Ignorance 101: Man Has 21 Kids with 11 Women; Can’t Support them with Minimum Wage Job

 

Quick thought from Dr Boyce Watkins:

Perhaps we should call out ignorance when we see it.  This man has had 21 kids with 11 different women and can’t support the kids with his minimum wage job.  What should be done to stop this kind of behavior?

Here are five quick thoughts for the brothers who collect baby’s mamas like they are Star Wars figurines….this is also for the women who choose to love them:

 1)      Be prepared to be broke for the rest of your life.  Child support is no joke, and no one is going to feel sorry for you when you try to build a new life and get half of your paycheck garnished by the state.  It may seem quite empowering to get all that female attention when you’re young, but with each bad decision, you are paving the way to a lifetime of grief.

2)      By having a bunch of kids without the time or money to take care of them, you risk turning them into menaces to society. Kids without involved parents are more likely to go to prison, drop out of school, or end up on welfare.   Our parents are our first teachers, and you are teaching your kids how to destroy themselves.  Kids should succeed BECAUSE of their parents’ decisions, not IN SPITE of them.

3)      There is no way that any man or woman who does this to their kids can actually love them.  Let’s be clear – you love sex….you love reproduction….you might love saying that you have children (as if they are an accessory or possession, like a nice car), but you can’t possibly love your kids if you are bringing them into the world in a situation that is designed for their demise.  For any man or woman who makes a long line of bad relationship decisions, the words “I love my baby” need to be backed up with constructive action.

4)      Women are just as responsible as men.  When you mate with an irresponsible man that you don’t know very well, very few of us are going to be sympathetic when you realize that he’s a dog.   Mothers show love for their unborn children by only giving access to their wombs to men who’ve truly earned it, not the wannabe thug, playa-playa who takes her out to a nice dinner.  The swag that charmed your panties off may be the same love potion he’s using on a dozen other women at the same damn time.   Older women should warn younger women of the consequences of poor decision-making.

5)      Note to those who love the feeling of sex without a condom:  The rates of HIV, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, HPV, Syphilis and Herpes are shooting through the roof in the black community.  Most of those who are infected thought that these diseases only happen to other people.  Has your partner gotten a full range of STD tests?  Did you ask him/her?  Did you see the results yourself?  Do you know (or even care) what that person is doing when they are not in the bed with you?  These questions might keep you out of an early grave….women like brave AIDS activist Rae Lewis Thornton (who speculates that her HIV status caused her to be disrespected and kicked out of the Delta Sigma Theta sorority this week) are trying to tell us something.  What’s most interesting is that there are thousands of other women just like Rae who have remained silent about their status.   It’s time for us to start having these difficult and taboo conversations.

    Yet another dreadful example of the legacy of slavery! Imagine how valuable he would have been to his master. This is not an isolated incidence. I have known several black men in my lifetime who have provided sperm for double-digit offspring with multiple women and were “beating their chests” about it. Shameful!

    Anyone who thinks this is the ‘legacy of slavery’ is lost and uneducated. Men have been having babies with wives and concubines since the beginning of time, even before Moses.

    He just took it back to ancient times, except we live in a day and age where white European mandates dictate how we live and how much we make and try to put a limit on families like we live in China with a one-child mandate.

    Maybe he shouldn’t be having these babies with these women, but what are they doing to protect themselves? It’s called birth control, or Just Say No … especially if he won’t get himself neutered.

    Nobody can do anything about it, nor should they. It’s up to him and them. In the meantime, trust me … they’ll figure it out.

    Get out of their business.

      These people will be collecting welfare, which is all of our business. these are my tax dollars, which means folks in their. Usiness. If they are on the system and can handle “their business” we can stay out of it. This is totally irresponsible to the unfortunate children who are born into that. what a bum rap for a kid!

      Interesting, indeed, the perspectives folk have! I suppose you would join that cadre of some Blacks and many whites who proclaim that descendents of slaves should forget about the past and just get on with life in America. A convenient and easy excuse. Of course, there is no justification for such situations such as these, biblical or otherwise. While we should not dwell on the past, be admonished that folk who don’t know their past and heritage have little or no chance of forecasting and planning for the future. We should not be ashamed of our passage through the evils of Slavery by attempting to discount its effects. Rather we should be proud of our ancestors who have thrived and persevered in America though it. Be careful about judging others so flippantly.

