I’m a fan of a show called The Boondocks. It’s a cartoon that tells the tale of two adolescent boys loving with their grandfather in suburbia. The TV show was originally a comic strip that I used to read religiously on a daily basis. But that’s beside the point. The Boondocks is known for pushing the envelop and discussing topics that are pretty taboo. The thing I love about the shown is the way humor is used as a means of conveying a deeper message. The characters are full of depth and the storylines often expound on some current societal issue as it relates to black people. It’s not a show for kids but it’s still really really good.
