So many people have thrown their hat into the race for the White House it can be hard to keep up sometimes. Roland Martin talks to Julian Castro who believes it’s time for a shift in “energy” at the White House.

Julian Castro, who served as the secretary of HUD under the Obama administration, believes it’s time for new leadership, and new “energy” in the white house. Castro believes he can bring about positive change, like increasing Black home ownership, and increasing funding to HBCUs.
