 Not this one, I joined a group for "Latina Moms" and omfg yo, they are not welcoming to me because i'm "mixed." not 100% latina....the fuck?

How is it I'm not AA and you all welcomed me dispite the color of my skin and ethnic background / mix?!

i'm kinda livid because this is exactly WHY I still struggle today with identity issues. It's hurtful.

Sorry for the vent but It irrratates me bro. This group is my fav group because we have so much fun, it's a great support group for what i'm going thru right now and I'm hurt other groups arent as welcoming , laid back and well opened minded as this one. I litterally joined this group when i was pregnant and had scramble egg brain thinking it said "ALL AMERICAN MOMMIES" not African american LOL

and quiet frankly, I'm happy I misread it .

I just wish more people where open minded. =/

My niece has had that happen to her because by looks you would have thought she was 100% latina then you meet my sister. In the end my niece has kiss my ass attitude. in her words "I am st thomian". In the end if they don't accept you their loss...in the words of my dad before he got saved "FUCK EM"

I am also glad that you misunderstood the name and joined our group. Don't allow negative people to break your spirit. God made you in your unique way. Think of how boring life would be if we all looked and acted the exact same way. You are beautiful, afterall, you were made in God's image. There will always be haters among us.

I really enjoy our AAM group too. We have alot of interesting discussions. Of course we have our drama diva's in this group too, but for the most part. It's an awesome group!

I do understand what you mean about some of the other groups. I am a member of a Cafemom group called Confessions.  Last week a woman confessed that she killed her husband and that she just recently got out of prison after serving twenty years for the murder. She wanted advice on how and when to tell her current lover. Man, those mommies in that group might as well have been part of a lynch mob or part of the Klu Klux Klan or some other hate group. They went in on her. So I understand exactly what you mean.
