What is sampled at the beginning of the Blood of Abraham song "Niggaz n Jewz"?

Is it from a movie? A clip from a movie about guy who doesn't want to stay at a hotel run by Jews?

I don't know either, but I couldn't find it in that link. This one works and it's kind of bumpin'!

The wikipedia entry for Blood of Abraham claims that "its opening sample was an actual recording of the ravings of a Ku Klux Klansman", but they don't cite a source of that. And you've got to sort of wonder how one gets one's hands on such a thing.

I saw that too. But it can't be a spontaneous field recording of a Klansman because it's so stagey.

Yeah, I agree. I don't think anyone has ever actually talked like that.

I'm certain that sample is from a film I was shown in grade school, the year before I was bused. The film was--well, how to describe it? It was one of those films like Smoking Is Bad or Strangers Are Bad shown to kids in public school; this one was probably titled Bigotry And Racism And Prejudice Are Bad.

I've forgotten the actual title of the film, but the sampled clip was from a series of scenes which illustrated the stupidity and evil of bigotry, and the scene in question was a family on vacation looking for a motel. The father angrily stormed out of the motel office, declaring it unsuitable while his wife and son pleaded with him to stop being a bigot.

I later realized we were shown this film to prepare us for our big journey to the Inner City, and I suppose it had the intended effect of reminding us kids that Bigotry And Racism And Prejudice Are Bad, but we already knew that. The film did, however, give us kids a bunch of new swear words and insults, all of which were yelled out the windows on the bus ride home.
