Rebuilding After The Riots: Ferguson Cake Shop Owner Grateful to Fellow Americans For Love and Support

Katie Pavlich / Townhall Tipsheet

Natalie Dubose is a single mother of two living and working in Ferguson, Missouri. Dubose runs her own cake shop in the city called Natalie's Cakes and More, a business she dedicated all of her resources to in order to make a living. Dubose started her cake business by renting out a booth at the local flee market every weekend, selling her product and eventually saved enough money to open up a store, which had it's grand opening in August.

Despite pleading with protestors, her store was severely damaged in riots Monday night, but thanks to the generosity of fellow Americans she'll be back in the kitchen in no time. After learning about the destruction, fellow citizens from around the country donated more than $140,000 to a crowdfunding site dedicated to getting her back on her feet. Hundreds of people have also placed orders for her baked goods.

"It's been amazing. I've been crying but these are tears of joy. I'm just so grateful for the outpouring of love and support from people across the country and I thank them," Dubose said during an interview on Fox News Wednesday. "This [the shop] is my baby."

"I am so thankful and I'm so grateful. If I could have arms big enough I would just hug each and every last one of them but I just want to thank everyone that has contributed to helping me rebuild my shop to helping me live my dream and to helping for me to continue to be the mom that I've been to my children, to continue providing them with the support that they need," she said.

All the best to Ms. Dubose, what a wonderful example of the American Dream she is and her cake looks really yummy too! Be sure to check out more about her story here.

  1. If the truth be known, I bet it was MOSTLY white people who gave money to this black lady to restore her bakery. I wonder how much Obama or Holder or Sharpton or Jackson gave. UMMM….I would say less than one cent between the four of them!

    Also, if the truth be known, the people who destroyed this woman’s bakery probably looked a lot like her.

    I know that 95% of all blacks voted for Obama (who voted), I wonder what this bakery owner’s opinion is on politics. Did she support Obama? Would she support him now seeing it was Obama who asked the people (rioters) to stay the course; cause trouble and destroy?

    Would she support Brown’s father who told the rioters to “let the bitch burn?”

    Frankly I wonder if there is only 5% of the black population with two brain cells to rub together.

    After everything bad that has happened to blacks, they still blame the Tea Party for Ferguson; for the failure of Detroit (which is 92% black). They claim we are racists when it is blacks who are raping, robbing and killing our kind.

    Will white people forever believe the liberal media that blacks are the good ones? It is the liberal whites who are the stupid ones! When the race war breaks out, may they be the first to die at the hands of a white hating nigger.

  2. The troll that visits this site and defends niggers ought to read this article:

    This is generally called white flight and it also happened in Detroit. After rioting, property values go down to almost nothing because of nigger violence.

    Remember that the so-called white people with pasty asses don’t want any part of the violence that accompanies large groups of niggers. Even good black people try to get away from the niggers!

    We should celebrate whenever a nigger like Michael Brown dies because he can’t cause anymore harm.

    It is too bad that this decent black woman will live in a ghost town with all the niggers who destroyed her business. I would take the money and move out! She doesn't owe those niggers a thing. Let those who destroyed bakeries and auto parts shops live without them. Force them to drive 10 miles to get an air filter or a quart of oil, or even buy some doughnuts. Fuck the niggers! The dumb shits don't deserve to live among decent people.
