Kentake Page Today we remember Mexico’s President of African descent, Vicente Guerrero officially abolishing the Maafa (slavery) in Mexico on September 16, 1829. The Maafa was banned soon after Mexico won its independence in 1821, but it was not officially abolished until 1829.
The existence of Afro-Mexicans was officially affirmed in the 1990s when the Mexican government acknowledged Africa as Mexico’s “third root”. But Mexico’s real history shows the African presence in the country going back thousands of years.

    He says ‘I don’t get it, why are you still a virgin at 24?’

    He says ‘I don’t believe you, I’ve seen you walk, virgins don’t walk like that’

    He says, ‘That ain’t natural, people are supposed to fuck.’

    He asks ‘Why though? No offence though.’

    I ask ‘When was your first time?’

    He says ‘I was 12’

    He says ‘I know what you’re thinking, that’s too young.’

    I look at his knuckles, he has two good hands.

    He says ‘She was older than me.’

    I ask ‘How old?’

    And he says ‘It’s better that the girl is older, that’s how I learnt all things I know’

    He licks his lips.

    I ask again ‘How old?’

    He says ‘I could use one finger to make you sob’

    I think of my brother in prison and I can’t remember his face.

    I ask again ‘How old?’

    He says ‘Boys become men in the laps of women, you know?’

    I think of my mother’s face lined with her bad choices in men.

    He says ‘If you were mine you wouldn’t get away with this shit, I’d eat you for hours, I’d gut you like fruit.’

    I think of my cousin’s circumcision, how he feels like a mermaid, not human from the waist down.

    He says ‘I’d look after you, you know?’

    I laugh, I ask for the last time ‘How old?’

    He says ‘34.’

    He says ‘She was beautiful though and I know what you’re thinking but it’s not like that, I’m a man, I’m a man, I’m a man. No one could ever hurt me’.

    Why don’t most superheroines look like this?

    Because most comic books are drawn by men.

    Reblogging for artistic reference.

    Yes. Artistic reference is why I am reblogging this.

    This is why I hate it when people draw the likes of Wonder Woman or Power Girl or She-Hulk without making them muscular because ‘that’s not feminine’. Because clearly, you know, it bloody well is.

    Totally reblogging for the artistic reference. Definitely.

    artistic reference my ass i’m reblogging this because she’s fucking beautiful and her body is inspiring. also she so cute

    California man accused of cooking ex-girlfriends dog

    blackfemalejesus:

    (Reuters) - A northern California man was in police custody on Friday after allegedly stealing his ex-girlfriend’s pet dog, cooking it and feeding it to her, police said. Ryan Watenpaugh, 34, of Palo Cedro was arrested on Thursday and charged with counts of domestic violence, false imprisonment, stalking and cruelty to animals, according to records from the Shasta County Jail. Watenpaugh’s ex-grilfriend, who was not named by authorities, called Redding Police Department on Tuesday and reported being stalked by Watenpaugh, police said in a statement. She told law enforcement officials that their relationship was punctuated by bouts of domestic violence, but the two attempted to reconcile their problems last week over a meal that he cooked.
