The American Scheme is steeped in, Detroit, culture and legend. I attempted to capture a golden era in Detroit's history before it fades into oblivion. To the good playin, playa's and playette's out there, this one's for you too. I hope my story will inspire others born into hapless situations out of their control to examine the psychological barriers that may be impeding their growth, and an opportunity to live a long and bountiful life. Bless all who are chasing "The American Dream to tread cautiously. You don't wanna' get played by the American scheme.
