It’s that time of year again.
Just say no to racist costumes people.
Blackface is racist.
Dia de Los Muertos “costumes” are racist
Costuming off of someone else’s culture is racist.
Do your part in making this Halloween season enjoyable for everyone!

But the wage gap varies significantly by race, according to an analysis from the research organization AAUW. While white women experienced that 78 percent figure, Native Hawaiian and Pacific Islander women made 65 percent of what white men made in 2013, African-American women made 64 percent, American Indian and Alaska Native women made 59 percent, and Hispanic women made just 54 percent. Asian-American women are the only group doing better than white women, making 90 percent of white men’s earnings.

Woah, staggering.

This video explains fracking. Fracking is currently occurring on the Navajo reservation, intentionally kept from sight— fracking equipment is intentionally painted to blend in with the surrounding scenery. Sadly, fracking will contaminate water tables that are necessary for survival. In addition, billions of gallons of water will be wasted daily. Water is already precious as a result of being outsourced to larger metro areas like Phoenix. Meanwhile, the Diné people continue living their lives on the reservation without basic amenities such as running water and electricity.
