Yes, somebody gave Shawty Lo and his 11 baby mamas a reality show (Maybe Oxygen). And while we could just post the video and leave it at that, we’ve decided to bring out the old Debate format and let nappyafro’s own King Jerm & B-Easy discuss this issue. Is Shawty Lo’s All My Babies’ Mamas reality show too hood for TV & terrible for the Black community? Watch the trailer below then…DEBATE!
Pro: We NEED this show on TV because it depicts a Black man taking care of ALL of his kids. Does he have ALOT of kids? Yes. Does he have a slew of BM’s? Yep. But why is something like this a bad look for the Black community? We hear all the stories of the Black man that runs away from the responsibility of having kids. This man Carlos “Shawty Lo” Walker is not running, he is taking on fatherhood head on! I’m glad that this got picked up and can’t wait to see this on Oxygen! – King Jerm
Con: Black people. We can’t have this shit on TV. Obama did not get elected to see Shawty Lo and his 10 baby mothers on television who all have names like the seven dwarfs (Dopey, Fighty, Skeezy, Grumpy, Shady, Bougie, etc). The only person this will be good for is a nigga with five baby mamas that won’t look so bad by comparison. Will this cause some Black women to strive to be baby mamas? Of course. Will this be a hit with the hood? Of course. Damn you Oxygen. – B-Easy
