SECONDS: Quentin Tarantino glorifies violence but doesn't seem to have experienced true violence.
DANZIG: Is he glorifying violence or just commenting on the world today? We've had wars forever, intrigue forever, people being framed for stuff they didn't do since the dawn of time. We've had genocide since the Christians were murdered by the Romans. We've had slavery forever. It kills me when everyone acts like Black people were the only slaves. Tell that to the Spanish people down in Mexico who were made slaves. Tell that to the families in Germany and England who were all slaves at one time. Tell that to the people in England who had to give up their wives the first night of their wedding because they weren't people, just part of the land, and the king could have any wife he wanted on the first night of her marriage.
SECONDS: There's Black-on-Black slavery in. Africa, today.
DANZIG: Reverend Farrakhan now finally admits that Black brothers in Africa sold Black brothers to Dutch traders. We all knew that but now he's admitting it. You can't rewrite history; everybody's family at one time was a slave. If there was a war and you were captured, you were a slave. The Romans had Greek slaves and the Greeks weren't Black. Historically, slavery is not just Black people in the United States. There's slavery going on right now with Asians and I don't see everyone freaking out. There's slavery where young blonde girls go over to Japan and are never heard of again. If we really want to comment on slavery, let's not just go back to the 1800s. Someone might say I'm being insensitive but I'm being realistic about it. It's an insensitive subject.
SECONDS: You've raised the question of what's wrong with being proud to be White.
DANZIG: Why would I not be proud of being White? "Look what all the White people have done --" Well, look what all the Black people have done. Look what all the Mexican people have done. Every race has a ahadaw east over it at some point in history. What race am I? I'm a mutt, I'm a mix of a bunch of different stuff and so is everybody else. There is no "original" race anymore. As far as me being an Aryan or a racist, anyone who knows me knows that's bullshit. But if there's a race war, what I am going to do? Twenty Black guys with guns aren't going to care that I'm not with anybody.
SECONDS: Is that in, our future?
DANZIG: Sure. Civil wars like that have always happened and are always going to happen. As much as you'd like to change it, the world will always take you back to what it is. You're just a speck on this planet and as the world evolves, it repeats itself.
SECONDS: There are cleansing processes.
DANZIG: Nature has its own cleansing processes -- AIDS may be one of them. Ebola, all these different things, nature controls what happens on this planet. The world always has its way of clarifying things.
SECONDS: If you stand for anything, you're considered a racist.
DANZIG: They can suck my dick and die. There's so many double standards. If you're proud and White, all of a sudden you're racist That's not the case and anyone with half a brain knows that. Unfortunately, we live in a world where a lot of people don't have half a brain. People try to acquiesce to certain groups and then that becomes a reverse inequality.
SECONDS: The ultimate racism is a White person saying to a Black person, "Hey man, you've got so much soul," and patting them on the back.
DANZIG: What is Black? To be honest, Black people aren't black. We're all different shades of brown. Calling yourself Black and calling somebody White has already set up a division. So don't moan about the division later, okay? As far as Black people talking White and White people talking Black, that's bullshit. English is English and different communities have different slang. In German and Spanish, there's different dialects. You're a product of where you grew up.
SECONDS: I feel we've reached a point in society where
DANZIG: -- people think too much.
SECONDS: The racists aren't the problem anymore; it's the virulent anti-racists who cause trouble.
DANZIG: I'm going to say something very controversial: if you are African-American and you don't want to live by White people, that should be your choice. Where I grew up, there were areas White people weren't allowed to go in. If you did, you'd get your ass kicked or killed. The flipside of that is why shouldn't there be areas a Black person can't go? If a White person doesn't want to live with Black people, that's their decision. This is America; do what you want to do. The problem is that most people in this country aren't secure with themselves as people. Reverend Farrakhan would like to see Blacks and Whites separated. Fine, because the people that don't want to be separated will say,'You go do what you want to do and I'11 stay here. It might be better off, because we have these people here, those people there, and then all the people that want to be together.
SECONDS: We teach everyone to love each other and maybe we're being disingenuous; maybe it's okay to hate. Why can't you dislike someone?
DANZIG: Maybe a Black guy breaks into my house, I catch him, he goes to jail. I'm not going to distrust all Black people because of that. If a White person broke in my house, would I hate all White people? No. But there are people who do. I'm just being logical about the whole situation and sometimes that's insensitive to people. I'm not saying I have all the answers, but I do have answers. I know in Idaho the Aryan Nation tried to form their own county. The problem was they tried to secede from the United States. But I don't see a problem setting up a town of people who all believe the same stuff. They're complaining that they have all these guns but everybody has guns. In L.A., the gangs have more guns than the police. Why isn't there a big National Guard raid on every gang house? Well, then who would sell the drugs for the government?
