COLOR REPORT FOUR:Malaysia's ethnic Indians protest (5:00)

I report from Kuala Lumpur as part of my series on the role of color and culture in shaping national identities.The Color Initiative is funded by the Ford Foundation, with additional resources provided by the Massachusetts Foundation for the Humanities and the Funding Exchange (Paul Robeson Fund).
