Ulysses "Butch" Slaughter, Founder of The Odyssey Project, welcomes Sabrina Lamb to discuss an international petition to stop The Oxygen Network from producing and airing a show called "All My Babies Mamas" featuring rapper Shawty Lo.

Shawty Lo is a rapper from Atlanta whose current claim to fame is that he has 11 children by 10 different mothers. Lamb, an author and entrepreneur, is working through Change.org to galvanize international opposition against airing "All My Babies Mamas."

On her Change.org petition website, Lamb says:

"This is not just an attack on African-American parents and children....but ALL PARENTS AND CHILDREN!

As dysfunctional and violent as so-called reality shows are, could you ever imagine a one hour spectacle where 11 children are forced to witness their 10 unwed mothers clamor for financial support, emotional attention and sexual reward from Shawty-Lo, the apathetic ‘father’?

Oxygen Media announced their proposed reality show in December 2012.

"Oxygen will give fans an intimate look at unconventional families with larger than life personalities and real emotional stakes," says Cori Abraham, Senior Vice President of Development, Oxygen Media. "’All My Babies’ Mamas’ will be filled with outrageous and authentic over-the-top moments that our young, diverse female audience can tweet and gossip about."

Lamb responds by saying:

 Tragically, this day has come.

 What is the difference between this train wreck and the other reality trash which clog the airwaves?
