Check out the sign of this street person on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In Red letters, it declares Please Help I will work for a roof, food, and money. So this black dude is begging for help with conditions!!
At first we thought he was rolling his own joints, only to realize they were the colored crayons or pencils of an artist. His limited mental capacity is quite obvious as he must expect that people would trust him enough to let him live and eat with them.
At least he was not aggressive like the Hollywood Dream Tour salesman who would not leave us alone, trying to con us into an overpriced bus ride to view the estates of the rich and famous.
