Peter Cartwright: European Passenger
Conductor : [stopping Gandhi on the train in South Africa] What are you doing in here, coolie?
Gandhi : I reserved this car. I have a ticket.
Conductor : How did you get hold of it?
Gandhi : I sent for it by post. I am an attorney.
European Passenger : An attorney! There are no colored attorneys in South Africa - move your black ass into third class where it belongs!
Porter : I'll take your luggage, sir...
Gandhi : No, wait.
[he takes out his card and shows it]
Gandhi : You see? 'Mohandas K. Gandhi, Attorney at Law.' I am on my way to Pretoria to conduct a case...
European Passenger : Didn't you hear me? There are no colored attorneys in South Africa!
Gandhi : Sir, I was called to the bar in London, and enrolled in the High Court of Chancery. I am therefore an attorney. And since I am, in your eyes, 'colored,' I think we can deduce that there is at least one colored attorney in South Africa.
