Danny Vinyard:
Hate is baggage. Life’s too short to be pissed off all the time. It’s just not worth it.

Davina Vinyard:
When was the last time you were actually able to see your feet?

Danny Vinyard:
So I guess this is where I tell you what I learned – my conclusion, right? Well, my conclusion is: Hate is baggage. Life’s too short to be pissed off all the time. It’s just not worth it. Derek says it’s always good to end a paper with a quote. He says someone else has already said it best. So if you can’t top it, steal from them and go out strong. So I picked a guy I thought you’d like. ‘We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.’

Derek Vinyard:
I’m not. I’m lucky. I feel lucky because it’s wrong, Danny. It’s wrong and it was eating me up, it was going to kill me. And I kept asking myself all the time, how did I buy into this shit? It was because I was pissed off, and nothing I ever did ever took that feeling away. I killed two guys, Danny, I killed them. And it didn’t make me feel any different. It just got me more lost and I’m tired of being pissed off, Danny. I’m just tired of it.

Danny Vinyard:
Hate is baggage. Life’s too short to be pissed off all the time.

Bob Sweeney:
There was a moment when I used to blame everything and everyone for all the pain and suffering and vile things that happened to me, that I saw happen to my people. Used to blame everybody. Blamed white people, blamed society, blamed God. I didn’t get any answers ’cause I was asking the wrong questions. You have to ask the right questions.

Derek Vinyard:
Like what?

Bob Sweeney:
Has anything you’ve done made your life better?

Danny Vinyard:
We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained, it must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.

Danny Vinyard:
Hate is baggage. Life’s too short to be pissed off all the time. It’s just not worth it.

American History X Quotes Ending

Doris Vinyard:
I’m ashamed that you came out of my body.

Cameron:
This is stupid. Go cool off, get laid, do something, come back when you’re ready to talk.

Derek Vinyard:
Yeah, but it really doesn’t matter if I do does it, ’cause you got a whole crop already lined up you f***in’ chicken hawk!

Cameron:
Excuse me?

Derek Vinyard:
You prey on people Cam. I lost three years of my life for your f***in’ phony cause but I’m onto you know you f***in’ snake.

Cameron:
Hey watch it Derek, this isn’t some f***in’ country club where you can walk in and outta here…

Derek Vinyard:
Shut up! Shut Up! Shut the f*** up, I came here for one reason, to tell you that I’m out, and Danny’s out too and if you come near him again, I’ll f***in’ kill you.

Bob Sweeney:
Has anything you’ve done made your life better?

Derek Vinyard:
One in every three black males is in some phase of the correctional system. Is that a coincidence or do these people have, you know, like a racial commitment to crime?

Doris Vinyard:
You think you’re the only one doin’ time, Derek? You think you’re here all alone? You think I’m not in here with you?

The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be, by the better angels of our nature.’

Derek Vinyard:
We’re so hung up on this notion that we have some obligation to help the struggling black man, you know. Cut him some slack until he can overcome these historical injustices. It’s crap. I mean, Christ, Lincoln freed the slaves, like, what? 130 years ago. How long does it take to get your act together?

Lamont:
I’m the most dangerous man in this prison. You know why? ‘Cause I control the underwear.

Danny Vinyard:
We are not enemies, but friends. We must not be enemies. Though passion may have strained we must not break our bonds of affection. The mystic chords of memory will swell when again touched, as surely they will be by the better angels of our nature.

Danny Vinyard:
I believe in death, destruction, chaos filth and greed.

Derek Vinyard:
Every night, thousands of these parasites stream across the border like some f***in’ pinata exploded.

Derek Vinyard:
Don’t laugh! There’s nothin’ funny goin’ on here!

Murray:
What are you doing Derek? This is your family.

Derek Vinyard:
Right, my family so you know what? I don’t give two shits about you or anyone else or what they think. You’re not a part of it and you never will be.

Murray:
That has nothing to do with it! ~~~ American History X Quotes

Derek Vinyard:
Oh it doesn’t? You don’t think I see what you’re trying to do here? You think I’m gonna sit here and smile while some f***in’ kike tries to f*** my mother? It’s never gonna happen Murray, f***in’ forget it, not on my watch, not while I’m still in this family. I will f***in’ cut your Shylock nose off and stick it up your ass before I let that happen. Coming here and poison my family’s dinner with your Jewish, N*gger-lovin’, hippie bullshit. F*** you! F*** you! Yeah, walk out, a**hole, f***in’ Cabala reading motherf***er. Get the f*** out of my house.

