                       Sir, they treat me right, I treat
                       them right, like I already said I was
                       raised...
                         
                                                  CHIEF BRIDGES

          Mr. Turrentine jumps in, impatient.
                         
                                   MR. TURRENTINE
                       ...What would you do if another Cop
                       called you a Nigger?
                         
                                                  RON STALLWORTH
                       Would that happen...
                         
                                   MR. TURRENTINE
                       ...Sheeeeeeettt!!!
          Bridges looks at him. Turrentine waits, Ron doesn't know how
          to respond, finally. Turrentine leans forward.
                         
                                   MR. TURRENTINE (CONT'D)
                       There's never been a Black Cop in
                       this City. If we make you an Officer,
                       you would, in effect, be the Jackie
                       Robinson of the Colorado Springs
                       Police force.
                         
          Mr. Turrentine lets this sink in.
                         
                                   MR. TURRENTINE (CONT'D)
                       And if you know anything about Jackie
                       Robinson you know he had to take a
                       lot of... guff... from his fellow
                       Teammates, from Fans, other Teams,
                       and The Press.

                       I know Jackie's Story, Sir.
                         
                                   MR. TURRENTINE
                       Good. So, knowing that, when someone
                       calls you Nigger will you be able to
                       turn the other Cheek?
                         
          Ron evaluates the hard reality of the question. Decides.

          Ron looks at Chief Bridges.

          60's, White, sits on a stool, reading a Magazine clearly
          looking at a Photo of something good.
          Ron looks at the Photo of the Actress Cybill Shepherd.
                         
                                                  RON STALLWORTH
                       Cybill Shepherd. She was great in The

                                                  RON STALLWORTH
                       She's a very good Actress.
                         
                                                  OFFICER MULANEY
                       Y'know you want some of that.

          A VOICE of UNIFORMED COP WHEATON calls from the other side of
          the Counter.
                         
                                   WHEATON (O.S.)
                       Hey! Anybody in there? Looking for a
                       Toad here.
                         
          Ron walks to the Counter to see The White and sleep-deprived
          Cop impatiently leaning on his elbows.

          Ron pulls up the File for Tippy Birdsong. The Photo shows a
          Black Man in his twenties.

          considering.

                       room.
          Sgt. Trapp reacts knowing Ron shouldn't have said that about
          the Records Room. CHIEF BRIDGES looks at Ron, matter of fact.
                         
                                                  CHIEF BRIDGES

          Chief Bridges walks off without another word. SGT. TRAPP
          gives a knowing look to Ron, who watches them walk away.

          Ron sits up in Bed, excited, thinking about the challenge
          ahead.
                         
          INT. CSPD - NARCOTICS DIVISION - DAY
                         
          Ron, dressed in Bell-Bottoms and a Hip Italian Knit Shirt,
          Marshmallow Shoes steps inside the Narcotics office, which is
          literally The Basement of The Station. He looks around at The
          Area Buzzing with Activity and sees
                         
          ANGLE - UNDERCOVER COPS
                         
          at their desks. Looking less like Cops and more like unkempt
          Hippies or Rock N' Rollers.
                         
          CLOSE - RON

          Flip, late 30's, long hair, looks like anything but a Cop, he
          however is somewhat of a closed-off guy, all business, Ron
          sits across from him. Chief Bridges steps before them.

                       We've got limited time so I'll be
                       quick. That Black Radical Stokely
                       Carmichael is giving a Speech Tonight

          Ron is surprised at this.

                       Carmichael is a former High Muckity-
                       Muck with The Black Panthers and as
                       far as I'm concerned, FBI Director J.
                       Edgar Hoover was dead right when he
                       said The Black Panthers are The
                       Greatest Internal Threat to The
                       Security of these United States. This
                       Carmichael Joker, former Panther or
                       not, they say he's a Damn Good
                       Speaker and we don't want this
                       Carmichael getting into The Minds of
                       the Black People here in Colorado
                       Springs and stirring them up.
                         
          Ron's face cringes at Chief Bridges's words. He steps to Ron.

          Ron stands, his shirt off, as Flip wires a Wireless
          Transmitter and Microphone to his body. Another Narcotics

          Flip pulls his Gun.

          Ron gives Jimmy a wary look speaking to Flip.
                                                  RON STALLWORTH

          Jimmy nods, satisfied. Flip is finished with The Wiring. Ron
          takes a deep breath.

          looks around.
                         
          A Crowded sidewalk overflows into The Street, filling a line

                       Rum and Coke with Lime.
                         
          As Jabbo makes his Drink, something catches Ron's Eye.
          Patrice exits through a door with several Black Bodyguards.
                         
          Ron observes as a Tall figure comes out from Backstage with
          Patrice, ODETTA and HAKEEM. The Tall figure hangs back
          covered by The Bodyguards.
                         
          Ron on his feet, Black Fist in the air with The Crowd.
          Patrice on Stage with Kwame Ture with her Fist raised too.
          The Shouting and Chanting finally cease, as Patrice speaks.
                         
