America Is Rich Because White People Populated It - Marc Faber

Swiss investor and frequent business media commentator Marc Faber thinks the U.S. is a rich country because white people, “and not the blacks,” populated America first.

The Financial Times was first to report on Faber’s comments after it obtained an investors’ newsletter that Faber — also known as “Dr. Doom” — wrote.

“And thank God white people populated America, and not the blacks. Otherwise, the U.S. 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, but the reality – no matter how politically incorrect – needs to be spelled out,” Faber said.

When reached by the Financial Times reporter Tuesday, Faber said in an email that he stood by his comments because “this is an undisputable [sic] fact.”

“If stating some historical facts makes me a racist, then I suppose that I am a racist,” he said.

Later Tuesday Faber was asked to resign from the board of Sprott, an asset management company where he served as an independent director on the board since 2010.

Faber said Confederate symbols should be considered “statues of honorable people whose only crime was to defend what all societies had done for more than 5,000 years: keep part of the population enslaved,” according to the Financial Times.

Interesting. Does being rich free you from the constraints of political correctness?

Nice picture. Very true. This shit doesn't happen in countries not run by white people. I mean, look at Haiti which became independent basically simultaneously (in historical terms) with USA. Amiright?

No, this is still an incredibly racist thing to say. Why does he think it needs to be said ?

Of course the Europeans in 1600 through 1920 that immigrated to America were an entirely different group than black Africans that ended up coming to the Americas. And this is true for many reasons other than skin pigmentation. We actually have no way of knowing what America would be like, if there were enough black Africans with the desire and ability to immigrate here of their own free will, who did so. And if they were met and joined by other dark skinned people from other countries in Africa or elsewhere, similarly motivated, we have no way of knowing what kind of country they would have built. It probably would have been taken from them by acquisitive and violent Europeans before we would ever find out. Right ?

I don't say that to begrudge my white ancestors. It's just who we are. Some of us are honest enough to have mixed feelings about that.

The truth is, the spread of Judeo-Christian culture (not dogmatic Catholicism) gave great prosperity to the west, not SKIN color. There are no peer reviewed, credible, scientific studies that will claim that "being white" or "being black" alone can predict future success in life. But you can predict success on cultural behaviors and social norms.

The entire moral foundation of Western culture is based in Judeo Christian values, whether you are a religious person, or not, you cannot deny this fact. From marriage, to equality, to codes covering theft, murder, crime, etc, and how to treat your fellow brother within your collective. In fact you could make the claim that the enlightenment was setup and lead by Scientist who were strong adherents to Judeo-Christian ideology; Galileo, Isaac Newton, Francis Bacon, Maria Mitchell, and later on Albert Einstein himself. These people were able to escape the dogmatic nature of the Catholic Church and maintained the moral foundation of the Bible. It lead to the creation of one of the greatest nations the planet has ever seen.

This moral foundation lead to a culture that had one of the lowest single parent family rates in the industrial revolution, and the stability from the proliferation of the stable nuclear family created the bed rock for western culture to prosper generation after generation. Each generation became smarter than the last, and wealthier than the last. That is until leftism and big government came upon the scene. The single parent family rate began to statistically increase under FDR's "new deal", and steeply rose after Lyndon Johnson's "Great Society" initiative where millions upon millions became dependent on Government subsidies and handouts to survive, mostly poor blacks and minorities.

This is why anyone who actually believes in Leftism/Democrat policies has to be trolling, or literally someone of low IQ. Leftism has NEVER, ever accomplished anything without redistribution of wealth (theft), or extreme government totalitarianism (Slavery under the Democrat South, USSR, Mao's China, Pol Pot, etc).

That may be true, but its followers have always been predominantly white. Also there are studies that show differences in IQ were the Ashkenazi score highest, Asians and Caucasians pretty high and blacks generally lower. Whether those differences are enough to cause a big divergence in prosperity is questionable, it's probably more a cultural thing like you mentioned and the ghettoization of the US has not helped the blacks getting out of systemic poverty. But Faber is at least making a point worth discussing in the leftoid echo-chamber (not that they ever will) and he also has enough fuck you money not to care about the coming flood of deranged SJW fan mail and his forced resignations from various boards.

That's a good point. Africans vary tremendously in most biological characteristics (except perhaps pigmentation) much more than other geographic groupings vary. The tallest (Tutsi) and shortest (Pygmy) groups in the world are African, for example.

Many native Africans in the US are doing just fine, getting advanced degrees, making money, etc etc. But they tend to be the top Africans, and disproportionately from the Igbo people of Nigeria, two reasons they may not be quite the same people genetically as most American blacks. There are some estimates that about 15% of slaves were of Igbo origin, but probably almost none from the upper classes of their countries. In fact, the upper classes in Africa sometimes made a good living by selling other Africans as slaves.

There could be other "natural experiments" going on that we are still not well aware of. I worked in England for a summer in college, and my boss at British Telecom lamented the fact that Englishmen with ambition invariably emigrated to America, leaving England with a lack of ambitious men.

Another interesting case is Australia. I have relatives there descended from a guy who took part in a very violent murder in 1840 or so. The English routinely exported the most violent criminals to Australia for 80 years, and that may give Australians a somewhat higher genetic propensity for violence than other Anglo populations. Seemed that way when I was there, with posters warning young men not to ruin their lives by getting into drunken fights and killing someone accidentally.

Finally, I read an essay somewhere about how the Chinese authorities killed all men convicted of violent crimes for quite a few centuries, and how this may have led to a less violent population in the present day.

Yeah I've read literature that sort of makes sense that certain Darwinian development points may have been different between whites and blacks tens of thousands of years ago.

For instance because of the harsh weather of Northern Europe, to survive, people of that area had to develop agriculture, and all the associated tools, harvesting practices, and domesticating animals just to survive because of the seasons including a harsh winter, and shorter growing season. This was the FIRST tech industry of civilization. So less physical development, but more technological problem solving.

While in Sub-Sahara Africa, where the population was less dependent on domesticated animals and seasonal agriculture, and with long plains to traverse, people from that area physically developed to be more agile, quicker on the feet, and superior stamina to be able to move to different hunting grounds to feed themselves (which is why long distance running tends to be dominated by blacks, and the NBA and NFL for that matter).

That being said, I think that's probably .01% of the problem that hurts the black community. Their problems are mostly self inflicted. They commit half the violent crime in the United States, have the highest single parent family rate of any minority population, and they have the lowest high school and 4 year college graduation rates.

Here's the solution.

1. Graduate High School
2. Get married before Children
3. Get a job

You will statistically rise out of poverty if you follow those 3 simple rules according to a study done by the Brookings Institute (left leaning btw).

Nope... The indians would have killed all the blacks if they got uppity.
