The Fight For Civil Rights Beyond Don't Ask, Don't Tell

As Barack Obama signed the repeal of Don't Ask, Don't Tell, it was almost like he was on the campaign trail again, talking about the values of pluralism that this country is built on. Rachel Maddow speaks with Princeton professor and Nation columnist Melissa Harris-Perry about how central civil rights and social justice issues will be to the success or failure of the Obama presidency, and the fight for equal rights that faces queer people in the US beyond the repeal of Don't Ask Don't Tell. 

Watch the clip, then read Melissa Harris-Perry's new article, "Obama in the Age of Accommodation."
