A black business owner in Minneapolis wept on camera Friday after rioters destroyed his sports bar into which he had invested his life savings.

Video:

"I don't know what we're going to do," the man cried. "We have worked so hard to get here. So hard."

Update: The man's name is KB Balla and he is a firefighter on the Brooklyn Center Fire Department. His sports bar was brand new; its grand opening had been delayed by the COVID-19 pandemic and he was just getting ready to open its doors.

He has set up a GoFundMe to rebuild his sports bar and it has immediately taken off.
