Article never says Bethea is African-American[edit]

The article does not say that Bethea is African-American. Until it does she should not be so categorized.John Pack Lambert (talk) 00:55, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

So add it. Ellen is most definitely African-American. Removing necessary info is borderline vandalism and makes no sense. Donmike10 (talk) 01:00, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

You are free to add it. I do not know that Bethea is African-American. Articles should not be categorized unless the thing they are categorized as is mentioned in the text.John Pack Lambert (talk) 01:03, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

The one listed source does not say that Bethea is African-American.John Pack Lambert (talk) 01:04, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

So don't add it, but please stop the vandalism. Either way, you are removing valuable info simply because you don't agree with it. It's not cool. Donmike10 (talk) 01:06, 12 December 2012 (UTC)

  • If it is not mentioned in the sources, than it is not acceptable to so categorize the person. Removing someone from a category not mentioned in the sources is not vandalism. It is the basic requirement of the categorizing rules of wikipedia.John Pack Lambert (talk) 02:08, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
  • If you chose to add the category again, please add some mention of the person being African-American in the article. If the article does not say the person is African-American, the category should not be present.John Pack Lambert (talk) 02:10, 12 December 2012 (UTC)