Derek Vinyard:
N*gger, you just f***ed with the wrong bull. You should’ve learned your lesson on the f***in’ basketball court. But you f***in’ monkey’s never get the message. My father gave me that truck motherf***er! You ever shoot at fireman? You come here and shoot at my family? I’m gonna teach you a real lesson now motherf***er. Put your f***in’ mouth on the curb.

Lawrence:
Come on man.

Derek Vinyard:
Put it on the curb right now!

Danny Vinyard:
Derek, no!

Derek Vinyard:
Now say good night.

I’m sorry, Derek. I’m sorry that happened to you. ~~~ American History X Quotes

Derek Vinyard:
I’m not. I’m lucky. I feel lucky because it’s wrong, Danny. It’s wrong and it was eating me up, it was going to kill me. And I kept asking myself all the time, how did I buy into this sh*t?

It just got me more lost and I’m tired of being pissed off, Danny. I’m just tired of it.

Derek Vinyard:
D’you see this?

Derek Vinyard:
This means “Not welcome”.

Lamont:
Just remember, in here, you the nigga. Not me.

Lamont:
‘Sup, man? You getting outta here? Well, c’mon man! What the f*** you waiting on?

Derek Vinyard:
Yeah, you know, I got this funny feeling.

Lamont:
Oh yeah? What’s that? ~~~ American History X Quotes

Derek Vinyard:
I’m thinking the only reason I’m getting outta here in one piece is you.

Lamont:
C’mon man! Get the f*** outta here, man! You think I’m gonna put my neck on the line for some crazy-ass peckerwood?

Derek Vinyard:
Yeah, right. Stupid.

Derek Vinyard:
That’s what I thought. I owe you, man.

Lamont:
C’mon man, it’s a piece of cake, a’ight? You just take it easy on the brothers, a’ight? The *brothers*!

Murray:
I don’t have a personal problem with him!

Bob Sweeney:
Don’t insult my intelligence, Murray! You hate this child, and I think I know why.

Murray:
So I went out with his mother a few times. That was three years ago…it was nothing.

Bob Sweeney:
Nothing. Really?

Murray:
That paper, Bob–it’s a travesty. Arguing for Hitler as a civil rights hero? You’ve got to draw the line.

Bob Sweeney:
You know, Murray, you actually brought this upon yourself. You said the paper could be on any book that related to the struggle for human rights…in plain English. I am not disputing that the child is confused, and harbors some sick ideas, but I am not ready to give up on him yet.

Murray:
His brother probably put him up to it.

Bob Sweeney:
I guarantee you 100% his brother did not put him up to this.

Murray:
Whatever…I find that hard to believe. ~~~ American History X Quotes

Reporter:
Earlier today, L.A. County firefighter Dennis Vinyard was shot and killed battling a blaze at a suspected Compton drug den. We’re at the Vinyard home now, and Lieutenant Vinyard’s oldest son Derek has agreed to talk with us for a moment. Derek, if you could come down here, please, for a second. Look, I know this is tough, but how do you feel right now?

Derek Vineyard:
(younger, wearing a Venice Beach High Basketball jersey) How do you think I feel? I think it’s typical.

Reporter:
Typical how?

Derek Vinyard:
Well, this country’s becoming a haven for criminals, so what do you expect? Decent hard-working Americans like my dad are getting rubbed out by social parasites.

Reporter:
Parasites?

Derek Vinyard:
Blacks, browns, yellows, whatever.

Reporter:
I don’t understand. You think maybe your father’s murder was race-related?

Derek Vinyard:
Yeah, it’s race-related! Every problem in this country is race-related! Not just crime…it’s immigration, AIDS, welfare! Those are problems of the black community, the Hispanic community, the Asian community! They’re not white problems!

Reporter:
Aren’t those really issues that deal more with poverty?

Derek Vinyard:
No! They’re not products of their environments! That’s crap! Minorities don’t give two shits about this country! They come here to exploit it, not to embrace it!

Reporter:
What does this have to do with the ~~~ American History X Quotes

Derek Vinyard:
Millions of white Europeans came here and flourished within a generation! What the f*** is the matter with these people? They have to go around…shooting at firemen!

Reporter:
What does this have to do with the murder of your father?

