More On "Working For The Man"

I got another real estate gig in a black neighborhood , this time in the Bronx. Trying to populate a huge former housing project, bought out by propellar-heads.

I hate working for money, especially when it's for 'the man. '

What makes money, money?

"To walk in money through the night crowd, protected by money, lulled by money, dulled by money, the crowd itself a money, the breath money, no least single object anywhere that is not money. Money, money everywhere and still not enough! And then no money, or a little money, or less money, or more money but money always money. and if you have money, or you don't have money, it is the money that counts, and money makes money, but what makes money make money? "

Unfortunately we require money to manage our enslavement and see us through from bus stop to bus stop.
A one time Herman Goering chose to remain unemployed and inpecunious rather than wilt ,to daily needs ,and submit to working for "a man" .

But we can't all emulate the affable Herman.

At one point Khallid Muhammad says, "You can't be serious to ask me to give up Africa for the gilded cage called Harlem [...]".

There are two parts to the documentary:
