WATCH: Black Business Owner Has A Message For BLM Protesters That Smashed And Looted Her Business

This lady exposes the hypocrisy of the “Black Lives Matter” movement.

We’ve watched how protests over the senseless death of a man in Minneapolis have turned into riots in the last few days. There are some people out there willing to exploit the tense situation for their own purposes which include everything from stealing to attempting to start a “revolution” because “Orange Man Bad’ or something.

We’ve got “woke” celebrities, leftist politicians, and their comrades in the Media(D) blue-state bubbles excusing the behavior of rioters because, “property can be replaced, lives cannot.” This is true. Someone’s life is invaluable and can’t be compared to stolen property (even if it’s from a Luis Vuitton store in SoHo,) but a business also represents a life’s work, or lives’ work–sometimes spanning generations.

These riots are causing real harm, and it isn’t just the physical damage done, it’s the human cost that no one in the chattering classes wants to talk about.

One of the casualties of these riots was Valentine Deli Corp, a black-owned and operated business in the Bronx.

An angry employee, who is also a part-owner of the Deli, had a message for the people out there chanting “black lives matter” while smashing businesses and looting. After a long night of cleaning up the mess left by rioters, she had it and went off on one helluva rant.

It’s some powerful stuff!

Here’s a bit of what she said:

The problem that bothers me–you said “black lives matter.” I work here part-time, plus I’m a part-owner of this store. You said “black lives matter”–why don’t you choke me, I”m black? Look what you did to my store. Look! Look what you did to my store.

And it just gets better from there.


That was amazing!

I especially love the part where she says “get a job” if you need money and that businesses are trying to build up the community while rioters are just tearing it down. She’s right.

How can you say that “black lives matter” if you’re destroying property and making life more difficult for people who are black?

This is the kind of person that we need to get the message out there that rioting and looting are not victimless crimes.

Nicole Arbour set up a GoFundMe for this deli if you would like to donate.

ReBuild Valentine Deli Corp

The fundraiser is going really well.

At the time of this writing, 846 people have donated $43,394 to Valentine Deli Corp. Fantastic!

Let’s keep it going.
