You never should have lifted them up Howard.
Morrison: Paul you conservatives make a mistake, you can't afford to strangle hope in people. Without Hope people will become dangerous.
Phillips: No Howard you liberals have let them invade our society, you give them jobs, political jobs.
Morrison: Paul you miss the point, it's only the smart ones they move up.
Phillips: Ha! That makes it even worse.
Morrison: You know we have to move them up, if we leave a smart one in the ghetto, he might develop into a leader against us. If we raise him up into white society we neutralized. He feels compelled to try to act like us, he loses his identity, and uh, his racial anger if he has any. He becomes alien to his brothers, and they realize he sold them out and they grow to hate him. He becomes worthless to them and safe for us. In fact in his love for the creature comforts, except for his color, he become one of us.
