- Your face.

- This ain't shit.

You should've seen me
a few days ago.

You'd have been proud.

- I ain't proud, Omar,
I'm sorry.

- Me too.

I fucked up, and I know that.

Look, if I tell you
why I was selling tits,

I mean, you can't go
running to McManus, okay?

- You have my word.

- Redding forced me.

I mean, I tried to tell
the motherfucker no,

but he just wasn't hearin' no.

- And I was too much of an ass

for you to come
and ask for help, right?

- I needed
those things you said,

just to straighten me out.

Shit, I mean, I even needed some
of that Ike Turner treatment.

Look, I'm sorry, you're sorry.

Next chapter, okay?

- You know the ridiculous irony
of this whole thing, Omar?

I was the one
with the addiction.

- Huh?
- My power trip.

I was high, 24/7,

being the master
of your recovery.

Power, it's as evil a drug
as anything else.

You know,
I would like you to call me...


- Kareem it is.

- I must say,
I think you're gonna be

nicely surprised
by the variety show,

and Omar White
is the grand finale.

- Wow, is he that good?

- I didn't say that.

I'm just--

I'm proudest of him
because he has really put

his heart and soul into this,

and as long as
he goes through with it,

he will have succeeded.

How well he sings
doesn't matter.

- So, is there anything I can do
to help at this point?

- As a matter of fact...
we need an emcee.

- Forget about it.
- Oh.

- I'm not that good
at ducking rotten fruit.

You think I'm kidding?

The mob at the Colosseum
in ancient Rome was kinder.

No, why don't you try Mukada?

At least

The butterflies are natural.

I mean, these motherfuckers

I need a little bit
of advice, man.

Now, I be seeing you
getting up there, you know,

Why not?

'Cause McManus and Said

Let me tell you something, cuz.

I already been down that road

Said feedin' me that bullshit

A phoenix rising

I'm just surviving the war, yo.

And me getting up on stage,

"I was wrong."

Very few men

- Okay, okay, I'm gloating.

But, you know, indulge me.

Omar White was a lost cause,
but I didn't give up on him.

I stayed by his side,
and you know what?

It's worth all the shit
that hasn't worked,

to see one of them,
just one, pull through.

- Still ironing your own shirts,
aren't you?

- You know,
I know what you're thinking.

Tim loves his lost causes.

- I love when you read my mind.

Do Poet got the cure,

- Homey took a rain check.

I ain't need that shit, cuz.

I mean, I was close, man,
but then I said,

"Don't numb yourself.
Feel it."

- Are you fucking with me?
You're fucking with me, right?

- No, it's the tits
that's fucking with you.



- "Once again,
with all due respect, Imam,

"we are concerned
with who you choose

to spend your time with."

Am I close?

I thought so.

- With all
Omar White's put you through

in this so-called sponsorship,

now you two are buddy-buddy?

- Yes, 'cause the alternative
is repugnant to me.

- Meaning?

- There's been a largely unknown

but disgusting stain
upon our faith,

and it's an issue that I--
I've ignored

in my teachings to you.

Despite the Koran's
forbiddance of slavery,

there's an evil tradition
which continues to this day.

Our Islamic brothers
of the north,

they capture
our African brothers

of the south,
all in the name of Allah,

to Islamicize people
who look like you and me.

But we Muslims in America,
we turn a blind eye to that

because it doesn't fit
the neat little package

of white Christians
enslaving blacks.

[gate buzzes distantly]

I finally learned
that in a sense,

I was capturing people
to our faith

to serve my own needs.

- You consider
your attempts at conversion

a form of enslavement?

- Yes,

to the degree
that it has helped me

maintain my self-image,

and sometimes that degree
has been a significant degree.

Then there's Adebisi.

He's a black African man
who mocked and defied everything

I wanted a black man to be.

The spirit of Adebisi
did not bleed into me.

That's voodoo.

It didn't make me
a violent man.

I am a violent man,
like anyone else.

Failing to win him over,
I got rid of him.

If we,
as blacks and as Muslims,

are truly gonna fight
for freedom...

Omar White should be allowed
to be who he is...

And I should be allowed
to be who I am.

So I thank Allah

for the so-called sponsorship

that he has put me through.

- Prisoner #97R492.

