Breonna Taylor Case: Black Kentucky Attorney General Called ‘Sellout,’ Compared to Slavemaster

Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, who spoke at the Republican National Convention, declined to bring murder charges against the three white officers involved in the tragic shooting of Louisville’s Breonna Taylor, a Black woman.

Contrary to the public assertion made by a Taylor family lawyer, Cameron, who is Black, said the Louisville police did not go to the wrong address when executing a search warrant. Nor was Taylor shot and killed in her bed, as also publicly asserted by the family lawyer. Ben Crump, a spokesman and defense attorney for the Taylor family, falsely claimed the police went to the wrong address. And in a statement full of inaccuracies, Crump, who negotiated a $12 million settlement with Louisville, said, “Taylor and her boyfriend were asleep in their apartment when Louisville Police burst into the home without warning using a battering ram, in search of a suspect who was already in their custody.”

Cameron carefully, methodically and with sensitivity to the Taylor family reviewed the evidence and explained why the law and facts did not warrant murder charges, however massive the intensity of the public’s passion for charges. Cameron said: “Evidence shows that officers both knocked and announced their presence at the apartment. The officers’ statements about their announcement are corroborated by an independent witness who was near, in a proximity to Apartment 4. … When officers were unable to get anyone to answer or open the door to apartment four, the decision was made to breach the door.” A man inside the apartment fired, striking an officer, and the officers returned fire, killing Taylor.

The anger over Cameron’s decision was fierce, ugly and personal. At a press conference arranged by the Taylor family attorney, Tamika Mallory, co-founder of the Women’s March, said: “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.

“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.”

Sophia A. Nelson, who often appears as a pundit on CNN, tweeted: “Uncle Tom. Step & fetch Negro. The end.”

But perhaps the viciousness award goes to retired Los Angeles Police Department Sergeant Cheryl Dorsey, who said: “Let me say this as a Black woman: He does not speak for Black folks. He’s skin-folk, but he is not kinfolk. And so just like he thinks they can’t speak for Kentucky because he’s up there with a Black face, he does not speak for all of us. This was not a tragedy. This was a murder. He should be ashamed of himself.”

Cameron is also being attacked because he is not only a Black Republican but also a Black Republican who spoke passionately at the Republican National Convention in support of President Donald Trump. About the opposition to him because he is a Black Republican, Cameron once tweeted: “Yesterday, a liberal attorney said I should stop eating ‘coon flakes’ in a Courier Journal interview. I am a proud lifelong Republican, part of a diverse KY GOP ticket, and yes I support Donald Trump. It’s time to stop telling black Americans what we’re allowed to believe.”

Women’s March co-founder Mallory and Dorsey are exactly why I produced the documentary “Uncle Tom,” which addresses the attacks against Black conservatives for the crime of thinking differently. The film, now available on iTunes, Amazon Prime and Roku, has received a 9.4 rating on IMDb and a 98% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.

“Uncle Tom” asks simple questions: Are Blacks free to think for themselves? Black conservatives support low taxes, strong borders, choice in public schools. They want to reevaluate the welfare state on the grounds that it destabilizes the American family, no matter the race. Can a Black conservative advocate for school choice and debate its merit without being dismissed as a Black conservative “sellout” for supporting choice? Are Blacks allowed to hold conservative views without being eviscerated by the Mallorys and the Dorseys as self-loathers, coconuts, Oreos, “Uncle Toms” and other names unfit for family consumption?

The New York Times executive editor Dean Baquet, who is Black, once admitted, “The left, as a rule, does not want to hear thoughtful disagreement.” Well, the Black left doesn’t believe that there is such a thing called thoughtful disagreement — at least not thoughtful disagreement with a Black conservative.

“Uncle Tom” does not tell viewers what to think. The film says Blacks are free to think for themselves. We would be happy to provide copies of “Uncle Tom” for Mallory and Dorsey.

