  • - I don't represent nothing but Frank Lucas. - You sure?

  • A black businessman like you?

  • You represent progress.

  • The kind of progress that's going to see them lose a lot of money.

  • With you out of the way, everything can return to normal.

  • My man.

  • You know what normal is to me, Richie?

  • I ain't seen normal since I was six years old.

  • Normal is seeing the police right up to my house

  • dragging my little 12-year-old cousin out, tying him to a pole,

  • shoving a shotgun in his mouth so hard they bust his teeth.

  • Then they bust two shotgun shells in his head and knock his fucking head off.

  • That's what normal is to me.

  • I didn't give a fuck about no police then.

  • I don't give a fuck about no police now. Shit.

  • You know what, you can do whatever you want to do.

  • So, it don't mean nothing to me for you to show up tomorrow morning

  • with your head blown off. Do you understand what I'm saying?

  • Yeah, Frank. Get in line.

  • That one stretches around the block, too.

  • All right.

  • What do you want to do?

  • You know what you got to do.

  • What do you want me to do? Snitch, huh?

  • I know you don't want me to give up no cops.

  • What do you want? You want gangsters?

  • Pick one. Jew gangsters? Mick gangsters? Guineas?

  • They've been bleeding Harlem dry since they got off the boat, Richie.

  • I don't give a fuck about no crime figures. You can have them.

  • I'll take them, too.

  • You'll take them, too?

  • No, you didn't. You're talking about police. You want police?

  • You want your own kind?

  • They're not my kind.

  • They're in business with you, Frank. They ain't my kind.

  • They ain't my kind like the Italians are not yours. All right?

  • Huh.

  • What can you promise me, Richie?

  • I can promise you, you lie about one name,

  • you'll never get out of prison.

  • You lie about one dollar, in one offshore account, you'll never get out of prison.

  • Now you can live life rich in jail for the rest of your born days,

  • or be poor outside for some of them.

  • That's what I can promise you.

  • I want them cops, Richie. That's what I want, I want them cops

  • that took that money out of my pockets.

- I don't represent nothing but Frank Lucas. - You sure?
