Quotes:
From "Roots: Part I (#1.1)" (1977)
Wrestler: Kunta Kinte, the panther has courage. So does the warthog. Which kind of courage should a man have?
Kunta Kinte: The best kind.
Wrestler: If it is for certain that you are not yet a man - and that is for certain - then it is more certain that you are not a philosopher. "The best kind" is not an answer, Kunta Kinte.

Wrestler: They all say what a brave animal that warthog is.
Kunta Kinte: That's right.
