Black woman slams looters for destroying her New York store 

An elderly black woman has slammed looters saying they 'lied' when they said 'Black Lives Matter' and telling them to 'get a job' after her Brooklyn store was destroyed in riots. 

Shocking footage posted on social media shows the distraught New Yorker blasting the actions of looters as she stands in front of her shell of a store with its front now exposed and wires seen dangling down from the ceiling.

'The problem that bothers me? You said Black Lives Matter,' the emotional black woman is heard saying while other people cleaning up the destruction look on.  

'I've worked here part time and I'm a part owner of this store.

'You said Black Lives Matter. Why don't you choke me? I'm black!' she says as she makes a choking gesture on her throat.

The distressed woman points out all the damage done to the store, the exact location of which is not clear. 

'Look what you did to my store. Look!' she says gesturing at the damage as the camera rolls onto the now exposed storefront following the fifth night of chaos in the Big Apple.  

'Look at the things you done! We've been here all night cleaning up!' she says. 

The woman, wearing plastic gloves from cleaning up the damage, then walks over and points out a pile of destroyed goods from inside the store which are now on the sidewalk.

'Tell me Black Lives Matter? You lied - you wanted to loot this store. You needed money - get a job like I do!' she says.

'Stop stealing. This is the neighborhood - we trying to build it up and you tearing it down.'

In New York City, peaceful daytime protests over George Floyd's death have descended into rioting come nightfall with looters ransacking stores in mainly wealthy areas such as Soho as well as in some local neighborhoods. 

Around 200 people were arrested in New York City Tuesday night and Donald Trump has threatened to send in National Guard troops to bring an end to protests.  

The city was put on an 8pm curfew from Tuesday through Sunday but thousands continued to defy the order. 

Floyd, a 46-year-old father of two, was killed last Monday in Minneapolis when a white cop knelt on his neck for almost nine minutes. Floyd begged officer Derek Chauvin to stop and said 'I can't breathe'.
