An Illinois woman named Peggy Hubbard held no punches when she used her facebook to share her thoughts on the Black Lives Matter movement.
“Y’all are hollering this Black Lives Matter bullsh*t. It don’t matter, you’re killing each other.”
Hubbard’s video clocks in at 6 minutes and was uploaded August 6. The video has now accumulated over 7 million views and during the rant the woman who hails from St. Louis, Mo called Mansur Ball-Bey a thug and said the shooting of Jamyla Bolden, was more important than the first shooting.
“Last night, who do you think they protested for? The thug, the criminal, because they’re howling, ‘Police brutality,’ “Hubbard said.
Hubbard, who is a retiree of the IRS according to her facebook profile, believes in the Madea School of thinking when it comes to children, which explains why she turned her son over to the police.
“Let me tell you something. I got a kid locked up. Oh yeah, I put him there. I turned his ass in. Yes I did because I’m a strong black woman. I am a black mother. I told my children that if you f–k up, if you go to jail, I am not getting you out.”
Pretty harsh right?
Since the video has been released she has received backlash and praise but she vows to take the high road:
Look, I don’t pretend to have all the answers on whats wrong with the black community. I am just Peggy. I can be rough around the edges. I can be well spoken. I can sling it with the best of them. I am real. And, hopefully honest. Straight up is what I am and I DON’T roll any punches. But, what I am NOT is a “sell out”. I had alot of positive feedback from alot of people from my black community to keep going. I had alot of negative feedback also from people in black communities as well. Calling me unspeakable things. Yes, I lashed out and gave it back. But, the high road is where I need to stay. I will NOT jump on your “HATE WHITE PEOPLE!” I’m not built that way. I am not viable to my black community, because I am not jumping on YOUR bandwagon to, hate the police, hate white people, scream racism, be “anti-government? Sorry to disappoint! But, my momma did raise any fools. If YOUR life is in shambles? If your are standing around pointing blame? START WITH YOURSELVES! I speak from experience. You want “black lives matter?” Then START WITH YOUR BLACK LIFE! Keep your racism, my heart belongs to LOVE.
