What are you gonna eat?

Mule meat make a fine stew.

Sure made a mess of things

this time, Billy.

Ho! Ho!

I want to go.

My wife at a planter's meeting?

You can't.

Then give me

some money then.

You never buy anything.

This time,

spend what I give you.

You can afford to

buy you a pretty thing.

Oh, you go see to

men's business

and leave it to your wife

how frivolous to be.

In the olden days, when the heathens

took over the Promised Land,

the Crusaders wore a big

cross on themselves...

Judge, please,

they were knights

on a war horse.

They scared the living shit

out of those infidels.

All right, shut your fans.

Let the judge talk now.

There is no way

we can negotiate

with the strikers.

They're demanding that we

work them no more

than 12 hours a day.

And no work at all

on Sunday.

Now what's next?

Christmas in July?

Is that all right

with you, Sheriff?

No, sir!

That all right with you?

- No! No!

- No!

Your Honor, uh, we could

just start busting some heads

and fix this real fast.

We all got some Negro-lovin'

white folks

could use

a head-whopping too.

This is not as big a cabin

as you're used to, my boy.

- What've you got there?

- Oh, this is heavy.

Oh, give me that.

Give it here.

- There we go.

- Thank you.

You want some water?


Darlin', heaven's

where you make it.

They ran us out.

Said if we won't chop cotton,

we can't stay in them quarters.

Them cabins weren't fit

for living in no-how.

Besides, back in

slavery days,

the runaway slaves used to hide

in these thickets and get fat.

- Ain't that right, y'all?

- Yeah.

We gonna be all right.

We gonna be

all right.

- Ain't that right, y'all?

- Yes, sir.

Whoa. Whoa.

This your wife and

boy here?

Just on patrol.

Don't want no trouble.

- Let's go.
