John Rawlins ( Morgan Freeman ):

"You're so full of hate you just want to go out and fight everybody. Cause you've been whipped and chased by hounds. Well that might not be living but it sure as hell ain't dying. And dying is what these white boys have been doing for going on three years now. Dying by the thousands, dying for you fool."
