Sidenote: I only recently figured out that Woodcrest, the suburb in which The Boondocks takes place, is based on Columbia.
That makes sense; I live about thirty minutes away from Columbia, and it’s well represented by Woodcrest, specifically the fact that it’s bland and eerily Stepford-esque. The Boondocks was a fairly successful comic strip, and the animated series only heightened the franchise’s popularity.
If you are a full-fledged fan like I am, you are feeling the sadness and discontent.
No matter how good the new episodes will be, many of us will question just how good the show truly is.
This was the attraction that drew so much admiration and ire to his brand.Are things really this dire in the black community?Would a beautiful young black woman have to marry an old black man to find love?When I think of Aaron Mc Gruder, I think of the visionary that took it to whomever he saw fit for satire.It could have been Martin Luther King, R-Kelly, or even Tyler Perry.A number of the 250 publications that carry “The Boondocks” have taken exception to the sardonic sedition of Mc Gruder’s characters. They call us “evil.” I just see so many parallels between both sides in this war, and it’s really uncomfortable. Is it really about Osama bin Laden, or are we narrowing this? But I’m sure you’ve seen pictures of Germany after World War II, and that country was flattened. They didn’t have satellites that could listen to a conversation from space or pinpoint and read a newspaper headline from miles in the air. You went to war, carpet-bombed and a whole lot of civilians died. Literally, someone will have to be elected who doesn’t agree with this shit and gives us our rights back. You can’t have a show called “Politically Incorrect,” and have everyone be afraid to be politically incorrect. I mean, I’ve been on the show before back when the strip launched, and I think Bill Maher got a raw deal.
