So those same folks who called me “racist” for joking about stereotypical fecundity routinely attack the harmless, hardworking protagonists of TLC’s 19 Kids and Counting, wishing death upon this white Christian family for “polluting the earth” by “having too many kids.”
What, then, will they say about All My Babies’ Mamas, a show coming soon (maybe) from the hilariously misnamed Oxygen channel?
As Jim Goad recently and inimitably explained, this show focuses on an Atlanta rapper named Shawty Lo and his 10 “baby mamas”—arranged here more or less in order of “thickness”—and their 11 children. Practically everyone on the show is named, from the sounds of it, after the brands of birth control their parents declined to employ. No wonder poor Shawty Lo couldn’t recite his kids’ handles on request.
