Episode one of the third and apparently final season of The Boondocks aired Sunday May 2nd 2010.
Entitled: It’s a Black President, Huey Freeman.
This episode takes us back to the Obama election campaign through to inauguration – then back to reality and to the present.
In usual Boondocks fashion this is done in a smart and at the same time funny way,
Cleverly plays on the American racial stereotypes through the eyes of the main Freeman family and it’s supporting cast.
For those of you who are not familiar with The Boondocks it is an American cartoon that airs on Adult Swim. The Boondocks is based on an inner-city African American family that have moved out to the “white” suburbs.
The family is made up of three members
Grandpa Freeman: A survivor from the civil rights movement though enjoys trying to mix with white high society.
Riley Freeman: An 8 year old hyper stereotypical young rapper wannabe
Huey Freeman: A pessimistic 10 year old Black Rights Activist.
Uncle Ruckus: A Black neighbour who Hates Black people and claims he has the opposite of what michael jackson has (Revitiligo).
