Over the weekend, Pearson wrote a letter to CNN stating why he can no longer support conservatism:
“I was tired of being a champion of a party that turned a blind eye to racial discrimination. Tired of being a champion of any cause that denies equal rights to every American. Tired of being a champion of a party that doesn’t care about the issues important to young people.”
So basically, the lad realized that black lives don’t matter when it comes to his fellow conservatives.
“Over the past few days, I thought about essentially how I don’t want people to follow me because I’m that anti-Obama kid, or who called out Hillary Clinton or who took Bernie Sanders to task,” he said.
Pearson said after seeing the video of Laquan McDonald being gunned down, he realized that he was making wrong decisions politically.
