Most folks never heard of John Brown.
If they have,
all they know is he was hung for being a traitor
and stirring up all kinds of trouble and starting the Civil War.
Some Black folks love him,
'cause they think trouble needed to be stirred.
But some Black folks hate him
for thinking he was some sort of bullshit white savior.
Me? I knew him.
I loved the man.
The day he was hung
there was only one silver lining:
I could finally stop wearing that dress.
What a beautiful country.
I met the Old Man two years earlier, in Bleeding, Kansas.
This was before I fell in love with a prostitute,
got drunk with Frederick Douglass,
before we damn near started the Civil War.
Least, that's how I remembers it.
My pa was a barber by trade without full satisfaction.
So he preached the gospel and offered hot shaves
and trims at Dutch Henry's Tavern.
Dutch's served as a post office,
way station, rumor mill...
and gin house for the Missouri Red Shirts
who came across the Kansas border to drink and throw cards
and holler to the moon about niggers taking over the world
and the white man's constitutional rights being throwed in the shitter.
告诉我 朋友 你信《圣经》吗
Tell me, friend, are you a Bible man?
Well, boss, I surely is.
Know all kinds of Bible verses.
Tell me, which books of the Bible do you favor?
I favors them all, but mostly I like...
Ahab, Trotter and
Pontiff the Emperor.
Now, I don't recollect that I know those,
and I've read the Bible through and through.
Well, I-I don't knows them exact.
不过 陌生人 不论你知道哪一段
Whatever verses you know, stranger,
I-I'd be pleased to hear 'em.
Well, here's one for you.
"The Lord puts forth His hand
and touches all evil and kills it."
Oh, that warms my soul. Give me more.
"Put a Christian in the presence of sin
and he will leap at its throat."
Come on, stranger.
Yeah, "Free the slave from the tyranny of sin."
"Scatter the sinners as stubble
so that the slave shall forever be free."
对 先生 我仿佛见到了上帝
Yes, sir. I feel like I done meet the Lord.
You look familiar.
What's your name?
What you doing around these parts?
Just looking for work.
Well, I got some wood out back.
Give you 50 cents to chop, half a day.
No, well, how about a dollar, then? Dollar.
That's a lot of money.
I am sharing the holy word with a brother Christian.
Why don't you mind your marbles, friend,
and saw your own wood?
Lest the Lord see you as a fat sow and a laggard.
Only a white-livered, tit-squeezing Yankee
would talk like that.
Get down off that chair.
Fetch the Bible.
I'm going to make you swear on this Bible,
that you is for slavery and the U.S. Constitution.
If you do that, you can walk out of here none the worse.
If you is a lying, blue-bellied free stater,
I'm gonna bust you across the head so hard with this pistol,
yellow will come out of your ears.
put your hand on that.
What is your name?
I thought you said your name was Shubel Morgan.
Isaac's me middle name.
How many names you got?
How many do I need?
Why, Dutch, that looks like Old John Brown.
I believe that is John Brown.
Is that true?
Is what true?
Is you Old Man Brown?
Did I say that I was?
So you ain't him?
I am the child of my Maker.
Will you stop shitting around, you goddamn potato head?
Old Man Brown. Is you him or not?
You bite your tongue when you swear about our Maker,
lest by the power of His Holy Grace,
I be commanded
to deliver holy redemption on His behalf.
And that pistol you're holding -won't be worth a cent.
Cut the jitter--
For the Lord will lift it out of your hand!
Cut the jitter!
Tell me your name, goddamn it!
Don't swear God's name again!
I will swear his cock-dragging name whenever I goddamn please!
And then I will shove it down your shit-eating Yankee throat,
you goddamn nigger turned inside out!
Oh, son of a...
My name is Osawatomie John Brown,
captain of the Pottawatomie Rifles,
and I am here with the Lord's blessing
to free every colored person in this territory,
and any man that stands against me will eat lead grape and powder!
I will take you and your octoroon daughter to freedom
in the name of the King of Zion.
Massa, my Henry ain't a...
