The GOP's only black Senate candidate condemned President Barack Obama during a speech at the Republican National Convention in Cleveland Monday night.

Darryl Glenn, GOP candidate for Senate from Colorado, said "the president ran to be commander in chief. Unfortunately, his rhetoric has made him divider in chief. We're more racially divided today than before he ran," reports The Hill.

Glenn also questioned black Democrats, and referenced a new formation of the Black Panthers organization, saying, "Did you see the New Black Panthers outside? Where's Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton? They don't speak for black America, and they don't speak for me."

According to The Hill, he is seen as having a good chance of taking away the seat of Colorado Democrat Sen. Michael Bennet.

Glenn also took aim at the Black Lives Matter movement, saying, "Quite frankly, someone with a nice tan needs to say this: All lives matter."

Black Lives Matter activists have criticized the "All Lives Matter" misconception and have pointed out that the movement does not hate white people or police. According to a statement on the Black Lives Matter website, "Contained within the statement is an unspoken but implied 'too,' as in 'black lives matter, too.'"

Glenn included a message for Obama: "This is not about black America, white America or brown America; this is about the United States of America."
