"Minority" Banned in San Diego

Host Bob Edwards talks with George Stevens, San Diego Deputy Mayor, who introduced a resolution to eliminate the word "minority" from all official city documents and discussions. Stevens, an African American, suggests "minority" is a word of subtle discrimination employed by whites. The resolution was approved by the San Diego City Council this month.
