What, are you gonna give me some advice? Just say no? Well, forget it! How the fuck are you gonna save me from my life, huh?

Dear Mother, They learn, learn quickly, faster than white troops it seems to me. They are almost grave and sedate under instruction and they restrain themselves. But the moment they are dismissed from drill every tongue is relaxed and every ivory tooth is visible and you would not know from the sound of it that this is an army camp.
