If my info is inaccurate let me offer my apologies at the on set. Now this may seem like a small thing to some but to those of us in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn we're extremely proud when two young "American Black" men opened the Brooklyn Greenery. It was the most amazing place with the most amazing energy. I never even like smoothies before. This was the first place that I saw people with different disabilities gathering just to talk♿. In a short space it became a neighborhood staple. While this may seem like a small thing, but ask yourself what's next? Brooklyn Greenery was plagued with massive leaks right at the onset. But like most Black Americans, they just bit the bullet, fixed it themselves, and moved on. Now however it is gone beyond a mere Band-Aid. So, remember at the beginning when I apologized? Here's why. I did some research and found out that Adam Mermelstein of Treetop Developer buys two East Flatbush buildings for $25M
A pittance compared to what property goes for in this neighborhood now. The most egregious thing was to tell two Black American men that you didn't want to rent to """American Blacks.""" I guess you forgot when your family came here as immigrants and were spat upon. And one could say that I don't have a dog in this fight. But I do. Because over and over again I've heard and seen everyone benefit from civil rights and inclusion on a consistent basis. All the while spitting on Black Americans while they do the upward Mobility crawl. Calling us lazy, unmotivated, ill mannered, and uneducated. I've watched my family and many others be anything but. So, co-opting a culture and a future is still de rigeuer? Mr. Mermelstein If I am mistaken about Tree Top Developer's ownership of said property, I apologize. However if I am correct I'd love to dig in your family background and find out what manner of thuggery you and yours have committed! And I don't believe in that Christian bullshit where the evil doers pay for what they do. I've seen too many, get away with to much. But I can dream.
We miss you @bkgreenery #560flatbushave #brooklyn #flatbush #blackpower #blackpride #blackexcellnce MY #blackhistory #iamnotyournegro #👊
