Instead of threatening protesters with violence, Trump and his party should listen to their demands, which is simply a message of justice and equality. Shortly after Mansur’s death, a 9-year-old girl in Ferguson was killed by a stray bullet while doing her homework. It don’t matter. You’re killing each other.
Said Hubbard, “Last night, who do you think they protested for? The thug, the criminal, because they’re howling, ‘Police brutality, ‘” Hubbard said.
Over the past year, Black Lives Matter protests have shut down freeways and disrupted shoppers at Mall of America.
Hubbard must understand that focusing on one Black cause does not take away from paying attention to another issue that should be addressed.
An Illinois mother’s Facebook rant on the viral #BlackLivesMatter movement is gaining Internet steam of its own with more than 4 million views on social media. “Calling me a sellout”. “I am not a sellout”. Clinton later told them in a private meeting, “Respectfully, if [black people can not do much to stop violence against them] is your position, then I will only talk to white people about how we are going to deal with the very real problems”.
Hubbard says she believes the protesters are targeting the wrong culprit, mentioning the young life taken.
“There was as a full blown riot in St. Louis… on the news”, she said, adding she and her husband were watching television when the news cut into programming to cover the police shooting of Ball-Bey and ensuing protests.
This is a transcript of the six minute video. This is not about race. This is about accountability and responsibility… “Don’t steal them, earn them. People do not respect you if you do not respect yourself”. Lemon interviewed Hubbard, who later later blasted the left-wing concept of “white privilege”. And if she did live here and she spent some time with folks who live here, she would see people, it’s not either or.
Hubbard’s remarks seem to have struck a chord with the public, torn between a spike in murder rates and highly publicized incidents of African-Americans dying in encounters with police.
“A little girl is dead”, she says.
O’Malley made the comment (often used to invalidate the concerns of Black communities under the scourge of systemic oppression and police brutality at alarming rates) while speaking at the liberal activists Netroots Nation conference earlier this summer. I am a black mother. He claimed that while the GOP has ignored the black community for too long, African-American participation would help blacks “communicate and find a different way”.
LEMON: All right. Mark, I got to go. You want to be upset about police brutality? I can tell you she wasn’t anxious about Socialist senators from tiny rural states.
