Market strategist Marc Faber under fire for racist remarks

By Julia Horowitz October 17, 2017: 8:32 PM ET


Faber, who is well known for his market pessimism and often referred to as "Dr. Doom," said in the October edition of his "Gloom, Boom & Doom Report" that it's a good thing white people colonized America.

Faber continued on to say that he's "not a racist," and that he just wanted to highlight "the reality -- no matter how politically incorrect."


He's being dropped like a hot potato, resigning from boards and being outright canned.

Surely he knows he has to do the public apology tour and atone, right?



Reached by email, Faber stood by his remarks.
"If stating some historical facts makes me a racist, then I suppose that I am a racist. For years, Japanese were condemned because they denied the Nanking massacre," he said.

Whoah! I'm blown away this guy decided not to apologize. What about you, ATS?

"Thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks," he wrote. "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 continued on to say that he's "not a racist,"


like many racists he apparently does not think he is racist.

I think he was likely ready to retire
and used the opportunity to say what he thought.

Better late than never.

I, for one, am extremely grateful for the European incursion into North America. I and my family are grateful for what this nation has given us.

Actually by him not saying sorry it just means he is being honest about the fact that what he said is really what he thinks.

Doesn't make it any less stupid of a thing to say obviously. But at least he's not trying to lie about afterward and make up some lame excuses as to why it's not what he meant to say. We all know that's exactly what he meant so he may as well stand by it rather than insult everyone again by trying to lie his way out as if we're too dumb to figure it out ourselves.

But that's what the world is today. When you say something stupid, everyone is going to know about it and you're going to have to explain yourself. The days of just publicly being an ass are over to some extent. No more hiding from the things you say.

Doesn't mean you can't still say them. But you're going to be held accountable for what message you're putting out. So make sure you think before you speak. Because you just might have to explain the reason for it and if you don't have anything better than your own ignorance to back it up, you might be in some trouble.

I often wonder what the world would be like if Europeans had never set foot in the Americas.

The only good thing about the Trump Residency is the fact that the scum of America feel emboldened enough to speak out loud their hidden filth.

Makes identifying & ostracizing them that much simpler.

Let's be grateful those Europeans came and stole all their land and almost completely exterminated them though!

Hallelujah, praise the lord for the Europeans!

I tire of guilt trips I had nothing to do with. It's over. Long gone.

Deal with it.

Well I guess what we would call democracy and constitutional government was already thriving here amongst the iroquois confederation.

As someone who gets to live in this country, I'm very grateful...

History isn't pretty. People have been raiding and stealing land since the beginning of time. Native Americans weren't some peaceful people sitting around campfires singing and being one with nature either.
