(Scroll down for video) A Kentucky fire chief was caught on video refusing to help a black family while caring for a white man.

The Kentucky fire chief is being criticized for racism after he refused to help the family of stranded motorists because they were black.

Southeast Bullitt Fire Chief Julius Hatfield is apparently not only racist to black people, but to other minorities as well.

Hatfield was heard discussing a traffic accident on I-65. He went out of his way to assist Loren Dicken, who is white.

He even offered to change his tire free of charge. “You got a jack?” Hatfield asked the driver. “If you show me where it is I’ll get my guys to change the tire for you,” he said.

At first, Dicken turned down the offer, but Hatfield insisted, saying, “It will save you a bill.”

Firefighters later, picked up Dicken from a hospital and took him back to the fire station, where his car was fixed and ready to go.

However, Hatfield treated the black family of four completely different.

“I’ve got a family of four from Cincinnati, I got to do something with them,” the Bullitt County deputy tells Hatfield over the radio.

“We ain’t taking no n****rs here,” Hatfield replied while laughing.

Instead of offering to help Chege Mwangi, the deputy recommended that he call the AAA auto club.

Hatfield Chinn said that he does not remember making the racist comments during the accident on I-65. When he learned that his statement was recorded on video, he said that “it was a slip of the tongue.”
