blame problems caused by white people on non-white people

In the following three-minute clip, Congresswoman Michelle Bachmann (R-Minnesota) enacts the persistent tendency of white people to wipe their own messes onto the backs of black and brown people. What she’s reading into the Congressional Record here is part of an article from a right-wing publication, the Investor’s Business Daily, that blames the current financial crisis on “blacks and other minorities,” many of whom took out mortgage loans they later couldn’t afford. Never mind, she would probably say, that a lot of white people did that too.
