Vladimir Nabokov (via strandbooks)
wes gibbins is so important to me rn and it’s not even because he’s cute af. but because he is a black boy who is timid and quirky and unsure of himself. it has always annoyed me that so many roles black men get have them portrayed as smooth-talking, philanderers with over inflated egos.
like, shy black boys exist. and they are precious. and america needs to know this.