                                                  PATRICE

          PANDEMONIUM! As Kwame Ture walks onto a small raised stage
          with Patrice. The entire place rises to their Feet, Fists
          Raised, Clapping, Shouting "Ungawa Black Power!" Ron watches
          as Patrice and Kwame hug. Patrice sits on Stage with Odetta
          and Hakeem.
                         
          Kwame soaks in the Crowd's reaction, until...
                         
                                                   KWAME TURE
                       Thank you all for coming out tonight,
                       My Beloved Sista's and Brotha's. I

          towering at Six Feet-Four with an infectious smile and
          Flawless Dark Skin, he's oozing Charisma out of every pore.

                       ...I'm here to tell you this evening
                       it is time for you to stop running
                       away from being Black. You are
                       College Students, you should think.
                                   KWAME TURE (CONT'D)
                       It is time for you to understand that
                       you as The growing Intellectuals of
                       this Country, you must define Beauty
                       for Black People, Now that's Black
                       Power.
                         
                                                  BLACK MASS
                       BLACK POWER!!! BLACK POWER!!!
                         
          The Black Students in The Audience are laser focused on him.
                         
                                                  KWAME TURE
                       Is Beauty defined by someone with a
                       Narrow Nose? Thin Lips? White Skin?
                       You ain't got none of that. If your
                       Lips are Thick, Bite them in. Hold
                       your Nose! Don't drink Coffee because
                       it makes you Black!
                         
          The Audience laughs! Loving it.

                       Your Nose is Boss, your Lips are
                       Thick, your skin is Black, you are
                       Black and you are Beautiful!
                         
          Everyone cheers including Ron!

                       We want to be like The White people
                       that oppress us in this Country and
                       since they hate us, we hate
                       ourselves. You dig Tarzan? I remember
                       that when I was a Boy I used to go
                       see Tarzan Movies on Saturdays. I
                       loved me some Jane too. Jane was A
                       Fine White Woman. White Tarzan used
                       to Beat up The Black Natives. I would
                       sit there yelling "Kill The Beasts,
                       Kill The Savages, Kill 'Em!" Actually
                       I was saying: "Kill Me." It was as if
                       a Jewish Boy watched Nazis taking
                       Jews off to Concentration Camps and
                       cheered them on. Today, I want The
                       Chief to beat The Hell out of Tarzan
                       and send him back to The Caves of
                       Europe. But it takes time to become
                       Free of The Lies and their shaming
                       effect on Black Minds. It takes time
                       to reject the most Important Lie:
                       that Black People inherently can't do
                       the same things White People can do
                       unless White People help them.
          The Audience laughing, overwhelmed, shouting back support! A
          ROAR from The Crowd. Ron finds himself clapping along.
                         
                                                     RON STALLWORTH
                          Right on!!! Right On!!!
                         
          Ron looks around at everyone caught up in Kwame's spell.
                         
                                      KWAME TURE (CONT'D)
                          If a White Man wants to Lynch Me,
                          that's his Problem. If he's got The
                          Power to Lynch Me, that's My Problem.
                          Racism is not a question of Attitude;
                          it's a question of Power.
                         
          Ron is struck by the remark.

                          The vast majority of Negroes in this
                          Country live in Captive Communities
                          and must endure their conditions of
                          Oppression because and only because
                          they are Black and Powerless. Now We
                          are being shot down like Dogs in the
                          streets by White Racist Police. We
                          can no longer accept this Oppression
                          without retribution. The War in
                          Vietnam is Illegal and Immoral. I'd
                          rather see a Brother Kill a Cop than
                          Kill a Vietnamese. At least he's got
                          a reason for Killing The Cop. When
                          you Kill a Vietnamese you're a Hero
                          and you don't even know why you
                          Killed him. At least if you Kill a
                          Cop you're doing it for a reason.

                         with these Last Words. "If I am not

                         when? And if not you, who?" We need
                         an Undying Love for Black People

            Caught up in the moment, Ron gathers himself, as if
            remembering why he is here. Kwame takes Patrice's Hand and

            Patrice stands near him. Kwame pulls her in close, whispers
            something in her ear. She smiles, a bit smitten.
                         
            Ron watches as he finally reaches Kwame, shaking his hand.

                         War between The Black and White Race
                         is inevitable?

            lowers his voice, looking around conspiratorially.

          Patrice's Car is pulled over and a Uniformed Cop gets out his

          Cincer and Sharpe enter Patrice's Car, searching it. Landers

          Landers stares him down for a moment. You think he's gonna
          slug him but he thinks better. The other Cops go through the
          Car searching, throwing things around.

                        I have established contact and
                        created some familiarity with The
                        Klansmen over the phone. I will
                        continue that role but another
                        Officer, a White Officer, will play

                            Don't forget to lose that Star of
                            David around your neck.
                         
               Ron shoots Flip a look.
                         
