POWERFUL ORG "COLOR OF CHANGE" JUMPS INTO 'BABYMAMA" FIGHT



We are very fond of the Organization"Color  of Change" !  We look forward to emails we receive about  their latest Social Activism campaigns they are spearheading with a priority geared towards communities of color. With them taking helm of the Wheel,  this despicable show just might get canceled after all!

Statement from Color of  Change: ”Leaked online footage from the pilot showing Shawty Lo struggling to name his children — and one mother rebranding each woman with nicknames like “Fighter Baby Mama,” “Shady Baby Mama,” “Baby Mama from h**l” and “Wanna-Be-Bougie Baby Mama” — drew immediate criticism from Black people across the country.2 Despite the backlash, network executives remain intent on moving forward with the reality project.” 

"Images like these, that present Black men and women as hyper-sexual and unfit parents, can result in real world consequences for our families, including less attention from doctors, harsher sentencing by judges, lower likelihood of being hired or admitted to school, lower odds of getting loans, and a higher likelihood of getting shot by police. Join ColorofChange.org in urging Oxygen and its advertisers to cancel "All My Babies' Mamas." Visit their website to sign the Petition: http://colorofchange.org/campaign/tell-oxygen-and-its-advertisers-dont-exploit-black-families/
