AMG Baby!!!! AMG 4 Life! ( yea yea!....in my best Mack 10 voice) LOL!
Ok so let me explain. Alternative Minority Girl is something my friend Genene made up with some of her friends. I was over her house doing her nails and we were listening to her amazing playlist of music and I realized she liked the same type of music I liked. Not just r/b and rap, but folk, soft rock, pop, metal rock, electronic, shoot whatever sounded good! So I said to her that I should make a club for black girls who like all kinds of music and movies and what not. She said she already had a club. LOL...AMG....alternative minority girl! I fell out laughing. "I love it! I wanna join!" So I guess Im in. We havent had any meetings. I haven't meet her other friends that are in this wonderful group. (btw....its for all minorities, you don't have to be black.) I have a few friends that want to join too. LOL.
This is my vision for AMG. AMG is a group of women that do not want conform to typical stereotypes of their particular race. AMG's pretty much live life to the beat of their own drum. We date outside our race if we like one month and date inside our race the next. LOL! We will listen to Goodie Mob one minute and James Taylor the next. We will not let the color of our skin define us. We are individuals. We have friends of all nationalities and enjoy living life outside of the box society would love for us to stay in.
I guess since I am blogging about this wonderful group we should meet up and have our first meeting. (sending Genene a text when I'm done.)
Now what prompted me to write about this is the fact that I hate when my people...black people say that I am trying to act white or be white because I'd rather watch "its always sunny in philadelphia" than "the game." Or that Id rather go see the Foo Fighters than Trey Songz. I like what I like and I am comfortable in my own beautiful dark skin. So leave me be. Mainly its ex-boyfriends that say that. Boy stop! I date one guy that said that I was trying to assimilate because i straightened my hair. I press my hair because I want it to blow in the wind and bounce around and look pretty. I love my nappy hair. I just choose not to wear it curly at times. Its in its natural state now!
Now the white guys I have dated would never say that because they know that it would be upsurd! Yes, I speak proper and correct english but I can get "ghetto." When I'm proper no one takes me serious. When I let the "hood" out people listen. It shouldn't have to be that way. LOL.
If people would just learn to enjoy life and what God has blessed them with and stop worrying about what others think they would be fine. I could care less. Because if you cared about me it wouldn't matter anyway. Real talk! (oops, thats my hood speaking.)
For your entertainment here are some of my random top movie and music picks.