                                                       RON STALLWORTH
                            You're Jewish?
                         
               EXT. KWIK INN DINER - PARKING LOT - NIGHT
                         
               Ron and Jimmy sit in an Unmarked Car. Several yards away,
               Flip stands in The Lot, leaning up against a Pick Up Truck.
                         
             INT. UNMARKED CAR - NIGHT
                         
               Ron watches through Binoculars as a Beat-Up, Ivory-colored
               Pickup Truck pulls in.
                         
               BINOCULARS POV: from the Truck's license plate to a
               Confederate Flag Bumper Sticker that reads WHITE POWER.
                         
                                                          RON STALLWORTH
                            It's Walter.
               Ron writes down The Truck's Plate
                         
          Number: CLOSE - KE-4108.

               A White Male, FELIX, 30's, steps out of The Pickup Truck. He
               wears Corduroy Pants, Uncombed Hair to his Neck and a Fu
               Manchu. He pulls on a cigarette.
                         
                                                       FELIX
                            Ron Stallworth?
                                                  FLIP
                       That's me. And you must be Walter.
                         
                                                  FELIX
                       Name's Felix.
                         
                                                  FLIP
                       I was told I'd be meeting with Walter
                       Breachway.
                         
                                                  FELIX
                       Change of plans, Mack. I'm gonna need
                       you to hop in The Pickup.
                         
          Even with his slouched shoulders, Felix towers over Flip.
                         
                                                  FLIP
                       Okay, well how about I just follow
                       you...
                         
                                                  FELIX
                       ...No Can Do. You come with me.
                       Security.
                         
          INT. UNMARKED CAR - NIGHT
                         
          Ron and Jimmy each wear Headphones, listening in. They look
          at each other...
                         
          EXT. KWIK INN DINER - PARKING LOT - NIGHT
                         
          Flip glances in the direction of Ron's Car, then pulls open
          the rusty passenger door of Felix's Pickup.
                         
          EXT. HIGHWAY - NIGHT
                         
          The Pickup flies past. Ron and Jimmy are behind and gaining.
                         
          INT. FELIX'S TRUCK - NIGHT
                         
          Felix adjusts his Rear-View Mirror. Eyes it suspiciously.
                         
                                                  FELIX
                       You for The White Race, Ron?
                         
                                                  FLIP
                       Hell Yeah!!! Been having some trouble
                       lately with these Local Niggers.
                         
                                                  FELIX
                       Since The Civil War it's always
                       trouble with Niggers.
                       Walter said something about your
                       Sister?
                                                      FLIP
                           Makes me Sick.
                         
          EXT. HIGHWAY - NIGHT
                         
           The Pickup speeds up, increasing the distance between the Two
           vehicles. Ron's car accelerates.
                         
          INT. FELIX'S TRUCK - NIGHT
                         
           Flip eyes Ron's Car in the Side-View mirror.
                         
                                                      FLIP
                           But it's also the, like, camaraderie
                           I'm looking for...with The Klan.
                         
                                                      FELIX
                           Da Fuck did you say?
                         
                                                      FLIP

                                                      FELIX
                           No. The other word.

                                                      FELIX
                           ...Not "The Klan." It's The
                           Organization. The Invisible Empire
                           has managed to stay Invisible for a
                           reason. Do Not Ever Use That Word.
                           You understand?
                         
                                                      FLIP
                           I overstand... Right. The
                           Organization.
                         
           An uncomfortable silence. Felix leers into the Rear-View
           mirror.
                         
                                                      FELIX

                        He sees us. Back Off.
          Ron eases on the Gas.
                         
          INT. FELIX'S TRUCK - NIGHT
                         
          One hand on The Steering Wheel, Felix opens The Glove
          compartment in front of Flip's knees and grabs a Box of
          Ammunition.
                         
                                                   FELIX
                        Let's be ready, case we gotta go and
                        shoot us A Alabama Porch Monkey.
                         
          He tosses The Box onto Flip's lap.
                         
                                                   FELIX (CONT'D)
                        Look under your seat. Pull it out.
                         
                                                   FLIP
                        Pull out what?
                         
          Felix snaps his finger at Flip, who jumps.
                         
                                                   FELIX
                        Under the seat!!!
                         
          Flip reaches to his Feet. Pulls out a SAWED-OFF SHOTGUN.
                         
                                                   FELIX (CONT'D)
                        Load 'er up. One in The Chamber.
                         
          Flip is hesitant.
                         
                                                      FELIX (CONT'D)
                        Load it!!!
                         
          Flip dutifully opens up The Box. Pulls out a Shell. Loads it
          into The Chamber and pulls the action forward.
                         
                                                      FLIP
                        Ready to go.
                         
          Felix eyes The Rear-View Mirror again. Ron's Car has drifted
          much farther back. Felix puffs away at his Cigarette.
                         
                                                   FELIX

          INT. UNMARKED CAR - NIGHT
                         
           Eyeing The Truck, Ron and Jimmy breathe a sigh of relief.

