- OKAY.

- DIGGIN' YOUR EXCITEMENT, NOAH.

I SEE IT.

NOW, MY BOY, NOAH, HE HAD INSPIRED ME.

BUT HOW DO WE ACTUALLY GET ON THE LIST?

I HEADED DOWN TO D.C. TO FIND OUT

HOW TO GET THIS [bleep] DONE.

AND TO GET ANYTHING DONEIN WASHINGTON,

THERE'S ONE GROUPYOU GOT TO START WITH--

LOBBYISTS.

DAMN.

I'LL TELL YOU WHY I'M HERE.

THIS IS A LITTLE INSANE, BUT IT'S THE REAL THING.

I'M TRYING TO GET THE BLACK MAN

PUT ON THE ENDANGERED SPECIES LIST.

[woman clears throat]

- THOUGH IT SOUNDSA LITTLE CRAZY,

IT'S DEFINITELY NOT THE CRAZIEST THING WE'VE WORKED ON.

WE'VE WORKED ON EVERYTHING FROM PROTECTING CHIMPANZEES

AND BABIES WHO'VE FALLEN DOWN STAIRS, TO--

- THERE'S A LOBBY TO PROTECTBABIES FROM FALLING DOWN STAIRS?

- OH, YOU BETTER BELIEVE IT--- STRONG LOBBY.

- ABSOLUTELY.

STRONG LOBBY.

- [exhales]

SO I'M IN THE RIGHT PLACE?

THEY EXPLAINED THAT IT WOULDN'T BE EASY.

I'D NEED TO TRAVEL THE COUNTRYAND COLLECT SIGNATURES,

GATHER EVIDENCE TO PROVE MY SPECIES IS THREATENED,

AND OUR HABITAT'S AT RISK.

THEN PRESENT MY CASE TO GOVERNMENT OFFICIALS.

BUT WHAT THIS ALL WORTH IT?

- WHAT THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT DOES IS

IT PROHIBITS ANY PERSON FROMHARASSING A PROTECTED SPECIES.

- SO YOU CAN'T HARASSAN ENDANGERED SPECIES?

- EXACTLY, AND SO IF WE WERE ABLE TO GET THE BLACK MAN

LISTED ON THE ENDANGERED SPECIES ACT,

ANY PERSON THAT WANTED TO HARASS A BLACK MAN

WOULD NEED TO OBTAIN A PERMIT IN ADVANCE.

- GOD DAMN! HOOD PERMITS?

AW, THIS [bleep] IS ON!

TIME TO HIT THE ROAD.

FIRST STOP, NEW YORK CITY.
