Host Tavis Smiley talks with regular commentator Connie Rice about how media and society react very differently to the misdeeds of people such as John Walker, the 20-year-old Californian who joined with al Qaeda in Afghanistan, than they do to young men of color accused of crimes. Connie Rice is co-founder and director of the Advancement Project.
