Remember Equal Pay Day? How every year we come together to remember that women still earn, on average, 79 cents for every dollar made by men?

Well, minorities make even less. And in order to raise awareness of that problem, today has been dubbed Black Women's Equal Pay Day. Today represents how far into the next year a black woman would have to work to earn as much as a white man does in a year.

It's not exactly a joyous occasion.
