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


"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.
