Where do you get your protein?

sorry but this is extremely incorrect, for 120 calories, black beans have about 9 grams of protein. try again tho next time you have to lie to people to deceptively try to get them to “”go vegan”“. It’s actually about 350 calories of black beans to get to 24 grams of protein. and you know how many beans that is? about 1 &amp; 2/3 cups. That’s a sh!t load of beans. and just eating beans isn’t a balanced meal, you should have a source of fat and green veggies as well. Which is then more food you have to stuff in yourself. You have to eat WAAAAAY more quantity (&amp;calories!) to get in the same nutrients as in a meal with red meat. Eating the meat is actually much more do-able for a regular person who has a regular busy schedule and needs a moderate sized meal that won’t take them 40 mins just to eat. #stopthelies

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. 

Related reading:"Gender wage gap affects the WHOLE family." - Terry O’Neill from the National Organization for Women via Eleanor’s Hope conference call.

I just don’t understand why all of these posts ignore that the racial pay gap also impacts men of color.
I honestly believe that this oversight is on purpose because nobody wants to acknowledge that Black and Latino and Native men are being paid less than white WOMEN. Because that would totally re-frame this pay gap conversation if it was widely acknowledged. And suddenly, there would be NO reason for white women to be front and center.

I’m searching for a word
to describe that overwhelming
feeling of thirst in the midst of an
ever-expanding ocean,
but all I can think of is you.
I’ve named many bodies
of water in your name, and they
have all drowned me just the same.
Pavana पवन (via maza-dohta)
