Albert Schweitzer on Niggers


"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

A fascinating quote. I would love to know specifically Schweitzer's experiences that brought him to these opinions. What book is this quote from?

Q.

It appears Dr. Schweitzer had too much integrity to bowdlerize his empirical findings, no matter how shocking or heretical. In other words, a true scientist.
