The movies have done a good job of showing us what young men do to make money in NY. I had a chance to meet a group of hilarious street dancers/acrobats.
Then they started dancing to rap and making jokes like “dont be scared, we are only black,” and “if you give us the money we will be running so fast and there is no cop chasing us,” and my best was “you need to give us the money to keep us away from robbing your homes.” Very on point because the gathering was mainly white 🙂
Then they started doing their thing and from the look of things, flipping around was easy and a sure way of raising money. They also got the excited boys to queue as part of the action. Talk of innovation 🙂
