    Where is the Black democrat Senator?

    Seems the FIRST since 1970 from the SoUTH and is a GOPer!

    Scott, in his remarks after Haley, emphasized fiscal conservatism and praised DeMint and the people who made him the person he is today — most importantly his mother.
    He will become just the seventh African-American to serve in the Senate and the first black senator from the South since the 1880s.

    Nikki Haley appoints Rep. Tim Scott to Senate

    I would assume Scott was one of the ONLY 4% of Blacks that didn't vote for Obama!

    Oh, in case some of you also don't know it... Nikki Haley.. by the way.. she's a woman AND
    Haley was born Nimrata Nikki Randhawa in Bamberg, South Carolina, on January 20, 1972, to a Sikh family. Her parents, Dr. Ajit Singh Randhawa and Raj Kaur Randhawa, are Sikh immigrants from Amritsar District, Punjab, India.
    WOW and I thought ONLY liberals were the only "big tent" people!
    Seems like people like Haley, Jindahl, part of GOP now.. what happened Dems??

    Obama IS NOT a full black! Sorry. Maybe YOU missed the memo his mom was white!
    Scott.. he has slave blood and Obama doesn't!
    Scott's from the south... Obama Northerner!

    So again... where are the Black Democrat Senators!! Never has been any !

    Edward Brooke was the first black elected to the Senate by popular vote and represented Massachusetts for two terms, from 1967 to 1979. He championed mass transit, low-income housing and a higher minimum wage.

    _Carol Moseley Braun of Illinois became the first and only female black senator, serving one term, 1993 to 1999. She was a prosecutor before winning political office and called for more restrictive gun laws during her tenure. Defeated in her first re-election bid, she later was U.S. ambassador to New Zealand and Samoa.

    _Barack Obama of Illinois was elected but his half white!

    Again no one from the south!!

    Any particular reason you left out Hiram Rhodes Revels and Blanche Kelso Bruce -- from Mississippi? Or that Carol Mosely Braun, who you did mention, was also a Democrat?

    If you're actually running around making lists of whose blood contains how much from Africa short-term rather than long-term, well good luck with that boring quest, especially on finding what the point is. And if you are going to plant your flag on that kind of pedantry, you can't get any further south than Hawai`i. Check your globe.

    I'm not the one that first brought up Obama being half white!
    Morgan Freeman: Obama's not our first black president – The Marquee Blog - CNN.com Blogs

    Morgan Freeman: Obama's not our first black president

    The actor told NPR's "Tell Me More" host Michel Martin in an interview posted Thursday that "the first thing" that he thinks of when he thinks of Obama is "all of the people who are setting up this barrier for him," Morgan said.


    "They just conveniently forget that Barack had a mama, and she was white - very white American, Kansas, middle America," the Oscar winner continued. "There was no argument about who he is or what he is. America's first black president hasn't arisen yet. He's not America's first black president - he's America's first mixed-race president."
