More than just buildings…

Rioting has consumed dozens of neighborhoods in small, medium, and large cities across the United States, resulting in the loss of life, livelihoods, and property.

Perhaps nowhere has the damage been more intense and sustained than Minneapolis-St. Paul, where George Floyd died in police custody.


While the vast majority of protesters have remained peaceful, some people feel steps like non-violent protest and political activism have been ineffective and that they have nothing less to lose.

The violence has damaged nearly 500 businesses in the Twin Cities — dozens irreparably. Here are those hardest hit.

Dozens of fast-food restaurants, gas stations, convenience stores, banks, Post Offices, and even schools have sustained varying degrees of damage. By the Star Tribune’s account, nearly 500 have been targeted in Minneapolis-St. Paul so far. We decided to focus on those owned by people living in those two communities.

●Google pay 145$ dependably my last pay check was $8500 working 10 hours out of reliably on the web. My undeniably young family mate has been averaging 16k all through ceaseless months and he works around 24 hours dependably. I can’t trust in howdirect it was once I endeavored it out.This is my basic concern…:)GOOD LUCK .

From the names of the business I don’t think many rich people owned them. A lot of years of hard work went in smoke and most likely the owners won’t rebuild. Another loss to the neighborhood.

I would hope that whoever is in control of the GoFund Me account would spend all that money to the business that we’re ruined.