    I think there has be education and outreach. Young men and women need to be raised with standards. My widowed mom raised me with the idea that *if* I ever decided I wanted kids (given I was on record by age 10 saying NO kids for me! Watching her struggle the first two years after my father’s death with six kids was all the lesson I needed about limiting kids) that such kids deserved a father who 1.) would provide for them from infancy to legal adulthood and 2.) who would be involved in their daily lives throughout that time. She also raised me that if a man was unwilling to commit to that, then I damn well better NOT be letting him get a baby on me, because I also deserved better than that.

    I can’t think it’s a sign of manhood to be fathering children when you can’t take care of them and provide for them. It’s unfair and cruel what this guy is doing to the kids and their mothers and the long term consequences they will pay because of him will be both brutal and unfair. I think community leaders need to step up and say enough. From stuff I read, I know a lot of the motivation is a sense of fatalism.. that young man doesn’t expect to live long past his youth and leaving a piece of himself behind is a sort of legacy. That fatalism is borne out of the reality of violence in the lives of young black men as well as poor Hispanics and even whites, but mostly in black lives. So one of the areas that has to be targeted for change is black on black violence and reclaiming a purposeful life even in the midst of poverty.

      Most responses to this article are just as ignorant as the young man out there trying to populate the Hood SSMH! Unfortunately, he probably did take care of those women and those children at some point because he was probably hustling and just like he wanted to plant seeds anticipating his own murder, those females probably all had a wish/plan to have have a baby by “—” ((hoodrat ambitions. The sad thing is that now he must be trying to live right so humbled himself and got his first job and realizing that he has to figure out how to use that hustling mentality and start a lucrative business so everybody can eat. We need community leaders who understand the environment and mentality that gets us caught up in slave living-to-die mentality (thus no concern about AIDS). If this sounds crazy, enlighten yourself and listen closely to the words of some of these young rappers, the tracks that don’t get radio play. Our people need to be embraced and shown / by those of us who’ve survived their present reality, that their lives are valuable and they’re worthy, and so are therir children. That’s how effective change happens.

    This has NOTHING TO DO WITH SLAVERY!! We can’t make any judgements on this behavior until you peel back the “onion” with regard to this man’s upbringing and social situation….obviously the young man appears to lack discipline. Next, what about the women involved?? Obviously they knew something was afoot if he wasn’t investing any time into their relationships! This is yet another interesting case study of irresponsible male behavior by modern standards….the same in light of other reports of white fertility doctors who have used their sperm to impregnate clients unknowingly…..

    • CJ May 6, 2012 at 10:59 pm

      While I don’t agree with the ‘legacy of slavery’ as a catch all, when you say ‘peel back the onion’, you lend credence to that. Slavery separated the black family for so long, that for MANY, it became the norm. Generation after generation were raised in a matriarchal home and men without fathers do things with a sense of arrested development…like fathering double-digit children with double-digit women.

      Ultimately, there is personal responsibility that has to be involved, no matter how bad the circumstances. You will not get much in the way of sympathy if you augment your circumstances with poor choices. That’s life. And after three or four children, it’s time to start making different decisions. This man clearly did not.

    It is the business of others when taxpayers have to pay for their medical expenses through welfare. Slavery can’t be used as an excuse in 2012. What about personal responsibility? The children don’t ask to come here, but are at the mercy of men and women who bring them into the world with no regard as to how they will provide for them. That’s not fair. Birth control is a lot cheaper than taking care of a battalion of kids. Clearly, no one was thinking about that in this situation. It’s common sense– don’t have more kids if you don’t have the means to look after them. It’s sad that some of us excuse this behavior and don’t hold each other accountable anymore. As a people, we need to do better, but sadly, there are some of us who willingly stay blind.

