Rhode Island state Representative Patricia Morgan, a white Republican, set off a fire storm on Twitter after posting a tweet stating that a black friend has become “hostile and unpleasant,” and she attributed the change in behavior to the effects of critical race theory.

Morgan introduced a bill last year in the Democrat-controlled General Assembly banning the teaching of “divisive concepts” and making anyone “feel discomfort, guilty, anguish or any distress on account of their race or sex,” the Boston Globe reported. As might be expected, the legislation did not move.

The lawmaker spoke with the Globe and stood by her tweet, which read: “I had a black friend. I liked her and I think she liked me, too. But now she is hostile and unpleasant. I am sure I didn’t do anything to her, except be white. Is that what teachers and our political leaders really want for our society? Divide us because of our skin color?”

The tweet included the hashtag #CRT, which stands for critical race theory, of course.

Morgan told the Globe that the negative reaction to her tweet — which included a lot of emphasize on her saying she had “a black friend” — was more proof of the insidious nature of critical race theory.

Twitter is a cesspool anyway,” she said, adding, “I have more than one friend who is not white.”

And while she declined to identify the friend she referenced in her tweet, Morgan told the Globe that friend subscribes to critical race theory and she believes that is what turned the friend against her, “and perhaps other white people.” 

“I just felt we weren’t friends anymore, because she doesn’t want to be friends anymore,” she said, according to the newspaper. “I’m positive it’s because of my skin color. And that’s a shame.”

The divisive nature of judging one another by the color of one’s skin, with the understanding that white people are inherently racist and seen as oppressors, which is precisely what critical race theory teaches, would certainly bring about such results.

Former Attorney General  Eric Holder, a man who looks at life through the prism of color, once said the United States remains “a nation of cowards” on issues involving race, and the reaction to Morgan’s tweet — led by the usual race-baiting suspects — represents a good example why most white people avoid the topic like the plague.

In an attempt to paint Morgan as a racist, social media users mischaracterized her tweet to imply that the Republican had one lone black friend. Then again, American cities have burned as a result of such misplaced dramatics — Kenosha, Wisc., being a recent example.

Twitter being what it is, the hashtag #IHadAWhiteFriend soon began trending, permeated with entries by those who see America first and foremost as an irredeemably racist nation:


But, alas, there still remains hope for a better tomorrow:
