The clip What Frank represents from American Gangster (2007) with Denzel Washington, Russell Crowe. Powered by: Anyclip. any moment from any film.
Remember those boys? You put them out of business:
I ain't got nothing to do with no Mazzanos.
Mazzanos ain't got nothing to do with me.
They got everything to do with you.
You know why?
Because apart from the fact that they hate you personally,
they hate what you represent.
I don't represent nothing but Frank Lucas.
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.
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.
