2. “You don’t sound like a __________ girl at all …”
3. “Wait, why do you like white guys?”
4. “Why don’t you like (insert what they consider your ‘own race’ here) guys?”
5. People of darker skin thinking you’re stuck up…
WHY DOES NO ONE TALK ABOUT THE QUETZALCOATLUS?!
I MEAN, JESUS F. CHRIST.
PTERODACTYLS AIN’T SHIT NEXT TO THESE MOTHER FUCKERS. QUETZALCOATLUS FUCKING ATE BABY DINOSAURS FOR BRUNCH.
JUST IMAGINE SOMETHING AS TALL AS A MOTHER FUCKING GIRAFFE
SOARING THROUGH THE SKIES AT 80 MILES PER HOUR, AND THEN SWOOPING DOWN AND FUCKING EATING YOUR FACE OFF.
what if every Tumblr user suddenly looses their mouse?

I just reblogged this with the command, shit
I lost my mothers tongue
mãe me perdoa
I listen to her speak rapidly. words falling from her mouth, boca, like water.
Slang thrown, laughter, her melodic drawl smooth and intentional with each syllable.
eu te amo
I mimic her. curly my tongue around each letter, let it drip from my lips, lábios, like a child learning to speak.
quão bonita, minha menina negra
I try to copy her confidence in a language I can only understand brokenly. a culture I am nostalgic for but never knew enough about.
você fala português? Que vergonha! por que não?
how do I answer a question I cannot find the words to speak.
Something burns, fogo, inside me.
to find the half stolen by shame, vegonha, we never deserved to feel for raising daughters in languages, in cultures, that belonged to us too.
I envy my sisters who can speak their tongue. inveja
minha querida, I just want to go home too."
