One of y'all bitches
is gonna fall in your own piss.

I had my wall down with you
last night 'cause you were so...

You were so brilliant
at the eviction defense action.

Wow, um...

Heat of the moment got to us,

but you know, we should
really discuss boundaries...

Yo...

I guess people don't answer
their phones no more, huh?

What happened?

We don't have to do this.
It's only... this is only if you're ready.

Ow...



I... I have something,
I have something I wanna show you.

What is it?

I...

I have this.

Oh.

Come here.

Down here.

This?

Take the rest of your clothes off.

That's not gonna work.

- I've never...
- I know.

I just don't want to hurt you.

Don't worry... you won't.

Oops.

- On my arm?

If I can just get...

- Not on, not my...
- Yeah.

Wait, so if I put my...

- Hold on.
- Okay.

- Is that okay?
- Uh...

Yes. Your legs are tight around my arm,
but it feels good.

Okay.

Are you okay?

You like that shit?

Shut up. Okay, okay...

It's okay.

I think I have a new idea.

Okay. I think you're trying to go...
There.

Okay. Go, go, go as fast as you want.
Okay? You're not gonna hurt me.

Okay, okay.

Go fast. Go fast.

Yeah, yeah.
Girl, you fucking like that?

Wait, um...

I'm not fucking Felix, I'm fucking you.

Okay?

Oh.

Oh. Cool.

Okay, just put me down.

Put me down.
Yeah, slow, yeah, just like that.

Yeah, yeah, just... Yeah.

You're gonna put it near me,
but not in me, yes?

- Not in me, right?
- Okay.

Yeah, just like that.

And then I'm gonna ride it lengthwise
like a balance beam, okay?

- Okay.

Okay, yeah, is that good?

Yeah? Okay. Yeah.

Just wait, wait, please.
Stay with me, just wait a minute.

One more minute.
Stay with me now.

It's okay. No, fuck the lights.
It's okay, keep going.

- All right, okay, okay.

- Yeah, yeah.
- Okay.

Wait, wait.

Raiders...!

No music!

No music!

Scat is dead.

Hey!

Hey, everybody!

Scat is dead.

We're gonna do something.

I need everyone in their phones
and on their contacts right now.

There's a video.

We're going to Krown headquarters
right now, okay?

Sucking you in?

- What?
- Yeah. Your eyes...

Your eyes were sucking me in
and everything else with them.

So, you saw that the first time
you saw me, and you figured...

And I knew.

I knew you were missing
the same puzzle pieces as me.

You keep talking like a poet,
I'll just shut up and listen.

Yeah. You out to lunch, boy.

It's at the same place I eat at.

Flora.

Who's that?

Come on,
don't ghost me, answer my calls.

Dougie told me you're in there.

- You want me to get it?
- No, no. They'll go away.

Fuck this shit.

Remember I told you I got bored easily?

I guess that might be me one day.

I don't think
I'll ever get bored of you.

What?

What is it?

What is it?

Jones.

Hey, look at me, look at me. There we go,
there we go. Hurry up, hurry up!

Um, just make sure
that people get water.

- Man, fuck this!
- Make...

Stop. Fuck all this flowers and posters
and paintings and shit.

Stop, yo, stop!

- You don't even know him, bro!
- Yo, man, maybe he's tryin to...

Scat ain't never talked shit about nobody
that ain't hella deserved that shit.

- You know that.
- I know.

He don't give a fuck
about none of this shit.

If I hadn't have been just...

No, if you hadn't have been dealing
with all of this shit.

You give a fuck about every muthafucka,
except the ones that count, you know that?

It's too soon, Jones, this shit is today.

My nigga is gone, bro.
Get off of me, stop!

Go handle your fans.

- Excuse me. Excuse us.
- Jones? Felix?

Excuse us.

Thank you for being here with me.

What did you expect?
Where else am I gonna be?

Where your ass been?

Jones,
this can't happen, right?

I... ma... I mean, he's human.
They can't just leave somebody to like, die.

- It doesn't make sense.
- Someone needs to get up there now.

- Jones.
- I'mma answer you up there.

My boy Cootie right here just asked

how the fuck could
something like this happen?

Exactly. This wasn't an accident.
It's no accident.

When Krown turns poor people away
to die just so they make a profit.

And the same forces that killed Scat,

are trying to get us too.

Let me break it down a little bit.

There is a phenomenon called
the Crisis of Capitalism.

Under capitalism, businesses
combine labor and materials

to create goods or services for sale.

Each year, they must make more money
than the last to compete

or else be crushed by competitors.

They do this by lowering wages
and raising prices.

Now, those workers have less money
to buy the products

with and the company loses money.

How do they fix that situation?

By again, lowering wages
and raising prices.

It's a downward spiral during which

we have large numbers
of people who can't afford

many of the goods that the
economic system produces.

Private HMO run hospitals
like Krown are no different.

Krown is nothing but a network of boxes

with the purpose of sending cash
to its owners.

To get cash out of those boxes?
They sell health as their product.

We get sold the idea
that hospitals are there

with the primary purpose
of helping people,

but the crisis of capitalism
compels them to raise their prices

while people's overall wages are lowered.

So people can't afford it
and get turned away.

In cases like Scat's, they die.

It's why our developers and real estate
companies have rents go up

as wages go down,
pushing people into the street.

It's why our power company
shuts our lights off regularly,

instead of buying from neighboring regions
or spending money on upgrades.

The power company,
the real estate developers,

and Krown have the same group of owners

who are also investors
in much of the industry in the Bay Area.

Our power comes from the fact

that we are the ones
that create that profit.

All of these problems all have
the same immediate solution.

We shut everything down
and force their hands.

It's all connected,
and that's how we have to fight it.

We give them a choice,
cede to our demands and make less profit,

or we shut you down,
and you make no profit.

- Did you see that?
- Just listen.

We get justice for Scat

by getting justice for us all.

Scat would've wanted that.

Scat would've wanted that, ugh!
Scat would've wanted that, ay!

Jones, Jones!

- What? What was that?
- I was just laying it out clearly.

No, it was like a psychic theater.

The cops brought a noise cannon.

I can't talk about this right now.

Look, I'm glad you're here.

- Just stay close.
- It wasn't just the speech though.

It was... Jones.

This was in Scat's pocket when he died.

It's probably for you.

We have to block Krown headquarters now!

Block the Execs from entering
in the morning and shut it down!

I'm gonna get something for you,
all right?

Watch what I'm gonna have for you, bro.

We wait your revelation.

Lemons to lemonade,
cocaine to crack.

People shouldn't feel...

...like they have a gun pointed
at their head all the time.

I wanna see my name
on the side of a building.

I'mma hook you up, Scat.

Do you have any more of those?

Nah, but I got this.

Hey, watch out!

Jay, Jay, hey, um,
I'm a big fan of all the Cannon Comics.

I'm an upcoming artist,
can you take a look at my portfolio?

Emotion.
There's no emotion in the faces.

Thanks, Jay.

Get your mind right, halfwits.
