Tamika Mallory, the co-founder of the Women’s March, harshly criticized Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, comparing him to “sold out N ** roes” who participated in the transatlantic slave trade.
Mallory spoke at a press conference in Louisville, Kentucky on Friday where he criticized Cameron for the grand jury’s decision not to directly accuse officers of the murder of Breonna Taylor.
“Daniel Cameron is no different from the sold out blacks who sold our people into slavery and helped the whites catch our people for abuse and trafficking,” he said. ‘That’s who you are Daniel Cameron.
“You are sold out and used by the system to harm your mother, your black mother,” he continued. “We have no respect for you, no respect for your black skin, because all our skinfolk are not our relatives and you don’t belong to blacks at all.”
“ Daniel Cameron is no different from the sold-out niggers who sold our people into slavery, ” Women’s March co-founder Tamika Mallory said at a press conference on Friday.
Cameron is Kentucky’s first black attorney general and is considered a rising star in the Republican party. He was included on President Donald Trump’s list of potential Supreme Court candidates and praised by the president, who said he handled the Taylor case “very well”.
On Wednesday, Cameron announced the jury’s findings on Taylor’s death on March 13. She was shot dead by police during a drug raid after cops returned fire when her boyfriend shot and hit an officer.
Cameron presented evidence to a state grand jury, which found Taylor’s death justified. The grand jury indicted one of the three officers who opened fire for arbitrary danger, for allegedly wild shots entered a nearby apartment.
Mallory pointed out that Cameron announced the conclusion of the grand jury on September 23, the same date in 1955 that a white-only jury acquitted two defendants for the murder of Emmett Till, a black boy lynched in Mississippi.

‘Now I don’t know if it’s just that Daniel Cameron is stupid or that he’s very, very, very clear about the story and made the decision to wait six months and come forward with this announcement, this junk that we got exactly the same day in which Emmett Till’s family received the same results, “he said.
A spokesperson for Cameron’s office said he understood that the outcome of the grand jury proceedings was not what the protesters had hoped for.
“As for today’s statements at the press conference, everyone is entitled to their opinion, but prosecutors and Grand Jury members are bound by facts and the law,” the spokesman said in a statement.
“Attorney General Cameron is committed to doing everything possible to ensure the integrity of the prosecution before him and to continue to fulfill his ethical obligations both as an attorney and as a partner in the ongoing federal investigation.”
