    We are seeing a war on small business by the left, part of which was the coronavirus lockdown and part of it the looting and burning of the BLM / ANTIFA riots. It is all part of the agenda of the left which sees business success of minorities as a threat because minorities will then be able to escape being kept on the leftist welfare plantation.

    Now a study by the National Bureau of Economic Research shows that the restrictions of the coronavirus lockdown has destroyed 22% of small businesses overall and 41% of black owned small businesses. In comparison, the recession of 2008 only destroyed 5% of small businesses.

    NC's leftwing governor Roy Cooper is doing his part here in our state to help destroy small business with his unlawful lockdown regime and one man rule, and black owned small businesses are faring worst.

    Commissioner John Rebholz is a Cooper lapdog.
