sobre tus rodillas.
Cerrando los ojos su olor aspiraste,
-¿Duermes sobre piedras cubiertas de musgos?
¿Con ramas de sauces te atas las trenzas?
¿ Tu almohada es de trébol? ¿Las tienes tan negras
porque acaso en ella exprimiste un zumo
retinto y espeso de moras silvestres?
¡Qué fresca y extraña fragancia te envuelve!
Hueles a arroyuelos, a tierra y a selvas.
¿Que perfume usas? Y riendo te dije:
Te amo y soy joven, huelo a primavera.
Este olor que sientes es de carne firme,
de mejillas claras y de sangre nueva.
¡Te quiero y soy joven, por eso es que tengo
las mismas fragancias de la primavera!"
Como la primavera por la poetisa y feminista uruguaya Juana Ibarbourou.

Ohhh I know. But I’m finding it hard for that to make a difference in his statement. I find it gross. Comments, Luís?
10 year old Mariachi singer Sebastion de la Cruz was thrust into the national spotlight last year on America’s Got Talent. Tonight, he was once again seen by the nation as he sang the national anthem at Game 3 of the NBA finals in San Antonio where the Spurs took on the Miami Heat.
As you can see, patriotic Americans were NONE TOO PLEASED that a Mexican (don’t tell these people he’s Mexican AMERICAN) sang the United States national anthem - a song so beautiful that bald eagles usually cry whenever they hear it but not tonight because a Mexican sang it.
“#GoHome.” He’s already home. He lives in San Antonio. The same San Antonio where the majority of the population is Mexican.
OK THERE, “THE GREAT WHITE.”
“I’m highly upset that THIS MEXICAN KID is singing the anthem.” lmao. Wait a few years Grace and tell us how you feel when the majority of the country is Hispanic. I look forward to hearing from you then!
San Antonio may already be your own personal hell if that’s how you feel about Mexicans, Blake.
Correction: YOU ain’t. All of the United States ain’t racist white males like you, Thomas.
lmao, DESTIN WHITE. If “what has the world come to” is your reaction a little Mexican boy singing the anthem, just you wait! Hint: your world won’t be WHITE.
And, now, for my favorite tweets: people asking why is this Mexican/illegal/foreigner/etc. singing “OUR/MY ANTHEM”…
“Our anthem!” Our racism!
I had been out of the country (in Mexico HA!) so I missed this, but I only have two things to say:
- Mexican-Americans ARE AMERICAN.
- Minority babies are now majority in United States, so racist white people should get used to fewer white people singing the National Anthem.
Followers and general tumblr herman@s, please do not be fooled by the blog called “angrylatinagirlsunited”. They are not a blog dedicated to the empowerment of Latinas, but instead it’s blog that contains racist, anti-black, fatshaming, misogynist posts, and all kinds of triggering and horrible material. Again, DON’T BE FOOLED BY THE URL “angrylatinagirlsunited”. Please boots this post to help create awareness about this gross blog and report them for harassment.
p.s. We’ve talked about this blog before, but it was recently brought to our attention again by our sisters at angryasiangirlsunited (who you should be following), so a shout-out to them and thank you for coming forward with this information. WoC SOLIDARITY.
