Candace Owens says black Kentucky AG has been ‘racially attacked by the left’ for Breonna Taylor decision

KENTUCKY Attorney General Daniel Cameron has been "socially lynched" since he announced the grand jury decision in the shooting death of Breonna Taylor, Candace Owens has claimed.

In a Thursday night appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight, the conservative author said she's "infuriated" by the "racial attacks" against the black AG.

"For me, it's absolutely infuriating to watch," she told host Tucker Carlson. 

"I've been on the receiving end of the same sort of attacks. Here's what's so fundamentally wrong and backwards about it... if you actually look at what they are saying and what the deeper implications are here, it's there is a right way, a correct way and a wrong way to be black."

"This guy should be commended by both sides, and instead he’s being attacked racially by the left," she added.

Cameron made headlines on Wednesday after he announced that none of the three Louisville cops - Officers Myles Cosgrove, Brett Hankison, and Jonathan Mattingly - would face charges in connection with Taylor's death.

The controversial decision prompted furious backlash from many, some of whom claimed the black AG from Kentucky was "skinfolk, but not kinfolk."

"All skinfolk ain't...," she captioned a retweet of actress Kerry Washington's criticisms of Cameron.

"Ironically Tucker, that's the very definition of racism and it's coming from the liberals who like to say that they see racism everywhere but they can't recognize it when it's coming out of their own mouth," Owens said on Thursday.

She slammed Democrats for trying to define what it means to be a black American.

"I've often said the Democrat Party has built almost a prototype of what it means to be a Black American," Owens said.

"You must vote Democrat...you must react emotionally and not rationally...we must be faithful and abide by icons like 'King' LeBron James and 'Queen' Beyonce."

Cameron attempted to address the high-running emotions wrought by Taylor's case, which garnered national attention three months after she was shot dead in the wake of George Floyd's police-involved killing in Minneapolis.

He railed against "celebrities and influencers," who he claimed were trying to "tell us how to feel" despite not knowing the facts of the case.

“There will be celebrities, influencers and activists who having never lived in Kentucky will try to tell us how to feel, suggesting they understand the facts of this case, that they know our community and the Commonwealth better than we do, but they don’t," Cameron said.

On Thursday, Owens said Cameron "did the right thing by ignoring the various pressures coming from culture and the mainstream media.

"And for that you are seeing him being socially lynched and stripped of his identity because he acted professionally and rationally," she said.
