image: a comparison of race, gender and the ratio of median annual wages each group receives. White men are at the top with $1, then Asian men with 83 cents, Black Men with 71 cents, Asian Women with 68 cents, then Latino Men with 66 cents, then White Women with 63 cents, then Black Women with 53 cents, then Latina Women with 50 cents].
…I’m gonna begin making an issue out of this, because few others do… and it’s something that needs to be talked about..
Notice how Native Americans are not included. Notice how Native Americans are generally never included in these statistics and/or conversations/discussions of oppression whether that be economic or not. The only reason why there is as much talk about Native issues (particularly cultural appropriation) here on tumblr is because we Natives have stepped up and forced everyone to see that we are still here. But this is no the case in many places.
This trend in leaving out Natives effectively allows the public to believe we’ve died out and/or trivializes our experiences on the off chance there is some discussion.
I am glad that light is being shed on the oppression (economic or otherwise) of blacks, asian, and latin@s… but I refuse to be silent when I see these kinds of things. Sometimes it’s just as much about what’s left out of the ‘picture’ as we is left in.
Reblogging again because all of this is super important.
reblogging because this commentary should be spread.
Reblogging because this is important. As a native american, I feel incredibly under-represented.
