Andrée Blouin "My country, Africa"

"...Above all what is important is the right to defend one's self. That is the basis of all other rights."

"Africa must somehow corrupt whites, I decided. How else to explain the mentality of most of the colonials I had known: narrow-minded, mediocre, coarse, and scornful? A kind of malediction must descend on white people when they came to our land, I decided, blinding them to knowing us as human beings."
