Bar That Black Minneapolis Firefighter Bought With His Life Savings Destroyed Amid Riots


Violent and chaotic protests in Minneapolis over the death of George Floyd led to the total destruction of a bar owned by Korboi Balla a black former firefighter Wednesday night.

Balla had invested his life savings in the bar and was planning to open after the coronavirus lockdown. The bar has now been wrecked.


Balla’ wife Tywanna posted on Facebook that they did not have insurance.

She wrote:

As we were standing in the front of the restaurant, people where in the back trying to steal the safe! This just happened an hour ago in broad daylight! It’s so easy to say what people should and shouldn’t do until it’s affects you! 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 DONT AND THIS IS ALL OUT OF POCKET!!! Let someone come run in your home and loot for the cause then and let’s see you be ok with it! This is your neighborhood and if you have children you couldn’t even walk them down the street because everything is burning or destroyed. You wouldn’t understand unless you was in this position! Justice for George Floyd but not this kind of justice.

***update: It’s now demolished, the whole building***
