Ah, NOW we understand why he calls the one tribe “servile”. They are actually slaves. And guess what, Tarzan fans? It has nothing to do with Europeans or imperialism or colonialism. Nosireebob, it has something to do with an all-too-common reality in African history, blacks enslaving blacks. (And if you think that’s fun, wait until you learn about Muslims enslaving both Europeans and black Africans at different periods of history. The numbers involved will astound you.)I don’t mean to speak against any particular group of people here. This is a human problem and always has been. Only the justifications have changed.Meanwhile, not every mainstream-Christian missionary that went into Africa (or anywhere else) wanted to be the vanguard of political exploitation, far from it. To deny this is to deny reality. Human beings are capable of perverting any noble purpose but it helps nothing to impose a stereotype on the complexities of such dealings.
