How many times have you wondered if Robert Jebediah Freeman ever signed up for that Obamacare or if Uncle Ruckus is an official member of the Tea Party? Is Riley, in his perennial commitment to glossing and flossing, shopping at Barney’s? How would Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder use his cartoon series to confront racially charged incidents that have come to dominate the airwaves. From Richard Sherman’s adrenaline fueled outburst to the death of Trayvon Martin, there have been countless new stories to provide fodder for McGruders show. If only, it would return.
After many conflicting reports, Season 4 of The Boondocks is set to premiere on the Adult Swim network on April 21st at 10:30 PM. It has been close to four years since the release of season 3 in 2010, which was widely believed to be the final season.
As Uncle Ruckus might say… Praise White Jesus!
Since the 2005 debut of the Boondocks cartoon, the show has acquired critical acclaim and a cult like following among fans addicted to the outrageous political satire and blazing social commentary that often puts hip-hop culture under the microscope.
For the same reason, the Boondocks has also been a lightening rod for controversy since its debut as a comic strip in 1999, daring to broach sensitive subjects like the September 11th attacks, police brutality, and the n-word.
In 2006, Reverend Al Sharpton, who I’m pretty sure is the inspiration for Rollo Goodlove, protested season one’s “Return of the King” for Martin Luther King’s character use of the n-word. Two season 3 episodes were pulled, “The Hunger Strike” and “The Uncle Ruckus Reality Show”, for being heavily critical of BET.
America’s polarized climate may be frustrating to endure but on the plus side, it has provided a well of stellar material for McGruder and his team. Here’s looking to an awesome season 4!
