Brazil President Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, left, blamed "white people with blue eyes" for the world economic crisis and said it was wrong that developing countries should pay for mistakes made in richer countries. Now the Brazilian president is being accused of being racist. President Lula da Silva has been very critical of the European Union and the US for tariffs on products from developing countries. The specific quote:
"This crisis was caused by the irrational behavior of white people with blue eyes, who thought they knew everything and now show they know nothing,"
"I am not acquainted with a single black banker."
