    But some of us also would think the 0% African American percentage is much more important to work on.

    And as a Californian it would be tons more of a priority to have a Latino Senator than a white female, "all things being equal".  Same goes for an Asian American.

    Put another way, CA has had two white female Senators for a couple decades.  It's not like we don't know how to elect white females Senator.  CA also had an Asian man as Senator.  

    In terms of the nation, the Senate needs African Americans more than anything.  In terms of California Democrats, a Latino senator would be at the top of the list, and all things being equal, a Latina would be best... but if her politics suck, that matters more.
