The newly elected members of the Senate are meant to be an embodiment of the American people and representative of our diverse nation, as a whole. However, out of the 100 individuals that will make up the Senate, 91 of them are white, 3 are Hispanic, 2 are African American, 1 is Asian American, and there are no Native American representatives. Within such a diverse nation with such a large variance in racial and ethnic identities, are these members of the new senate representative of the entirety of the United States?
Hi Lauren, you may want to add the other 3 members whose race is unknown (or if you know it, add that) to this chart so the percentages line up.
What about gender distinctions? savvyroo.com/chart-1310121521…
How about look at the congress, all the new Black, Female and Young REPUBLICANS who just were elected to office. Folks are happily learning; it is indeed OK to leave the plantation:)
That was a particularly offensive phrasing of your comment... However, after reviewing the midterm election results the Republicans elected 2 white women to the Senate, the rest were men. I definitely do not think the Republican party is the bastion of electing women and minorities to office. The Democrats, losing most of their elections were still able to elect a black man and a white woman. These people's names are Joni Ernst, Shelley Capito, Cory Booker, and Jeanne Shaheen respectively, in case you want to fact check. :)
