Why is the MAN always messin with the brothas?


You know that this is our ish here at Too Old.  We relate and have lived through this show and the trials and tribulations that they got through.

Plus, Jay Electronica kills it as always with Exhibit C in the montage

The Boondocks is an American animated series created by Aaron McGruder for the [adult swim] programming block of Turner Broadcasting‘s Cartoon Network, based upon McGruder’s comic strip of the same name. The Boondocks is a social satire of American culture and race relations (or stereotypes in the world), revolving around the lives of the Freeman family: ten-year-old Huey, his younger brother, eight-year-old Riley, and their grandfather, Robert. The series is produced by Rebel Base and has finished airing its second season on [adult swim]. Season three is currently in production, with all animation pre-production and production work being produced at JM Animation in Seoul, Korea[citation needed].

The Boondocks takes place in the same place and time frame as its comic counterpart. The Freeman family, having recently moved from the South Side of Chicago, Illinois to the peaceful, fictional Chicago suburb of Woodcrest, Illinois (compared to Crestwood) find different ways to cope with this acute change in setting as well as the drastically different suburban cultures and lifestyles to which they are exposed. The perspective offered by this mixture of cultures, lifestyles, and races provides for much of the comedy in this series.

The satire premiered on November 6, 2005. The 15-episode first season ended on March 19, 2006. The second season premiered on October 8, 2007 and was, according to McGruder’s MySpace page, pared to 13 episodes; however, 15 episodes were created. Series creator Aaron McGruder states that a third season is currently under production due to air May 2, 2010.[1]

A leaked trailer reveals that Season Three will be the final season of the series

Why the man always trying to take the tools of the revolution?  All methods and means of protest do not have to be violent.  The intellectual approach is the one that causes the most fear because once you win the hearts and minds of the people, the battle is over.  The humor is so nuanced that it can cause you think about the society at large, as when they lampoon the rapper lifestyle and it’s impact on society.  That is when you can have real change…

This is what change looks like...regardless of the political view

    Unfortunately in large part the Caucasian population of the country would rather forget their misdeeds and the pain of oppression that they inflicted upon others.

    I was intent on doing a piece on Santa Anita race track and the fact that it’d been used as internment camp to imprison naturalized Japanese American citizens during WWII . It’s on the backburner at present but I will get to doing it at some time in the future.
