Okay I didn’t want to say anything, but, I think it’s time that everyone faced reality. No one else is speaking up, so I’ve gotta.
I’ve been seeing a lot of posts and comics and art about Lance making fun of Keith for being Texan recently. And as funny and cute as they are, that’s just wrong to me. It’s absolutely wrong. I mean, I’ve seen some serious mischaracterization of the Voltron crew before, but the fact that so many people have got it so wrong is just blowing my mind. We’ve got to face the facts people, Lance wouldn’t be making jokes about Keith being Texan.
<b>Lance:</b> hi Keith your mullet is gross but you're good looking~<p/><b>Keith:</b> what in tarnation<p/><b>Lance:</b> ...<p/><b>Shiro:</b> don't worry I speak my lil bro's weird Texan he meant to say "what the hell"<p/><b>Lance:</b> that makes a lot more sense now...<p/></p>
Keith’s dad has an accent, Keith doesn’t because he didn’t grow up with his dad
But, I have a friend who is adopted she has had zero personal contact with her birth parents and still has their accent when she gets angry, since Keith has had contact with his dad I’m gonna assume the same thing, so like Lance or something really pisses Keith off and he starts cussing them out with an accent and everyone just stares for about a minuet before Lance breaks down into horrified laughter Pidge can’t stop hyena cackling Hunk is trying his best not to laugh Allura and CORAN are confused af because why did he sound different? And then there is shiro, standing off to the side well aware that when Keith gets angry he has an accent, smirking while Keith is so fucking red

On this day in history a small group of Texans in the town of Gonzales stood up to Mexico and rallied together as a militia. The battle of Gonzales was the start of the Texas Revolution and gave us one of the most notorious flags in United States history.
Today we remember those brave Texans’ words, “Come and Take It”.
