"OXYGEN" RESPONDS TO OUTRAGE OF "ALL MY BABY'S MAMAS"..


 So I have signed the petition to get this Coonery CANCELED. One person brought it to my attention that Oprah is a founding owner of the Oxygen Network, which for some reason I knew but could not recall at the moment. I knew something was bothering me about the name "Oxygen"  I have been trying to investigate if she is still, so I sent her a Tweet last night and asked her about the controversial show and inquired about her relationship with the network. We'll surely let you know if she responds!
Oxygen Network's STATEMENT: “Oxygen’s one-hour special in development is not meant to be a stereotypical representation of everyday life for any one demographic or cross section of society. It is a look at one unique family and their complicated, intertwined life. Oxygen Media’s diverse team of creative executives will continue developing the show with this point of view."
Notice how they make sure to use the term "diverse"? To let you know there are black folks who were creative enough to consent to this mess. 
Ofcourse the hypocritical organization, The NAACP,  has yet to respond to the petition against All My Babies’ Mamas which has now grown to over 15,000 signatures!  Sign Petition!
