A partial transcript from a very powerful portion of the video, beginning at 3:19:

Elliot: “No. You don't come back in here until you've apologized to every

person in this room because you just exercised a freedom that none of these

people of color have. When these people of color get tired of racism, they

can't just walk out because there's no place in this country where they aren't

going to be exposed to racism. They can't even stay in their own homes and not

be exposed to racism if they turn on their television. But you, as a white

female, when you get tired of being judged and treated unfairly on the basis of

your eye color, you can walk out that door, and you know it won't happen out

there. You exercised a freedom they don't have. If you're going to be in

here, you're going to apologize to every black person in this room. And do it

now ... and every person of color."

Student: “I'm sorry there's racism in this country..."

Elliot: “Bullshit! No, you're not going to say 'I'm sorry there's

racism.' You're going to apologize for what you just did."

Student: “I will not apologize because it's not a matter of race always..."

Elliot: “Out."
