This excerpt is adapted from Imperialism by J.A. Hobson, a British scholar.

The period of imperialism has witnessed many wars. Most of these wars have been caused by attacks of white races upon so-called “lower races.” They have resulted in the taking of territory by force…. The white rulers of the colonies live at the expense of the natives. Their chief work is to organize labor for their support. In the typical colony, the most fertile lands and the mineral resources are owned by white foreigners. These holdings are worked by natives under their direction. The foreigners take wealth out of the country. All the hard work is done by natives.

This is an extract from Confessions of Faith written by Cecil John Rhodes, a British imperialist, in 1877.

I contend that we are the finest race in the world, and the more of the world we inhabit (live in), the better it is for the human race…It is our duty to seize every opportunity of acquiring (getting) more territory and we should keep this one idea steadily (firmly) before our eyes that more territory simply means more of the white race, more of the best, the most human, most honorable race the world possesses.

Extract from ‘The Pearl’ by John Steinbeck.

Kino hesitated a moment. This doctor was not of his people. This doctor was of a race which for nearly four hundred years had beaten and starved and robbed and despised Kino’s race, and frightened it too, so that the indigene came humbly to the door. And as always when he came near to one of this race, Kino felt weak and afraid and angry at the same time. Rage and terror went together. He could kill the doctor more easily than he could talk to him, for all of the doctor’s race spoke to all of Kino’s race as though they were simple animals. And as Kino raised his right hand to the iron ring knocker in the gate, rage swelled in him, and the pounding music of the enemy beat in his ears, and his lips drew tight against his teeth – but with his left hand he reached to take off his hat. The iron ring pounded against the gate. Kino took off his hat and stood waiting.
