A six-minute obscenity-laced attack on black thuggery has gone viral and was viewed 1.6 million times in less than 24 hours.

African-American mom Peggy Hubbard, married with several children, turned on her phone camera sometime Wednesday and let the black community have it, along with the protesters and rioters in St. Louis who protested the death of a young criminal who allegedly pulled a gun on a cop serving a warrant.

From my heart!

You’re hollering that black lives matter bullshit? It don’t matter. You’re killing each other.

Last night, who do you think they protested for? The thug. The criminal, because they’re hollerin’ ‘police brutality.’ Are you fucking kidding me? Police brutality? How about black brutality? You black people—my black people—you are fucking the most violent motherfuckers I have met in my life.

Hubbard is reacting, not just to the riots, but the shooting of a 9-year-old girl who died in a drive-by shooting as she did her homework in her own home, a murder that protesters aren’t taking to the streets about.

According to local news, “Jamyla Bolden was killed doing homework on her mom’s bed and her mother was also wounded when someone began firing into their Ferguson home around 9:30 p.m. Tuesday night.”

Hubbard’s reaction:

A little girl is dead. You say black lives matter? Her life mattered… Yet you trifling motherfuckers are out there tearing up the neighborhood I grew up in.

Hubbard’s video is a cry of the heart from a woman who sees “murder, murder, murder” every day and night in the St. Louis media, what she accurately describes as “black on black” crime.

A good part of the video is personal. Apparently, her son is serving time, and she has no sympathy for the turn he took in his life.

“I told my children. If you fuck up, if you go to jail, I’m not getting you out. You will stay there. You will do the time. I’m not puttin’ nothin’ on your books, comin’ to visit you. I ain’t sending you magazines. I ain’t doing shit for you because I did everything for you out here and you chose to go in there. Fuck you. I’m from the Madea school of justice.” Madea is a reference to a now iconic character created by top-ranking director Tyler Perry.

Hubbard defends the police. “You’re yelling, ‘Fuck the police?’ Fuck you. You’re shootin’ at the police. Police drops your ass. Oh, poor so-and-so. He died due to police brutality. 127 homocides later ya’ll want to holler ‘police brutality.’ Black people. You’re a fucking joke. You’re tearing up communities over thugs and criminals.”

“You think the police are out here for fun? 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 lullaby. No, they’re going to put a cap in your ass. You shoot at them, they’re gonna shoot at you… their job is to serve and protect, not serve and die.”

Reactions have been remarkable. Views of the video are ticking up 100,000 every ten minutes or so. They now stand at more than 2,500,000 and went up 200,000 as this story was prepared. Facebook shares are north of 130,000.

Most of the comments on Hubbard’s Facebook page are from other African-Americans and are enthusiastic. Some complained about the obscenities, but many want her to run for office.

“Excellent job. As real as it gets! Thanks!”

“The real problem. Thank you for speaking out. love go’s out to my sister!”

“Amen to everything she said”

“Peggy you spoke the truth..proud of you lady

“A damn great woman speaking only truths!!! She is one of the few great people out there taking a stand for the right things in this life… Thanks to her from all of us!”
