Where did Yo Mama jokes come from?

If I'm right it was in ghetto communities originally as an insult but eventually turned into a joke by people outside of the ghetto.

Here's what I think and I could be totally wrong but it would not be the first time. A significant amount of black children are raised in single family homes, usually by mom. This makes mom the most significant person in a child's life. A slighting of this person is an ultimate insult to both mom and child. That makes it potent and useful.
