new mexicos

my mom’s on vacation in new mexico and I (jokingly) told her to find me a cool rock, and she sent me a pic of this little friend! I guess there was no identification for it though, so we’re not sure what it is! I tried googling some stuff and it looks like it might be like a very rough kyanite, but I can’t be sure. anyone have any ideas?

Yeah because tanned white people isn't a thing? How many pale cowboys are there in New Mexico? Having visited the place I'd say relatively few. By all means have your head canon if it makes you happy, but don't accuse people who don't share it of "racism".

boi!! mccree is heavily mexican coded!! not just his skin color, but his fashion (the serape?? mexican) and his entire theme of being a cowboy (most real cowboys were mexican, native american, and/or black!). like, the whole cowboy thing was started by mexicans–we get the word “buckaroo” from vaquero because white americans couldnt (wouldnt?) pronounce spanish properly. he’s also FROM new mexico, which, guess what, once was actually mexico! america took the territory from mexico during the mexican american war. today nm has the highest percentage population of hispanic people out of all the other states. “ The U.S. Census Bureau estimated that 48% of the total 2015 population was Hispanic or Latino of any race, the highest of any state.” literally quoted there, for you. 

i could just as easily for navajo mccree, or mixed mccree! new mexico has the highest population of native americans in the continental US at just under 10%, and 4% of the population of nm speaks navajo. mccree has more hispanic coding than navajo, but why couldn’t he be mixed? it’s the fuckin’ future. he could be navajo and mexican. 

i called that person racist for saying /mccree is white/ when he is HEAVILY coded to be NOT WHITE and doesnt even LOOK like a white guy outside of his legendary skins (but we all know how blizzard is with the whitewashing so)

sure, tanned white people exist. mccree’s not one of ‘em, though. at the VERY LEAST, he’s coded to be hispanic. and why would it be a big deal if he IS not white? if he is mexican or navajo or both? that’s more representation! why would that be bad, ever????

Hi! I just wanted to say that for the past few days I devoured Jonathan's and Fran's short stories and you have left me utterly devastated with 'Broken Paper Heart' and 'The Star of New Mexico.' Devastated. I don't think I stopped crying once while reading. I've fallen in love with the InCryptid series all over again (and more so). Thank you.

You are so welcome!  Thank you for reading.

I love Johnny and Fran so much.  I never expected their story to take as long as it did, and it did because I loved them so much.  I miss them so badly.  Well, I miss Fran.  I still have Johnny, for the moment.

What is Pluto considered in the US?

The State House of Representatives voted that Pluto really is a planet whenever it passes over the state of New Mexico.

The Illinois Senate passed a similar resolution in 2009, on the basis that Clyde Tombaugh, the discoverer of Pluto, was born in Illinois. The resolution asserted that Pluto was “unfairly downgraded to a ‘dwarf’ planet” by the IAU.
