Only two blacks were newly elected to congress this cycle, and both are Republican. Ret. Army Lt. Colonel Allen West is from southern Florida, a bastion of the Democratic Party. He won in a walk. Check this out.
This new Congressman was an extremely popular commander in Iraq. He was forced to retire because during an intense combat action a few of his men were captured. At the same time his men had captured one of the guys who were with the Iraqis who captured his men.
Knowing that time was crucial and his interrogators were not getting anywhere with the prisoner, Colonel West took matters into his own hands. He burst into the room and demanded through an interpreter that the prisoner tell him where his men were being taken. The prisoner refused so Colonel West took out his pistol and placed it into the prisoner's crotch and fired. Then, the Colonel told the prisoner that the next shot would not miss. So the prisoner said he would show where the American service members were being taken. The Americans were rescued. Someone filed a report on incorrect handling of prisoners. Colonel West was forced to retire. Colonel West was just elected in November 2010 to Congress from Florida. During the elections he was part of a panel on how to handle or how to relate to Muslims. You will see his answer here.
Here is one of the new congressmen from Florida explaining very definitively in just over a minute the truth about Islam.
