Tennessee State Rep. Justin Pearson (D-Memphis) is embroiled in yet another scandal. Watch the shocking video below.
Pearson is the Black Panther wannabe who was expelled from the state house after he tried to incite a riot inside the House chamber.
Pearson styled himself in the manner of Malcolm X, Martin Luther King, Jr. and a Black Panther. He portrayed himself as an oppressed black man. But it turns out he’s anything but oppressed.
Pearson attended the exclusive Bowdoin College in Maine — where tuition is around $75,000.
And during his time at Bowdoin, the radical activist was not so much a Black Panther as he was a pussycat. And we have the proof.
Video has surfaced from a campaign he ran a few years ago when he was running to be the student body president.
He was not sporting an afro, nor was he wearing a traditional African dashiki. And he was not speaking in the cadence of a “southern black preacher.”
Pearson can be seen in a suit and tie, calling on Republicans and Democrats to work together. No afro. And he sounded more white that most white folks.
I wouldn’t be surprised if Pearson actually listens to country music, watches “Everybody Loves Raymond,” and hits the early-bird special at Bob Evans.
He pulled a “Black Hillary” in reverse.
In 2007 Hillary Clinton broke into a “black preacher voice” during a speech to black Americans.
“I ain’t noways tired,” she told the crowd. It was cringe-inducing.
So far from being an oppressed, impoverished black man — Pearson has actually lived a privileged life. In other words, he’s a pandering fraud.
