Island in the Sun

And I've lived in a world
through which you moved only as... shadows...

to be feared or ignored.
I've now lived in the two worlds
of Santa Marta.

I know how they both think,
how they both feel.

I also know that
they cannot exist...

if they're cut off from each other
by suspicion and fear...

each in its own loneliness...
as no human being can exist,
in his own loneliness.

This bridge I can help you build.
I ask for your faith, your trust.
Do not deny them to me.
I'll answer any questions
from the floor.

The floor is now
open for questions.

- I have a few, Mr. Chairman.
- [Applause]

I was as moved
by Mr. Fleury's speech as anyone else.

And I agree when he says that the two worlds
cannot exist separate from each other.

The question I would like
to ask Mr. Fleury is this.

Does he think that
the only issue here is one of color?

Is he saying that that is the reason
why we should vote for him?

Is he saying,
"Vote for me because I am one of you"?

Is that what
you're saying, Mr. Fleury?

Because if you are,
I would like to take that issue up...

with your permission, Mr. Chairman.
Mr. Fleury said he has
existed in the two worlds of Santa Marta.

- Which do you think he'll represent?
- I would like to answer that.

- When I'm finished, Mr. Chairman!
- [Crowd Murmuring]

Would Mr. Fleury
also answer this?

You said that you came here tonight
only to speak the truth.
