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. A Change.org petition, which has more than 20,000

You couldn´t make this up if you had to. Would they have the same reaction if the "star" of the show was an NBA player?

It isn´t racial stereotyping if it is true.

This is not Oprah´s (O) channel. I have not heard of anyone who thinks this is not a travesty. Not worried about sterotypes, just worried about the fact that someone thought this was a good idea for a show!

I think okra just sold that channel - I thought the channel would be TLC - black shows all of the time. Stopped watching it and most others. I have the bundled tier and they are showing TV shows from the 50s. Comcast is constantly raising their fees and is rapidly pricing itself out of existence.

Too bad Obama´s free birth control pills weren´t available. I suppose the free condoms everyone was given in high school were thrown away. Or maybe they lost the instructions and just gave up trying to figure out how to use them.

It would be interesting to know the financial arrangements here. Does this hunk of African American manhood pay anything for the upkeep of his progeny? Is he quite certain that he is, in every case, the biological father? Are any of these outstanding young women on welfare? Are they employed or pursuing post-graduate degrees?

The proposed show, which certainly does not sound like stereotyping but rather a fairly typical mating pattern in this population, could answer such questions and more. Of course it normalizes and glamorizes a lifestyle that is largely for losers - but then, the show is principally directed to that audience anyway.

It´s already been done. It´s called "The Maury Povich Show". Close to 80% of black children are born to unmarried mothers. The truth hurts or in this case the truth will be celebrated as a black cultural choice. Not a problem as long as baby daddy obama keeps the money flowing to the hood.

#17, that was uncalled for. Most people know that word is not used anymore unless a person is very old or trying to be nasty.

Anyway, this is certainly not a stereotype...it is unfortunately more the rule than the exception nowadays. Thanks to LBJ and the racist Democrats, the nuclear black family has essentially been destroyed. What is sad is that the people don´t see how the Dems have manipulated them, created a dysfunctional ovwrwhelming majority of people caught in perpetual poverty and underclass. The left recruited and paid off community leaders to keep the people in line and believing the Dems have made their lives better while placing the blame for their problems on the right. But it is the left that continues to destroy these people and they let them. The problem with this show is that it may be used to make it look as if these people´s behavior is acceptable or even to be looked up to!! Evil media...

I am confused. What part of the show was stereotyping? A large number of rap performers are black? A large percentage of black children are born to single mothers? Or, a large percentage of black fathers have children from various mothers?

How come there is no reporting or "attack on White-American families" that produce countless of reality shows with white teen age mothers with little education from "white trash" families, "red-necks" shooting, fishing, swamping, trucking, bidding on numerous strange items and the countless of other reality shows that paint white people as illiterate, toothless, marry their cousin, "Deliverence"-born bafoons.

These programs horrendously stereotype white people, and in particular those who own guns, live in rural areas, tend to be relgious (think of what BO said in one of his public speeches) and do not have access to all the freebies blacks have through welfare and affirmative action.

I don´t see what the scandal is about. Stereotypes happen because they have some basis in reality, otherwise they would not be held as believable stereotypes. They are like profiling - a shorthand or simplified description of a group of people based on commonly observed features. I think stereotypes can be misused if they are used, not as a guide to dealing with individuals, recognizing that individual exceptions occur but as a be all and end all in judging the other person´s character. Used that way, it would be both lazy and racist.

If you take stereotypes and look at the veracity of what it says about a community, embarrassing though it may be, these stereotypes inform on what others think of that community and can be used as a reflection of what is going badly in that community. For blacks, as long as they keep blaming others, they do not ascribe responsibility to those who are really destroying the community - those pushing for sexual irresponsibility and an entitlement mentality.

#19 - "That word" is making a comeback, and there´s no use plugging your ears and pretending it isn´t. Maybe it´s a good thing, too. Why shouldn´t we differentiate between blacks - decent people who marry, work, take care of their families and respect traditional American virtues - and the rapidly primitivizing trash that´s sinking into the squalor of decivilization? It´s an ugly word for an ugly thing.

What we have here, and all over the country, is the end result of the liberal Democrat "Great Society" social welfare programs of the 1960´s.

While it is unusual for one cool dude to have 10 baby mamas, it is not unusual for millions of cool dudes to have several baby mamas, if they looked, they could easily find them in all the big city ghettos all over America.

The only comeback I have seen of that word is by people who claim to be "conservative". But real conservatives don´t engage in group-think. They judge people as individuals based on personal merit--not on irrelevant physical characteristics. Leftists, who historically are racist, are the ones that categorize people based on irrelevent characteristics and features and put people in boxes and label them. They use this group-think mentality to use people and pit people against each other for their own sick ideological agenda. Anyone who thinks it is okay to use such a word that is not generally accepted by people it is supposed to describe, especially in a negative connotation, likely has issues that may need addressing.

A wealthy west metro couple who had gone on the lam after being charged with welfare fraud in Minnesota was arrested Tuesday in Florida after being tracked down in the Bahamas.

British and Afghan forces were attacked by 15-20 Taliban fighters during a mission in southern Afghanistan. One of the men was wearing an explosive vest.

President Obama on Tuesday hailed the enrollment of more than 7 million people in insurance under his signature health law as “a big step forward” that will give Americans peace of mind and change the landscape of health care for years to come. He also rebuked his Republican foes of his law for standing in the way and spreading fear about this overhaul, quipping that “Armageddon has not arrived” and that they are holding back the United States from joining other advanced countries around the world in providing health coverage. “The debate over repealing this law is over.

A triumphant President Barack Obama declared his signature medical insurance overhaul a success, saying it has made America´s health care system ´a lot better.´ But buried in the 7.1 million enrollments he announced in a heavily staged Rose Garden appearance is a more unsettling reality. Numbers from a RAND Corporation study that has been kept under wraps suggest that barely 858,000 previously uninsured Americans – nowhere near 7.1 million – have paid for new policies and joined the ranks of the insured by Monday night. Others were already insured, including millions who lost coverage when their existing policies were suddenly

Before getting to the speech itself, it’s worth noting a few things. When the Democrats passed and Barack Obama signed Obamacare, the majority opposed it. About 56%, in fact. A majority have consistently opposed that law ever since. The Obama administration touted 7 million sign-ups by March 31 as “success.” When that goal appeared to be unreachable, the administration suggested that maybe 5 or 6 million would be enough. Now, as if by magic, they have their number. Somehow. All along, the administration has touted false numbers of enrollees. All along, the administration has neglected to admit that Obamacare is

A RAND study pours buckets of cold water on the Obama administration’s claims that it has nearly reached 7 million sign-ups for Obamacare. The whole point of Obamacare, supposedly, was to insure the uninsured and bend the cost curve down. Those who had insurance were supposed to be able to keep it.

Spanish historians say they have discovered what Monty Python could not – the Holy Grail, the legendary cup Jesus supposedly drank from at the Last Supper. The Spaniards – Margarita Torres and José Ortega del Río – believe the 2,000-year-old vessel is in a church in León in northern Spain. The pair spent three years studying the history of the chalice and last week published a book, “The Kings of the Grail,” making their case. The onyx chalice, they explained, was concealed within another antique vessel known as the Chalice of Doña Urruca, which is located in León’s basilica of
