Marc Faber’s defense of the white race got him into trouble earlier this week, as documented on this site here.
A reminder of what he said: “And thank God white people populated America, and 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,” he wrote.
Marc has responded without apologizing or groveling.
Hip, hip, hooray!
Having been forced off the boards of Sprott, NovaGold, and Ivanhoe mines and excommunicated from mainstream business media following his comments earlier in the week , Gloom, Boom, & Doom Report writer Marc Faber responds to his racism allegations…
“I have been labeled by the mainstream media as a racist – I don’t think this corresponds at all with reality.
I wrote a report about capitalism and socialism and about private property rights, and I also wrote about the tendency nowadays to want to rewrite history.
In the US they are trying to tear down statues of people who had a different view from other people at the time… they also tried to tear down statues of Columbus..
I think that when you have civilization, when you have culture, you should remember your past.
Our past – the white man – has certainly not been glorious, it’s been very cruel with the periods of imperialism and colonialism being very cruel.
But the fact is that the white man and the Europeans brought a lot of skills and knowledge and a work ethic that built a very prosperous society… until very recently.
I think that to try to deny the fact that the western white man made America great is just not right and for that reason I was attacked very badly.”
The conversation then continues to discuss cultural clashes, skin color, religion, confederate statues, African repression, capitalism, gold, bitcoin, Hillary Clinton, the swamp, President Trump, and America’s military-industrial complex running foreign policy.
We suspect Faber’s reponse will do him no favors in this age of ever-increasing virtue-signaling, but he has at least clarified his perspective.
Marc’s response. Twenty-two minutes.
Here’s a perceptive Zerohedge comment:

In an age of lies, telling the truth is a revolutionary act. Pretty pathetic, but true. To state that white men have given the world practically every invention, discovery and other useful idea (not to mention the most exquisite art, music and architecture) is not supremacist at all. In fact, whites have altruistically given away all of their creations freely so that every other race can benefit. They should be thanked and applauded, not ostracized and scorned.
Faber is to be commended for his courageously simple statement of facts. The more people speak the truth, the quicker will be the vanquishing of the (((satanic cabal))) which lords over our politically correct world today, turning it into a sewer of unnatural suffering.
