Illinois Woman Claims Black People Are 'The Most Violent' In Viral Anti-Black Lives Matter Video

"Y'all are hollering this Black Lives Matter bullsh*t. It don't matter, you're killing each other."

An Illinois woman named Peggy Hubbard didn't hold back when she took to her Facebook page to post a video about 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 six-minute video uploaded August 20th, has since gone viral, and been viewed more than 7 million times. During the rant, the St. Louis., Mo., native said the police shooting of 18-year-old Mansur Ball-Bey, whom she referred to as a "thug" wasn't as important as the shooting of Jamyla Bolden, who was killed by a stray-bullet during a drive by shooting August 18.

"Last night, who do you think they protested for? The thug, the criminal, because they're howling, 'Police brutality,' "Hubbard said. "Are you f--king 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."

Hubbard, who according to her Facebook page retired from the IRS, believes in the Madea school of thinking when it comes to raising children, which is why she turned her son into 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. You will stay there. You will do the time. I'm not putting nothing on your books, I am not coming to visit you. I ain't sending you magazines. I'm not doing s--t for you because I did everything I could for you out here and yet you chose to go in there. F--k you"

Since the release of Hubbard's video, she's received praise and backlash but 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.

Chicago Man Has Wrongful Murder Conviction Overturned After Serving 17 Years

A Chicago man who accused a retired cop of framing him for a murder he didn't commit has finally had the conviction overturned after spending 17 years in prison.

According to Buzzfeed News, Geraldo Iglesias was released from prison in 2010 for the 1993 murder of Monica Roman, who was shot and killed while sitting inside her car in Chicago's Humboldt Park neighborhood. However, Iglesias spent the last nine years fighting to have the conviction removed from his record because it prohibited his ability to get a job or find housing.

Iglesias is the 10th man to have a conviction overturned after being investigated by Reynaldo Guevara. Buzzfeed invested the former detective and found 50 men accused him of framing them for murders they allege they didn't commit.

At Iglesias' 1995 sentencing, he spoke directly to the victim's family and expressed his condolences while maintaining his innocence.

"I would like to say that I apologize and I’m sorry for what happened to the young lady and I send my condolences to the family but I would like to say I had nothing to do with it and the Lord knows I had nothing to do with it.”

Iglesias' conviction was sealed on the testimony of a jailhouse informant Francisco Vicente who alleged Islesias confessed to him about killing Roman. Vicente said Iglesias said, "I shot the bitch in the head.”

In the past Guevara and his partner, Ernest Halvorsen have used the 5th Amendment rights to avoid self-incrimination. Buzzfeed reports at least 17 defendants who allege Guevara framed them are still behind bars.

Donald Trump Doesn't Have Any MLK Day Activities Planned

President Donald Trump has no public events scheduled for Dr. Martin Luther King day.

On Friday (Jan. 18) the president signed a proclamation in which encouraged “all Americans to recommit themselves to Dr. King’s dream by engaging in acts of service to others, to their community, and to our Nation.” The Daily Beast reports. However, Trump may not have included himself in the proclamation.

NEW: @realDonaldTrump won't be participating in any Martin Luther King Jr. Day service activities tomorrow. According to the White House schedule, he "has no public events scheduled."

While the president's plans on the national day of service are unclear, Vice President Mike Pence compared Dr. King's legacy of peace to the current U.S. partial government shutdown. On CBS’s Face the Nation Sunday (Jan. 20) Pence quoted the late civil rights leader.

"One of my favorite quotes from Dr. King was, ‘Now is the time to make real the promises of democracy,’” Pence said. "You think of how he changed America. He inspired us to change through the legislative process, to become a more perfect union...That’s exactly what President Trump is calling on Congress to do: Come to the table in the spirit of good faith.

We’ll secure our border. We’ll reopen the government and we’ll move our nation forward as the president said yesterday to even a broader discussion about immigration reform in the months ahead.”

As of Jan. 21, the United States government has been shut down for 31 days. More than 800,000 federal employees have gone without pay due to an impasse between the Democratic Congress and the White House. Donald Trump has asked for $5.7 billion for a U.S.-Mexico wall, while the Democrats are refusing to budge.

Sen. Kamala Harris Announces Her Run For Presidency

Sen. Kamala Harris has announced she's running for president in 2020.

The announcement is somewhat expected from the California Democratic senator who has not-so coyly led up to Monday's announcement (Jan. 21) by way of the press run she's conducted earlier this month as part of her book tour.

In a video clip posted to her social media prior to an appearance on ABC's Good Morning America, Sen. Harris called on her supporters to "claim their future."

"Justice. Decency. Equality. Freedom. Democracy. These aren't just words. They're the values we as Americans cherish. And they're all on the line now."

"The future of our country depends on you and millions of others lifting our voices to fight for our American values," Harris continued. "That's why I'm running for president of the United States. "I'm running to lift those voices, to bring our voices together."

I'm running for president. Let's do this together. Join us: https://t.co/9KwgFlgZHA pic.twitter.com/otf2ez7t1p

Harris is the first black woman to throw her hat in the 2020 presidential ring. Sen. Elizabeth Warren of Massachusetts and Kirsten Gillibrand of New York have announced exploratory committees. Harris, however, has bypassed that.

Harris gained national attention (and favor) during the Brett Kavanaugh hearing when she grilled the future Supreme Court justice about sexual assault allegations leveled against him by Dr. Betty Ford.