Derek Vinyard:
Because my father was murdered doing his job! Putting out a fire in a f***ing n*gger neighborhood he shouldn’t have given a sh*t about! He got shot by a f***ing drug dealer who probably still collects a welfare check!

Doris Vinyard:
Honey, that’s enough.

Lawrence:
Who are you calling a boy, motherf***er, huh?!

Seth:
Lucky motherf***er! I’m through monkeying around with your f***in’ ass!

Lawrence:
Pale, pasty, pastrami eating cracker motherf***er! A hundred bucks say I make you my b*tch.

Seth:
Hear that? He’s trying to make ends meet for his cut in welfare. You’re f***ing on!

Danny Vinyard:
It’s 8-6, Seth.

Seth:
Danny, when I want your f***ing opinion, I’ll ask for it!

American History X Derek Vinyard Quotes

There are a lot of movies like this now but this movie is great. All the dialogues in this movie are great. ~~~ American History X Quotes

Dennis Vinyard:
So what is this “Native Son”?

Derek Vinyard:
It’s this book about this black guy. We’re doing this whole black literature unit.

Dennis Vinyard:
What, is it Black History Month?

Derek Vinyard:
No, it’s just this guy Sweeney, you know? It’s part of the course now.

Dennis Vinyard:
Yeah…whatever. It’s everywhere I look now.

Derek Vinyard:
What?

Dennis Vinyard:
This is “affirmative action.”

Doris Vinyard:
Honey, a few new books don’t qualify as affirmative black action.

Dennis Vinyard:
Read the book, ace the guy’s test…just don’t swallow everything he feeds you whole. Just because you see it on the evening news…

Derek Vinyard:
I know, but what?

Dennis Vinyard:
All this stuff about making everything “equal…” it’s not that simple. Now you’ve got this book “Native Son.” What happened to the other books in the course? They’re not good anymore because Mr. Two Ph. Ds says so? Now you got to trade great books for black books? Does that make sense? You gotta question these things, Der. You gotta look at the whole picture. We’re talking about books…but we’re also talking about my job. I’ve got two black guys on my squad now who got their job over a couple of white guys who actually scored higher on the test. Does that make sense? Everything’s “equal” now, but I’ve got two guys watching my back…responsible for my life…who aren’t as good. They only got the job because they were black, not because they were the best.

Derek Vinyard:
That sucks.

Dennis Vinyard:
Yeah, is that what America’s about? No, America’s about the best man for the job. You do your best, you get the job. This affirmative action crap–I don’t know what that’s about. There’s like some hidden agenda or something going on. Do you see what I’m saying?

Derek Vinyard:
Yeah, I do. I didn’t think about it like that…This Sweeney guy though just comes on so strong. It’s hard not to listen to him. I guess some of what he says though, it’s kind of–

Dennis Vinyard:
It’s bullshit.

Derek Vinyard:
Yeah…yeah, maybe.

Dennis Vinyard:
No. It’s n*gger bullshit. You see that, don’t you?

Derek Vinyard:
Yeah.

Dennis Vinyard:
You got to watch out for that.

Derek Vinyard:
Yeah. No, I get what you’re saying. I will.

Dennis Vinyard:
Good boy. I’m proud of you.

Bob Sweeney:
There was a moment..like this. when I used to blame everything and everyone… for all the pain and suffering and vile things that happened to me, that I saw happen to my people. Used to blame everybody. Blamed white people, blamed society, blamed God. I didn’t get any answers ’cause I was asking the wrong questions. You have to ask the right questions.

Derek Vinyard:
Like what?

Bob Sweeney:
Has anything you’ve done made your life better?

Derek Vinyard:
We, as society, grand cops a certain amount of authority to make those calls, because we acknowledge that their job is difficult and dangerous! Very few people respect that and respect that authority.

Davina:
Look who’s talking about respect here, Mr. Junior KKK.

Derek Vinyard:
What? I didn’t say I respect the laws. I acknowledge a cop’s authority.

Derek Vinyard:
If he had, though? Come on, think about it. If that f***ing monkey had run some kid over, everybody would have a very different opinion of this whole matter! They’d be focused on Rodney King and not on these officers. But instead, he just attacked a few cops. And so suddenly, it’s Hands Across America for this f***ing total son of a b*tch. I mean, it blows my mind. We’re so hung up on this notion that we have some obligation to help this struggling black man, cut him some slack until he can overcome these historical injustices. It’s crap. This stuff just perpetuates it and all this liberal nonsense. Everyone’s looking the other way while our country rots from the inside out. I mean, Christ, Lincoln freed the slaves, in like; 130 years ago. How long does it take to get your act together?

