PRIVATE MITCHELL (CONT'D
You like to read Andre? Well I do me some reading every now and again? I like me some quotes like uh...you ever heard this one? "One should examine oneself for a very long time before thinking of condemning others." Moliere...You want me to explain it? Well it is simple enough I bet, even for you. It all breaks down to Judge not lest ye be Judged and he who is without sin...so on and so forth....Well, I ain't exactly without sin, but I ain't never put no gun in a innocents mouth. But I am betting you done killed yo self a bunch of them Jews, haven't you Andre?
(Examining the German)
I am betting you ain't an innocent man? Now are you? I am even going to say, the fact that I got a wife who loves me and kids who look to me like I am the Christ himself, well that makes me a Hell of a lot better man then you... And gives me a reason to go back home.
(Looks at his hands they tremble)
There be a little blood on these digits now...oh well, we'll just mix it with the bees wax, they'll never know the difference. Beeswax? Don't know what that is? That's the shit we the used to shine shoes. I used to shine shoes, clean houses, pluck chickens, run a jook joint, a card game or two. I could fix everything from your radio to your couch. Carpenter, mechanic. Yeah, yeah...we do get by in the south. Most such as myself. That is what we do. We don't live. We get by. I lived in a state so cruel, I swear on my ant Laurie's best pie, I can't say its name to this day. You hear me Andre? We had us some hard times, before we put all my hustling nickels together and move us out to New Hampshire. And I moved on to the military...which ain't nothing. Now they done moved me on to you and you ain't nothing to me but another hustle Andre. Do me a favor...nah right? Well do yourself a favor...don't be expecting my nigger sympathy...in yo nigger situation. See we is brothers but you can't see that huh? What difference there be, between Rhine Monkey and Porch Monkey? Hitler Nigger...or Nigger, nigger...
(Laughs)
We are the same Andre...in they eyes, they just got different names for it...

A German soldier is sweating intensely, standing in the middle of a hole. he is digging deeper and deeper. Veins popping, breath heaving violently. he is sweating profusely.

(Gradually losing himself)
You ever heard of the gallows? Hmm? Nigger knots, lynching? Well what they do is they beat you, whip you, tie you, some times they cut off your balls and your dick...I am sorry your Dummerchenand then they shove them in your mouth. You don't eat them though
(laughs madly)
they ain't dinner, you understand? They just want to humiliate you, right before they kick a chair from under your half conscious body and you swing, boy do you swing...unless the branch is weak in which case, they just put you back up and you hope the second time, your neck ain't as strong. Booooy there be some thangs in this world...that will make you beg for death. Call its name like it was your best friend...
