This one is just sad. A 13 year old black kid goes on the Internet to berate President Obama for inviting the Muslim kid who was arrested in Texas for building an electronic clock…
I have known kids who wanted to grow up to be great scientists, or doctors, or lawyers…This indeed is the first one I’ve ever seen planning to grow up to be a Lawn Jockey.
A Georgia teen took to YouTube this week to criticize the White House for its invitation to a Texas teen who has been in the spotlight for an invention that got him suspended.
Ahmed Mohamed, the Muslim teen from Texas who was suspended earlier this week because a teacher thought his homemade clock was a bomb, will not be returning to the school that suspended him.
The case sparked claims of racial profiling and outrage across the country, with some influential people — including Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and President Obama, who invited him to the White House — showing Ahmed, 14, support.
That invite is drawing sharp criticism from a 13-year-old boy in Georgia. CJ Pearson has never been a fan of the president. In this case, he sees a double standard.
CJ is from the Augusta area, and his name was trending on Facebook overnight for his latest YouTube video.
“When cops are gunned down, you don’t invite them to the White House. You never did. But when a Muslim builds a clock, come on by. What is this world you’re living in?” he said in the video.
CJ goes on to say the invitation to Ahmed fits the president’s agenda.
By Friday morning, the video, posted Wednesday, had been viewed more than 330,000 times.
It’s the latest in a series of videos from CJ, who labeled himself a conservative at the age of 8. His website claims a Facebook base of more than 29,000 followers and a viewership of more than 2 million on his YouTube channel. His Facebook page shows more than 52,000 people like the page.
For his part, Ahmed said he will accept the president’s invitation, which was posted on Twitter. The president called his homemade clock “cool” and asked the teen to bring it to the White House.
Police in Irving, Texas, do not plan to pursue criminal charges against Ahmed.
