South African comedian, Trevor Noah did a sit down interview with President Barack Obama in the White House and - in this six minute clip - the pair speak about different ways to take part in a race dialogue as a leader, who is also a person of colour.

Trevor starts off by saying that it's sometimes difficult to talk about race saying, "If you are a white person speaking about race then you are just person who is interested in race if you are a person of colour speaking about race then it's 'oh the black thing started again'."

The comedian asks the president how he addressed the issue during his term.
