Amid the recent rioting in Minnesota after the killing of Daunte Wright, Foot Locker stores in the city have again been looted by Black Lives Matter rioters. The looting comes despite the company having donated $200 million to Black Lives Matter causes throughout the last year.

According to reports, Foot Locker gave $200 million following the riots that ravaged the country after the death of George Floyd. The funds were given for the purpose of "investing in youth-centric Black-owned businesses."

Foot Locker said at the time that it was dedicated to "enhancing the lives of our team members and our customers in the Black Community through Economic Development and Education."
