"A dispute among the parents of a mixed-race couple."

I was channel surfing and came upon a show called Home Delivery. The show description in the channel guide reads in part, "A dispute among the parents of a mixed-race couple." Okay, we've been talking about interracial couples lately so I bite. I put the remote down to see what's what. The woman seeking help is a 33 year old white woman who has a baby (looks to be about 6 or 7 months old) with an 18 year old black man. This woman's mom is disgruntled because her daughter's boyfriend is so young and her dad is upset because he is black. Umm, I think they have bigger problems than race differences. (Especially if you do the math with the baby's apparent age, the normal length of human gestation, and the dad's age.) In some communities this woman is old enough to be her boyfriend's mother.

Where do they find people like this? More importantly, why am I still watching this mess? It must be that perverse slowing down to check out the train wreck thing.
