Mr. Simon is an avaricious patrician that is utterly intolerant of all persons born in Africa. It's important to note that he does not simply loathe the commonly perceived African man (sub-Saharan) but all men begotten on African soil. This includes Dutch descended Afrikaans speakers and North African Arabs. He has uncontrolled uveitis that will likely progress to blindness if he doesn't act quickly. Poor man, he has no one.
