What happened between their forefathers and our forefathers is so far back — right, wrong or indifferent — that I don’t see why we owe them anything.
John Wayne (Playboy, May 1971)‏

The white man is very clever. He came quietly and peaceably with his religion. We were amused at his foolishness and allowed him to stay. Now he has won our brothers, and our clan can no longer act like one. He has put a knife on the things that held us together and we have fallen apart.
Chinua Achebe, Things Fall Apart
