Al-Amin Trial

Host Tavis Smiley hears the opinion of regular commentator, professor Eric Michael Dyson, about the jury selection for the murder trial of Jamil Abdullah Al-Amin, formerly known as H. Rap Brown. Dyson feels that the jury selection, in which no white males were picked, was fair and wants people to give African Americans credit that they can be unbiased when judging a black defendant.
