(Tea Party 247) – What started out as reasonable protest over the death of Minneapolis man George Floyd, a black man who died as a result of being pinned to the ground by Officer Derek Chauvin, has devolved into utter chaos and senseless violence and destruction. Despite the officer being fired immediately and arrested Friday, violence, looting, and destruction have continued.
This kind of “protesting” only further hurts already hurting communities and the recent riots are no exception. Rioters in Minneapolis vandalized and ransacked a bar owned by a black former firefighter Wednesday night.
The National Review reports:
Korboi Balla had invested his life savings in the bar and was planning to open it before the coronavirus pandemic caused mass business closures. Balla then moved the opening date to June 1, when Minnesota plans to lift restrictions on restaurants, but the bar has since been wracked and looted in the riots, CBS first reported.
CBS was filming a segment at the bar when looters entered through the back of the establishment to try to steal Balla’s safe.
“I don’t know what we’re going to do,” Balla said in an interview. “It hurts, man. It’s not fair, it’s not right. We’ve been working so hard for this place. It’s not just for me, it’s for my family.”
Balla’s wife Tywanna said that the bar was not insured.
“Yes people are mad and upset, I get that and I understand the protest, I’m hearing people say F*** the business they have insurance WELL WE DON’T AND THIS IS ALL OUT OF POCKET!!!” Tywanna wrote in a Facebook post. “Let someone come run in your home and loot for the cause then and let’s see you be ok with it!”

How does destroying the livelihood of other black people vindicate the unfair death of another? It doesn’t. It just creates more black victims in already struggling communities. Not only had Balla diligently saved his money for years and years in order to see his dream come to fruition, he is a former firefighter. A man who had previously served and protected his community and this is the thanks he gets?
These “protestors” do not care about “justice.” All they care about is destruction and devastation. If they did care about justice they would most definitely not be victimizing black business owners in an attempt to bring attention to the unfair police treatment of another black man. There is absolutely no logic in that.
Not only have they hurt a fellow member of their community, they’ve made their own neighborhood a very undesirable place to do business in the future.
Summit News points out:
The clip once again emphasizes how rioters are burning down their own community and destroying the lives of other black people, supposedly in pursuit of justice.
In reality, they’ve trashed their own neighborhood and made it highly unlikely that any new businesses will want to set up shop to serve the community there ever again.
Some business owners placed signs that said “minority owned” in an attempt to deter looters, but that obviously didn’t work for this bar owner.
