Vernon Jones, the self-proclaimed "Black Donald Trump," made the comments on Steve Bannon's podcast.
He claimed that civil rights for gay people aren't the same because "they can actually change.".
Jones, who is running for Georgia's 10th district, is backed by former President Donald Trump.
Georgia Republican congressional candidate Vernon Jones said Thursday that civil rights for Black people don't apply to gay people because "they can actually change" to become straight, HuffPost reported.
"Let me tell you, civil rights for Blacks and gay rights for gays are two different things," Jones said during an appearance on Steve Bannon's "War Room" podcast.
Jones also claimed that people can "go from being straight to being gay to being transgender and all these other genders."
Jones doubled down on this argument on Twitter, saying comparing being Black to being gay is a "damn lie.". »
