On the economy.
An older man, Moses Evans, who operates a few shoeshine stands in downtown Minneapolis, was questioned by a reporter from the Southwest Journal concerning his hopes and fears regarding the future. Mr. Evans made this observation:
"In my business, people buy shoes. They're going to have to keep them up, and if they don't keep them up, they're just spending money. See, I'm not feeling any pressure because I'm a poor man, but I do make a living, and I trust God to look after me. I pay my tithes and try to abide by the law. See that's the only thing you can do. You just can't go through this world thinking that you own something... You don't own anything because when you came into this world, you didn't have nothing..."
