Lower-income stigma embodied in 'poor door'

In her weekly open letter, host Melissa Harris-Perry addresses Gary Barnett, founder and president of an NYC development company whose new building will have a separate entrance for lower-income tenants: "What might feel good, Mr. Barnett, is that when they are able to access affordable housing, they don't have to enter through a separate door. That their home doesn't reinforce the idea that having less means being less."
