Whenever I hear the "Women are paid $.78 for the man’s $1" I flip it around.
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
White people are still the ~standard so that’s not so revolutionary.
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.
If you take away anything from this website, please let it be what I bolded ^
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.

R.I.P. EMMETT LOUIS TILL
Notice that the Federal government denied its duty to investigate by declaring Till’s murder a “state’s rights” issue, leaving Mississippi to conduct a sham of trial.
Notice that J. Edgar Hoover was more concerned about the attention the Community Party USA might get for supporting Emmett’s mother, Mamie Till Mobley, rather than in using his FBI to seek justice for her son’s murder.
Trayvon Martin is Emmitt Till all over again…
Renisha McBride is Emmett Till all over again…
Jordan Davis is Emmett Till all over again…
Johnathan Ferrell is Emmett Till all over again…
