Activist Tamika Mallory slams Daniel Cameron: ‘You are a coward, you are a sellout’
Tamika Mallory accused Kentucky AG Daniel Cameron of being more loyal to the police
Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron has received a lot of backlash the last few months over what many believe to have been his mishandling of the Breonna Taylor case. Now Women’s March co-founder Tamika Mallory has come forward to publicly slam him for being a “sellout.”
Friday, while speaking at a press conference held by Benjamin Crump– an attorney representing Taylor’s family– Mallory minced no words when sharing her thoughts about the Black Republican. She believed him to be complicit in white supremacy.
“I thought about the ships that went into Fort Monroe and Jamestown with our people on them over 400 years ago and how there were also Black men on those ships that were responsible for bringing our people over here,” the activist said of her thoughts following Cameron’s announcement Wednesday that a Jefferson County grand jury declined to indict any of the three Louisville police officers in the fatal March shooting of Taylor.
“Daniel Cameron is no different than the sellout negroes that sold our people into slavery and helped White men to capture our people, to abuse them, and to traffic them while our women were raped, while our men were raped by savages,” she continued.
Mallory added that Cameron was removed from the Black community.
“That is who you are, Daniel Cameron. You are a coward. You are a sellout. And you were used by the system to harm your own mama, your own Black mama. We have no respect for you, no respect for your Black skin because all of our skin folk ain’t our kinfolk. And you do not belong to Black people at all.”
While her words may be severe, many have echoed her sentiments since the decision in Taylor’s case was announced. There has even been a viral tweet circulating all over social media that stated, “A cop murdered a Black woman and only got charged for the bullets that missed.”
