“Those two bitches that left, they betta’ learn to sell pussy in Iceland, because if I ever see them again, I’m gonna’ cut their fuckin’ throats… We are family, and that’s how we’re gonna’ stay!” ~ Nichelle Nichols in Truck Turner (1974)

Nichelle Nichols (famous for her role as Lt. Uhura in Gene Roddenberry’s Star Trek) played Dorinda, a female pimp in the Jonathan Kaplan classic blaxploitation film Truck Turner, which starred musician-turned-actor Isaac Hayes. She said this statement to her stable of working girls as a warning to those looking to leave.
