All My Babies’ Mamas Reveals Liberals’ Opinion of Blacks

by Christopher Paslay

Conservative African American writer Lloyd Marcus exposes liberals’ typical bigotry of lowered expectations regarding minorities.

From “All My Babies’ Mamas Reveals Liberals Opinion of Blacks” by Lloyd Marcus, published today on American Thinker:

As a teen in the 1960s, I idolized Jim, my slightly older street-smart cousin who lived in a tough area of Baltimore. Murders were common at the bar on the corner from his home. I was Jim’s nerdy, naïve preacher’s-kid cousin who visited from suburbia. Sleepovers at Jim’s home in the city were exciting. “Downtown, where all the lights are bright…” You know the song.

Walking from the Yakamee joint, “Casanova” Jim coached, “Just say you love them.” While I wanted my experience to go beyond the stimulation of excessively close slow dancing to Marvin Gaye songs at un-chaperoned dark basement parties, lying to a girl to have my way with her did not set well. Doggone home training! I was nagged by the truth that it is wrong to use someone solely for my pleasure, not caring about how it affected her.

“Train up a child in the way he should go and when he is old, he will not depart from it” (Proverbs 22:6). In college, I tried to muzzle my conscience with drugs and alcohol. Fortunately, I did not produce any children out of wedlock.

Tom, another cousin of mine, had babies all over town, which destroyed his life. He was incarcerated numerous times for non-payment of child support. In those days, serial impregnators were considered dishonorable men.

Today, in 2013, the liberal Oxygen channel had planned to celebrate dishonorable behavior as representative of the “hip” modern black experience with a new reality show titled All My Babies’ Mamas. Canceled due to public outcry, the star of the show was a rapper whose serial sperm-donating produced eleven babies by ten women.

All My Babies’ Mamas is characteristic of liberals’ typical bigotry of lowered expectations regarding minorities. Liberals accuse black conservatives who reject liberal racist stereotypes of being traitors to their race, trying to be white, and “selling out.”

Long-suffering courageous black conservatives offer blacks real empowerment: liberation from crippling victimhood and entitlement mindsets. Due to liberals’ resentment/hatred for America and traditional values, they are repulsed when black conservatives encourage blacks to get an education, work hard, revive traditional black community morality, and go for their dreams.

In the 1950s, most black kids grew up in two-parent households. Today, most black kids grow up fatherless as a result of liberal policies that destroyed the black family. Only half of black males graduate high school. Clearly, something is wrong in the black community, and it ain’t the white man’s fault. . . .

God bless Lloyd Marcus for having the courage to reject today’s suffocating and racist groupthink coming from the American left.

  1. Chris,

    I don’t watch reality TV except for Amazing Race. I love that show. But saying that one stupid reality TV show represents an entire viewpoint of the left about one group of people is crazy. How about Honey Boo Boo? Does this mean the left has low expectations of people from the south? I think there is a show about boot leggers. Does the media have low expectations of them too? I think there are now hundreds of reality TV shows on many different cable channels. Their motive- make money and make it as fast as you can. I don’t think the producers of that show had any feelings one way or the other about black Americans.

    If you want to talk about low expectations of students just talk to a parent of child who has been labeled special ed in any public school in the USA.

    I have tutored these students for the last 10 years and seen what that label does to these kids.

    I still believe much of the trouble the black student has in school goes back to the kindergarten years when the reading instruction we use does not work. From there it is all downhill. Yes environment, parents, etc etc play a role in a child’s life but using the incorrect instruction magnifies these problems. Use better instruction and at least the child has a chance. Right now, NO CHANCE for many kids in our schools.

    I can’t control the left or the right and personally don’t care anymore about labeling these groups as this or that. It is getting us nowhere. Congress is useless. Teach the kids to read, do math and write a paragraph and let the student do the rest with his skills.


  2. Hey Kathy,

    Ironically, I pretty much agree with everything you say. I just figured I’d link the reality TV article from American Thinker because it presents the points made by a conservative African American, and conservative minorities have my highest respect because the prejudice they face from everyone–especially their own community–is insanely intense. Talk about discrimination!
