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.
