On the Corner

Never in my life have I witnessed that quintessential ghetto scene (and a particular fav of nineties hip hop video directors) of a brother doing pull-ups on a cross light but whatdayaknow today walking down Malcolm X boulevard from an afternoon at the Schomburg and I saw a young brother, hood but immaculately put together, doing street calisthenics with a Newport in hand.

PS-Why aren't there any black people on The Office (the fat black guy in the background doesn't count) I was looking hard for the Indian woman who was in the last episode tonight but she was M.I.A. Is the whitewash part of the joke? The writers and cast directors funny commentary on color free cubicles in the untelevised world?
