“A little girl is dead. You say black lives matter? Her life mattered.”
Hubbard, a U.S. Navy veteran and Ferguson native posted her Facebook rant after she learned about the death of nine-year old Jamyla Bolden who was shot while studying on her bed. In the video, Hubbard vents that the Black Lives Matters protesters should be protesting black-on-black crime instead of protesting for “thugs” and police brutality.
‘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’re hollering this ‘black lives matter’ bullshit. It don’t matter. You’re killing each other. White people don’t care … You’re shooting at the police. They drop your ass. ‘Oh, he died due to police brutality.’ 327 homicides later y’all want to holler police brutality? Black people, you’re a fucking joke. You’re tearing up communities over thugs and criminals.’
