“My only regret was too young for Lisa Bonet
My only regret was too young for Nia Long
Now all I’m left with is hoes from reality shows
Hand her a script the bitch probably couldn’t read along
My only regret was too young for Sade Adu
My only regret could never take Aaliyah home”
I don’t think black girls are afraid to be black girls now.. I just think they’re bein very protective. Just think, if you go to a job interview wearin Bantu knots, you’re gonna be considered ghetto. Even if the people don’t know the history behind it, that’s why they’re more careful. It’s bullshit tbh. But no black girl is afraid to be black girl cause they been a black girl since birth 🌻💛
The Nias Hill Myna is now found on the islands of Nias and Banyak off the coast of Sumatra. They are critically endangered due to illegal trapping for the pet trade in Indonesia. Captive breeding efforts are underway but the small population of less than 50 on both islands are still under heavy pressure from trapping. tbc…
This is a stocky jet-black myna, with bright orange-yellow patches of naked skin and fleshy wattles on the side of its head and nape. At about 29 cm length, it is somewhat larger than the common myna (Acridotheres tristis).
It is overall green-glossed black plumage, purple-tinged on the head and neck. Its large, white wing patches are obvious in flight, but mostly covered when the bird is sitting. The bill and strong legs are bright yellow, and there are yellow wattles on the nape and under the eye. These differ conspicuously in shape from the naked eye-patch of the Common Myna and Bank Myna (A. ginginianus), and more subtly vary between the different hill mynas from South Asia: in the Common Hill Myna, they extend from the eye to the nape, where they join, while the Sri Lanka Hill Myna has a single wattle across the nape and extending a bit towards the eyes. In the Southern Hill Myna, the wattles are separate and curve towards the top of the head. The Nias and Enggano Hill Mynas differ in details of the facial wattles, and size, particularly that of the bill.
