Congratulations on saying something just as ignorant and uneducated as the Brazilian president.
He might have been off base somewhat, and Politically incorrect, but the fact remains that the most vocal racists who speak of "Oppression", and the "White Devil", are typically they themselves recipients of Employment, Benefits, and Government funded Aide courtesy of "White People".
Oh, and yes, by-in-large Latin America is far more racist than what many encounter within the United States. They not only have Skin Color prejudice in Latin America, but many nations also judge you on what SHADE of what color your skin is.

While i think the brazil guy is an idiot
and while i really wish i had seen swatmans comment (just out of curiosity)
i have to say this, being white myself:
This is no different than white people clenching their purses or patting their wallets when they walk down the street next to a black guy.
This is no different than a man from Puerto Rico getting angry because you called him Mexican.
This is just racial stereotypes coming back to bite white people in the ass.
No, it's not all white people. It's not all black people, and it's not all latino people, in any stereotype.
But, these fat filthy rich white business men have finally created an atmosphere where white people are finally getting a taste of their own medicine.
A taste, in my opinion, that is long overdue.