  1. Can these folks (attorneys) be charged for spreading lies not matching the findings of the investigation? Cuz it just leads to civil unrest!

  2. Yes, refer to the Supreme Court ruling that says ,in effect, that yelling”fire” in a movie theater is not protected as “freedom of speech” because it endangers public safety. Do riots endanger public safety? Are violent protests? I do think so.

  3. I am so glad that Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron is standing up for Black Conservative people.
    What the leftist Democrats are saying and doing is completely wrong. Just because he has a different point of
    view, which is entirely correct I might add, is no reason to call him names and belittle him. Shame on you Black
    people who believe and follow the normal nasty Democratic philosophy so thoroughly! You are disgusting, and just followers of a philosophy that will lead you into Hell. There has never been such a division in this country and I hate
    to see it now, but the hate, name-calling, riots, and destruction are proven elements of the Democratic Party. If you
    follow that route, you are doomed.

  4. I applaud Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron, he stands by his investigation and tells it like it is. The lawyers on the other side made up lies about what happened. He told them off, shame on you black people who do not see what the law says happened. He also stood for the police officers who knocked on the door and no one opened it so they had a warrant and busted the door opened and the boyfriend started shooting and hit one of the officers and the other officers shot back and hit Breona Taylor. The lawyers for the Taylor family lied about what really happened and they should be arrested for causing chaos.

  5. CONGRATS TO CAMERON!!!!!!! HE IS A PERSON WITH HIS OWN VOICE AND KNOWS HOW TO SPEAK TO EXPLAIN THAT “ALL” PEOPLE HAVE THE RIGHT TO THEIR OPINION???????? THE DEMS “DO NOT BELIEVE IN FREE SPEACH”……..UNLESS IT IS THEM…..WHO IS USING THE FREE SPEACH?????? THEY ARE THE ONLY ONES (COMMUNIST) WHO SHOULD HAVE AN OPINION?????? JUST REMEMBER NANCY RUNS THE HOUSE…….AND SHE THREATENS THE DEMS IF THEY DO NOT VOTE THE WAY SHE “DEMANDS”. THEY WILL SUFFER!!!!!!! THE DEMS IN THE HOUSE DO NOT HAVE A BRAIN FOR THEIR SELF……THE DEMS JUST PROVE THAT ALL OF THEM ARE CROOKED, THUGS, LIARS, CERTAINLY NOT TRUSTWORTHY, ETC; WHEN NANCY SAYS “JUMP”….THEY SAY HOW HIGH????????

  6. I think they need to rethink Sgt. Dorsey’s vetting for the police Dept. She’s obviously a biased racist and should not be on the police force. As they are concerned about white police racism and want to root it out. Sgt. Dorsey shows the same racism for a black officer. What’s right for one is right for all. Stop the insanity and be fair for all.

  7. I applaud Cameron. He’s only being truthful. Everyone has their rights no matter race religion or background. We all want to practice the same rules laws n freedoms. Really admire his voice n opinions. Takes courage n strength.

  8. Way to stand up for justice Mr. Cameron. A bit of physiology for us all. The only physiological difference between all Homo Sapiens Sapiens (modern human) is the amount of melanin in the skin. Take our skin off and we are all the SAME. Uproars and ridiculous name calling surrounding this event (and others like it) expressed above have nothing to do with skin color. The issue stems over cultural tradition that has been created within a group. Attitudes within groups get set and reinforced over time. Individuals within ‘said group’ are always going to be “pissy” and resistant if social, political, legal and financial outcomes do NOT go their way. The low EQ and juvenile behavior of those involved reflect on the outdated and immature outlook of the norms set with that group. Grow up people! Stop choosing criminals as your heroes and martyrs.

  9. Добавлю, мне не обидно, я взрослый человек.
    Хотелось бы получить инструкцию, что делать.

  10. Great post! Are there any pespectives that you may be able to divulge in order to justify your last part a small amount further? thanks a lot
