  •  Any AA's in other States? Why Illinois? (0+ / 0-)

    We have elected 2 of the 3 AA Senators, since Reconstruction.  Carol Mosely-Braun and Barack Obama.  Obama does not play the race card.

    Race is not a factor in Illinois electing AA Senators!

    The argument that Obama's Senate seat is ridiculous.  The argument that Burris must be seated because the Senate hasn't got another AA is also ridiculous.

    Don't other States have an African-American population?  Don't they have 'qualified' AA's?  What about all the rest of you States, can't you see beyond race and become as progressive as Illinois?
