Vile photos show the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border no one is talking about

With a spate of huge stories breaking in the past few weeks, you might not have caught the massive environmental crisis in northern Mexico that began earlier in August.

According to the Associated Press, local politicians claim that Grupo Mexico, a private mining company in Sonora with a troubling track record of hazardous waste violations in Mexico and the U.S., was slow to report a disastrous fault in its leaching ponds, which hold industrial acid used in the mining process. The spill released around 10 million gallons of acid into the Bacanuchi and Sonora Rivers.

I think the saddest people always try their hardest to make people happy

This scene was so interesting because I assumed Elizabeth would say “because you’re black,” but instead she says illegitimate because that is a struggle she identifies with. Elizabeth likely never acknowledged Dido’s blackness or the racism she experienced as a result. She was sympathetic because she loved Dido like a sister, but there was a certain amount of colorblind ignorance that likely never changed.
