11 children + 10 baby mommas = reality show. Yet there are people who are upset with this. How come, yo?
A yet-to-air reality show documenting a rapper, who has fathered eleven children by ten different women, has been slammed by critics who have branded it ‘disgusting’ and ‘negative’.
All My Babies’ Mamas, set to air this spring on the Oxygen network, follows Carlos ‘Shawty Lo’ Walker, 36, as he navigates family life in an affluent suburb of Atlanta, Georgia.
But after a preview of the one-hour, fly-on-the-wall hit the internet thousands of viewers called for it to be scrapped, with many suggesting it plays on racial stereotypes.
Can something be a stereotype if it’s reality? If it’s reality, it can’t be a stereotype, because it’s, ahhhhh, like, real, yo. If someone produced the show to hell, meaning, they put words in the actors/actresses mouths, and then got them to perform scenes which are invented or created, then yes, that is not reality. But a *fly-on-the-wall* reality show suggests cameramen hanging around, taping everything they see or hear. That’s reality, that’s life.
The Mayor believes the problem is that the people upset with this are people that want fake reality, or the show doesn’t fit their narrative of how blacks should be portrayed. You see, it seems no one is upset at a black man like Ice shacked up with that truly disgusting Coco unit, or that maniac Kanye impregnating that dirty Kardashian whore. Black guys with white women are promoted at every chance. That reality is good, even though it is produced to hell, meaning, very few scenes are real, they come from a writing and production team. But who cares, it’s a false but positive portrayal of the black man.
BUT, don’t you dare portray a black man who has 11 kids with 10 baby mommas, it’s a negative portrayal of the black man. Even though it’s true. Even though it’s reality.
Here’s some more reality, courtesy of the rapper himself, “Shawty Lo”:
‘How does a guy like me have ten baby mamas eleven kids? It’s heaven,’ he boasts in one scene.
And in another he explains: ‘I had a lot of girls… They was in love and, I probably was too. And it just happened.’
The trailer also shows him as he fails to remember the names of his eleven teenage children.
In an interview with Essence about her petition Ms Lamb said: ‘In the clip I saw, Lo couldn’t even remember the names of all of his 11 children. This is not funny to me. What’s funny about this?’
It’s funny because he loves all his baby mommas and 11 baby momma shorties, but can’t remember their names. That’s funny. It’s not funny like Jerry Lewis eating a ketchup sandwich with white gloves on, but it’s funny because it suggests Shawty is a mental cripple.
Also funny is how the women in this man’s life are bending over backward – quite literally – to be a breeder for this Romeo. The Mayor can picture the conversation between Shawty and baby momma #8…”Shawty, I knows you has gots 7 babies with 7 baby mommas, but if I let’s use pregnate me, promise me I’ll be yo last.”
Reality…it’s funny as shit.
**The Mayor should have just ripped Kathy Shaidle off. Or DID he?
