It’s Because I’m Black Isn’t It? Celebrities Who’ve Abused the Race Card

Shawty Lo

When Shawty Lo’s reality show All My Babies’ Mamas was canceled, his camp released this statement:

So here’s the question, would you rather see 11 children struggle with mothers on welfare? Or watch a man support his children? Does it come down to the race card?

Other networks that currently showcase polygamy, promiscuity, and alcoholism, are on the air, with multiple mothers and magnitudes of children. So what’s the difference? Because Shawty Lo is black and a rapper? Yes, I said it he’s black, ( just in case you didn’t already know ).

In a TV climate where shows like Love & Hip Hop make it big and reality TV is full of baby mamas and jump offs, the race card is rarely ever the issue. Shawty Lo’s show didn’t get canceled because he’s black. It got cancelled because he fathered 11 children with 10 different mothers and Oxygen wasn’t prepared to celebrate a man who may have damaged 11 lives by not wrapping it up.
