Tavis Smiley talks with Dr. Martha Burk, chair of the National Council of Women's Organizations, a group that's been pressuring Augusta to admit women, regular sports commentator George Johnson, and Peter Roby, Director of Northeastern University's Center for the Study of Sport in Society, about whether athletes of color are held to a higher standard as role models.
