stake were all that remained. On the trunk of a tree near the scene, a placard read, “We Must Protect Our Southern Women,” and one prominent Georgia woman, Rebecca Felton, gave voice to that sentiment: “The premeditated outrage on Mrs. Cranford was infinitely more intolerable than the murder of her husband.” As for Hose, Felton claimed any “true-hearted husband or father” would have happily dispatched the “beast,” with no more concern than if he were shooting down a mad dog; indeed, “The dog is more worthy of sympathy.”

The leading newspaper in Atlanta urged its readers to “keep the facts in mind” when they judged the actions of the lynchers. “The people of Georgia are orderly and conservative, the descendants of ancestors who have been trained in America for 150 years. They are a people intensely religious, homeloving and just. There is among them no foreign or lawless element.” The newspaper then provided the “facts” of Hose’s alleged offenses, rendering his fate that much more explicable. “When the picture is printed of the ravisher in flames, go back and view that darker picture of Mrs. Cranford outraged in the blood of her murdered husband.”

In a subsequent investigation, conducted by a white detective, Cranford’s wife revealed that Hose had come to the house to pick up his wages and the two men had quarreled. When her husband went for his revolver, Hose, in self-defense, picked up and hurled the ax, which killed Cranford instantly. Hose then fled the scene. He never entered the house, she told the detective, nor did he assault her. Still another investigation, conducted by Ida B. Wells, a black journalist who had been driven from Memphis in 1892 for her “incendiary” editorials on lynching, reached the same conclusions. The results of neither investigation were of any apparent interest to the white press or presumably to the white public.

Thousands of black men and women met the same fate. Varying only in degrees of torture and brutality, these execution rituals were acted out in every part of the South. Sometimes in small groups, sometimes in massive numbers, whites combined the roles of judge, jury, and executioner. Newspaper reporters dutifully reported the events under such lurid headlines as “Colored Man Roasted Alive,” describing in graphic detail the slow and methodical agony and death of the victim and devising a vocabulary that would befit the occasion. The public burning of a Negro would soon be known as a “Negro Barbecue,” reinforcing the perception of blacks as less than human.

The use of the camera to memorialize lynchings testified to their openness and to the self-righteousness that animated the participants. Not only did photographers capture the execution itself, but also the carnival-like atmosphere and the expectant mood of the crowd. . . . [As a people these rodents were desensitized and willing to do barbaric things long before we were; their children and generations were and are groomed for it.] – excerpted from the book Without Sanctuary, pages 8–11.

My final note: disenfranchised people, poor people, materially obsessed people, non-violent and violent Afrikans, etc., exist because of a traumatic history such as this; it is because of blue-eyed, brown-eyed, all-kind-of-eyed Europeans, including and especially jews, that our people have suffered so; it is also because of white men and women in black skin (negroes) that we have suffered—may all their lights be snuffed out, never to be lit again.

May we also extinguish forever the lie of HIV in our communities, here and abroad. For each of us that carries the misdirected torch that our people are infected with a lethal virus called HIV; for each of us that brings cancer-causing latex condoms to Afrika and the urban areas of Amerikka; for each of us that blindly passes out fliers, sends e-mails and wears red ribbons crying for our people to know their “status,” may you find the true wisdom and willpower to reveal the truth—that HIV is a lie, that none of our people have ever died due to HIV, but from the toxic drugs and other underlying, untreated conditions.

May you then immediately cease and desist with assisting these devils in murdering our people based on lies. Do not let it be that because you were too lazy or too stubborn to research the truth for yourself that you allowed your people to continue dying, and then turned around and blamed it on their ignorance, when your ignorance had jelled into stupidity, because you knew or had the fortitude to know, yet you did nothing and you said nothing.
