Many people know that women make 77 cents to the dollar compared to men. But did you know that African-American women make just 64 cents to the dollar, and Hispanic women make just 56 cents? One group offers an interesting way to fix this.

I just don’t understand why all of these posts ignore that the racial pay gap also impacts men of color.

I honestly believe that this oversight is on purpose because nobody wants to acknowledge that Black and Latino and Native men are being paid less than white WOMEN. Because that would totally re-frame this pay gap conversation if it was widely acknowledged. And suddenly, there would be NO reason for white women to be front and center.

White people always wanna preach about “sharing cultures” but last time i checked, they spent half their existence sailing around the world murdering people for being different and brainwashing people to stop practicing their owns cultures while forcing assimilation to white culture.

Now you want everyone to happily “share” with you. LOL fuck outta here.

honestly when white vegans talk about the exploitation of animals without acknowledging the exploitation of humans in the food industry it’s clear that they don’t give a shit about people of color

Misty Upham.

Remember her name and face.

Too many Native women don’t get their stories shared. Too many Native women are forgotten. 

Remember her. Remember them.

Rest in peace, Misty.

liberal social justice is saying “don’t discriminate against poor people” instead of “why are people poor in the fucking first place”

quasi-normalcy:

Capitalism loves science when it’s used to develop new technologies or new means of extracting resources.

Capitalism is indifferent to science when it works on things which can’t be directly commercialized.

Capitalism really hates science when it investigates environmental degradation, or when it points out that the economy is running headlong into a brick wall of resource limitation.

shoutout to all the girls + women who have thick, dark, and abundant body hair and have to spend time and energy shaving every single day if they don’t want to be harassed by loved ones + strangers alike

shoutout to all the girls + women who decided its not worth their time, even if they only skip sometimes, and endure criticism, harassment, and stigma as the price for their own freedom of time + comfort
