The camera follows a black businessman as he takes a subway train to work. He looks and does as businessmen look and do: Checks his watch, talks on his cellular, dresses sharply... . While on the phone, he notices the camera and attacks it. Gil Scott Heron's voice - over explains: Despite Biznussman's place in society as a professional and the difficulties he faces along the way (some subtle, some not so) he knows what it means to be Black in America; it means he can't fuck around and neither should you.
