Today on the Signorile Show

3:35pm ET - Jason Silverstein, a Doctoral Candidate in the Department of Anthropology at Harvard University,  joins us to discuss a piece he'd written over at Slate.com, I Don't Feel Your Pain, which explores the empathy gap that exists toward people of color and how that perpetrates racial inequality.

4:35pm ET - Today, the Supreme Court, which began its new term yesterday, heard the case of McCutcheon v. the Federal Election Commission, which looks at the cap set for aggregate federal campaign contributions for the 2014 election cycle.  Paul Blumenthal of Huffington Post was in the courtroom during arguments today and joins us to talk about this case and the impact it could have on future contributions.
