The Boondocks is the television adaption of a comic strip by Aaron McGruder. The Boondocks follows the lives of Huey and Riley, two young African American brothers who have been forced to leave their hometown of Chicago (the reason why is unknown) to live with their grandfather in the predominately white suburb of Woodcrest, Maryland. The show is mostly satirical. It takes aim at social stigmas, stereotypes and archetypes of Black people while commenting on important current issues. It's a truly enlightening show first of all and it's a CACKLE too.
I should also add that each character represents a popular Black stereoptype/archetype.
Huey is the intellectual who is shunned by his friends or family for being smart, having goals and wanting to do better. His younger brother, Riley, is the stereotypical Black kid; a disrespectful, vulgar and ignorant social misfit. Jazmine DuBois, their friend, is the archetypical Tragic Mulatto; A person of mixed African and European heritage who is too Black for White people and too White for Black people. Their neighbor, Uncle Ruckus, is an Uncle Tom, a Black man who damn-near worships White people. Tom DuBois, Jazmine's father, represents the Black man whom other Blacks dislike because he acts "too white". Race is a HUGE theme in the show.
