WASHINGTON D.C — Tom Freeman, the 27-year-old GOP Staffer closely aligned with Jeb Bush, has been falsely portraying himself as a white man, according to his mother.
In a week of similar revelations surrounding Spokane NAACP Chapter President Rachel Dolezal – Mary Freeman said Monday that she and her son have been estranged for years. She says the family background is African-American, Jamaican and Native American — with “faint traces” of Irish. She claims her son started to falsely claim he was white “about eight or nine years ago” upon looking for work as a college graduate.
“It’s very sad that Tom has not just been himself,” Mrs Freeman said.
“His effectiveness in the causes of the white community would have been so much more viable, and he would have been more effective, if he had just been honest with everybody.”
“I only decided to expose him after I heard he was spending his weekends at lake-houses and watching Jim Carrey movies with his new Canadian girlfriend. That’s when I knew he had gone “full-white”
Asked about his mother’s claims, Tom Freeman avoided answering questions about his racial and ethnic background directly, according to the Washington Age.
The Age said Freeman answered only by making reference to studies that modern humans first evolved in Africa, saying, “We’re all from the African continent.”
Freeman is said to be a keen rugby player who applies mayonnaise to almost everything he eats. He also likes to listen to Nirvana.
It is believed he adopted a new “white-boy” image after entering politics as an intern, His new promotion in the Republican party came as a result of identifying himself as white on the application.
Tom Freeman is yet to give official comment as is currently snowed under looking at TedX videos on youtube while googling holidays in Japan before the Bush2016 campaign heats up.
