“The Congressman-elect is a bright mulatto of good address. He is an effective stump-speaker, and is very popular with his race, while enjoying the friendship of many white people in his district. He is very ambitious to do something toward elevating his race, and he will be pretty sure to be heard from when the new Congress assembles.”
Harper’s Weekly, March 2, 1889
The Honorable Henry Plummer Cheatham (R-NC), the only African American member of Congress in 1889. Cheatham, a graduate of historic Shaw University, served in Congress from 1889 to 1893.

I’m having 2008 election flashbacks when people (including his current VP Biden) said similar shit about Obama. Like over 100 years later.