    It’s situations like this that bring out a Republican in me. There should be some sort of site where you can look up men like this. Obviously these women have sought assistance from their county since he can’t afford to pay them. That means welfare assistance to help raise their kids. If the government put a limit on hoe much assistance they would give and mandate birth control to recieve it, maybe there would only be 11 kids by 11 women. You get one time to be stupid and in love. These women clearly had multiple births by a man they knew couldn’t support the first child they bore with him. IIf you want to KEEP having babies with a fool then its on YOU. IF government cuts off the money, maybe women will make better choices.

    Well, this is interesting because it does take two people to make a baby or 21 babies. This man is sad because he doesn’t understand that birth control is available and he is having unprotected sex with women that are having unprotected sex in this day and age. It is also sad for the children that have to grow up knowing that their father was a whore and their mothers were only concerned with getting screwed by this man who has no self control regardless. All of them have very low self esteem and very low self worth. The children are born for a reason and hopefully one of them will find a curefor cancer or aids or world peace or even become President! I hope the Mom’s take their children to another state, get jobs and maybe find a husband that will help support someone else’s kid and forget about the $1.98 a month that the child father is able to give them. We need to pray for the kids and wish the best for the mothers and the father. UNPROTECTED SEX in 2012 is not a good thing, condoms prevent STD’s, HIV and of course multiple pregnancies!

    @Reneegede it was mandated in biblical times that in order to have multiple wives and many children one must have the means to provide for them all. He and his conquests are unmorally adjusted adults at the least. It actually is more like a slave boast I’ve read more books on slavery than most people on the planet and yes top buck slaves were rented or borrowed for a fee to the local slave owners to propagate his female flock. Husbands of these women could do no more than leave the house or face trouble from the overseer or slavemaster. Most slave owners would impregnate a select few women slaves in their ownership to make house servants and drivers, that’s why the house servant was mainly trusted by the owner. He the owner would then remind them that they’re not like the field slave and should look down upon them all.

Has anyone told this uneducated idiot that since he can not afford to adequately support these children that he has a moral obligation to wear RUBBERS to prevent future births ? If I were his mother…I would castrate him myself !!!

    After being subjected to centuries of genocide, I believe the more black people procreate the better. Who knows what greatness may come from a child. The chances are increased for our survival as a race of people. Being born black is not a crime. We are only 40 million, up from 22 million in 1960, 4 million at the end of slavery. 100 million by 2050 should be our goal. Keep loving black men and black women. Whatever race your partner is, the child will be African American. It is for our political, social and economic survival that we repopulate to make up for 150,000 young people killed in drug and gang related violence since 1980 and for 2 million black men in the prime of their child bearing years in prison. We are involved in a war against genocide and depopulation of our race on an international basis. Make beautiful, intelligent babies that will grow up and change the world, not conform to it.

      While being born black is not a crime, forcing a child to be born into poverty is a moral crime, especially when the point of the child is to boast a person childish ego.

      As to your theory about increasing the black population, know that societies are healthier when the birth rate is as close to replacement rates as possible. Also, educated women who use birth control are the basis of healthy societies.

      Please don’t count the success of black people by the numbers who are reproduced. That’s just ignorance.

      How do you expect that an arrogant fool like this man, and his victimized partners are going to produce “beautiful, intelligent babies that will grow up and change the world”?

    First let me say this black male or black guy (he does not qualify as a BLACK MAN) has a real deep self esteem problem,this you can even see in the NFL and the NBA I want call names, but people know who I am talkiing about .this stuff stems from SLAVERY ,because doing that time all black males had to do was make (kids,babies,children) and the master took care of them.the reason I say this is some slave mess is ,because doing the aftermath of slavery there was nothing put in place to heal Black people psychologically this is why so many are still messed up and have no real cultural ,identity (other then what someone else has taught us to call ourselves (NIGGA=NIGGER) LIKE SAYING (TOMATOE OR TOMOTTOE) its the same thing. it is impossible to release people from a cesspool such as Jim Crow era,Civil rights and yes Slavery era and expect them to be ready to compete with everybody else like nothing has happened to them.I applaud every brother who has real knowledge of self not just in words ,but in deeds.I hate to say this ,but the women who constantly lay up and allow fool ,nigga,dog types,drug dealers ,illerate ass holes ,and all the other losers we have throughout the black community will only continue to lower the RACE,and allow Blacks to continue to be hated and despised by every other ethic group in AMERICA!including ourselves which is self hate and causes self destruction.you will not survive in America as a group without self preservation just watch,and I does not mattere how many babies are being made considerwho’s making them which equals corporate profits for the detention correctional facillities.PEACE-N-WAKE UP!

