Man with 22 Kids by 14 Women May Get His Own Reality Show

By  |  284 Comments


by Dr. Boyce Watkins

Here’s a newsflash:  Being a responsible and intelligent black man will typically NOT get you on TV.  If you want to be on television, you should do something utterly ridiculous and embarrassing, like having 22 kids with 14 different women while maintaining no job and no prospects for the future.  You should also make sure that you don’t know your kids’ names and that you refer to your children as your “siblings.”

This is going to make you a hit in mainstream media, where the buffoonish black man is the one that the world loves to see.

Meet Orlando Shaw, likely the most fertile man in the history of the state of Tennessee.  Orlando calls himself a Romeo because he has such a way with the ladies, and has gotten famous for spraying kids everywhere as if his p*enis were a loaded AK-47.

“Do the ladies like you?” he was recently asked.

“The ladies love me. They don’t like me. They love me,” said Shaw.

Not only does Shaw love to make babies, he loves to make a mess of his own life.  He owes thousands in child support, and the state has spent thousands taking care of the kids that he can make but chooses not to maintain.  How can he take care of his kids if he’s so busy out creating new ones?  Falling this far behind on your child support can also keep you one foot out of a jail cell.

“I was just young and ambitious and I love women. Hey, you can’t knock no man for loving a woman,” said Shaw.

I don’t blame Shaw for loving women, most men do.  What I blame him for (and the people who raised him) is acting without considering the consequences of his poor choices on the children he has created.  I also wonder about the women see no problem having unprotected s*ex with a man whose private parts are more well-traveled than Delta Airlines.

These women may also need to take a moment of pause when their kids are spouting the words “are you my daaaaaddy?” at every mailman, police officer and repairman who walks through the door.  No mother who loves her children would ever expose them to this kind of confusion and blatant humiliation: Any woman with working body parts can have a baby, but not every baby maker deserves the title of mother.  A mother should be a giver a life: spiritually, physically and psychologically.  But sometimes, we can inadvertently abort the potential of our children before they are even born.

Shaw’s plan to take care of his 22 little seeds is to get paid from a production deal that he’s signed with a studio in Los Angeles.

I am not going to spend my time talking about Mr. Shaw, who has enough problems.  The poor man has been convinced that he was meant to be a “war horse” (as he calls himself) who is wired to fertilize the entire planet.  I’m not sure where he got this self-image, but I know men who also think of themselves in the same way.  I would imagine that songs with choruses like “I wish I could f*ck every girl in the world” don’t help, courtesy of Lil Wayne.  Marketing is powerful, for it promotes a lifestyle – that’s why I spend so much time discussing the impact of toxic messages in hip-hop.

But the deeper issues here are two fold.  First, we should be stunned and depressed by how many people choose to have kids without having any kind of plan for how those children are going to be taken care of. The trauma that a child experiences when their father is either unwilling or unable to provide and protect him/her stays with them for a lifetime, and leads to many of the horrible outcomes we see in our communities.

My argument is that while there are some people who simply make one or two mistakes, there are others who just don’t give a d*amn.  Like drunk drivers who don’t think before getting behind the wheel, there is no concern for how many lives are wrecked when we make a mess and don’t stick around to clean it up.  In some ways, this kind of behavior is a form of terrorism in our community, where the lives of good, law-abiding citizens are impacted by those who choose not to care about those around them.  These men and women can be as much of a problem as the KKK itself.

As they say in New York when it comes to terrorists, “If you see something, say something.” This means that if you’ve got that brother, sister, uncle, aunt, son or daughter who is having one child after another with no plan to take care of them, at least let them know that you are uncomfortable with their behavior.   Part of what disappoints me about Mr. Shaw’s predicament is that he seems just a little too happy about it.

The second point here is that we should be disgusted that the Orlando Shaws get far more media attention than the millions of responsible, intelligent, hard-working black men who love and provide for their children.   When the spotlight is bright on the dude who has 22 kids, it tends to block out the more appropriate shine that should be thrust onto the disciplined father of three who loved his children’s mother enough to keep his family together.  These men exist, and they are the ones who hold our communities together.

But media is like a virus that infects those who absorb it.  Every time an Orlando Shaw or Shawty Lo is put on national television, there are millions of little boys who see this imagery and believe it to be an acceptable way to raise a family.  Young men are having a difficult time learning productive forms of manhood when everything they see on television tells them to destroy their own life and the lives of those they supposedly care about.  This is why some major media outlets need to be confronted in the same way we would confront a hospital responsible for injecting Syphilis into African American patients.   The only difference is that the disease is psychological and not physical, but the impact can be just as devastating.

Once again, I’m not entirely angry at Mr. Shaw, for he is just a product of a sad and sick society.  But what I do find disappointing are the structural influences that teach black boys to remain little boys instead of growing up to be men.  That’s what rips my heart out.

    He is not even attractive…I would hate to see the women of these kids…they must have very LOW self esteem to subject themselves to all the germs & bacteria he has to have from having unprotected sex! I mean he most likely is still having sexual relations with all or some of them!!!!

    This is absurd. This is the result of ‘loving our sons and raising our daughters’.

