We spend the hour with Eugene Jarecki, director of "The House I Live In", a tale of the impact of the war on drugs on Black people and the US' development as a prison state. Jarecki explores the history of the war on drugs, how it's been used against oppressed nationalities in the past and today. He explores what he calls "a slow holocaust" and the warning signs of an encroaching genocide. "The House I Live In" won the Grand Jury Prize, Documentary Division at the 2012 Sundance Film Festival.
