Storyline

Michael writes a letter to the paper complaining about the conditions in their building. However, Florida and James aren't too happy due to the fact that it might get them kicked out of their apartment. To make matters worse, a representative from the housing authority is sent over to discuss the matter and things get really interesting when the man's cab driver runs off to avoid being caught in the middle of a rumble. Now he gets a first hand view of life in the ghetto by having dinner with the Evans family. Written by Brian Washington <Sargebri@att.net>

The militant midget strikes again
30 December 2016 | by See all my reviews

"The Visitor" finds everyone bummed out over walking up 17 flights with the elevator out of commission. James is the first to notice that the heat also isn't working, but no coffee without water: "you know, I had better conditions than this in Korea!" JJ figures that it won't be long before they'll be forced to use the toilet at the gas station! Michael's letter of complaint about the terrible conditions in the projects gets published in the Chicago Defender, earning a visit from the housing authority's William Stonehurst (Richard B. Shull). 17 flights means the poor man is already out of breath before a single word is spoken! He suggests that Michael be more discreet in the future, but can't get away with the Dukes and Warlords on the loose. An evening dining with the Evans has Stonehurst impressed by their perseverance, vowing to get through all the paperwork to get things done.
