New York City of the economic center of the free world, and this week it is ground zero for more theft by elitists in the government who want something a hard working black man earned.

Stealing is stealing, whether it is by people, banks, or the government. In the case of Carmie Elmore, a man who took all the risks when the city of Harlem left the property he runs to crime and deterioration, this is another case, and finally a legitimate one, of the Man sticking it to a brother because an African-American was actually successful in business.
