Only black US senator to leave

Senate’s only African-American preparing to leave his post, with no black candidate to replace him.

With just one week to go before the US midterm elections, Roland Burris, the Senate’s only African-American member is preparing to leave his post.

No black representative is expected to replace him.

His leaving has raised the question of how a nation in which blacks make up 13 per cent of the population can have none in its upper legislative chamber?
