    Anthony Gatto,you and the young lady that reported this story need to dig deeper.
    we have a problem in this country with black men getting employment.
    look at brooklyn, if you are not some kind of foreigner you are not getting a job unless you know someone.
    now he might be a immigrant/foreigner himself. but might have been having difficulty finding work, especially when you go to a job and not one person speaks the english language.
    look at all the workers, not a black one ion site, people better wake up to what is starting to happen.
