"I've been in there listening to
this whole thing, the whole thing tonight, man. You know, it's
relevant, man, but you know what? Even this whole thing you're
doing now is only relevant to you, man. It ain't relevant to me.
You know how come? Because you fail to realize what the reason is,
man. How come, you know, dig: you go in there and you're
getting all these reports, man, on atrocities. Yeah, man!
They was splitting this cat's skull, and splitting his skull. But
you know what the real issue is, man? That the thing is racism.
It's racist. It's racist, man. They over after the
Vietnamese, you know, the resources. They are also after the
Vietnamese because they are racist, man. I had all the hell I had
because of racism. You know like, dig man. My oily room and
my first sergeant man was a Ku Klux Klan. They had the
motherfucking Klan right in the fucking Company."
"Whoever had the most ears, they
would get the most beers, and you'd trade your ears for beers." --
