Walk is symbolized by the White Man.
Don’t walk is symbolized by the Colored Field Hand.
When you have the White Man, you can make forward progress.
But when you have the colored field hand, all progress must be halted.
You must stand there and hang out on the street corner like something an “ethnic” “urban” type of person might do for fun.
Or you can cheat and walk anyway! Those are the choices for the Colored Field Hand–stagnation or cheating.
But with the White Man, the streets of the wealthiest city in the world are yours!
