    She didn’t rebuild her small business rather be consumed by a larger clinic not in the community. So she is no longer a business owner.

    When Rosa Parks husband’s barbershop was looted in the 1967 Detroit riots which were over police brutality Rosa explained it as “the result of resistance to change that was needed long beforehand.”

    The people who resorted to looting and destruction are opportunists. They did no favors to the movement, and they took attention away from peaceful protesters.

    You were correct the first time. It is to take out the old people because their the only ones who vote and are last population knowable about our history with constitution. Of they get ride of the older people who haven’t been infected with the media 0 privacy,no speech. Once they go, their will be a massive wipe to the whole world on our civil right. To the day we wake up and have no memory of this because that’s how the plugged us all into the matrix with 5 g. Making a man made reality like the Truman show where all are watched all are punished all are one with worship and currency. After the boomers their are no military who has actually seen or faught for world peace. And the existing matter goes away like mandala effect. Buy old world, welcome to new world order. Cant people see theirs all ready a new world order to shut down world wide. A order that shut out humanity and our last freedom before now . Wake up femia was ready for mass deaths since 2016. Mass coffins and quarantine spaces were put all over the world. Now that we’re here after 4 years because things take time. They’re fully prepared to spend all the ones that are the only things left to remind us of what we once were and who we are now. We the people are the ones that change and roll the way that we live our life because that is our God given right

    I rather have looted mansions, not looted small businesses. Also seize the means of production.

    To any of you who think that looting/arson is justified:

    I don’t care about the businesses or the buildings or the material goods. I really don’t. But I DO care about the lives that depend on buildings and businesses. Remember that every action has its consequences.

    Destroy a business: you are likely forcing the owner into bankruptcy in the middle of a recession. And yes, that someone could certainly be Black. Not only that, but all employees of that business will be out of a job – again, in the *middle of a recession*.

    Cause a fire: You are endangering the lives of the people inside. And destroying a place like Wendy’s means that you are putting *essential workers* at risk. We’re talking about taking away the only income for households that barely scrape by.

    Again, I don’t care about the businesses themselves of the material goods themselves. I care about the people who depend on them. If you really believe that Black Lives Matter, as I do, please do not harm the very Black Lives you are trying to protect.

    There are many people in pain in this country, this gives not them right to lute and riot, causing even more pain. I don’t buy your pathetic attempt to excuse what those criminals have done.

    Wow! She is so calm and understanding of her building being destroyed. She doesn’t even mention how much money she lost. It’s a shame on one hand that she felt she had to move, but a blessing for the upgrade. A chance to work where she had been banned! What a sweet thing for Roy to do. Clean up the mess and help get her story out there

    I really wish CNN would conduct interviews like this. “You wrecked you own shit. Admit it!”

    If everyone is like this woman:
    A girl is raped and she forgives the man who raped her because she understands why he did it.
