30 Years Later, Vincent Chin Seen As Turning Point

Vincent Chin was at his bachelor party in Detroit in 1982 when he got into a brawl with two white men. Witnesses say the men mistook him for being Japanese and used racial slurs. Chin was killed, but the two men never served time. Frank Wu speaks with host Michel Martin about how Chin's death became a catalyst for Asian-American activists.