    I am really shocked so many people are quick to blame the women! So on average they had 1.5 kids each, and somehow we blame THEM for all 21? We have no idea about the relationships he had with these women, or under what circumstances these children were born. We don’t even know if the women were aware of each other and their children, so how can we judge them? Sure, they certainly could have used better judgement but why are we so quick to take blame off him and place it on the women?

    Not making any excuses for him, but at what point do women take responsibility for their bodies, their lives. They r the ones most likely to be birthing & raising the children (if grandma or the state aren’t raising them). It’s 2012 R ppl living in caves?! You mean to tell me we still don’t get that having unprotected, non birth control use sex inevitably ends up with pregnancy( not to mention STDs! How else does a man who has not much going for him be a man?! He screws his way to what he deems manhood. The women R no different. To many women have multiple children by as many men as they have children. And I do agree with Reginald Christopher & Tewdrowos above, this IS remnant of the buck, the breeder, insane practices from slavery. There R many unfortunate residual psychological effects still with us from slavery. Joy Degruy hit it on the head in describing our pathology as Post Traumatic Slave Syndrome. Too many of us R using sex, drugs, alcohol and dear I say religion as a way to sooth our disappointments, sadness&despair.

    there is nothing special about this man. infact, any 14 year old can do what he did. the real story is the women who allowed themselves to be impregnated by this man. there will not be any 21 kids if they didn’t sleep with him. this rampant child birth will only stop when women start taking control over what they allow to happened to their bodies. your body, your choice, your responsibility.

    He’s just one example. I know a man that has 26 children with 21 different women. He has only two he’s supporting because he has to, their momma abandoned them like he abandoned the others. Just like so many of his ilk, he reappears after they have become adults to interact with any of them. Neutering them is not an option because of the Bill of Rights. It says life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That’s too much happiness I think.

I’m a wife & mother of two (6 & 19 month old) & get “food share” because my husband doesn’t make over $4500 a month at this time & my husband is self-employed so we all are eligible to get state Heath care like we dam sure supposed to. I worked in the corporate field for several years before being homemaker/entrepreneur & regardless I always believed in universal Heath care & dont trust America’s health care system, that ish needs to change & us as a people have to do it. We shouldn’t be worrying about no dam tax dollars we oughta be concerned with these ignorant people & demand we all have the right to be happy & healthy. Have universal health care & education like other great countries! The point is there are innocent children as well as poor lost adults who are a product of much pain & misguidance.. What is needed is compassion.

      Your situation is so different. We’re talking about those who are irresponsible; who see sex as only a game; who have no clue of the consequences; who use baby-makin’ as a way of a right of passage (I call it a wrong of passage!), etc. You and your family have a very different situation, MRS. Brown. It’s good to see “Mrs.”.

    This is not slavery he is an enslaved man, the women are enslaved and the children will be enslaved. These women do not respect themselves otherwise, they would not have been pregnant by him after the two different babiesl.

    To Loppy, octomom is NOT a part of our community, we have to educate/chastise/look out for/help/support our OWN, if she was a part of our community we will have the right to get on her when she brings shame to our community, by her actions(no shame in the kids since they did not asked to be here) but this man( for lack of a better term) should be reigned in , if we don’t talk to our own, who will???

    This male was probably raised by someone who may have done the best they could, but he corrupts the very meaning of manhood.

    He spreads his seed with anger and condemns his offspring to senseless futures as wards of the state. His vile practice of procreation without consequence represents the worst type of sexual predation and disrespect for the humanity of the next generation.