    Who cares if this man is attractive or not? He’s a disgrace! What can we do? Don’t even THINK about watching this show. Anyone who creates this many children and can’t do a thing to support them doesn’t deserve an ounce of attention. The women who laid down with this man should be ashamed of themselves but they’re grown. The children who are the products are the innocent. This fool will take the money and run. DO NOT WATCH THIS PROGRAM. The kids will not benefit and neither will you!Seems reality shows will feature anything and insult us all in the process.

    Don’t blame the people who raised him. Those people may have raised him to be a responsible man. Grown people make their own decisions. He made the decision to not use protection.

    Calling Sabrina Lamb. Perhaps it is time to stop this clown the way Shanta Low was stopped. This stereotypical buffoonery has no place being televised. This will only further poison the minds of those right wing talk show hosts like Sean Hammity and Bill O’Reilly and will only further more punitive legislation by the tea party types who often feast on these stereotypes to put out their vicious agenda.

    Speaking of dirty laundry, lets see a program about white males donating their fluids for a lil extra pocket cash, Viking sp^$#m seems to be very popular with unmarried, lesbian woman.

    ….HEADLINE: Why Women Want Viking Sperm

    The quality of their semen is “exceedingly high,” he adds, since the young donors are “in the prime of health.” One of the most enthusiastic donors at Cryos has so far produced 101 children … and counting.

    This is one white male, most produce at least a few dozen children that they never see, support or even care to know………now that is a program I would watch.

    These children who are now bastards will never feel the love and joy of a full family. When the question or comment finaly comes from friends or relatives or whoever, it will incite hate and anger in those children. I mean i would be angry myself knowing that i’m a product of lust and not love.

    “he is just a product of a sad and sick society” No, if he was than all of us would be like this too. This sick man is making the choice to do this to himself and his kids, its about personal responsibility. He knows he can’t take care of these kids or any more that he will have, but he chooses to leave them to fend for themselves while he moves on to the next ‘whoo’

    It is really sad that this awful situation needs to be played out in full view of the public. He obviously is being used as pawn in yet another bid to perptuate the negative image of the irresponsible black father. He, the women and children will be looked upon as buffoons. The network will get ratings at the expense of these ignorant individuals and the African American Community. Our people already have an unhealty safe hatred issue and here is a chance to allow that to increase.

    With all the bad people in the White Community, it is amazing that you don’t see shows that showcase them in their worse light. Honey Boo-Boo is wholesome compared to this. This man is doing it for the money, but this show is going to cost so many so much more in the long run. He is not intelligent enough to recognize this.

    The money they get will not be utilized properly either because the adults are idiots.

    Very sad situation.

    This man is a pathetic fool, and a dangerous one at that. The women that have slept with him must indeed have very very low self-esteem, and that is regrettable. Sexuakl realtions are not as easy as buying sweets in a store; you should take the time to know the person, and noone in their right mind, as the female commentators have shown here, would want to sleep with such a man, and without protection. Do they care for their own health? Does this man care for his? What went wrong in his life?

    Then he will be able to care for the kids, if he doesn’t, JAIL TIME.

      Sandra, how will putting him in jail help the children?

    First of all, I would not watch the trash! Second, he is about one of the biggest idiots I have ever read about and third, those 14 women are about as stupid as he is for having sex with him. Why would any woman have children by a man that has not taken care of the one/ones he had by the first woman. Women today do not think very much of themselves, how sad that there are 14 women out there on welfare due to one man! Does not say much for you as women! But when you lay down with dogs, you will get up with fleas..

  20. Nora

    July 25, 2013 at 1:01 pm

    I would love to see a program showing the white women who flock to prisons to marry black men who are never getting out of jail, make their families part of the program as well:)

    How about a program with the people from the Appalachian grandfathers having children with their granddaughters.

    The only positive thing about this news is that perhaps, this non-too-bright person (not man) would be able to pay his delinquent child support, IF he pays it. Maybe the courts should step in and take the money in set-asides, as is done with Income Tax Refunds when support payments are owed.

    July 25, 2013 at 1:44 pm

    So we marched and shouted about the injustice done to Trayvon Martin, then we attack the man who had the children and not the institutions who are feeding us deviant males, who by the way will be seen as normal for African American males. Gangsta rap, woman hating and gun violence are placed in the minds of millions of people concerning African American males, our response, blame those males………….stand back a minute and ask yourself, are you seeing any media with positive lives of African American males, and who decides the programming, it is not rocket science. If you support those who look like Trayvon, then do not be jerked like a dog on a chain, take a step back and engage in the real mission of supporting our young black men.


    July 25, 2013 at 7:07 pm

    Did’nt Lifetime try to start a show similiar called ” All my babies Mamas” and was shut down before it even started? So why can’t the same thing be done with this coon? I just think that it is odd that they would even try to do it again.

    July 26, 2013 at 7:18 am

    I don’t blame him for having all those kids. I blame the women, after hearing he had at least six kids,the idiots who laid with him to produce kids number seven through twenty one are the ones to blame. He obviously had no way to support those kids yet they continued to have unprotected s#x with him. Maybe he was used as a donor,in that case he need not say he is a “father” if he was in ”relationships” the women are fools.


    July 26, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    maeby if we let him have his 5 min. of fame he will see the way ppl really see him and make a change for the better
