(Creator of Boondocks) Aaron McGruder’s “Black Jesus” hasn’t even aired and already Christians are up in arms, demanding that the show be canceled. The Christian activist network One Million Moms and a flurry of pastors have taken offense at the character.
In the show, Black Jesus lives in Compton, California and goes on a “daily mission to spread love and kindness throughout the neighborhood with the help of his small but loyal group of downtrodden followers.”
David A. Rogers, pastor of the House of Prayer for All Nations Ministries in Chicago, Illinois, calls the show “utter foolishness and disrespectful” and wrote a letter to the Turner Broadcasting system expressing his outrage.
OF COURSE WE WOULD THESE CRAZY ASS WHITE RELIGIOUS POEPLE EXPRESSING DISGUST FOR THE SHOW. Would it be better if Jesus lived in South Dakota and were portrayed as the stringy haired, pale face and blue eyed image that has poisoned the minds of so many?
Aaron McGruder is not one of these who conforms to White America’s definition of a patriotic citizen. Mr. McGruder knows of the lies taught across United States lands in our history classes. He knows the lies told on mainstream TV about foreign affairs and governmental hypocrisy.
To the religious people out there who don’t question much or anything – I hope one day your minds will be open to the truth. There is a God | Higher Being(s) as we cannot be that is all. But, we don’t know all the answers, and that is the beauty of life.
Is returning without the creator Aaron McGruder….
The Boondocks is set to return to Adult Swim with season four on April 21, 2014. This animated series which is based on creator Aaron McGruder’s comic strip will return without any involvement from McGruder. Many are wondering how this will affect the fans in lieu of McGruder being the show’s main creative force.
This is a show created by a young black man who’s creative mind has been able to touch issues within the black community at the hands of the white man.
With the main characters Huey Freeman, Riley Freeman and their grandfather Robert Jebediah Freeman, big brother Huey is always voicing his conscious thoughts for the audience to soak in. Along with his excelled mindset, he is skilled in martial arts and can kick anyone’s butt!
In an age of glamorized ignorance and liking to material things only, Huey sheds a light on the issues which is paralyzing a large portion of our community. This is the complete opposite of his brother Riley who shows rejoice in these exact things Huey critiques.
Riley tries to appear as that hard black male who only wants to be as thuggish as possible, with no remorse or thought to what may be in his future due to his actions. This is all thanks for the popular culture of reality shows and romanticized music filled with foolery which is unfortunately fueled by white male executives who sign artists to feed the masses bull-ish.
Boondocks shows both sides of the black community – Conscious and the misled.
It is not quite clear why McGruder will not be a part of this season… Hopefully it meets all expectations without it’s creator.
