    Does it seem crazy that in this day and age, that the media is patting white people on the back who have a ridiculous amount of children. I just finished watching a "18 kids and Counting" marathon and I just don't get it. And think of the instant celebrity of Jon and Kate and the Octomom.

    You think Keisha, Boneqweesha even Big Mama (who is the reason you have 15 aunts and uncles) in the hood would gain such noteriety from having a bunch of kids? Just saying.



    Peace

    Excellent link CB!

    I just find it odd that white folks are celebrated for children while Black folks are told that we are being ignorant and a drain on society. SMH. I smell Eugenincs....

    Y'all need to read CB's link. GOOD STUFF!!!!



    Peace

    Yes Sister Bootzey, the double standard often spoke about is in full effect in this area too.

    What's interesting though, is they aint problee making those babies naturally, but are oftentimes using fertility drugs. It's almost become the only way they can produce. Remember just a few years ago we useta hear about their low birth rates, now there's an explosion of 'em.

    Sister Cherry ... thanks for the link ... great story! :toast:

    :heart:
