"Those are lovely pearls."
"Oh... thank you. From my father."
"I wouldn't wear them to class."
"Maybe we should talk about art. Tito's got real talent, don't you think? You know something? I saw a picture just like this once, in a museum. Only it wasn't a black man, it was a jewish man. And instead of the big lips he had a really big nose, like a rat's nose. But he wasn't just one particular jewish man. This was a drawing of all jews. And these drawings were put in the newspapers by the most famous gang in history. You think you know all about gangs? You're amateurs. This gang will put you all to shame. And they started out poor and angry and everybody looked down on them. Until one man decided to give them some pride, an identity... and somebody to blame. You take over neighborhoods? That's nothing compared to them. They took over countries. You want to know how? They just wiped out everybody else. Yeah, they wiped out everybody they didn't like and everybody they blamed for their life being hard. And one of the ways they did it was by doing this: see, they print pictures like this in the newspapers, jewish people with big, long noses... blacks with big, fat lips. They'd also published scientific evidence that proved that jews and blacks were the lowest form of human species. Jews and blacks were more like animals. And because they were just like animals it didn't matter if they lived or died. In fact, life would be a whole lot better if they were all dead. That's how a holocaust happens. And that's what you all think of each other."
"In every war there is an enemy. I watched my mother as being half beaten to death. And watched as blood and tears streamed down her face. I felt useless and scared, and furious at the same time. I can still feel the sting of the belt on the back of my legs. One time he couldn't pay the rent. And that night he stopped on the street and pointed to the concrete. He said 'Pick a spot.'"
"Clyde was my boy. He had my back plenty of times. We was like one fist, me and him. One army. I sat there 'till the police came. And when they come, all they saw was dead body, a gun and a nigga. They take me to juvenile hall. First night was the scariest. Inmates bangin' on the walls. Throwin' out there gang signs. Yellin' out who they were; where they from. I cried my first night. I never let nobody know that. I spent the next few years in and out of Sayers. Everyday I would worry... when will I be free?"
"My brother taught me what the life is for a young black man. Do what you have to. Pimp. Deal. Whateva... Learn what colors to rhyme. Gang boundaries. You could stand on one corner, you can't stand on another. Learn to be quiet. The wrong words can get you popped."
"If you look into my eyes, you'll see a loving girl. If you look at my smile you'll see nothing wrong. If you pull up my shirt you'll see the bruises. What did I do to make him so mad?"
"At sixteen, I seen more dead bodies than a mortician. Every time I step out my door I'm faced with the risk of being shot. To the outside world they're just another dead body on the street corner. They don't know that he was my friend."
"During the war in Cambodia, they stripped away my father's dignity. He sometimes tries to hurt my Mom and me. I feel like I have to protect my family."
"I was having trouble deciding what candy I wanted. Then I heard gun shots. I looked down to see that one my friends had blood coming out his back and his mouth. The next day I pulled up my shirt and got strapped with a gun I found in an alley by my house."
"I don't even know how this war started. It's just two sides that tripped each other way back. Who cares about the history behind it. I am my father's daughter and when they call me to testify, I will protect my own no matter what."
"Nobody cares what I do. Why should I bother comin' to school?"
"My friends are soldiers. Not of war, but of the streets. They fight for their lives."
"I hate the feeling of a cold gun against my skin. It makes me shiver. It's a crazy ass life. Once you're in, there's no getting out."
"Every time I jump somebody again and make somebody part of our gang it's another Baptism. They give us their life, we give them a new one."
"I have lost many friends who have died in an undeclared war. To the soldiers and me it's all worth it... Riskin' life. Dodgin' bullets. Pullin' triggers. It's all worth it."
"This is The Diary Of Anne Frank... not Die Hard."
"I've never had a hero before. But you are my hero."
"Oh, no. No, no, no, young man, no. I am not a hero. No. I did what I had to do, because it was the right thing to do. That is all."
"We are all ordinary people. But even an ordinary secretary, or a housewife, or a teenager can within their own small ways turn on a small light in a dark room."
