Shooting in Harlem outside the Apollo Theater 
Camera Operator asks a few kids

hey what do ya know about Rubin Carter? 

Have you benefitted at all from 9 years in prison?
has it done anything positive for you? 
camera cuts away before an answer, music blares. 
no time for a circus. 

camera man films a man eating a hamburger outside the apollo.

Camera man tell hamburger eater:
yeah I think he's innocent too, why is he in there? 
Man between bites: 

"I'm not surprised. I'm not looking for justice in this country"

providing its own Law

music says "Permanent Revolution"
and the bourgeoisie hear "Evolution, Progress."

And even if, among the young intellectuals, a few understand it
won't their present impotence
make them see this Liberation as beautiful myth,
instead of their own reality
