DUCK DYNASTY STARS AND ADMITTED RACIST – ADOPT BLACK BABY BOY

Published January 23, 2016 by sheezacoldpiece

  
These days the trend by whites of adopting black children is almost as popular as having a lap dog.  In this case here,  having a racist family background should’ve sent up red flags to to adoption agency, but clearly the overall welfare of this child wasn’t important to them.  

Jep Robertson and his wife, Jessica, stars of the wildly successful Duck Dynasty franchise, recently adopted an African-American baby, Jules Augustus Robertson, or baby Gus. 

Baby Gus made his debut on Jep and Jessica: Growing the Dynasty on A&E this Wednesday. 
People on Social media predictably weighed in this week, with the more optimistic among us noting that it’s sweet; the more cynical say that the “Duckmans” newest addition is at best a prop to plug their new spinoff. Or, at worst, “God help this kid.”

  
Jess and Jep Robertson, who have four biological children ranging in age from 7 to 13, revealed to Us Weekly that Jessica, 35, is unable to bear any more children due to “some health risks.”
They also told the entertainment outlet that the adoption process has been an “emotional rollercoaster” lasting three or four years, and two adoptions fell through before they were able to take baby Gus home.  
“We went to the adoption agency and we said, ‘We don’t care what race, what gender,’” said Jep, 37, to Us Weekly. ‘We just want to have a baby, so whatever happens, happens.’ So we got us a little Gus.’”

All we can do is hope and pray the child is well taken care of and not abused in anyway.  The biggest challenge with this type of upbringing is never truly having a full understanding of your background and roots.  This helpless child has the odds stacked against him when it comes to ever really discovering his true identity, and having the right people around to help him out. Smh. Check out the racist and anti gay rant by a family member below.

Today, some actors are very excited their pilot was picked up. Fox has added another new drama to its slate for next season, picking up the series Empire, its drama pilot from The Butler‘s Lee Daniels and Danny Strong and Imagine’s Brian Grazer. Written by Daniels and Strong and directed by Daniels, Empire is described as a unique family drama set in the world of a hip-hop empire. It centers on Lucious Lyon (Terrence Howard), a charismatic, savvy music superstar who is about to take his company, Empire Entertainmedanielshowardnt, public. Raised on the streets, he has never backed away from a fight and will resort to any measures, fair or foul, to defend his beloved Empire. Taraji Henson plays Cookie Lyon, Lucious’ ex-wife and former business partner. Besides its narrative, Empire also has been getting high marks for its music, supervised by top producer Timbaland. 20th Century Fox TV and grazerstudio-based Imagine TV are producing, with Strong, Daniels, Grazer and Francie Calfo executive producing. For Imagine, the pickup comes as the company’s 24: Live Another Day just premiered to solid ratings.

This sounds like something I will check out. I already like the talent line up with Taraji and Terrence Howard, so it should be interesting.
