I remember doing janitor work and scrubbing bathrooms nights at P.S. 29 and St. Sylvester's to earn my tuition and keep....I had to do the bathrooms because my co-workers claimed it was "discrimination" to make them do the bathrooms. When I finally learned enough electronics at SICC to work part-time at AAT electronics on Hylan blvd., I thought I had pulled myself up into a skilled trade.

Then Lindsey came along with his "give the underpriviledged a chance" job program (was it called CORE?). My boss had to hire one of these "unfortunates" and I was supposed to teach him the ropes in fixing electronics equipment. The first day in the shop, he sat in a corner reading a comic book and showed no interest in learning. I finally went over to him and asked him to watch me, I would show him some basic techniques. His reply: "F-Y Honky MF, Mayor Lindsey is paying me to be here, so I don't have to work with you". I never talked to him again.

Who knows, with the headstart Lindsey gave him, maybe he turned out to be Jesse Jackson?
