Host David Kestenbaum talks with NPR's Julie McCarthy from Geneva, Switzerland, where representatives are meeting to set the agenda for the upcoming U.N. conference on racism. The conference begins in South Africa at the end of August, but U.S. President Bush has threatened a boycott if the program includes language that defines Zionism as a form of racism.
