Over the weekend, Peggy Hubbard became a viral sensation after she released her rant against #BlackLivesMatter movement. In the video, she spoke about protesters who marched for 18-year-old Mansur Ball-Bey, who was recently shot by St. Louis police on Wednesday, August 19th. Hubbard’s biggest frustration was when the #BlackLivesMatter protesters were not paying attention to 9-year-old Jamlya Bolden, who was killed by an unknown shooter in St. Louis.
“Last night, who do you think they protested for? The thug, the criminal, because they’re howling, ‘Police brutality.’ Are you kidding me? Police brutality? How about Black brutality? You guys need to stop. You’re hollering this ‘Black Lives Matter’ stuff. It don’t matter. You’re killing each other. White people don’t care. They don’t care. Your life does not matter. If it doesn’t matter to you, then it doesn’t matter to us. That is the truth of the reality. If you don’t care, then we don’t care.” Hubbard said on her Facebook page.
Peggy, who is a U.S. Navy veteran, revealed that her son is behind bars because she turned him to the police. “I turned him in. Yes I did because I’m a strong black woman. I am a black mother. I told my children that if you (mess) up, if you go to jail, I am not getting you out. You will stay there. You will do the time. I am not coming to visit you. I ain’t sending you magazines. I’m not doing anything for you because I did everything I could for you out here and yet you chose to go in there,” she said in the video.
When she mentioned Mansur Ball-Bey, she had nothing but negative things to say like: “You guys need to stop. You’re hollering this black lives matters (stuff). It don’t matter. You’re killing each other. White people don’t care. They don’t care. Save us some tax dollars. I need new parts for my Harley. If you want to die, die. Go ahead and knock yourself out. Your life does not matter. If it doesn’t matter to you then it doesn’t matter to us. That is the truth of the reality. If you don’t care then we don’t care,” she said.
Do you agree with Peggy Hubbard? Is black on black crime more important than police brutality in America?
