Texas Republican Representative Wesley Hunt slammed Democrats during a recent appearance on the Tim Pool podcast for their obsession with accusing Republicans of racism.
Hunt pointed out that he was elected in a predominantly white district and defeated several white candidates based solely on the ideas he ran on, not the color of his skin.
Democrats have always relied on false accusations of racism against Republicans, but that really intensified during the Obama years. Since then, the Republican Party has only become more racially diverse.

Rep. Wesley Hunt rips Democrats’ attacks on GOP: ‘You can’t call us racists’
In a clip from Friday’s Timcast IRL that scored more than a million views Monday night, Hunt accused Democrats of “running away calling the Republican Party racist.”
“And then someone like me comes along and decides to run for Congress,” he said.
Seeing how his experience goes against that portrayal, Hunt turned to his own district in Houston.
“I live in a district that President Trump would have won by 23 points (and) I ended up winning by 30 points,” he said. “And in the Republican primary, I beat 9 whites. In the general election, I beat a white man by 30 points…I outplayed the president…and this is a majority white district.” …
“I wake up every day and I’m living the dream of Martin Luther King: I’m literally judged by the content of my character, not the color of my skin,” he added.

Democrats could use a history lesson.
The Republican Party was founded to end slavery in the United States, and the first seven black men to serve in Congress were all Republicans.
