Pingback: Has The Boondocks Finally Gone Too Far? « The Planet
man you were terrible nice concerning this…this…BULL$#!+ superficial wanna be clever dung sprinkled chunk of animated TRASH.
this “story” was SO offensive it took me 3 attempts to watch it all the way through. yes, i had to take BREAKS while watching this mess.
i’m not a think skinned cat but the way Ruckus was licking that guy’s ball$@(k was just sickening…even while reminding myself that it was for comedy’s sake i found it to be horrendous.
were the writers trying to show how ridiculous self hate is? were they trying to show the ignorance of racists? i dont know because it was so muddled down in epithets any concise moral was lost in the manic repetition of the word jiggaboo.
i hope they come better than this for the rest of the season. that kickball episode may be the 2nd best one i’ve seen, which means i’ve enjoyed a grand total of TWO episodes of boondocks.
man the comic strip was great. they shoulda never gave those ni**** a tv contract.
I will have to see the actual episode before I can truly comment on the specifics. However, I can say that the boondocks going “to far” helps to even out the playing field. We are inundated with politically correct black (Ooops, I mean African American) humor. I think at some point, we have to stop giving the N word so much power. Everyone wants to march and pray every time someone of a different persuasion uses this word. The “forward thinking,” liberal media ends up making a parade about the whole thing, and then real issues like discrimination, jobs, healthcare, and various environmental issues surrounding black people fade into darkness, and the 24 hour news cycle shows re-runs of the alleged crime over and over again. Invariably, Al Sharpton, and Jesse Jackson will be called in to accept the apology for all black people, and racism will proceed as usual. (I think there was an episode of Boondocks that displayed this precisely). Sadly, many whites know this and they purposely say stuff just to watch the craziness ensue. Now, imagine a world where we just didn’t care what they said. Imagine a world where white folks say N*** and black folks say cracker, and then everyone goes on to actually doing stuff that matters? The thing I like best about the character Huey, is that none of the foolishness he witnesses from either his brother, grandfather, or Ruckuss, ever changes his focus.
In my opinion, the N word, REGARDLESS of who is saying it, does not truly warrant the reaction that it gets. And support the Boondocks, they’re hilarious! This is just my opinion, I welcome any other points of view. I will check out the episode on hulu tonight.
