Oprah on Race in America

"Lee Daniels' The Butler" not only tells the story of a butler who served eight U.S. presidents, it also tells the story of America's civil rights movement. The film features one of the most hated and controversial words in the English language.

Oprah Winfrey and the "n" word

Oprah Winfrey's new movie "Lee Daniels' The Butler" is sparking a new debate over the use of the "n” word. Oprah told Anderson that she doesn't use it partly because that was the last word some of her ancestors heard when "they were strung up to a tree." But plenty of other people use it freely. Wolf discussed this with B.E.T. editorial brand manager Michaela Angela Davis, and Andre Perry, the founding dean of urban education at Davenport University.

Is the N.J. medical marijuana decision a victory for the Wilson family?

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie wants to change the state’s medical marijuana laws. The proposal would allow qualified children to get edible forms of marijuana under certain conditions.  Brian Wilson, whose daughter suffers from a rare and life-threatening form of epilepsy, pushed for the change. Earlier this week, he confronted Gov. Christie face-to-face on the issue. Wilson says today’s decision by the governor is a victory for his family, but not all patients in New Jersey.  Wolf spoke with Wilson and chief medical correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta.