Murray:
Well, Jews have been persecuted for over 5,000 years. Are you saying it’s wrong to feel sensitive about anti-Semitism?

Stacey:
Oh, forget that. I’m with you. I’m with you all the way, baby. I’m so sick of these liberal hypocrites.

Davina:
Oh, here we go again. I love this part. This is great.

Stacey:
Well, look at the way how they scapegoated Chief Gates. You tell me to think they would’ve come down that hard on black Willie Williams? No way. That videotape was a set-up to get rid of Gates!

Davina:
Can I please be excused?

Doris Vinyard:
Yesโ€ฆ

Derek Vinyard:
No! No, you cannot. Don’t interrupt.

Stacey:
Excuse me, I was talking. I listened to you.

Derek Vinyard:
Don’t interrupt her!

Davina:
Who the hell do you think you are?

Derek Vinyard:
She’s right in the middle of making the point!

Davina:
Who the hell do you think you are?ย 

Derek Vinyard:
Hey! Davina, sit down. No, sit down!

Derek Vinyard:
No, sit your ass down! No, sit down. Shut your mouth. No. Sit down, shut your mouth and give my girlfriend some respect!

Murray:
Derek, what are you trying to prove?

Derek Vinyard:
Murray, stay out of it! [pulls Davina’s hair to stop her from leaving] Come here! Hey, what do you think you’re going?

Doris Vinyard:
No!!!!

Murray:
Derek, let her go! Derek, let her go!

Derek Vinyard:
You need to learn some f***ing manners, Davina. Shut your f***ing mouth!

Danny Vinyard:
Derek! Stop!

Murray:
She can’t breathe!

Doris Vinyard:
Letโ€ฆ herโ€ฆ GO!!!

Derek Vinyard:
Are you gonna apologize? Are you?!?

Davina:
You’re a f***ing a**hole!

Doris Vinyard:
I hate you!

Murray:
What are you doing Derek? This is your family.

Derek Vinyard:
Right, my family, my family, so you know what? I don’t give two shits about you or anybody else or what they think. You’re not a part of it and you never will be.

Murray:
That has nothing to do with it!

Derek Vinyard:
Oh it doesn’t? You don’t think I see what you’re trying to do here? You think I’m gonna sit here and smile while some f***ing kike tries to f*** my mother? It’s never gonna happen Murray, f***ing forget it, not on my watch, not while I’m still in this family. I will f***ing cut your Shylock nose off and stick it up your ass before I let that happen. Coming here and poison my family’s dinner with your Jewish, N*gger-loving, hippie bullshit. F*** you! F*** you! Yeah, walk out, a**hole, f***ing Cabala reading motherf***er. Get the f*** out of my house.[flashes swastica tattoo] see this, this means not welcome.

Derek Vinyard:
You disgust me! Bring him to our table! How could you bring him to my father’s table? How could you go from Dad to that? Aren’t you ashamed?

Doris Vinyard:
I’m ashamed that you came out of my body!!!!

Derek Vinyard:
N*gger, you just f***ed with the wrong bull. C’MERE!

Lawrence:
Get off!

Derek Vinyard:
You should’ve learned your place on the f***in’ basketball court! But you f***in’ monkeys never get the message! My father gave me that truck, you motherf***er! You ever shoot at fireman?! You come here and shoot at my family?! I’m gonna teach you a real lesson now, motherf***er. Put your f***in’ mouth on the curb!

Lawrence:
Come on, man…

Derek Vinyard:
Put it on the curb right now! That’s it.

Danny Vinyard:
Derek, no! NOOO!!!

Derek Vinyard:
Now say good night!

Derek:
F***er!ย 

Danny Vinyard:
Look, Sweeney, did you bring me here to talk about Derek? Because what happened to him has nothing to do with me.

Bob Sweeney:
Everything you do right now has something to do with Derek.

Danny Vinyard:
He’s one of those proud-to-be-n*gger people, I hate those guys.

Cameron:
Now wait a minute Danny, he’s not proud, no he’s a manipulative self-righteous Uncle Tom. He’s trying to make you feel guilty about writing about Adolf Hitler. Some n*gger, some spic writes about Martin Luther King, or f***in Caesar commie Chavez gets a pat on the head.
