"I have given my life to alleviate the sufferings of Africa. There
is something that all White men who have lived here like I have must learn and
know: that these individuals are a sub-race.
They have neither the mental or emotional abilities to equate or share
equally with White men in any functions of our civilization. I have given my
life to try to bring unto them the advantages which our civilization must
offer, but I have become well aware that we must retain this status: White the
superior, and they the inferior.
For whenever a White man seeks to live among them as their equals, they
will destroy and devour him, and they will destroy all his work. And so for any
existing relationship or any benefit to this people, let White men, from
anywhere in the world, who would come to help Africa, remember that you must
maintain this status: you the master and they the inferior, like children whom
you would help or teach.
Never fraternize with them as equals. Never accept them as your social
equals or they will devour you. They will destroy you."
- Dr. Albert Schweitzer, missionary to Africa