                        Just a Bar.
                         
           Ron drives past the lot.

                                  Probably.

           A Cramped and Unfriendly Dive. LOW-LIFES mill about. The Air
           filled with Dense Smoke. Pool Balls CRACK-SMACK.
                         
           Felix leads Flip to The Bar Area, where WALTER BREACHWAY,
           White Male, 30's, stands. Walter is affable by nature, Short
           and Stocky, with a Crew Cut and small Mustache.
                         
                                                   WALTER
                        Ron. Glad you could make it. Walter
                        Breachway, Chapter President.
                         
           They shake hands.
                         
                                                   FLIP
                        I appreciate you inviting me out.
                         
           Felix lingers like a Bad Smell. Beside him a Drunk Man,
           IVANHOE 20's, gives Flip The Stink Eye.
                         
                                                   WALTER
                        I've been impressed with our phone
                        conversations. I feel you have some
                        fine ideas that could help The Cause.

                        I've had my own share of Run-Ins with
                        Niggers. Matter of fact, it's part of
                        what led me to The Organization.

                         I've got a friend that's up with
                         these Groups. He says they're moving
                         away from the Ole Violent Racist
                         Style. That's what Davis is peddling
                         now, it's become Mainstream.

                         The Klan, always in a three piece
                         suit, he now goes by National
                         Director. He's clearly got his Sights

                         Yeah, I guess they're trying to move
                         away from their History of Selling

                         The idea is under all these issues,
                         everyday Americans can accept it,
                         support it, until eventually, one
                         day, you get somebody in The White
                         House that embodies it.

                         America would never elect somebody
                         like Devin Davis President of the
                         United States of America?
                         
           Sgt. Trapp just stares at Ron for a long moment.

          Connie pulls The Article from her apron. Hands it to Felix.
          Felix eyes it, focused on an image of Kwame and without

          Connie trudges back towards the house without answering.
          Felix hands The Clipping to The Klansmen, who pass it around
          the room. When it reaches Walter, he sets it down.

           Felix opens a Desk Drawer and takes out a POLYGRAPH MACHINE.

                 Felix reaches in and lowers his Arm for him, then slides the

          Flip grabs Felix's pistol and FIRES just as Ron reaches the
          unmarked car. Flip fires again and again emptying the gun!
          Missing on purpose just as Ron reaches The Unmarked car. Ron

                       just another White Kid, didn't even

                         Where'd you find them?
                                                  PATRICE
                       I found this one on my Car. But
                       they're all over The Neighborhood,
                       too.
                         
          Ron looks around seeing Residents and Students holding the
          Flyers, discussing them, some upset, others bewildered.

                                                   RON STALLWORTH

                                                  PATRICE
                       This is intimidation.
                         
                                                  RON STALLWORTH
                       Clearly, this is about the Black
                       Student Union and you.

                       incident with the Police when Brother

                                                  RON STALLWORTH
                       They're trying to get to you, like
                       you said they want to intimidate make
                       themselves feared. If you don't let
                       'em scare you. They got nothing. But
                       keep your eyes open. Be Cool.

                       Maybe the both of you should call The
                       Cops.
                                                       HAKEEM
                            How we know this ain't some of the

                            this Shit!
                         
               Patrice and Ron step away from Odetta and Hakeem. They walk
               and talk.

               A Fleet of Pickups rides uphill. A Flat Bed on the end of The
               Convoy has an Eighteen-Foot Wooden Cross fastened on it.
               A CSPD Patrol Car drives past The Convoy, headed downhill.

               Ivanhoe, riding with Flip, watches The Patrol Car pass in the

               They ride in silence for a moment.

                Flip stops talking. He might've revealed a bit too much.

                The Klansmen dismount and gather around The Flatbed Truck
                carrying the Wooden Cross.
                         
                Another CSPD Patrol Car appears. It passes by, not slowing.

                Felix turns and catches Flip's eye. It almost seems as if
                he's staring directly at Flip...

               It's late. Ron's alone on the phone in mid-conversation. It
               is intercut with Devin Davis speaking on the sofa in his

                            people, but My family had a Colored
                            Housekeeper growing up. Her name was
                            Pinky. She was probably the closest
                            Woman to me other than Mother.

                            I don't and The Organization doesn't
                            either.
                         
               Ron gives a "This Is Crazy!" Look.

                            That's what Pinky would say, she had
                            no problem with Segregation because
                            she wanted to be with her own kind.

                            She won an Oscar for Best Supporting

                            That's right. When she passed away it
                            was like we lost one of the Family.

                          can get real close to you and when

                          from us. I must of been Six or Seven.

                          Me and Butter Biscuit played together
                          everyday. One day My Father came home
                          early from work and told me I
                          couldn't play with him anymore
                          because I was White and Butter
                          Biscuit was a Nigger.

               INTERCUT RON AND SGT. TRAPP WITH DEVIN DAVIS AT HIS DESK:
                         
                                                       DEVIN DAVIS
                            I'm eager to meet you too, Ron.
                         
