Today's WTF Moment: Black Man With 30 Kids Wants a Break (4096 hits)

Originally posted in the Afro Blog at AfroDaddy.com

A few weeks ago we published an article about "The Most Trifling Black Woman in America". Today turnabout is fair play as we spotlight Desmond Hatchett, a man with 30 children by 11 different women.

With all of these illegitimate children to support (on his minimum wage salary) Desmond is now asking for a break on his child support payments.


Desmond Hatchett, a 33 year-old man from Knoxville, Tennessee has fathered 30 children ranging in age from 14 years old to less than a year. He is now asking for a break from the state for his child support payments.

Hatchett already has part of his meager paychecks taken from him and divided amongst the women, with some receiving as little as $1.49 a month.

In 2009 Hatchett appeared before the court and promised he wold not father any more children - and then proceeded to have 9 more in a 3 year span. He has had 2 years where he has fathered 4 children.

Absent Black fathers is a huge problem in the United States, and although this is an extreme case, there are are still too many Black men willing to father children with no regard for how they will support them.

If we are to rise as a people we need to first and foremost take responsibility for the family as this is the key for any people to rise. This brother shames us all.

Marriage is honorable in all, and the bed holy. Adulterers, and fornicators will be judged. We must honor marriage as a holy institution for the purpose of protecting society from broken homes. A nation is as strong as the indivual homes that make up that nation. Faithfulness in marriage is the key to having a happy home. Temptation will come in marriage, but remember every temptation that comes to man is common, and God is faitful who will not allow us to be tempted above what we are able to bear. He provides a way to escape so that we can bear it. Let us set the example and be good fathers, and faithful husbands to one woman.

I think that there should be an exception to the law in this guys case. He's reckless and I think he has a mental health issue, because what man in his "right mind" would father (that many) children knowingly without the sufficient means to take care of them? Shouldn't he be held accountable for his actions especially when its costing others (taxpayers)? This is morally wrong as well as an abomination (if there was such) in my opinion.

He's a disgrace to fatherhood and should receive NOTHING for father's day accept a couple more jobs to go with the one he has!!!

(BlackMediaScoop) My head is really spinning right now. Remember the Tennessee man who impregnated a large portion of Knoxville’s female population–and reportedly fathered 30 children in the process? Well the facts are finally coming in and it appears that the guy was NOT in court as the media has reported and he does NOT have 30 kids. He still has a LOT but not 30 kids.

The story of Desmond Hatchett’s fertility–and his inability to pay child support–came back in the news this week after a Memphis TV station reported that the 33-year-old “was back in court this week” seeking the state’s help with his support payments. The Los Angeles Times noted that Hatchett is “struggling to make ends meet on his minimum-wage job.”

All of this is a HUGE surprise to Hatchett, who has been locked up for the last 33 MONTHS!

Read the link above and it seems there is a lot of misinformation about this man. 24 kids instead of 30 kids is still nothing to be proud of. I apologize to anybody for contributing to any misinformation about this man and Jen Fad good looking out.

@ Brother Darrel,

I also posted a blog on him some time before you and it said he had 21 kids. Apparently there are people out there trying to hype this guy's fertility up for ratings or something. I just thought I'd post the information for clarification purposes not to receive an apology, but thanks for it anyway although its not needed. (smiles)
