Island in the Sun

But behave as though
nothing had happened.

- Lunch is ready, ma'am.
- Thank you, Mary.

That was a fine series of articles,
the best things I've read about the island.

As for that one today,
that was- that was the goods.

You said things
that needed saying.

From my point of view,
I can't tell you how grateful I am.

- In what way?
- In every way.

I've not been trusted.
The people here, West Indian...

they thought of me as a Fleury, a feudal planter,
bought their ancestors in the marketplace.

But now? I'm standing for the legislature.
Why not?

I combine black and white, the new and the old.
I've a foot in both camps.

And your article gave me
the guts that I needed.

- What'll it be, gentlemen?
- Rum and, uh, ginger. Two of them.

Just water.
I didn't see this before. But now I can
look out at those faces and I can say to them...

"My grandmother was
of African ancestry.

She came over in a slave trader
just as yours did."

Yes, I can say to them,
"I'm one of you now."

- Cheers.
- Cheers.

You do?
Who the devil are you?
