Although it hasn't hit the airwaves (yet), a petition has already been launched to stop Shawty Lo's reality tv project ‘All My Babies' Mamas". Read the petition inside and watch the first episode of TLC's take on pastor's wives "The Sisterhood."
The Oxygen network is fully-prepared to air what some folks think is one of the most rachet reality tv ideas yet....Shawty Lo's "All My Babies' Mamas" We told you earlier about the special which will feature the ATL-based rapper AND his 10 "baby mamas" and 11 kids and now there's a peition to get it yacked (before it starts) or at least to stop it from going further.
Sabrina Lamb posted a peition on Change.Org saying,
"Cancel Shawty-Low show aka “My Babies’ Mommas” and all programming which demeans black children, women and stereotypes black men!
Our Children…our Community… Deserves Better.
Ban This Poison.
Cancel This Television Broadcast.
Oxygen Television Network is prepared to broadcast a one hour special celebrating the dysfunction of rapper Shawty Lo…aka the insulting title “My Babies’ Mommas” witnessed by his 11 children…by 10 different women…(some may have been underage) as they….argue, beg, fight for emotional, financial support and sexual reward.
What is the difference between this ministrel show and the others which clog the airwaves without proper balance of the beauty and positive aspects of our community??
THE CHILDREN!….OUR CHILDREN!
The children are front and center..or used as bargaining chips! The children painfully witness their parents’ behavior. And it is their children…OUR children who will hold all of us accountable by allowing them to be exploited internationally in this manner….for not standing up for them and for our people!
What You Can Do?
Join RapRehab.com, BlackMenInAmerica.com, The Mo’Kelly Report/The Mo’Kelly Show, MyBrownBaby.com, Ulysses “Butch” Slaughter of The Odyssey Project and other influential individuals like YOU…by signing this petition and forward to your friends, family and colleagues. And make sure that everyone in your household stands up! Contact has already been made with the network…and with your voice…this ugliness will not see international airwaves.
If our DEMANDS to cancel the airing of this POISON are not met…an international boycott will be launched against their ADVERTISERS.
ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!!"
So what do you think? Though, interestlngly, we can no longer find an air date, it is supposed to coming sometime soon. Will you be watching or protesting along with the thousands who've already signed the petition?
Also on television....
Producers in the mecca of Black Hollywood aka Atlanta have now trained their reality show cameras on the church with TLC's "The Sisterhood." As they attempt to answer the question "What does a pastor's wife have in common with a basketball wife" (Ok...that was actually our question), the show pits five first ladies against each other in the same vein of "BBW" and "RHOA."
The question is whether this will shed a negative light on spirtuality or will people just see it for what it is....entertainment.
It is a little interesting to see women arguing over the scripture instead of throwing cocktails (but that may just be this episode). We see Dominique putting one of the other ladies (Tara - who knows the Bible BETTER than anyone else so she thinks) in her place with a line like,
"Now, if I’m talking to my spiritual daughter or I’m talking to another person I’m trying to convert, yes I’m going to give them a scripture. But I don’t need to give you the scripture, because you know the scripture!"
Smh....it's not as shocking as Evelyn jumping over a table but....maybe its worth a look?
