Cable TV’s Oxygen channel was founded in part by Oprah Winfrey, but it appears to have finally jumped the shvartze with a proposed program called All My Babies’ Mamas.

Originally slated to appear in the spring, the one-hour special now hovers in reality-show limbo due to a torrent of protest from outraged Pundits of Color. Their chief lament is that the show unfairly attacks, demeans, and stereotypes the black community despite the fact that it is, well, a reality show starring real black people. Really black people.

Atlanta-based rapper Shawty Lo (born Carlos Walker) is the man whose loins produced all those babies from all those mamas—eleven babies and ten mamas, to be exact.

According to Wikipedia:

When he was a teenager, he sold drugs and mugged people. By the age of 15, Carlos had fathered his first child….After a decade of selling drugs, Walker decided to turn his attention to music and began performing as Shawty Lo.

Mr. Lo is currently dating a 19-year-old girl whose womb has yet to sprout forth with the rich, humid fruit of his seed, but to be fair, she’s roughly the age of his oldest child, so give the young lady some time. This teenage lass was scheduled to appear alongside Shawty, the babies, and the mamas—the latter of whom were tagged with wacky handles such as “Fighter Baby Mama,” “Crazy Baby Mama,” “Jealous Baby Mama,” and “Shady Baby Mama”—on this TV extravaganza which, unlike all of those mamas’ babies, may soon be aborted.

“The outrage has little to do with the show being unrealistic and everything to do with it being far too realistic.”

One segment of the promotional trailer (the full version was yanked from YouTube shortly after the media blacklash occurred) shows Shawty struggling to remember all his chilluns’ names.

In a press release that was pulled from their website after the controversy erupted, Oxygen had described the show thusly:

This bold new series shows every second of the drama-filled lives surrounding a unique “modern” family unit, as they navigate their financially and emotionally connected lives. As the household grows, sometimes so does the dysfunction, leaving the man of the house to split his affection multiple ways while trying to create order…but sharing your man with several opinionated women is bound to create issues.

The resultant blacklash was even funnier than the show’s description. Boyce Watkins in the Huffington Post called the program “an insult to Black Parents Everywhere,” adding that “11 children with 10 women is like spraying your sex organs in every direction without thinking much about the target.” On the esteemed MyBrownBaby website, Nick Chiles said the show impeded black America’s “upliftment,” predicting that “anthropologists will one day point to Shawty Lo (aka Carlos Walker) and ‘All My Babies’ Mamas’ as the cultural nadir of America, the moment when we ceased to have a functioning moral compass….” Black radio host Morris O’Kelly issued a statement that “As a respected African-American media professional I can not [sic] in good conscience allow this program to move forward.” And the Chicago Tribune‘s Clarence Page offered up an exasperated “Lincoln freed us for this?

As a strong, young, black, urban, empowered female George Soros fistpuppet on change.org, a certain Shericka Johnson wrote a petition that included the following passages:

We do not need another reality show that shows our people in a bad light. Our community needs to stop watching this nonsense and boycott these companies that are owned by white folks….This is not a hate petition against Shawty Lo and his “baby momma’s”. We simply will not support ignorance in any way, shape or form.

    This show was canceled for being a Hate Fact.

  2. RED says:

    Is their a head of neurosurgery on TV who isn’t black?

  3. rara oh la la says:

    “Shawty Lo”

    Ahaha

    ahahahahaha

    God I fucking hate this planet.

  4. Sniffy says:

    This is the reason I support the “vaccine” Mr. Bill Gates talks about.

  5. I just watched one of Shawty Lo’s music vidoes. Judging by that, he apparently thinks himself quite ritzy–a real high-roller. And most of his baby’s mamma’s probably think their fabulous as well.

    Fucking delusional people. Watching these tards grasp at their skewed, funhouse mirror vision of class is like watching drunk pre-schoolers play house. They don’t even understand the fundamentals. Chris Rock’s “put the dick down, bitch!” routine comes to mind. Now there’s a colored fella I can get behind!

    If y’all think Shawty’s the only gent who has knocked these fine women up you’re crazy. All of these women probably have multiple children by different men.

    Shawty don’t pay like the government does and the government don’t pay shit for just one kid.

    Best guess is that each of these women have at least two kids and the “unique modern family unit” probably has 30 or so under 18. And yes Shawty’s probably a grand dad.

    Please sign the petitions, these folks don’t need any encouragement (i.e. I’m on t.v.) to procreate.

    Working as a waiter in the A for four years turned my brother from a liberal queer to a vehement racist.
    Then he partnered up with a VA fella and it just got more and more backed up.
    Teehee.

  8. Don't Call Me N%$@er says:

    You are all racist. So what if the guy has a lot of kids with different women? What about all the white trash that breed like monkeys? Racism is creating a poverty imbalance and discourages minorities from getting educated and self-sufficient. It’s easy to laugh about it behind your computer screens, try living outside of your white-bred world and see if you would have the same attitude!

  9. YourRoutineisTired says:

    @Don’t Call Me N%$@er says, “So what if the guy has a lot of kids with different women?” Uh because it’s associated with criminality, destitution and dysfunction that the rest of society needs to pick up the tab for. All the while these Yahoos (I use that term in the insulting original Swiftian sense of the word)actually parade themselves about like their the bee’s knees or something–somebody needs to make fun of them; they don’t have enough shame.

    “try living outside of your white-bred world and see if you would have the same attitude!” I would venture to say that many if not most of the people who frequent this site have lived or do live outside of “white-bred worlds.” The author of this very article, Jim Goad, lives in a 90% black area in Atlanta. Perhaps dealing with the kind of dysfunction and rampant irresponsibility that Goad speaks about in this article is what inspires our resentment and derisive laughter.

    “Racism is creating a poverty imbalance and discourages minorities from getting educated and self-sufficient” except for the Northeast Asians and Indians who earn, on average, higher salaries and are more educated than native-born White Americans. Stop blaming everyone else for blacks’ problems. It’s a worn out, unconvincing routine and I’ll think you’ll find that people are getting fed up with it.

    This is 1996; nobody takes you seriously anymore, Don’t Call Me N%$@er.

  10. Sambo says:

    There is simply no limit to how far these spooks will go to perpetuate their own negative stereotypes. It’s the most sad and hilarious thing out there.

    Side note: Oprah is fat as fuck these days.

  11. Nit-Picky Distraction says:

    Mr. Goad- why the “sic”? Can not or the contraction cannot are both fine.

  12. Ring Kodney says:

    The truth hurts. I’m from the A and it is rarity that you run into any young black people who don’t have atleast 1 kid. And I’m saying from like age 18 and up. Those who don’t are far more often the exception to the rule. So, this shit isn’t surprising to me. Maybe the rest of America, but this is old news here.

    Best article title ever. And “don’t call me niggeerererer”, poverty? If you’re poor, don’t make a pissing, shitting, and eating machine. And certainly don’t make a ton of them. Condoms are fucking free at family planning clinics btw…
