Utter tosh… I am NON-anglo-saxon and currently earn about 370K USD per annum. What you should have said is that white people in general are wealthier than others but given that there is considerable overlap in the distribution of wealth there is a significant minority of NON-whites who are wealthier than the average white person. This is especially true of foreign black visitors to Brazil. This is equally true of intelligence btw. The problem with what you wrote is that it is exactly those at the bottom of the “whiter” pile who (equally flawed) reason that they are likely to be better off than any NON-white that they meet and act accordingly. I also attended Oxford and UCL too. So I suppose that makes me…. lol Its is this type of well-meaning but flawed turn of phrase that really annoys me p.s. My 1st post
