Lawmakers with diversity- the USA on a roll
It wouldn’t be wrong to term the recent electorate as diverse, to say the least. And after hearing so much negativity in today’s time, citizens embraced all forms of positive news. For instance, when news regarding the USA on a roll broke out, it was simply unbelievable.
The national polls gave rise to the first ‘trans-state’ senator. And this is truly a new form of history in the making. At the same time, citizens also voted for the nation’s first-ever ‘black’ gay congressman too. But wait, there is more!
Moreover, the election polls also showed how the USA backed up the QAnon Conspiracy Theory. How’s that for some much-needed change!
Meet Sarah McBride
While all of the 4 members of congresswoman of color were re-elected, one news stood out amid all others. There was a single name that resounded across the board. And that name was Sarah McBride by miles.
Sarah turned into the talk of the town immediately, with social media blowing up with the explosive news. She is the first-ever ‘trans-state’ senator for the United State of America. It was a massive win for the transgender community too. Once considered as a minority, the win is turning situations around for the better.
Sarah swept her victory in Delaware, turning her into the highest-ranked trans official ever. On the other hand, the 30-year-old decided to celebrate her triumph with a great speech. She explained how the results paved way for others, ensuring support for LGBTQ kids.
Sarah easily won over Steve Washington to represent Delaware’s senate.
Fairness and equality wins
Today, the USA is on a roll for several other reasons. Recent statistics showed how people were voting for fairness and equal rights. And truly, there’s nothing better than that. The news doubled when Vermont gave rise to its first-ever trans legislator too- Taylor Small.
It’s news like this that gives people more hope of a better tomorrow. And the fact that they’re accepting change is beyond amazing. ‘It’s a historic moment for myself, as well as for those from the community,’ Small explained.
‘Every win is a historic one’
Undoubtedly, there are very few people in power that arise from minorities. And therefore, critics and those who win are calling these wins as ‘historic.’ And why not, it’s so rare that it needs to be celebrated.
Meanwhile, America’s Congress is getting some more great news. Ritchie Torres is going to be a city councilor. But he isn’t going to an ordinary one. He is getting plenty of fame for being the first-ever Afro- Latino ‘gay elect.’ Imagine grabbing ahold of New York’s 15th district.
News reports explained how Ritchie was a clear standout amid all others. He is also the youngest ever member elected in NYC. And his heartwarming story of coming from the Bronx is inspiring.
Could this be the change US citizens always wished to see? Only time can tell. And until then, the country is busy celebrating with great fervor of the USA on a roll.
