All My Babies' Mamas will focus on the life of Rapper Shawty-Lo, his 11 children and 10 baby mamas. The 36 year old rapper was 15 when his first child was born. Several of his children are the same age as his 19 year old girlfriend.
A petition has been started by Sabrina Lamb of New York. The petition calls for the cancellation of the
new reality show about Rapper Shawty-Lo’s life, his children and all of his baby
mamas. Rapper Shawty-Lo allegedly has 10 baby mamas and 11 children.
The petition requesting the cancellation of the show has over 15,000 supporters. Supporters are visiting change.org to sign the petition.
Although just about everyone has a reality show or two they may look forward
to watching or find entertaining we‘ve all witnessed something that may have
crossed our minds as inappropriate for TV. When a show is created that exploits
and stereotypes our Black children and families it’s time for us to take a stand
to save our children from being influenced by another reality TV show.
As I look around our community at our youth, I can see the imitated behaviors
as well as the imitated fashions and styles of many of the reality TV stars.
Today, our children are already being exposed to a variety of what we were
brought up to perceive as inappropriate. Many parents have chosen to take a stand by
signing the petition, voicing their opinions on what our Black children are being
exposed to and how they are being treated on TV.
