See, you're a lucky man, my brother.

You work outside-


Wow! Haven't seen her here before.

Anyway, what was I saying?

Oh, yeah, yeah.

You own your own equipment,

at least until the loans are paid off.

You are a man in charge

of his own destiny.

And... now...

you're incorporated.

- For real?


You're lucky you have a lawyer for a

brother to do this stuff for you, you know?

How's it feel?

It feels pretty darn good,

that's how it feels.


I guess we should

celebrate then, huh?

To the businessman.



- Mr. Herrod?


My name is Ray Harris

from the Aiken Standard.

I'm doin' a piece about

the upcoming memorial for Paul Malcolm.

I wanted to get your thoughts-

- I got nothin' to say.

Well, I'd really like

to get your viewpoint for the article.

This is a big event in town.

Well, I don't think

I'm gonna be an honored guest.

Will you answer a few questions about

your investigation of Malcolm's murder?

Didn't nobody answer 'em for me.

How you gonna arrest somebody

for sittin' at a lunch counter?

You know this isn't right.

Since when is being hungry

a crime, Sheriff?

You askin' the wrong

question, Sarah.

What you need to be askin' is what

you gonna do on Judgment Day, Sheriff?

What you gonna say about arrestin'

black folk 'cause they're hungry?

What you gonna say about that?

What you

gonna say, Sheriff?

You can't see what's ahead of you.

Don't hate the sheriff, y'all.

Y'all need to pity him.

'Cause he can't see what's comin'.

- That's right.

And it's gonna roll right over him...

along with everybody else who

don't realize we all the same.

- Mm-hmm.

It's right around the corner,

and it's called "freedom."

Freedom, that's right.

- It belongs to you...

the same as everybody else.
