Youth March Robert speaks with NPR's Margot Adler, who reports on a decision issued today by a New York judge that allows the so-called Million Youth March to take place this Saturday in Harlem. Organizers went to court after city officials denied a request for a permit, citing the anti-Jewish, anti-white rhetoric of march organizer Khalid Muhamed. Muhamed had vowed to go ahead with the march with or without a permit, raising concerns about possible violent clashes with police. The NYPD stormed forward at the end of a similar event last year, sparking a scuffle that caused a number of injuries. Unlike last year, many black political leaders in New York are opposed to holding a second such event in Harlem.
