No African-Americans in new U.S. Senate *Edit*

Well last night the power shifted in America once again. And while I feel no one party should have all that power, be it democrat or republican I can't help but feel that a lot of votes were casted via misguided anger. People are obviously mad at the state the country is in right now. And hey I don't blame them. However I got to say were we any better several years ago? I'd say we have come a very long way, but we're a people of instant gratification. So in other words since "The Magic Negro" didn't wave his wand and "Change" everything over night, lets give the keys back to the guys that put us in this bad situation.

Do you know what the definition of insanity is? Doing something repeatly, while expectinig different results. Yet I'm not even mad at that. It is what it is. What does bug me is that as of last night the senate has absolutely no African American Reps. Like seriously, none! I just felt that is pretty....well....weird.

For the first time in several years, the U.S. Senate will not include an African-American.

Three black candidates for the U.S. Senate were shut out Tuesday. The only incumbent African-American, Roland Burris (D-IL), retired.

Democrat Mike Thurmond was defeated by Republican incumbent Johnny Isakson in Georgia. Kendrick Meek (D-FL) and Alvin Greene (D-SC) also came up short.

There’s only been six African-Americans in the U.S. Senate: three Republicans and three Democrats, including President Barack Obama (D-IL).
