A partial transcript from a very powerful portion of the video, beginning at 3:19:
Elliot: “No. You don’t come back in here until you’ve apologized to every person in this room because you just exercised a freedom that none of these people of color have. When these people of color get tired of racism, they can’t just walk out because there’s no place in this country where they aren’t going to be exposed to racism. They can’t even stay in their own homes and not be exposed to racism if they turn on their television. But you, as a white female, when you get tired of being judged and treated unfairly on the basis of your eye color, you can walk out that door, and you know it won’t happen out there. You exercised a freedom they don’t have. If you’re going to be in here, you’re going to apologize to every black person in this room. And do it now … and every person of color.”
Student: “I’m sorry there’s racism in this country…”
Elliot: “Bullshit! No, you’re not going to say ‘I’m sorry there’s racism.’ You’re going to apologize for what you just did.”
Student: “I will not apologize because it’s not a matter of race always…”

Christmas WIsh List
I know I’m a hard person to shop for, so I decided to make a list but please know that I will be grateful with whatever anyone would buy me for Christmas. These are just things I need/want.
Our vacuum doesn’t work very well I would love a new bad ass one to keep the floor clean especially because we will be having a baby crawling around soon.
We do alot of “Outdoors” stuff and I plan on doing even more once Mandy isn’t preggers anymore. This is stroller will help us be able to enjoy the northwest with little Corin strapped in tight. This Carseat is compatible in case you’re interested in something less expensive to help with the baby.
Fitted Caps are kinda my thing and I’ve wanted a Steelers Hat for some time and my current collection of hats are getting a bit worn from use. This is probably the most selfish thing I have on this list.
I want this Pop-Up tent because I know Mandy would love to sneak away with me and do “Real Camping” where you pack in and pack out this would be perfect for that. I could just keep it in the SUV and be “spontaneous”
Well that’s it folks, but again I will be truly grateful for anything I get this Christmas these are just suggestions of things I need/want.
