Peggy Hubbard, a black grandmother who grew up near Ferguson, Missouri, went on a rant against the Black Lives Matter movement that has now been seen by at least 7 million people.
Hubbard was apparently set off by events in Ferguson in which Mansur Ball-Bey, a young black man, was killed by police and, in a separate situation, a 9-year-old Jamyla Bolden was killed by a stray bullet in a drive-by shooting.
“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,” said Hubbard.
“A little girl is dead. You say black lives matter? Her life mattered. Her dreams mattered. Her future mattered. Her promises mattered. It mattered,” she added.
She also mentioned her son, who she claimed she turned in to the police herself.
