Forbes Lists 400 Richest (White) People in America

The economy is still in the crapper, so why don’t we celebrate that by looking at Forbes’ list of the 400 richest people in the nation? As usual, pretty much everyone on the list is white. If that surprises you, please read the following very carefully: White people own everything. It’s not fair, but it’s true.

Bill Gates leads the pack this year with a total net worth of $66 billion, followed by Warren Buffett ($46 billion) and Larry Ellison ($41 billion).

As for New York media moguls, our Mayor, Michael Bloombergcomes in at a respectable 10th, with $25 billion. Rupert Murdoch is tied for 36th with Mark Zuckerberg, at $9.4 billion. We’re pretty sure that makes them best friends, but we’re still waiting on confirmation of that.

A few others: Samuel Newhouse comes in at 46 with $7.4 billion; Donald Newhouse ranks 51st, with $6.6 billion; and Mort Zuckerman ranks 190th, with $2.4 billion.

Forbes’ 2011 Billionaires List Released

Forbes has released its newest World’s Billionaires list, and like usual, the top spots were filled with by Carlos Slim, Bill Gates and Warren Buffett.

As you might have guessed, the top New York media mogul on the list was Michael Bloomberg, who placed 30th. Behind him, way down at the 122nd spot was Rupert Murdoch, followed closely by Samuel Newhouse at 149.

The last guy on the list – at 1,140th place -  is a Russian named Dmitry Troitsky. We bet he waits until the millionaires list comes out before he starts talking trash to his friends.
