The black witch is considered a harbinger of death in Mexican and Caribbean folklore. In many cultures, one of these moths flying into the house is considered bad luck: e.g., in Mexico, when there is sickness in a house and this moth enters, it is believed the sick person will die, though a variation on this theme (in the lower Rio Grande Valley, Texas) is that death only occurs if the moth flies in and visits all four corners of one's house (in Mesoamerica, from the pre-Hispanic era until the present time, moths have been associated with death and the number four). In some parts of Mexico, people joke that if one flies over someone's head, the person will lose his hair.
In Jamaica, under the name duppy bat, the black witch is seen as the embodiment of a lost soul or a soul not at rest. In Jamaican English, the word duppy is associated with malevolent spirits returning to inflict harm upon the living and bat refers to anything other than a bird that flies. The word "duppy" (also: "duppie") is also used in other West Indian countries, generally meaning "ghost".
In the Ecuadorian highlands they are called Tandacuchi and in Peru Taparacuy or Taparaco. These countries share the belief that if this moth, a messenger of death, appears in your home, someone will die very soon.
In Puerto Rico, these moths are seen as a sign you've been cursed/bad luck. This is because of their use in santería spellcasting. The moth can also be the witch/spell caster themselves transformed into the moth. It is important not to kill the moth because then the slain will have their revenge one way or another.
In Hawaii, black witch mythology, though associated with death, has a happier note in that if a loved one has just died, the moth is an embodiment of the person's soul returning to say goodbye. In the Bahamas, where they are locally known as money moths or money bats, the legend is that if they land on you, you will come into money, and similarly, in South Texas, if a black witch lands above your door and stays there for a while, you will supposedly win the lottery.
In Paraguay, people are afraid of the black witch, as there is a mistaken belief about the moth urinating over their human "victims" and thereby inoculating their eggs, which then develop into maggots developing under the skin. Some also believe, if it touches your eyes, you can go blind. The maggots referred to are the myiasis-causing larvae of the human botfly (Dermatobia hominis). As a consequence of that belief, both the moth and the maggot are called with the common name "ura". Both the name and folk belief are of unknown origin.
In Spanish, the black witch is known as "mariposa de la muerte" (Mexico and Costa Rica), "pirpinto de la yeta" (Argentina), "tara bruja" (Venezuela) or simply "mariposa negra" (Colombia); in Nahuatl (Mexico) it is "Miquipapalotl" or "Tepanpapalotl" (miqui = death, black + papalotl = moth); in Quechua (Peru) it is "Taparaco"; in Mayan (Yucatán) it is "X-mahan-nah" (mahan = to borrow + nah = house). Other names for the moth include the papillion-devil, la sorcière noire, the mourning moth or the sorrow moth.

Do you even know Spanish? Your post are in English.
I follow some blogs that are in Spanish, but I mostly post in English because most post I interact with, and asks i receive are in English. I also don’t use my Spanish often in day to day life, so it’s kind of bad. I can understand a lot of it and speak simple sentences, but really only use it when I’m communicating with relatives.
But that said not all Spanish is the same, there are many different dialects. Like the word camión can mean bus or truck depending on where you learned it, and basura can mean trash or some vulgar insult in Argentina (I don’t know what it means there no one will tell me). Colombian Spanish and Spanish from another Spanish speaking country can use the same words to mean something completely different.
Heck even different regions within a country can use the same words to mean different things. Then you take into account that people have different accents depending on what country, or region in a country they learned Spanish from.
I’d like people to stop perpetuating the myth that all Spanish is the same, because while I don’t hear that myth often, I’ve heard it enough to annoy me. I mean look at English, you really going to tell me someone from Europe speaks English the same way as someone from Africa, the Middle East, Australia, or America?
I also hate that American education systems teach Spanglish rather than proper Spanish. The amount of times I’ve seen signs that are wrong, just… would it kill them to actually hire someone who knows Spanish?
But fun fact about Spanish, to my knowledge it is the only language that has a committee that officially oversees the rules of the language. It’s located in Spain and they have a website.

Ya’ll, I gotta say sumn
yo, wtf is up with spanish sero? including calling him papi...considering it’s mostly white women writing nsfw spanish sero fan fic, it gives me a real fetishy vibe and it’s grossing me out.
it’s one thing to hc a character as bilingual or hispanic but it’s another thing to try to do that when you aren’t either. i won’t be reblogging that content anymore and will start blocking white women who do write and reblog it.
also will be blocking any of ya’ll nonblack folk using AAVE in your fics. race, culture, and language aren’t things for white people to fetishize. ESPECIALLY the term “papi.” it gives me whack vibes, i don’t trust ya’ll about it.
yo whenever we talk about the West can we make it clear we're talking about the imperial powers and like not latin america/the caribbean...
it's kind of annoying considering how they're (LA/Caribbean) are literally also the global south and the victims of colonialism yet because of their location are roped in with the same people that are exploiting them on a regular basis.
