Rep. Eric Swalwell (D-CA) slid into Texas Republican congressional candidate Wesley Hunt’s direct messages to proceed with a social media debate over the implications of Roe v. Wade for interracial marriage, the two men affirmed, according to the Washington Examiner.

In response to a bombshell leak from the Supreme Court proposing that a reversal of Roe may be imminent, some proponents of the legalized abortion nationwide claimed its reversal might lead to states outlawing birth control or same-sex interracial marriage.

Swalwell made that claim in a recent tweet.

Hunt, who is Black, responded that the Texas district that nominated him is predominantly White, and he has an interracial marriage and family.

“Republicans are celebrating diversity while White Liberals like yourself race-bait,” Hunt wrote.

Swalwell responded that Hunt’s problem should lie with a Republican senator who announced that “states should be able to ban interracial marriages like yours.”

Hunt explained to the Washington Examiner, “I saw that, and as somebody that is in an interracial marriage, that won a Republican primary in a district that is 70% white, with biracial children, I felt like that was utterly ridiculous to accuse, like, an entire party of people of being racist and against biracial marriages. And I called him out on it.”

In a video posted to Instagram, Hunt’s campaign said Swalwell’s remarks were “race-baiting.”

Swalwell sent a private message in response to tagging the video.

“You’re more pissed at me than the senator who wants to break up your marriage?” Swalwell wrote in a screenshot of the message obtained by the Washington Examiner. “Classic. You’ll fit right in with the GOP.” Swalwell confirmed he sent the private message in response to being tagged in the video on Instagram.

“He has not responded, and I’m not surprised,” Swalwell explained, according to the Washington Examiner. “How would you respond to that? Hunt is either lying to himself about what a GOP senator proposed and what it would mean for his family, or he’s too afraid to confront it.”

Hunt stated, “I’ve been Black my entire life,” and that he felt a white man was lecturing him on race.

“The first thing I would say to him is this: Be very careful with how you speak about racial issues when speaking with people of color,” Hunt announced. “Just because you’re a white man, that doesn’t mean that you know more about this than me because you’ve never been black a day in your life. And I would like to think you would benefit from the doubt as to how I can think for myself, given my own personal set of experiences.”
