“There is yet a greater crime than slavery—for a crime it is of a deeper and more unpardonable dye—for a white man and a Christian to invite a negro to achieve his freedom by a carnival of crime...... I say it is the very highest iniquity in the chief of a Christian Government to excite the negro, with the ferocity of the tiger, to the perpetration of cruelties that cannot be numbered, and crimes which I dare not even name, with no possible termination to that desperate and deadly strife of races but in the extermination of the weaker and the vanquished.”

—Mr. Horsman’s speech in the House of Commons in the debate on the seizure of Alexandra.
