A 13-year old YouTuber who went viral due to his conservative videos criticizing President Obama is now admitting that his conscience is making him leave the Republican party.

When the president invited Ahmed Mohamed to visit the White House after he was detained for bringing a homemade clock to school, Pearson posted a video asking, “When cops are gunned down, you don’t invite them to the White House. You never did. But when a Muslim kid builds a clock, come on by. What is this world you’re living in?”

However, now the former chairman of the Teens for Ted Cruz youth group is having a serious change of heart about his political allegiances.

Friday, Pearson told CNN that he could no longer be a “champion of a party that turned a blind eye to racial discrimination.”

4. Scary, huh?

Most of the teens I know (admittedly mostly white and various sorts of Asian) are for Bernie.

I'm really happy he's in the process of changing his POV.

6. We have to remember our history.

The Democratic Party used to be the party of segregation and racism. That changed with LBJ and the Civil Rights Act. Lots of Southern white Democrats jumped ship.
