The BP oil disaster in the Gulf of Mexico has now, according to new estimates, become the nation's biggest oil spill in history. Yet instead of deploying help to the Gulf, President Obama is sending troops to the U.S./Mexico border. As Maya Wiley of the Center for Social Inclusion notes, it's an election year, and that means it's pandering time. Maya joins us in studio to discuss the ongoing issues of race politics in the country, from Arizona to D.C., and explain that we really need an honest conversation about these issues now, not electioneering.
