    In Knocking the Hustle: Against the Neoliberal Turn in Black Politics, Lester Spence examines the predominance of neoliberalism in Black communities. He challenges policies over the last forty years, which produced profit under the guise of community development. Spence finds that the neoliberal policies have the worse impact on Black communities. This paper will argue that because of the idea of the hustle, charter schools, and Black political actors, urban Black communities remain tied to poverty because neoliberalism deprives dependent communities of resources in the false hope of the private sector or market using their resources to help society.

The first titled “It 's Time,” features a montage of clips of various individuals driving for Uber. The voice over tells the story of…