               Ron and Sgt. Trapp make eye contact. Sgt. Trapp nods, a laugh
               threatening to spring out of his Face.
                         
                                                       RON STALLWORTH
                            Say, Mr. Davis... I just have to ask.
                            Aren't you ever concerned about some
                            Smart-Aleck Negro calling you and
                            pretending to be White?
                         
               Sgt. Trapp covers his Mouth.
                         
                                                       DEVIN DAVIS
                            No, I can always tell when I'm
                            talking to a Negro.
                         
                                                         RON STALLWORTH
                            How so?
                                                  DEVIN DAVIS
                       Take you, for example. I can tell you
                       are a pure Aryan White Man by the way
                       you pronounce certain words.
                         
          Sgt. Trapp is doubled over now.
                         
                                                  RON STALLWORTH
                       Any examples?
                         
                                                  DEVIN DAVIS
                       Take the word "are". A pure Aryan
                       like you or I would say it
                       correctly... like "are". Negroes
                       pronounce it "are-uh".
                         
                                                  RON STALLWORTH
                       You are so White... Right. I want to
                       thank you for this Lesson because if
                       you had not brought it to my
                       attention, I would never have noticed
                       the difference between how We talk
                       and how Negroes talk.
                         
          Sgt. Trapp is laughing so hard he is shaking violently. He
          shakes his head as if to implore Ron to stop.
                         
                                   RON STALLWORTH (CONT'D)
                       From now on I'm going to pay close
                       attention to my Telephone
                       conversations so I can make sure I'm
                       not talking to one of dem' Sneaky
                       Coloreds.
                         
          Ron cups The Receiver, looks at Sgt. Trapp, whispers.
                         
                                   RON STALLWORTH (CONT'D)

          Sgt. Trapp gets up and bumbles away. Ron speaks into The
                         PHONE:

                       I would love to continue this
                       conversation when you are in Colorado
                       Springs. Beautiful here, Sir. God's

                       That's what I've heard, Ron. You have
                       a nice day.

                       America.
                Ron hangs up, laughing. He calls to Sgt. Trapp:
                         
                                         RON STALLWORTH (CONT'D)

                Just then-- The Undercover Phone rings. Ron hesitates. It's
                strange timing. He picks up.
                         
                                           RON STALLWORTH (CONT'D)

                Ron quickly cups The Receiver.

                Flip looks down at a Steel Door built into The Ground, its
                latch left open. He looks around. Paranoid.

                Flip enters The Short Stairwell, steps to The Cement Floor.

                The Room is Tight. Military Outfits hang from The Wall,
                surrounding The Group of Klansmen, who sit on Milk Crates. In
                the corner, a Sniper Rifle rests on a swivel near Boxes of
                Canned Goods and Stacked Cots.
                         
                Flip finds an empty Crate, Squats.
                         
                Felix stands underneath a single hanging Light-Bulb.

          .45 caliber and hands it to Flip.

          Felix sits up, reflecting, proud and determined.

                He sees something. On his Desk. A Simple Note:

                Ron's Car is parked, and another Car drives up and parks
                across from him.

                AGENT Y - (40's) in a Suit - gets out the car and Ron follows
                suit.

          Agent Y shows Ron a folder and runs his Finger down The List
          and suddenly stops. He then continues going down The List,
          then stops again. He pulls out a Small Ledger and makes a
          note.

          Agent Y lets this sink in. Even Ron is surprised by this.

          Agent Y slips Ron a folder full of Papers.

          Ron flips through the Papers. Various documents about The
          History of The Colorado Klan.
          Agent Y takes a thoughtful pause.

          Agent Y rises to his feet. Ron rises as well.

                       Because we never had this
                       conversation.
                         
          Agent Y drives off.

                       on the front porch, back porch, side
                       wall, doesn't matter. It just has to
                       be against the building. You can
                       plant it anywhere. There's enough C4

          Ivanhoe laughs, liking that. Walker carefully removes another
          Smaller Bomb from the bag. He can hold it in one hand.

          Connie puts the C-4, Smaller Bomb and Detonator into her
          Pocketbook. Ivanhoe reaches for it.

          EXT. ANTLERS HOTEL - DAY
                         
          Ron still in plain clothes parks his unmarked car in the lot
          of The Luxurious Antlers Hotel on South Cascade Ave.
                         
          He walks toward the entrance, where the Six Bikers stand
          around Davis' Sedan. The Bikers all look up simultaneously.
                         
                                                  RON STALLWORTH
                       I'm Mr. Davis' Security Detail.
                         
          They look at each other, then back at Ron. They say nothing.
                         
          Just then Davis emerges from The Hotel, wearing a neatly
          pressed Suit and Tie. He nods to the Bikers, then looks up at
          the Plainclothes Black Detective in front of him.
                         
          Ron steps forward, extending a hand.
                         