James Robson.

Convicted November 7th, 1997.

Murder in the first degree.


Sentence: life.

Up for parole in 25 years.

- Not much of a meal there.

- Yeah, nothing cold or crunchy.

- Why, are you on a diet?

- 'Cause it hurts, dipshit.
Do I look fat to you?

God damn it.

Suddenly, ice cream, croutons--

it's like
getting your gums raked.

What the fuck is that?

- They're probably recessive.

My old man had bad gums.

- When's the last time
you got a cleaning?

- I don't know,
five or six years.

I hate the fucking dentist.

- Don't fuck around
with your mouth.

My old man didn't deal,

his mouth ended up
a train wreck.

- If I was you,
I'd see Dr. Faraj.

You don't want to be slurpin'
turkey milk shakes

in middle age.

- Faraj?

I don't want some sand nigger's
paws probin' my mouth.

- They wear gloves now,
you know,

since AIDS came along.

- Oh.

- Jesus, how long
has it really been?

- Well,
aside from some cavities,

you can see
that 10 and 11 show

significant recession
in the gums--

- Meaning what?

- Meaning
that surgery is recommended,

and I would say sooner
rather than later.

- What kind of fuckin' surgery?

- Well, you have two choices.

The conventional method

is to take palatal tissue

from the roof of your mouth

and graft it to your gums.

- Oh, shit.
That sounds fuckin' painful.

- It is painful.

The alternative is
an acellular dermal graft,

where we use the gum tissue
from a cadaver.

- You're kidding.

Some dead person's
fucking gums in my mouth?

- Well, you can think of it
as an organ donation.

- Sounds fucking creepy.

- Well, the use
of your own fucking tissue

would require a longer
and more painful period

of fucking recovery.

In the end,
your fucking gums would be

healthy either fucking way.

- Are you mocking me, Faraj?

- Fuck, no.

- I don't like your third world
bullshit attitude.

And whatever I decide, Gunga,

I got a thing about needles.

Any anesthesia or whatever,
I want gas first.

- My pleasure, sahib.

- Oh, and one more thing.

Being that I'm Aryan
and you're camel shit,

I'd appreciate it
if you wore two pairs

of those plastic gloves.

You know,
the less contact, the better.

[tense percussive tones]

[Faraj curses indistinctly]

So, what do you think?

- Well, it ain't a pretty set
of options, that's for sure.

- No shit.

Now you see why
I hate the dentist?

- It's not their fault, Robson.

You wait years
between cleanings,

you never floss,
and you brush your teeth

the way
you scratch your scrotum.

- I'm considering
the acellular thing.

- All right, which one's that?

- It's like organ donation.

If I needed a liver,
the donor would be dead, right?

- True,
but you don't need a liver.

We don't see the liver.

- Well, he said it's like
a small piece of tissue.

- Yeah.
- It's, like, right here.

- All right, can we just talk
about something else, please?

- Fuck it.

I'm going graveyard gums.


Holy shit.

Oh, hey, what's up, doc?

Hey, how's this stuff legal?

You know what kind
of killing you'd make

selling it
to all the drug fiends in Oz?

They may have tits,
but you've got pussy.

- What is it
with you Nazis and gas?

- [laughing]

Oh, fuck you!

Hey, I thought I said
to wear two pairs of gloves.

- Open wide.

- No, let me have some more gas.

- You don't need more gas, okay?
- I feel it wearing off.

- Okay, open wide.

You know,
with all your warped ideology,

I bet
you never gave much thought

to why Adolf was so pissed off
at the Jews.

You know, one theory
is that he was traumatized

by the death of his mother.

She died of breast cancer,
and she was in the care

of a Jewish physician, and so,

of course,
the repressed hatred

erupted itself
into the Holocaust.

Now, another theory

is that Hitler's father

was the illegitimate son
of a German woman

and some obscure Jewish man,

and so
Hitler himself had impure blood.

Oh, hey, hey, now,
don't make me slip,

because if I do,
we are both in trouble, hmm?

You know, it's amazing.

We don't even know
where these gums come from.

I mean,
this could be the gums of a kike

or a spic

or even a faggot.

- [grunting]
Fucking faggot.

- I mean, you could be getting

the beautiful gums
of a big black nigger, huh?
