Welcome to Ask a Libertarian 2012 with Reason's Nick Gillespie and Matt
Welch. They are the authors of the book The Declaration of Independents:
How Libertarian Politics Can Fix What's Wrong With America, coming out in
paperback later this month. Pre-order:

On June 12, 2012 Gillespie and Welch used short, rapid-fire videos to
answer dozens of reader questions submitted via email, Twitter, Facebook,
and Reason.com.

In this episode, they answer the question:
"Where are the black people? Or any other minorities? When I saw you guys at the book signing in Chicago -- a city that hasn't been majority white for some time -- I could only see one non-white person in the room, and I think he was the rep from the bookstore. Why do so few minorities identify themselves as libertarians? And what can we do about it?"

Produced by Meredith Bragg, Jim Epstein, Josh Swain, and Tracy Oppenheimer
with help from Katie Hooks.