                                   RON STALLWORTH (CONT'D)
                       Hello, Mr. Davis. I'm a Detective
                       from The Colorado Springs Police
                       Department and I will be acting as
                       your Bodyguard today.
                         
          Davis smiles and shakes Ron's hand.
                                                  DEVIN DAVIS
                       Detective, pleased to meet you.
                         
                                                  RON STALLWORTH
                       As you may know, there have been
                       several credible Threats against your
                       Well-Being.
                         
          Walter and Ivanhoe walk outside The Hotel seeing Ron standing
          with Devin Davis.
                         
                                                  WALTER
                       Da Heck's going on here?
                                                  DEVIN DAVIS
                       There are Threats on my Life. This
                       Detective has been assigned as my
                       Bodyguard.
                         
          Walter and Ivanhoe smile broadly. Ron changes his VOICE
          slightly for Walter.
                         
                                                  RON STALLWORTH
                       Let me be clear, Mr. Davis: I do not
                       agree with your Philosophies. However
                       I am a Professional and I will do
                       everything within my means and beyond
                       to keep you safe.
                         
          Davis stands there a moment, processing all of this. Maybe
          he's heard that voice somewhere before? Then...
                         
                                                  DEVIN DAVIS
                       I appreciate your Professionalism.

          BIKERS that look like Hells Angels Types lead a Motorcade
          through the streets of Colorado Springs with Two Vans behind
          them.

          The Van pulls up and the Door is RIPPED open. Walter stands
          there, big smile on his face as Flip steps out.
                         
                                                  WALTER
                       Sorry for the Extra Security today.
                       Can't be too careful. Ready to meet
                       Mr. Davis?
                         
          INT. STEAKHOUSE - DAY
                         
          Flip follows Walter to a large Table near the back, where
          Felix, Ivanhoe and other Chapter Members stand around
          chatting with Devin Davis.
          Everyone stands in line in awe of The Grand Wizard to shake
          his hand. Davis turns and smiles as Flip approaches.
                         
                                                  WALTER
                       Mr. Davis, our newest recruit, Ron
                       Stallworth.
                         
          He shakes both of their Hands.
                         
                                                  DEVIN DAVIS
                       Ron, it's my pleasure to finally meet
                       you in person.
                         
          Both of Davis' hands clasp Flip's hand tight.
                         
                                                     FLIP
                       You as well.
                         
          Davis pauses a moment as he processes Flip's voice. Is this
          the same person he's been talking to on the phone?
                         
          Davis SLAPS Flip on the back appearing like best buddies. Ron
          stands in the Background.

          Walter stands between Flip and Davis as he holds Court.
                         
          Flip, Ivanhoe, Walter, Felix and Connie all drink it up
          totally impressed and star struck. Felix does a double take
          when he sees Ron.
                         
                                                  FELIX

          The Mood now Solemn and Deadly Serious and Religious. Flip
          and Ten other INDUCTEES stand in a cramped waiting room. They
          all wear Klan robes and White Lone Ranger Masks. The other
          inductees are grinning ear to ear, like Kids on Early Morning
          Christmas.
          JESSE NAYYAR steps in. Jesse is 35, Clean-Shaven, in shape
          underneath his flowing Klan robe.

                       Sacred Ceremony.
                         
          Jesse stands tall, beaming. Flip wipes his brow.
                         
                                                  JESSE (CONT'D)

                       to join the most Sacred Brotherhood
                       this Nation has ever seen.
                         
          Jesse allows for a dramatic pause. Davis addresses them.

          Ron sees a Black WAITER, JOSH, 50, and nears him, whispering
          in his ear. The Waiter looks around and gestures for Ron to
          follow him. Ron follows Josh up a back set of stairs. He
          points to a door and Ron SLAPS twenty dollars in his hand.
          Josh leaves. Ron goes through the door.

          Flip can see Davis now, illuminated by Candles, wearing his
          own Ceremonial Robe. His Hood does not cover his Face.

          Flip looks around and the Room comes into Focus: He is
          surrounded, on all sides, by Klansmen wearing Robes and Hoods
          and holding Candles. It's a Surreal, Hair-Raising experience.

                       Jesse Washington was a friend of

                       They claim Jesse Raped and Murdered a
                       White Woman named Lucy Fryer. They
                       put Jesse on Trial and he was

          seat. She leans down giving Felix a peck on his Cheek.
                         
          CLOSE - RON'S POV - CONNIE
                         
          leaves the banquet hall and Ron watches her go out the front
          door. Felix goes over to Davis, leaning down to greet him.
                         
                                                   FELIX
                        I just want to say how Honored I am
                        to be in your presence.
                         
          They shake hands in the traditional Klan manner.
                                     DEVIN DAVIS
          The Honor is Mine.
          CLOSE - WALKER
                         
          walks through the maze of tables with his second helping of
          food when he notices...
                         
          CLOSE - WALKER'S POV - FLIP
                         
          talking at the table with Walter and Davis. Flip is very
          chummy laughing and telling stories with them like old
          friends.
                         
