Ferguson protesters smash Natalie Dubose: a black female businesswoman

Ferguson - Natalie DuBose Cake Business DestroyedWhat have the Ferguson riots done?

Let’s ask Natalie Dubose.

Her business was mostly wiped out due to the “peaceful” protesters of Ferguson, Missouri.

It was damaged and looted but not burned to the ground.

FERGUSON, Mo. – Natalie Dubose never expected her first few months in business would be so chaotic. A single mother with two children, she finally saved enough money to open a bakery in June.

“I did that because this is the dream that I wanted to achieve. So I’ve invested everything. You can’t walk away from that much of an investment,” Dubose said.

Her life became infinitely more complicated and devastating.

Dubose relies on foot traffic for business. After Michael Brown’s death in August, she said she had no customers for two weeks. Three months later, angry protesters threw a chair through her glass front window after learning Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson would not face criminal charges for Brown’s death.

So here’s a woman whose entire life depends upon the solvency of her small business, damaged by — let there be no mistake — black vandals.  And she is black.

“I’m baking today,” Dubose told CNNMoney, as the sound of broken glass being swept up can be heard over the phone. “We have orders to go out for Thanksgiving. I can’t tell the people — I won’t tell the people — that I’m canceling.”

Like many other small businesses, her bakery Natalie’s Cakes and More was vandalized Monday night in the wake of the grand jury decision not to charge Officer Darren Wilson with killing Michael Brown.

The shop’s main window is “busted out completely. They threw a chair in it to bust it out … It’s a big mess,” said Dubose, who opened Natalie’s Cakes as recently as June.

Despite the mess, however, Dubose says she will continue to bake. She can’t afford to give up now, having invested all she had into a business that was funded through bake sales at flea markets.

“I am a single mom, a mother of two,” she said. “This is everything that I own. I can’t walk away from it. I just got to start up and start baking again.”

And most of the businesses destroyed by Ferguson’s “peaceful protesters” were owned by so-called “minorities.”  That is to say: the melanin count of the protesters and business owners mostly matched.

DeAndre Joshua, 20, was found dead inside of a parked car just hours after a wave of violence and destruction washed over the surrounding St. Louis area. His family says they are positive his death is tied to the demonstrations over a grand jury’s decision not to indict Michael Brown’s killer.

The body of a man found in a parked car, a couple blocks from where Missouri teen Michael Brown was killed in August, has been identified by his heartbroken family, according to local reports.

DeAndre Joshua, 20, was found dead near Ferguson’s Canfield Green Apartments around 9 a.m. Tuesday, following the first wave of violence and destruction that washed over the St. Louis area over a grand jury’s decision not to indict Brown’s killer, USA Today reported.

KTVI reported that the driver’s side window was shot out while a nearby resident claims they overheard four people with guns talking about looting and killing someone Monday night.

Thank you, peaceful Ferguson protesters.
