Frasi Lenny Bruce

„Are there any niggers here tonight? Could you turn on the house lights, please, and could the waiters and waitresses just stop serving, just for a second? And turn off this spot. Now what did he say? "Are there any niggers here tonight?" I know there's one nigger, because I see him back there working. Let's see, there's two niggers. And between those two niggers sits a kike. And there's another kike— that's two kikes and three niggers. And there's a spic. Right? Hmm? There's another spic. Ooh, there's a wop; there's a polack; and, oh, a couple of greaseballs. And there's three lace-curtain Irish micks. And there's one, hip, thick, hunky, funky, boogie. Boogie boogie. Mm-hmm. I got three kikes here, do I hear five kikes? I got five kikes, do I hear six spics, I got six spics, do I hear seven niggers? I got seven niggers. Sold American. I pass with seven niggers, six spics, five micks, four kikes, three guineas, and one wop. Well, I was just trying to make a point, and that is that it's the suppression of the word that gives it the power, the violence, the viciousness. Dig: if President Kennedy would just go on television, and say, "I would like to introduce you to all the niggers in my cabinet," and if he'd just say "nigger nigger nigger nigger nigger" to every nigger he saw, "boogie boogie boogie boogie boogie," "nigger nigger nigger nigger nigger" 'til nigger didn't mean anything anymore, then you could never make some six-year-old black kid cry because somebody called him a nigger at school.“

From Julian Barry's screenplay for "Lenny" can be seen/heard in Lenny Bruce: Swear to tell the truth 1998 http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0175844/

„Clean to you, schmuck, but dirty to the Latins!“

—  Lenny Bruce
Context: You can't put tits and ass on the marquee!... Why not?... Because it's dirty and vulgar, that's why not!... Titties are dirty and vulgar?... Okay, we'll compromise. How about Latin? Gluteus maximus, pectoralis majors nightly... That's alright, that's clean, class with ass, I'll buy it... Clean to you, schmuck, but dirty to the Latins!
