Ralph Nader

Kojo talks with Nader about the state of political activism in the U.S., and how Washington has changed at the federal and local levels since Nader first arrived in 1964.

Longtime political activist Ralph Nader talks about his two-year, $11 million proposal to achieve statehood for the District of Columbia. "There's something lacking in the psychology here in the District that allows this colonial situation to persist," Nader said.
