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.

this is what I see when I see white kids dress up like pinup girls and greasers

Which is why I don’t respect any of them
The Snoop Dogg/Iggy Azalea beef illuminates the intersectionality burdens that black feminists face when it comes to Hip Hop.
Either we’re forced to excuse Snoop’s misogynistic comments towards Iggy because we’re black, or we’re forced to defend Iggy because we’re women…when they’re both wrong.
And misogyny was never an issue in regards to any black female rappers, but when it’s a white female rapper, the world capes for her.
There’s levels to this.
White women are paid more than men of colour on average.
Most men in the world are men of colour.
Ergo, white women are paid more than most men.
But they never want to mention that.
ok but what’s with that fucked up url?
White women: Spectacularly missing the point of everything since the dawn of time
The ‘victim’ approach to the study of white women in the slave formation, therefore, has severe limitations… while white males were the predominant owners of slaves in the plantation sector, the same cannot be said for the urban sector. White women were generally the owners of small properties, rather than large estates, but their small properties were more proportionately stocked with slaves than the large, male owned properties.
In 1815, white women owned about 24 percent of the slaves in St Lucia; 12 per cent of the slaves on properties of more than 50 slaves, and 48 per cent of the properties with less than 10 slaves. In Barbados in 1817, less than five of the holdings of 50 slaves or more were owned by white women, but they owned 40 percent of the properties with less than 10 slaves…
White women also owned more female slaves than male slaves. The extensive female ownership of slaves in the towns was matched by the unusually high proportion of females in the slave population; female slave owners owned more female slaves than male slave owners….
From these data the image that emerges of the white female slaveowner is that she was generally urban, in possession of less than ten slaves, the majority of whom were female. That female slaveowners generally owned female slaves, indicates the nature of enterprises, and hence labour regimes, managed and owned by white women. It is reasonable, then, to argue that any conceptualization of urban slavery, especially with reference to the experiences of enslaved black women, should proceed with an explicit articulation of white women are principal slaveowners.

White feminists tend to conveniently forget this and pretend that they don’t benefit from white supremacy like white men (via thisisnotjapan)
why are ppl compelled to let you know they like a woman’s work, but personally they don’t find her attractive like “nicki minaj is a great rapper, but i would never fuck her” okay you would never fuck her like you’d never have the chance so okay then
Bc even when people can’t avoid acknowledging a woman’s accomplishments, they still think of her as something that exists primarily to be pretty and fuckable.
man, it just would never work. she’s the most popular girl in school and i’m….i’m…..i’m just doug dimmadome, owner of the dimmsdale dimmadome

my buddy gab does an advice segment on the school announcements but today we were on a field trip so we filmed a special edition one and the results were unexpected
just remember that had voldemort picked neville to kill instead of harry and nevile was the boy who lived/the chosen one if neville had that lightening bolt scar severus snape would still be a death eater
it’s not like he thought being a death eater was wrong — it wasn’t until something directly affected him did he reconsider and idk about you but that is not my definition of “bravery” in the slightest
That…is actually a really good point
