One mom of African American heritage has made a stand against black on black crime in a video that has gone viral posted to #BlackLivesMatter. Peggy Hubbard is from the area of Ferguson, Missouri, where violent protests have been ongoing since the shooting death of Michael Brown last year.
The Washington Post reported on the death of a 9-year-old little girl in Ferguson this week. Shots were fired into her home, killing Jamyla Bolden and wounding her mother.

In the wake of her death, Peggy has spoken out against black lives matter. Her point? Every life matters. Why are people protesting the killing of thugs caught in the act, while black on black murders, such as that involving little Jamyla Bolden, are ignored.
Blacks Killing Blacks needs to move ahead of this Cops killing Blacks…in DC thats where our problem lies #BlackLivesMatter

The furious mom’s full video is available for viewing on Fox 2 Now. Hubbard begins her video with the news that a black criminal shot at an officer, and the police returned fire, resulting in his death. The same night, young Jamyla, a black girl, was shot to death in her own home, lying on the bed doing homework. Protesters took to the streets in support of the thug who was killed, while the little girl’s death went unnoticed. The following is an excerpt of the transcript from Fox 2 Now, which has been edited for language.
“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.”
“A little girl is dead. You say black lives matter? Her life mattered. Her dreams mattered. Her future mattered. Her promises mattered. It mattered.”
“You want to be upset about black lives? You want to be upset about police brutality? There is police brutality out there. I will give you that. But night, after night, after night on Channel 4, Channel 2, Channel 5, Channel 30, Channel 11 and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch: murder, murder, murder, murder. Black on black murder.”
“Yet you tear up other people’s (stuff) for a criminal, a thug. Bailing out criminals and thugs. You guys need to stop. You’re hollering this black lives matters (stuff). It don’t matter. You’re killing each other.”
“Y’all want to holler ‘police brutality’? You’re tearing up communities over thugs and criminals. You’re putting plaques in the ground over somebody who would not stop. He had a chance to stop. How may times is someone going to tell you to stop doing that (stuff) before they do something to you?”
“Do you think the police are out here for fun? Do you think they’re out here for games? They’re not going to tuck you in. They’re not going to give you a cookie and sing you a lullabye. No, they’re going to pop a cap in your ass. You shoot at them and they’re going to shoot at you. If you try to kill them, their job is serve and protect, not serve and die.”
Black lives do matter. Every life matters.