          Walker stares hard at Flip like he's trying to place him. He
          sits next to Felix, still staring at Flip. Walker nods to
          himself, speaking quietly.
                         
                                                     WALKER
                       He's a Cop.
                         
                                                     FELIX
                       Who?
                         
                                                     WALKER
                       That Guy.
                         
          Felix looks at Flip.
                         
                                                     FELIX
                       Ron?
                         
                                                  WALKER
                       No, the other Guy.
                         
          Walker is talking about Flip too.
                         
                                                     FELIX
                       Ron's a Cop?
                         
                                                  WALKER
                       No, his name is Phillip but his
                       nickname is Flip.
                         
                                                  FELIX
                       Who's Phillip?
                         
          Walker looks at Flip as he speaks to Davis.
                         
                                                  WALKER
                       Who's Ron, that's Phillip.
                         
                                                  FELIX
                       What the Fuck are you talking about?
                                                  WALKER
                       That guy was the Cop that sent me
                       away to Prison for Armed Fucking
                       Robbery.
                         
          Flip eating with Davis.
                                   WALKER (O.S.)
                       His name is Phillip... Phillip
                       Zimmerman.
                         
          Felix is shocked.
                         
                                                  FELIX
                       What!
                         
                                                  WALKER
                       Yeah, he's a Fuckin' Pig.
                         
                                                  FELIX
                       What's his name?
                         
                                                  WALKER
                       Phillip Zimmerman.
                         
                                                  FELIX
                       Isn't that a Jew name?
                         
                                                  WALKER
                       I don't know... probably.
                         
                                                  FELIX
                       So Ron Stallworth is a Fucking Jew.
                         
                                                  WALKER
                       Coulda' been worse.
                         
          Felix looks at him.
                         
                                                  WALKER (CONT'D)
                       Coulda' been a Nigger.
                         
          Felix thinks to himself, then looks over at
                         
                         RON
                         
          who is standing not far away from Devin Davis. Ron is
                         WATCHING
                         
                         FELIX
                         
          and Walker focusing on Flip. The Two, Ron and Felix, share a
          long uncomfortable stare. Felix has figured it all out.
                         
                                                  FELIX
                       He's a Nigger.
                         
          Walker turns to Felix.
                         
                                                  FELIX (CONT'D)
                       That Cop guarding Davis. Zimmerman is
                       using his name.
                                                    WALKER
                         Let's tell Davis.
                         
          Walker starts to rise, Felix lowers him back.
                         
                                                    FELIX
                         Not now, I'll find the moment.
                         
          Felix turns to Connie, whispering, they all then rise. Ron
          knows something is askew. He gives Flip a look. Flip sees it
          as Ron walks over to Davis.
                         
                                                    RON STALLWORTH
                         ...Mr. Davis, a favor to ask.
                         Nobody's gonna believe me when I tell
                         them I was your Bodyguard.
                         
          Ron holds up a Polaroid Camera.
                         
                                     RON STALLWORTH (CONT'D)
                         Care to take a Photo with me?
                         
          Davis laughs, looking around the table.
                         
                                                    DEVIN DAVIS
                         I don't see any harm in that. Hey
                         Jesse... why don't you get in here
                         too?
                         
          Jesse Nayyar, equally amused, walks over. Flip is already out
          of his Seat, walking to Ron. Ron glances over seeing
                         
          FELIX, WALKER AND CONNIE AT THE BACK DOOR (RON'S POV)
                         
          Connie has her purse and Walker hands her a gym bag. Felix
          pecks her on the lips. She exits the steakhouse with the gym
          bag.
                         
          CLOSE - RON
                         
          then turns to Flip.
                         
                                                    RON STALLWORTH
                         You mind taking it, Sir?
                         
          ANGLE - ROOM
                         
          Flip nods and Ron hands him The Polaroid Camera.
                         
          Ron walks back and stands in between Davis, THE GRAND WIZARD
          and Jesse, THE GRAND DRAGON.
                                                  RON (CONT'D)
                       One... Two... Three!
                         
          Right as the Camera Flashes, Ron drapes his arms around both
          Davis and Jesse, pulling them in real close. The Polaroid
          clicks and spits out the Photo instantly.
                         
          Davis is startled for a brief second... then it all happens
          in a FLASH.
                         
          Davis and Ron spring toward Flip, each making a Mad Dash for
          the Photo. Ron grabs it first. Davis lunges to grab the Photo
          from Ron's hands but Ron yanks it away. Davis is up in Ron's
          Face.
                         
                                                  DEVIN DAVIS
                       Nigger, What the Fuck did you just
                       do?
                         
                                                  RON STALLWORTH
                       If you lay one Finger on me, I'll
                       arrest you for assaulting a Police
                       Officer. That's worth about Five
                       Years in Prison. Try me. See if I'm
                       playing.
                         
