In the end, they both get assigned to do a video year book for the school year.
When Chris' mom learns Manhattan High does not have a Music Department because of lack of money, she vows to throw a fundraiser at the Anderson home when she had already promised Chris that they would go to a concert on the same evening which makes Chris feel hurt and angry.
But, I’d be remiss if I didn’t acknowledge that there is a certain and specific type of entitlement that exists with (some) White people.
City Guys was mainly centered on its two main characters, Jamal Grant (Wesley Jonathan) and Chris Anderson (Scott Whyte), two teenagers from different backgrounds – Chris coming from a wealthy family, and Jamal coming from a working-class family – who had to stay on the ball while attending Manhattan High School (which was nicknamed in the series as "Manny High") and avoid trouble, while their principal Karen Noble (Marcella Lowery) attempted to keep them in line and out of trouble.All because I said “No.” Which I’m beginning to suspect is the White person’s Candyman. And they can be found in cubicles annoying colleagues with their need to insert and assert their opinions when none have been asked for or needed.Maybe they fear if they hear it five times in the mirror, Nat Turner will appear. Or at coffee shops arguing with cashiers who are merely enforcing a rule posted on the fucking door.Because you could substitute the races and the genders there and still have the same outcome.What happened there might not have been completely race-neutral, but it definitely wasn’t race-dependant.L-Train warns Jamal that he's dead meat if he even thinks about painting over his graffiti.Chris learns about it and proceeds to paint over it.I am just wondering how many other men think like this?For me, it seems plain common sense that, while professional women with masters degrees may be compatible with men in less successful professions, the guy that left school with no qualifications to work in the launderette is highly unlikely to be a good fit.Why he was there, I do not know, as he made it clear that he was not really looking to date anyone.He did however buy me a drink in the bar afterwards and asked me what I thought of the event.
