Here in America it is appropriate to have a show like Honey Boo Boo that stereotypes Georgia families as Southern White Trash as does BuckWild, But it is totally offensive to portray a Black Rapper as a missing father to multiple children from multiple women. It is simply racist to do so.
The cable channel Oxygen has scrapped a show in development called “All My Babies’ Mamas” after the promotion of an online petition that condemned the channel, accusing it of exploiting and stereotyping black children and families.
“As part of our development process, we have reviewed casting and decided not to move forward with the special,” the channel said in a statement.
Sabrina Lamb, an author who started the petition against the show last month, said she was pleased that Oxygen “has heard the outrage of over 37,000 consumers and shareholders who said, ‘enough is enough.’”
