    Community activist? Father figure? Puh-leeeze.

    How does he pay his bills?
    Notice that he included his phone number in the video. His "merch" is prominent in the video. Given sufficient, successful attention devoted to creating a brand, sales of t-shirts and other disposable crap can begin to pay the bills. Once someone has become famous for being famous (famous enough to be sought out for featuring in a short documentary film, for example), appearance fees can begin to come in. And you know there are people who look on him as either homeless or "doing good and should be supported" who simply give him cash.

    I'm not saying he's not on the dole. I'm simply saying that, like youtube personalities and some other folks who have hooked into the new media in creative ways, he may have diverse revenue streams that are not obvious to old farts like me.

    I didn't notice any of that Ben, lol....
    Phone number is at 01:23. He's wearing his branded t-shirts in most of the video. It's entirely possible that that smartphone on his bicep is the locus of a thriving social-media-based business. Listen to the guy talk; he's smart enough to make his efforts pay.

    And it's also possible that he makes his money in nefarious ways. I really have no idea.
