    Most businesses destroyed in ferguson minority owned

    Most Businesses Destroyed in Ferguson Minority Owned

    Most of the damaged businesses were on West Florissant Avenue and included: Walgreens, Little Caesers Pizza, Autozone, Beauty Town, Title Max, Family Dollar Store, and O'Reilly Auto Parts. Small-business owner Natalie Dubose was in tears when she realized her cake store was attacked by vandals.
    Dubose, a mother of two, previously told CNN, "If I can't open my doors every morning, I can't feed my kids in the evening.
    This is part of the stupidity I see. They destroy themselves, because they think looting, burning, maiming people will all help them. I remember after the Rodney King/ LA Riots how people like Jesse Jackson said we needed to understand their rage. No I don't need to understand their rage, they need to understand what a bunch of buffoons they are.....what a bunch of moronic low-lifes they are for doing these things. Maybe there are injustices done by the police, but rioting when they are clearly in the wrong only defeats THEIR argument.

    You're not indicting everyone in Ferguson, right? Hooligans and street gangs never care about their neighborhoods, and every city has enough of them for a good riot.

    Yeah, I've never understood the whole, "We're mad at the police department for racism, so we will.........destroy businesses that are minority owned. DOWN WHITEY!!!!".

    One would think that the knuckleheads who did most of the damage are probably not from Ferguson. That's just a hunch.

    More than half listed: Walgreens, Autozone, and Family Dollar for instance are not franchise and are not owned by minorites. I agree rioting and looting is not the answer and I do not support it, however; that article is based on lies. I do feel sorry for anyone who lost their business but let's not lie that most of these are corportations and not small business owners.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.

    I mean look at this ****! Who do they think they are?



    What color is the firefighter coming to try and put the fire out? Talk to me about racism, because I don't see it here. So it's not rampant racism in Ferguson.

    I am surprised they didn't shoot at the fire responders.

    Who works in those stores? Are you trying to make this point less important that it really is. People need to understand it's wrong even if a millionaire owns it, but it's extra wrong when they hurt there own people. And to try to make this all out as a bunch of lies is a disservice to the point.

    Well, even if you put that into context it still doesn't make sense. Those corporations and businesses had no involvement whatsoever with the Ferguson case. It makes ZERO sense, even in a retaliatory nature, to do that. Also, those workers that work in those stores were probably minorities that have no job now.

    Yeah, young males use this and other things as an excuse to rant, act out, steal, commit violence. Little incentive is needed. The sad thing is the harm that it causes their neighbors, their community, others of their race. And it feeds into a stereotype that young black males are lawless, with no respect for the law, and unreasonable and violent. It does harm all the way around. But the violent ones don't care. It's all about themselves.
