De beste slavene
"...Indians made very inadequate slaves. They would not give up their gods and preferred to starve themselves to death rather than submit to indignity. The Negroes on the other hand, being from different parts of West Africa, had no common language, so it was a simple matter to confuse them and to brutalise them into being enlightened by Christianity."
Fra "The War of Don Emmanuel's Nether Parts" av Louis de Bernières.
