It's a sad day in America, when people attempt to reject a father that steps up to the plate, a father who is actively supporting his children & their mothers , not just monetarily but emotionally as well.

 

Shawty Lo, is in fact a father figure that more young black men today coming from a similar past lifestyle and environment, should mimic in his parental role. With 11 children, which are all clothed, fed, housed and loved in every way that a parent should love, protect and provide for their child. As well as being a supportive and active partner in the co-parenting of his children with their mothers.

 

Everyone has a past, especially in hip-hop, however how many take the reins and put their life in motion for change?

 

Rap music came from the streets of urban culture, songs of struggle and strength. Before the masses came in with their auto tunes and pop divas, hip-hop was the voice of urban America, allowing young men and women in the concrete jungle a poetic voice, that allowed others into their world. Artists such as Grandmaster Flash, Run DMC and Public Enemy paved the way for today's chart toppers. Rhymes about what their daily life endured, with everything from teen pregnancy, racism to political movements.

 

A man is supposed to take care of his children, and the mother (s), whether it be singular or plural.

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 is currently showcasing 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)

 

Shows in comparison such as Sister Wives, show four mothers and I can't even count how many kids, one could make the argument that TLC promotes ‘polygamy’, one could argue that shows such as ‘Bad Girls Club’ promotes ‘violence’ amongst women, or how about the infamous ‘Jersey Shore’, for five seasons we have watched young men and women drink till they puke, having a magnitude of sexual whoring behavior, making the argument that MTV promotes ‘alcoholism and unhealthy sexual behavior’, but the difference is their race? Come on America!

      I feel like most of the people on this site, there are so many shows out there that are “wrong " (which is what people say his show was) and they are on air. Plenty of shows that are degrading and morally wrong but they are still on. I watched the trailer and I liked it and I wanted to see more. Also being that I am a black woman I saw nothing degrading about his reality and that's what it is "his reality". Many people live with multiple women that birthed their children. So this is a reality that you can see in your own town, so I didn't see anything wrong with it. If you didn't like it or want to" glorify" it then you didn’t have to tune in, period end of discussion.

      The man is trying to take care of his kids at least. No one takes reality tv seriously anyway. Banning it draws attention to something that shouldn't be an issue.
