Check them out

On my way to work, some day last week.
It's about 7 AM and I'm stopped at a red light, right at the corner of 14th and W street. There is a large parking lot filled with people. They're all seated against the wall to try to catch a bit of the shade on this already hot day. They're all black. All ages.
I see a white guy coming in the lot with a small white van. He goes from group to group and just point to some people while walking. About half a dozen people follow him to the van. From the atmosphere of the scene, I was half-expecting him to check out their teeth.

I could be wrong, but I think the lot at 14th & W is one of those places day-laborers congregate in hopes that a prospective employer will choose them for a job.
