Obviously every black historic figure wasn't mention in the black history thread. As you acknowledged, Revels and Rainey were mentioned in that thread, which would indicate that there is an awareness of black people's role in the Republican party. This has also been discussed repeatedly on this board, in an effort to show that the Reps are the party of equality. So, I'm not sure how/why anyone would believe black people are unaware of this.

First mention of Senator Revels came on Feb. 25th on page 22. First House member Rainey was mentioned on Feb. 28th. None of the others on my list were mentioned. So I will maintain that these guys are not common knowledge for their contributions.

I believe Texas will now be putting them in school textbooks.
