Thank God white people populated America, 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.
I am not a racist, Faber continued, but the reality - no matter how politically incorrect - needs to be spelled out as well.
The comments in his newsletter were circulated on Twitter after subscribers scanned and posted it.
CNBC and Fox Business Network, the business news television channels where Faber has been an occasional guest commentator for years, said Tuesday that Faber was now off their booking lists for their shows.
If stating some historical facts makes me a racist, then I suppose that I am a racist, Faber said by email.
Maybe I am wrong and the U.S. would be far more prosperous if the blacks had populated it but then please explain to me why you would think so.
(Faber is a Swiss economist residing in Asia, he's not an American and he doesnt live in America, though he does contribute to American business channels like CNBC and Fox Business)
Ive seen many White supremacists on social media ask "well what's wrong with what he said? Pre-colonial Africa didnt contribute anything to the sciences and technologies!".
But anyone with an even basic understanding of African history knows thats false. It's interesting that the professor mentions modern Zimbabwe and the Mugabe era as his example of Black failure and intellectual incompetence. But the Shona people, who occupied ancient Zimbabwe were known for their feats of engineering and architectural skill.
Great Zimbabwe:For centuries, this ancient Shona city stood at the hub of a vast trade network.
White supremacists cant even get their own lies and fabrications right. Maybe they should spend less time disparaging other races and cultures and more time actually learning about them before they speak so arrogantly about what they have or havnt contributed to the world.
