(Freshly typed. I’m not a professional, but I think I caught everything. Um… no idea how to parse the sentence, but whatever.)
Woman: Uh, everything about our nation and god and everything.
Man: Uh, huh.
Woman: I just want to know, how much do you love your country?
Man: What is your nationality?
Woman: I’m confused.
Man: About your heritage.
Woman: so what is my nationality, what colour are all y’all?
Man: Alright. Let me explain. Let me help you out. Let me help you understand.
Woman: defend it, I love all of you.
Man: At one time, Jewish people lived in Germany, you understand that right ?
Woman: I’m German as well.
Man: I know, that is why I asked you what is your nationality. At one time Jewish people lived in Germany, didn’t they?
Woman: Did they?
Man: And during WW1 they fought for Germany, they loved Germany. Until one day Adolf Hitler begins to exterminate them and then they turned on their country and went for a land of their own.
Well, this is what you have to understand: we have served this stinking country. There is nobody more patriotic than Black people. We are the people that die in your wars, build your cities, and raise your children and bleed in your all of your wars and reap none of the benefits.
There is nobody more patriotic than us. There is nobody that served America more than us, until one day we found out that this is the land of our oppressor, this is not our homeland. So we decided to go found our own land. So we decided to go find the land of our ancestors, just like the Jewish people did in Germany.
Know what the, the problem with white people is? You don’t respect anybody’s humanity except for your own. You don’t respect anybody’s pain, except for your own.
You expect Jewish people to hate Hitler and hate the Nazis, but you can’t understand why we should hate you. You can’t understand that because you’re not human. And you’re cruel. And you’re selfish. And if you had any love and compassion in your heart, you would know how much you deserve to be hated. If you had any love in your heart.
You white people are merciless. And you hate to look at anybody as a human being.
How dare you ask us: “have you loved America?”!? [background woman crying, ‘you’re horrible’] We have loved you for forever. And you have always hated us.
We have loved you consistently for 400 hundred years. We prayed to that white Jesus. And we saluted your flags. And we died in your militaries. And you beat us like dogs.
How dare you ask us, “Have we loved you?”!?
I have a question for you. When in the hell have you loved anybody but yourself? [woman crying and pointing, saying ‘you’re horrible’]
Give me Ezekial 35 (? Not sure what is said here)
I’m looking at you square in your eyes and tell you this:
That you are completely cruel. And you know why your heart is broke? Because I’m telling you the truth for the first time in your life.
Your whole life you thought that you’ve been compassionate and caring, but meanwhile, you know what you are? Just another white girl standing on stolen ground, [background, ‘what? what?’] reaping the benefits of bloody fathers.
Woman: You’re horrible.
Man: That is what you are. Even though you think you’re so liberal and so kind. All you are is another child benefiting off the murder of your father. That is who you reall are. And you should face it. And you should fall on your knees and beg repentance, for your evil, cruel, corrupt selfish life. That you’ve lived here on the bones of the North American Indian, on the bones of the slaves, on the bones of the Puerto Ricans, on the bones of the Mexicans, on the bones of all the poor people. That your father murdered so that you could go to college. And so that you could get drunk and high, and have a good time.
Your father had to murder for that privilege. You understand that, don’t you? Your father had to kill. Your grandfather had to steal. So that you could live like Pamela Anderson [background woman crying, ‘you’re horrible’] in America.
Give me Ezekial 45. That is the truth. I’m sorry. I’m showing you love! That’s love. I’m telling you the truth. Ain’t that real love?
[Woman sobbing. Cuts to music video]
someone was asking for a transciption again…
this makes me wanna shout and talk in tongues…
The worst of all possible things that could happen would be to lose that language [that black people love so much]. There are certain things I cannot say without recourse to my language. It’s terrible to think that a child with five different present tenses comes to school to be faced with those books that are less than his own language. And then to be told things about his language, which is him, that are sometimes permanently damaging… This is a really cruel fallout of racism. I know the Standard English. I want to use it to help restore the other language, the lingua franca.
1. He ø runnin. Standard American English (SAE )= He is running.
2. He be runnin. SAE = He is usually running or He will/would be running.
3. He be steady runnin. SAE = He is usually running in an intensive, sustained manner, or He will/would be running in an intensive, sustained manner.
4. He(’s) been/bin runnin. SAE He has been running–at some earlier point, but probably not now.
Other examples: I been knowing her. SAE = I have known her.
About eleven o’clock he been eating. SAE = … he was eating.
5. He BEEN/BIN runnin’. SAE = He has been running for a long time, and still is.
-This is a use of the African American English (AAE) stressed been/remote BIN.

this is for whoever was telling me that AAVE isn’t a real thing… UGH
Note how precise each AAVE phrase is.

It’s not a book learning.

me: starts to critically analyze almost every aspect of modern society
"Consensual sex" is just sex. To say that implies that there is such a thing as "non consensual sex", which there isn’t. That’s rape. That is what it needs to be called. There is only sex or rape. Do not teach people that rape is just another type of sex. They are two very separate events. You wouldn’t say "breathing swimming" and "non breathing swimming", you say swimming and drowning.
[W]e are told by those authoritatively assigned as our “teachers” — inside and outside classrooms — what to think and how to think it. We are taught to be good, subordinate servants. Perhaps most of all, and most debilitating to us, we are conditioned to love our oppressors and to blame ourselves for the systemic problems we face.
Can’t make rent? Get a second job. Still not enough? Should have gone to college. Did go to college? Should have gone to a better one. Went to a fantastic university? Should have avoided loans. Born into poverty and couldn’t avoid them? Too bad, should have been born rich.
No solutions ever actually emerge because they were never meant to. Capitalists know this. Finding solutions would mean actually dismantling the education of oppression and attacking poverty where it is born — in the hands of the rich.What if I told you trying to eliminate poverty through “education” is bullshit?
