One of my favorite movies of all time is the movie “Life” starring Eddie Murphy and Martin Lawrence. The movie, like all great comedy movies, has it’s share of memorable quotes or one liners. The title of this post just happens to be one of my favorites.
If you remember the scene -that’s assuming you live on this planet – you’ll remember that the above title, was in response to the questioning by the prison warden as to the father of his grandchild.
You see, he was white, and well, his once innocent daughter just so happened to have sex with a Black man. Well, considering that everybody in the prison was, well, of the Negro persuasion, it was expected that he seek to find out just who had “soiled” his daughter. Oh yeah, the movie is set way back in the days in a very racist Mississippi. Uh huh, so you could imagine the shock when he found out that his lovely daughter gave birth to a mulatto.
Well, this week, I was reminded of that scene by an email I received from one of my readers. You see, in the video, there was an interview with a young man who stepped forward to say that he belives that he is the father of Nadya Suleman’s octuplets. According to him, they dated at one time and they were friends. He claims that she had approached him to donate sperm to her cause.
I don’t know about you, but just having a woman come to my house and me giving her a donation of my jizz, without me going about it the conventional way seems kinda scary. I could only assume that they must have been really good friends. But hey, I guess that’s what friends are for.
After watching the video, I thought it was cool how he said, that should it be determined that the kids are his – I’m talking all 14 kids – he would step up to the plate to trake care of them, and be in their lives. I can only assume that he meant to assume financial responsibility as well.
Rather noble don’t you think – especially for a Black man, right? Oh yeah, he’s Black, and after a pretty ugly custody battle for his oldest kid, which he lost, he said that there was no way he could or would let this opportunity pass him bye.
I’m sure many people are questioning his motive which is pretty sad in my book. But beyond that, I’d like to know how come the court of public opinion doesn’t deem him to be a quack the likes of Ms. Suleman.
Could it be too much of a bad thing that a Black man steps up to take care of his kids?
That last question…
I’m only asking because I don’t hear the media saying much if anything about this guy as they have this woman…
