Merge / Duplicate entries[edit]

(content moved)I think this is a useful list, but I have to point out that it already exists almost in complete form at African Americans in the United States Congress. I don't know if the proper form is to remove the info from there and put it here, in full (with style changes), or merge it from here into there. But there should not be duplicate, and possibly unsynchronized lists. LH (talk) 20:19, 25 January 2009 (UTC) See Talk:African Americans in the United States Congress.

Added history[edit]

Discussions of African Americans or Republicans elected from the South after a gap of decades (and in some cases nearly 100 years) must have history added about the South's disfranchising constitutions and exclusion of African Americans from the political system. It wasn't a casual matter of party preference. I've added that.Parkwells (talk) 17:20, 5 November 2014 (UTC)
