The GOP has found the ideal presidential candidate -- a man with a multiracial pedigree -- and the Democrats are scrambling to find someone with a more diverse bloodline to appeal to voters. That's the basis of Christopher Chen's new play, "Mutt: Let's All Talk About Race!," playing at the Impact Theatre in Berkeley and co-produced with the Ferocious Lotus Theatre Company. Chen and director Evren Odcikin join us to talk about what happens when elections, race and political correctness collide.
