Somebody want to explain to me what Natalie DuBose did to deserve having her hopes and dreams burned to the ground?

One of those businesses was a cake store, Cakes and More, owned by Natalie DuBose. DuBose sold cakes at flea markets while she saved up to open up her own store so she could feed her kids and succeed.
She did succeed, only to have the rioters destroy her business among the nearly three dozen businesses that were looted or burned or both.
Another that I heard about was a Little Caesar’s pizza place. Mostly likely a franchise operation. In other words, a small businessman or businesswoman. Now it’s gone, burned to the ground, along with the jobs it provided. Vandals and thieves laying to waste what took years to build. This is “justice?”
Will any of the race-panderers in the Congressional Black Caucus call for justice for Natalie DuBose and the other small business people harmed last night by the rioters?
No, I’m not holding my breath.
PS: An update on Ms. DuBose. She show far more generosity of spirit than I’d likely be able to manage.