    While many strong women raise children by themselves, we are not bears or cheetahs. Unfortunately, today, many families lack the leadership to advance as a pride of lions, with a strong and dominant male to contribute a male influence.
    women to be left to depend solely uponm their mothers, aunts and sistesters for guidance and help. This male is no man,m, he is nothing but a bane upon the future for all who are unfortunate to linger long within his reach.
    We should not expect

    Stop! Stop! Stop! Stop calling this guy “A Man”! He’s a male, but he is NOT a man. …and no, this opinion does not give females a free pass either. :-(
    Why aren’t people more discerning about whom they choose to mother or father their kids? Doing so would alleviate countless amounts of problems everywhere and for everyone. Try making a pros and cons list about this issue. Which list is longer?
    Many, who have decided to be responsible parents (beyond the materialistic) or to be child -free, have used this VALUABLE and VIABLE choice. Sadly, this choice which is ridiculously criticized, isn’t readily seen/used as a positive option. God’s Life Plan is for a reason!

    There’s so much anger and hatred in most of the comments here. I know it’s “wrong” that he fathered all these children with different women but I refuse to judge him as if I know him, or know what was in his heart or mind. The women too – they took chances they shouldn’t have taken but who knows – perhaps they loved him for that moment? Perhaps he loved them in the only way he knew. Maybe, he was never shown love as a child and seeks it in relative strangers? I don’t know – none of us really know and therefore none of us can really make a fair judgment. What we must learn from this is that all our children must be taught the facts of life and the realities of bringing new life into the world.

    This young man is to blame for these children; however, women have control over having or not having babies.

    If women meet a man that has more than two children that he cannot take care of, she should RUN as fast as possible.

    They both are cheating these babies out of the quality of life they deserve.

    These women should only be allowed to be on welfare until their child becomes 5-years old, by then she needs to have finished a trade and/or college.

    I agree with Reneegede. We have let White people dictate our black lives, from religion to social behavior. It is so bad that black women are so lost. They will walk around trying to look like white women from hair to features. We wonder why they don’t respect us. We still think that closer to whiter looks better. This is why your young people are so confuse, men sleeping with men and women are sleeoing with women. These type of behavior was only really done by beast people like white poeple.

    On an episode of “Tyler Perry’s House of Pain”, Calvin and his ex-girlfriend’s child was in the hospital. I applauded Calvin’s mother, Ella, for positively addressing the fact that randomly having kids has consequences. This view is rarely shown in the media, but it needs to be shown much, much more. So, it may be seen as preaching….and the problem is????

    Takes a real ignorant person to still use that demeaning word” bastard children” I’m more concerned of how neglected these children are, than where my tax dollars are going, rather its to welfare or something else, government still going to take some…I am my brothers keeper, it takes a village. The women are at just as much fault as he is. Amen Mrs Brown!!!

    clearly this young man needs help and so do the children and mothers that are deeply affected by the choices these women and Mr. Hatchett have made. nonetheless, we cannot turn our heads because of the children. They need our help in the black community. Although they have already laid down and made their beds without good decision making it still takes a village to raise a child…perhaps we as a people can start some movement and support for these children to get what they are needing in this world. No matter how we look at it we cannot continue to let our people be exploited and ostracized in the media for white america and the rest of the world…LET’S HELP THEM AND NOT JUST LEAVE A COMMENT!!! real talk, we have to help the lost,weak, and the unruly that is God’s law not man.

    He can’t support his kids with a minimum wage job but I guarantee that minimum wage job was enough to buy some contraception. The 12 of them, yes women included, need their a$$e$ whooped.

    I personally blame the females,just because he has a—–,dont make him a man,we as woman need to really LEARN to understand our TRUE WORTH,when we do we wont allow just anybody in our personal space,i know cause i made the same mastakes many times,i choose pretty boys,with no money,nowhere to stay,frontin like they got something going on,just living off thier looks,decieving foolish woman,most woman,majority of woman already know what they have,its gets even sadder,After the ORGASM,thats if u even have one,he cant even buy u a pepsi,a sanwhich,he smoking up all your cigarrettes,waiting on u to go to the store cause he want u to buy him something,IM OVER IT!thats how it was when i was younger and stupid,what message im putting out is we do,LADIES,we do have a choice,in who we lay with,eat with,live with,especially who we decide to have children with,Anytime u have sex with someone without protection,u risk many things,this guy commented he never ment to have 21 kids,it just happened,u just happen to have unprotected sex21times,and it just happened,my point taken here these woman choose this man and they r getting the benefits of thier choices.
