No, I don't. I know I was never informed about this - in school or afterwards.

Have you found any black Republicans currently serving in Congress yet?

Republicans were progressive back then, they are not now.

Considering I grew up in a urban area and celebrate Black History month every year, ah NO not hidden. But good attempt either way.

When back in the day, the democrates were in charge, if a black was a republican---there chances of dying was high. Wilson eliminated blacks in power and promoted KKK. It was the progressive democrates who tried to make important history disappear, especially the great accomplishments of blacks.

The era that was killing black republicans and I'm sure the stories thru families help put the mindset that being a democrate is the best(safest)way to go. The democrates were also against the civil rights movement in the 60's. By everything I have researched, they are using them now to support their sick agenda. They don't realize that the same type of democrate today is exactly like the ones from 100 years ago.

Today on Beck---how blacks were very much involved with the founders. Another piece of history made to disappear.

100 years ago-- The chances of a white or black republican on dying was very high back then, from the hands of progressive democrates. So if a republican was progressive---he was probably spared his life.

Way to go, Glenn

Not sure if you saw/wanted to see the comments above, that information about the black Republicans has never been hidden or "made to disappear".

Did Glenn get to the part where the Dixiecrats became Republicans, yet?

Wonder when he will

Things have changed.
