Today's Show: Are We Cowards on Race?

3:30 ET, Gay and Lesbian Adolescent Social Services, a group that has operated in Los Angeles as a lifeline for LGBT youth, is shutting its doors today, having filed for bankruptcy. And its executive director may lose her home to creditors. The economic crisis is now digging deep into LGBT service groups and taking down gay leaders. Teresa DeCrescenzo, Executive Director of the GLASS, will join me to talk about her and GLASS's horrific situation, one that is likely to play out across the country.

4:30 ET Pam Spaulding of PamsHouseBlend will join me again to continue our discussion on race in the Obama era, focusing in particular on Attorney General Holder's speech last week in which he stated that we are all "cowards" when it comes to race.
