Boondocks slams BET – the banned clip

I finally found a way to post the clip of Aaron’ McGruder’s Boondocks airing out BET from “Hunger Strike” an episode that seems to have been banned from ever airing.

  1. Ha! I’ve gotta say that I’m kinda surprised…mainly because I feel like Boondocks is a part of the problems facing the Black community (vulgar, sarcastic, pokes fun at Black people by way of [albeit animated] Black people, etc.) and not the solution, but this clip was actually pretty funny…with it being Black History Month and all, I guess it makes you kinda wonder if a Black-owned company will ever be able to “blow up” without selling out…

    …speaking of Black History Month, is it even worth having it anymore???

  2. i’m not a boondocker either…

    the clip wasn’t even all that funny to me. but i did agree with what i perceived to be the critique of bet.

    i think that black owned/created/run companies blow up all the time, on the low and with integrity. i don’t think that bob johnson ever intended to make the network anything progressive or radical for black people…other than himself. i now believe that he saw himself creating a product aimed at an under-targeted consumer base that he happened to identify with. cut and dry like that…

  3. Man, The Boondocks is an awesome show, and people need to learn to have a sense of humor. If you feel insulted by the show, THEN DON’T WATCH IT!!!

  4. thanks cracker…if i wasn’t clear before, i’ll state it now: i DON’T watch boondocks because it’s NOT funny. i’m humored by enough other foolishness that i don’t have to suffer through something that’s unfunny and insulting to me… i doubt if the copper sun does, considering what he said about the show.

    i posted the clip because it was actually interesting and so many of us are interested in the topic it addressed…

    relax, we’re just having conversation…
