There are 100 senators.

Ronald Burris (D) Illinois is black

Mel Martinez (R) Florida was born in Cuba

Daniel Inouye (D) Hawaii is of Japanese descent

Daniel Akaka (D) Hawaii is of Chinese and Native Hawaiian descent

Many Senators are of Jewish or part Jewish descent.

If you consider Jews to be white, that makes 96 senators.
