Trevor Noah says firing people for blackface controversies "doesn't solve the problem"

"Daily Show" host Trevor Noah continues to make his mark on late night comedy. He recently introduced viewers to his grandmother in his hometown of Johannesburg to discuss his childhood under apartheid. His grandma said she used to be scared police would take Noah because he was mixed race and interracial relationships were illegal. Noah shares how his family kept him hidden in his memoir, "Born A Crime: Stories from a South African Childhood." Noah joins "CBS This Morning" to weigh in on blackface controversies surrounding Virginia lawmakers.
