is forced to intervene in an illegal dockworkers strike

This episode establishes Sinclair as a Problem Solver
--he finds a clever and humorous solution to the strike, and he finds a clever and humorous solution to the dispute between Londo and G'Kar]. JMS has cited this as one of the main reasons Sinclair was replaced--he was typecast
as "The Guy Who Goes Around Finding Clever And Humorous Solutions To Problems", and that's not the direction JMS wanted the character to go.
The name of the episode is a reference to a saying of Malcolm X
