Quotes:
From "Roots: Part II (#1.2)" (1977)
Wrestler: Kunta Kinte, you do not eat?
Kunta Kinte: When I eat the white man food, my stomach comes up.
Wrestler: So does mine. But eat the food, Kunta. Listen to me! Listen carefully. You are a warrior, and a warrior must eat because he must be strong to kill his enemy. So eat the white man's food. Live, Kunta. Live and be strong! Be strong to kill the white man!
