Julie Lythcott-Haims has written a powerful memoir of poetic prose about growing up as the daughter of a white mother and African-American father. A former Stanford dean who lives and writes in California, Lythcott-Haims describes what she calls the micro-aggressions and blunt insults she experienced growing up in largely white communities. She reads excerpts from her new book, "Real American," including one about a white Baltimore police officer who married a black woman. She also talks about Donald J. Trump, Colin Kaepernick and the National Football League.
