(from the movie Cry, the Beloved Country by Miramax Films)

Jarvis [reading the writings of Arthur Jarvis]: '...It is not native crime which is the problem, but white crime...'

Harrison: Arthur and I didn't always agree on the native question-- he was an idealist. I think we ought to be hard on the natives, but Arthur, he said, 'Whatever crimes they committed were more or less our fault.' I don't really understand him-- I don't mean that he wasn't sincere.

Jarvis: No, no, of course not, of course not. [reading again] 'What sort of memorial do we want?'

Harrison: What?

Jarvis: I'm reading what he wrote, just before he...'What sort of memorial do we deserve? We call ourselves a Christian people-- when posterity comes to judge us it will consign us to the sewers of history as tyrants, oppressors, criminals...'
