The discuission reminds me of Fifth Head of Cerberus, in which all parties 
(I think particularly of the three groups present on Sainte Anne before the 
French landing, but it applies equally well to humans thereafter) seem 
fairly well convinced of their own race's superiority.  Though in truth no 
group, aboriginal or human, appeared to have too much to be proud of.
