White racists strike again; Ferguson bakery heavily damaged in riots receives $200,000 in donations

Two white racists just can't leave a poor black woman alone. David Swingle and a woman who goes by the Twitter handle of Fancy Pantaloonies set up Gofundme accounts for a black bakery owner in Ferguson whose shop was nearly destroyed by rioters.

In less than one day, nearly $200,000 was raised.

Natalie DuBose, owner of Natalie's Cakes and More appeared on local TV after the riots and swore to remain in Ferguson and rebuild. Her story went viral and the Gofundme accounts were created. The accounts are now under Natalie's control.

Fox 2 News:

Help is on the way for the owner of Natalie’s Cakes and More! On Monday night, those who participated in rioting damaged the shop and the equipment inside.

Natalie DuBose has invested everything into her business. The windows and other materials that were needed for upcoming Thanksgiving orders were destroyed. However, Natalie says she can’t go anywhere and plans to remain in Ferguson.

Natalie’s Cakes and More opened its doors in June of this year and Natalie’s dream of owning her own business was fulfilled.

Since her appearance on FOX 2 News on Tuesday, November 25th, two Go Fund Me accounts have been created. In less than 24 hours, over $100,000 was donated to Ms. DuBose to help with repairs.

Actress Patricia Heaton also donated and  urged others to do the same. Natalie sent a special ‘Thank you’ tweet to her supporters after learning about the news.

A remarkable story to be sure. Two ordinary people unleashing the power of social media. Too often social media outlets like Twitter are used to destroy. It's heartwarming to see so many give generously to someone in need this Thanksgiving holiday.
