The libertarian-conservative blogger goes in on the controversial proposed reality TV show: "I tried to tell myself that the existence of such television 'All my babies' mamas' was all a bad dream. Do we really need to celebrate the 72% out-of-wedlock birthrate and the tendency by some men to breed like animals? Then again, Maury Povich has made a career using the phrase: 'You are NOT the father.'"
Mr. Durden's op-ed continues his commentary: "The image of black men cannot get any lower (though I should be careful saying that). I could easily go along with the conspiracy theorists who say that the destruction of the black male image is being done intentionally. But if it didn't exist there would be no reason to talk about it. If we didn't tolerate and even embrace the worst in our society, the entertainment industry would tell a different story. They sell it because we buy it."
