program date: 
Wed, 08/05/2009

Last month, President Obama sat down over beers with a Cambridge cop and a Harvard professor to talk about an ugly incident that brought home how deep racial tensions still run in our nation. The president saw the arrest of Henry Louis Gates, Jr. by Sgt. James Crowly as a "teachable moment" that could help Americans in their struggle to understand race and its impacts. But can talking about race make a difference?

What would you do if your son insisted on wearing a dress to school?  What if your baby girl insisted she was a boy?  It seems transgender children are coming out earlier and earlier, but the situation raises endless questions: is their cross-gender identification is just a phase?  How can parents support gender identity?  How young is “too young” to transition from one gender to another? At what point should parents seek medical intervention?  What are the ramifications of suppressing or countering the biological changes inherent in puberty?  Should surgery even be considered when dealing with children?  Where can trans-identified youth go to get medical assistance?

An interview with the Urban League's Midge Purcell about their report on the state of Black Oregon.

Seven months after the inauguration of the first Black president, a statewide report on the condition of African Americans in Oregon reveals that black Oregonians remain at or near the bottom of every meaningful social and economic measure. African Americans in Oregon have significantly higher infant mortality rates, are more likely to live in poverty, have higher levels of unemployment, are half as likely to own their own homes and are far more likely to die of diseases such as diabetes than their white counterparts.
