'All My Babies' Mamas' Reveals Liberals' Opinion of Blacks

By Lloyd Marcus · Jan. 28, 2013

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 unchaperoned 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 impregnaters were considered dishonorable men.

Today in 2013, the liberal Oxygen channel 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 “sellouts”.

Long suffering courageous black conservatives offer blacks “real” empowerment; liberation from crippling victim-hood 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.

For decades, liberals (Democrats, Hollywood and the media) have been and continue serving blacks excrement while calling it filet mignon. For example: In the name of compassion, liberals routinely demean and even undermine the intellect and character of blacks. Liberals insist standards must be lowered for blacks to get the job or pass the test. Americans are required to show a photo-ID to board an airplane, cash a check and countless other situations. And yet, liberals say showing a photo-ID to vote is racist and disenfranchises blacks.

Will someone please tell me what the heck is so challenging about us blacks finding our way to acquire a photo-ID? By the way, I am black and I have one – a photo-ID. I guess liberals think I am remarkable; similar to the apes in “Planet of The Apes” discovering that Charlton Heston, a human, could speak.

Any suggestion of blacks performing on an equal playing field with whites or blacks assuming personal responsibility for their lives and behavior is deemed racist by liberals.

I suspect Oxygen was shocked by the public outcry against, “All My Babies' Mamas”. Liberals think: What's up with that? Oxygen is cool showing that they “be” down with the hood and in-tune with authentic blackness in America. Oxygen probably considers “All My Babies' Mamas” to be the modern urban version of “Ozzie and Harriet”. Okay, so the show promotes lax-ed morals and husband-less households which breed crime, school dropouts, gangs and poverty. Only out-of-touch fuddy duddy Uncle Tom black Conservatives and racist white Conservatives would find the show objectionable.

Liberals (Democrats and the media) have been peddling crap and pimping government programs that cripple blacks for years. And yet, liberals are thought of as heroes to blacks while they beat up on black conservatives for spreading the truth that blacks are diverse, self-reliant, bright and capable of much more.

By the way, political consultants say to win elections, Republicans/Conservatives must get with the program. They say we must embrace the new “amoral” culture and liberal thinking that produces shows like, “All My Babies' Mamas”. I say, “Balderdash!”

I wanted to name my second child, Lloyd; but my beautiful wife, would not have it. She wanted Timothy, instead. Love the next to-the-last par., "Libs have been peddling crap and pimping gov. programs that cripple blacks for years." God bless you, Lloyd, you sound a lot like my brother, Boyd!

So did white kids. Parents were set up to model their lives and their morals after Ozzie and Harriet and Ward and June Cleaver. That was not a bad thing since at least someone was using morality and decency as a model. Today the whole idea of responsible parenting, love for your spouse and commitment to the family seems to be under ridicule. There is nothing wrong with June and Harriet. I wanted to be just like them and have kids that eventually surrendered to the guidance of their parents. Better to idolize these women than Hillary Clinton, Michelle Obama, or Nancy Pelosi. Sorry for deviating from the discussion a bit.

Wasn't Biden who said the Conservatives would "keep ya'll tied up in chains"? I totally concur with your assessment, Sir! Some of the finest, most educated, wise, entrepreneurial men and women I've ever met were black. Personally, I would be honored to shake the hand of Allen West. I've met Colin Powell and sat in on briefings with him and I was quite impressed. His shift in political support over the years has me question his judgment in such matters.

Wayne in Hinesville, GA replied:

Sarge, I was in Germany when he took over 5th Corps. I attended a briefing for all senior NCO's in the 3rd Armored Division and it was apparent even then he was more of politician than a soldier. He should not be calling himself a Republican when he voted twice for Odumbo. Can't tell me skin color didn't play a part in that decision.

"Balderdash" probably isn't an expression heard much around the 'hood these days.

Mr. Marcus, I appreciate your perspective. My great hope is that someday your view will be widely shared among our black population. Liberalism, by its nature, eventually destroys whatever it comes into contact with. Unfortunately, it often masks itself as something else before sedating and then destroying its victims.

Well said.. To paraphrase Proverbs22:6
"Train up a child in the wy he should NOT be and when he is old he will not depart from it." Works both ways. That's what is happening today, and not just in Black communities.
