"…indigenous peoples from Bolivia stated that they know another world is possible because they see that world whenever they do their ceremonies. Native ceremonies can be a place where the present, past and future become copresent. This is what Native Hawaiian scholar Manu Meyer calls a racial remembering of the future"

"The Angry Black Woman is a racist trope used to deny black women their humanity. Black women aren’t allowed to be complicated — they’re just angry. Black women aren’t allowed to be upset or vulnerable — they’re just angry. Black women are not allowed justifiable reactions to the myriad of bullshit — racist, sexist and otherwise — that they face. Oh, you know those black ladies are just so angry all the time."

petty hexes for the bitter brujas


- may you fall ill every year on the date of my birth with the lies caught in your throat, only to be cured when you finally tell truths
- may every pen you write about love with spill ink; every keyboard you type on lose its vowels
- may your eyeliner be as crooked as your ethics
- may every favorite pair of chanclas break within a year
- may your first date with your soul mate leave such a bad impression that they do not accept a second date
