In this episode state representative Malcolm Kenyatta, a Democrat from Philadelphia, talks about his background and his current campaign for the U.S. Senate.
Kenyatta, 31, discusses growing up in a low-income family in North Philadelphia; coming out as gay to his mother at age 16; the "basic bargain" he believes isn't being lived up to in America; and the cynical way he says politicians and the media manipulate and divide people. "Far too many elected officials treat this like it's a damn game show. This is not TV. This is people's lives."
