A multi-racial group of female activists, journalists, and educators have been debating who should get to be America's "first" in the Oval Office — a black person or a woman.

Kimberle Crenshaw joins Farai Chideya to discuss her response to Gloria Steinem's controversial op-ed and this ongoing debate. Crenshaw is a professor of law at UCLA and Columbia University.
