If humans were in the picture, this would be called a genocide, a holocaust. The people in charge would be called evil, their acts: Torture and murder. But because this is happening to animals who are not humans, it is seen as “farming”, “the circle of life”, and worst of all: “Normal”.
This is NOT acceptable.
In our current socioeconomic model unsustainability, excess waste and environmental devastation aren’t just unfortunate anomalies, they are inherent. Any advocacy for change that looks to operate within the constructs of capitalism is completely futile, and any change will be minimal at best.
This earth day we should focus on exposing the inherent flaws of our current system and advocate a shift in paradigm in which a new system that is based upon renewablility, sustainability, resource management and environmental protection emerges.
Men make $1.22 for every woman’s $1.
It interests me that even the most common simple measure of gender inequality is firmly based on male-as-normative …
this is an interesting point, although mathematically inaccurate: assuming the women:men, 0.78:1 ratio is correct, men make $1.28 for every woman’s $1
A white man makes $1.34 for every dollar that a black man makes
A white man makes $1.52 for every dollar that a latino man makes
A white man makes $1.24 for every dollar that a white woman makes
A white man makes $1.44 for every dollar that a black woman makes
A white man makes $1.67 for every dollar that a latina woman makes
That’s some bullshit right there.
Let’s take it a step further. For every hour a white man works, a black woman has to work 86 minutes to earn as much money. 57.6 hours a week compared to the white man’s 40.
Take it another step further. Assuming a Monday through Friday, 9 to 5 job, from Thursday 12:45pm through Friday end of business, a white man gets paid for his work, a black woman is, by comparison, working for free.
THE LAST LINE
This. I am tired of seing this numbers without thinking about woc. (via arobynsong)
and now, imagine the number for a Black Latina. i struggle w/even attempting to make that math work out b/c i think i’m trying to protect myself from what kind of harm that may bring to me at this moment, as an unemployed LatiNegra in the US.
