Georgia U.S. Senate candidate Herschel Walker asserted that the Democratic Party “has left Brown and Black people behind” Thursday on “Hannity.”

Walker responded to a column from Elie Mystal entitled, “The Herschel Walker Senate Campaign Is an Insult to Black People.” Mystal called the campaign “a political minstrel show.”

” … [W]hat’s strange about it is he’s not telling everyone that the Democratic Party has left Brown and Black people behind,” Walker told host Sean Hannity. “They forgot all about us, and they not just forgot about us, you look at the policy that’s going on, which has nothing to do with color.”

“What it has to do with is these policies are not suitable for the people of Georgia. They’re not suitable for the people of the United States of America.”

Walker vowed not to be bullied by Mystal, saying he was bullied as a child and words will not hurt him.

He then invited the writer to visit Georgia to “break bread” with him.

He is “about bringing people together, not separating people,” he explained. “What it seems like you are [doing] is to separate people because of color. That’s not Herschel Walker.”
