1) What is it? 2) All the Whites are leaving. They are being evacuated. 1) What…what about us? 2) We have been abandoned. 1) But the soldiers will stop the killers… 2) Listen, listen to me, Tassie, listen. I said ALL the Whites are leaving.

All the superpowers. Everything you believe in, Paul… They think you’re dirt, they think you’re done. You’re worthless! 1) I’m afraid I don’t understand what you are saying, sir. 2) Oh, come on, don’t bull shit me, Paul! You’re the smartest man here. You got them all eating out of your hands. You could own this freaking hotel! Except for one thing… You’re black. You’re not even a nigger. You’re an African… They’re not going to stay, Paul. They’re not going to stop the slaughter.
