Flashback: GW Bush visits Brazil Nov 2001



Do you have blacks, too?





George W. Bush, to Brazilian President Fernando Cardoso
November 2001


WASHINGTON - It was Condoleezza Rice, national security advisor, who helped her boss out of the embarassing situation. During a conversation between the two presidents, George W. Bush, 55, (USA) and Fernando Henrique Cardoso, 71, (Brazil), Bush bewildered his colleague with the question "Do you have blacks, too?"

Rice, 47, noticing how astonished the Brazilian was, saved the day by telling Bush "Mr. President, Brazil probably has more blacks than the USA. Some say it's the country with the most blacks outside Africa."

Later, Brazilian president Cardoso said, regarding Latin America, Bush was still in his "learning phase."
