"If you don't spend a dollar with me, either you don't have it or you're a hater."
These are the confident words of Bronx resident Alex "Tracks" McFarland, the subject of Bianca Consunji's documentary Sugar Rush Hour. Tracks started selling candy on the subway at the age of 11, and now at 25, makes about $55,000 in cash annually with an upfront and honest sales pitch.
Peanut M&M's are his most coveted product, but Tracks has the market covered, also pushing trail mix bars for those who think they're eating healthy and cookies for customers who claim not to eat candy. This is the mark of an intelligent an experienced businessman.
It has to hurt the pride of some commuters to know that the man in the Foamposites peddling candy on the D train earns more than them, but Tracks has worked hard to rack up that money. Although MTA prohibits his hustle, it's an honest one that allows him to provide for his family.
If you can't respect that, your whole perspective is wack.
