Da Brat And Jesseca “Judy” Dupart are trending as people debate their choice of a white sperm donor.
Jesseca took to her instagram to explain the process and why they made the decisions they did.
According to Vibe Da Brat and her wife, Jesseca “Judy” Dupart, had a rough time finding a suitable sperm donor for her baby.
In a new interview with The Root, the couple explains why they went with a non-Black sperm donor, revealing that there is a shortage of Black donors to choose from.
On Instagram Jesseca said:
So , as a mother of 3 beautiful black kids , and even a black grand baby I want to CLARIFY SHIT to avoid this STORYLINE from continuing that we choose our donor off of looks and that we didn’t want a black donor …… here’s some things you should know
1) WE HAD NO IDEA GOING INTO THIS THAT our chances of a black donor would be slim to none
2) that I was a carrier of so many disorders
3) that our window was SOOOO slim and such high risk cus of age and more
4) with my genetic testing I’m the carrier of 4 disorders , that reduced our chances of a black donor down to 1 person and that 1 person had very limited info / portfolio to judge on ….. including BACKGROUND
5) I’m honestly disappointed more than anything at the storyline , but do understand the lack of knowledge on IVF in our community cus a lot of people don’t even realize all the things when it comes with the journey including LACK OF BLACK DONORS, genetic testing , age where most your eggs are gone , etc
6) the headlines are misleading but also my wife made a distasteful joke and now it’s attached to the headline and making it seem like we choose strictly off of looks and we didn’t at all attempt to find a black donor when in fact not only did we try but we also waited to see if more would pop up over time – but had to stay within the window that we had to choose. Furthermore people think just cus u have money that ANYTHING is possible but no amount of money was Changing the cryobanks inventory
7) our baby created with a HEALTHY baby first mindset once we learned all the things , was a hard decision and of course we didn’t want to add any other stigmas or anything to our child but we had SEVERELY limited options . Thanks to all the people supporting us on our journey and I truely hope this brings Awareness to more black men to donate
She also shared her own carrier screen results:
Twitter has been hardcore with opinions about the couple’s choice.

Y’all can continue to argue but what Da Brat and Judy said was NASTY.
There are many things that impact the state of Black sperm donors – and the world telling us that Black folx look like “Jiminy Cricket” and a “White King” is more attractive is absolutely part of the problem.

The way that people are talking about da brat choosing a white donor after everyone was discussing that there aren’t enough black donors 2 weeks ago is the type of annoying argument I’m getting tired of. Y’all couldn’t have ALL forgotten talking about that for 3 days straight

i also reject the suggestion that da brat should have opted for a private donor because she could afford it. because i doubt it was a money decision and more them not wanting to have to be open to sharing parenting rights with a donor private or public

I know they’re killing Da Brat for the White sperm donor , but I know someone who was recently looking for a donor and they expressed ther are barely any Black donors. It’s a legit problem in the field.

This is literally from Da Brat’s mouth. As a gay woman, nobody needs to tell me about the lack of Black donors. So 300 men and you found a white man most attractive? Ok Jan. pic.twitter.com/QmREPbB2Uc

In the article Da Brat stated their donor is a tall handsome white man and the black man available was ugly girl fucking bye at that point lack of sperm wasn’t the issue anti blackness was anyone concerned with their unborn child’s features is weird

Bullshit. Attractive mixed ppl are often a product of unattractive parents all the time. Both Da Brat and her wife are attractive Black women, so even if the sperm donor was not attractive, the child could have still came out attractive. This is just colorism she anti blackness. https://t.co/Tpxc2Xp87m
