Kentucky AG Rebukes Biden: ‘You Can’t Tell Me How to Vote Because of the Color of My Skin’

Kentucky attorney general Daniel Cameron on Tuesday rebuked Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden for saying African Americans who don't vote for him "ain't black."

"Mr. Vice President, look at me. I am black. We are not all the same, sir. I am not in chains. My mind is my own. And you can't tell me how to vote because of the color of my skin," Cameron said in a speech at the Republican National Convention.

In May, Biden told radio host Charlamagne tha God that if he was having second thoughts about voting for him instead of Donald Trump, then he "ain't black." In August, Biden was also criticized for saying there was no diversity of thought in the black community.

Cameron added that the country must not move "back to a time when people were treated like political commodities who can't be trusted to think for themselves."