          The Room falls into Dead Silence. Klansmen mouths hang open,
          watching their Leaders threatened by a DETECTIVE NIGGER.
          Davis gives Ron the most vicious look imaginable.
                         
          Ron stares back. It's a SHOWDOWN. Several Men in the Room
          have their hands at their Waists, seconds away from drawing
          their Guns.
                         
          Ron can do only one thing: he smiles.
                         
                                   RON STALLWORTH (CONT'D)

          Davis shakes his Head in Disgust.
                         
          Bikers and others surround Ron. Flip looks wary knowing
          something is up. He gets in Ron's face, threatening.
                         
                                                  FLIP
                       Boy you get ya' ass out NOW!
                         
          Ron breaks off from the roomful of disdain cutting through
          the watching Crowd pushing past Bodies heading toward the
          front door. Suddenly, Ron's arm is grabbed...
                         
                                   FELIX (O.S.)

               Ron turns finding Felix holding his arm.

               Ron JERKS his arm away heading to the exit.

               Walker and Felix sit on both sides of Flip. Flip grins at
               them, then does a double take at Walker, who stares at him.
                         
                                                       FELIX

               Flip stares at Walker playing it totally cool.

                                                       WALKER
                            No, I went to a Private School in

                              Matter a fact it is.
                         
               Walker looks at Flip, who says nothing.
                         
                                                         FELIX
                              You know something about that. Don't
                              you, Flip?
                         
               Felix's eyes burn into Flip, who doesn't flinch. Suddenly,
               Josh the Waiter interrupts.
                         
                                                         JOSH
                              There's an emergency phone call in
                              the Lobby for a -- Felix Kendrickson.
                         
               Felix rises.
                         
                                                         FELIX
                              Don't say another word.
                              I'll be right back. Flip.
                         
               Felix walks off. Walker watches him leave turning to Flip,
               who plays it cool. A confused Davis observes it all.

          waves to Walker. Ivanhoe sees Felix and rushes to join them.

                       ago. It's an inside joke.

          Ron zooms up to Freedom House SCREECHING to a stop! The event
          is over. There are a few people outside conversing after the
          event. Ron sees Hakeem and jumps out of the car.

            Connie drives up. She sits there for a long moment staring at
            Patrice's House. Connie decides. She gets out of the Car
            carrying her purse. She looks like an Avon lady coming to
            call. She walks up on Patrice's porch looking around. She
                           CAREFULLY SETS

            down by a pillar on the porch and slowly removes the Bomb.
            She opens the mailbox to place the Bomb. She nervously flips

            the Bomb back inside while looking at Patrice and Odetta
            getting out of the Car and getting Groceries from the trunk.
                         
            Patrice talks to Odetta, not noticing Connie. Connie quickly
            leaves the porch striding to her car sweating, crazy nervous.
            Patrice and Odetta talk, entering her House.

            Connie tries to nonchalantly head back to her vehicle.
                         
            Ron jumps out the car yelling!

            Connie breaks into a run. Ron dashes after her grabbing her
            as she opens the Pick Up Truck door.

          The Two fight as she SCREAMS, scratching and clawing at Ron.
          The Fight moves from the Pick Up Truck as he throws her down
          on the grass of a near by lawn, subduing the SCREAMING
          Connie.

          him. Then looks left finding OFFICER MYERS, also White, 30's,
          has his revolver aimed at him.

          With his hands raised you can see Ron's shoulder holster and
          38 CALIBER SNUB-NOSE. Officer Myers sees it!

          Ron goes to reach in his pocket but the two Officers make
          aggressive moves with their Guns! Ron catches himself! He
          doesn't want to get shot! He decides to just tell them.

          Ron slowly lowers down to his knees and the two Cops push him
          face down on the street! Felix drives up with Ivanhoe and

          Ron, Flip, and Sgt. Trapp sit opposite Chief Bridges.
                         
                                                   CHIEF BRIDGES
                        Again, I can't commend you enough for
                        what you've achieved. You know there
                        was not a Single Cross Burning the
                        entire time you were involved?

          Sgt. Trapp shakes his head, resigned.
                                                  RON STALLWORTH
                       What does that mean?
                         
          Ron and Flip look at each other, stunned.

                       Inflation... I wish I had a choice.
                       My hands are tied. Besides, it looks
                       like there are no longer any tangible
                       Threats...

                       We prefer that The Public never knew
                       about this Investigation.
                         
          Ron and Flip are heated. Sgt. Trapp is silent but gutted.

          Ron reflects as he feeds Investigation documents in a
          Shredder. The documents shred into pieces. Just then, the
          Undercover Phone Line rings on Ron's desk.
                         
          Ron stares at the Phone, still ringing. He looks at The
          Documents in his hand, about to feed them into The Shredder.
          Ron stops. Throws The Documents in a Folder. Sweeps some
          Folders into his Briefcase. Leaves as The Phone still rings.

          Face Bright Pink. Flip is laughing hard in the background.

          out revealing a list of Racial epitaphs he had written down
