Boondocks: Comedy or Insults
I just read a Wikipedia article: The Boondocks (TV series). (2012, March 6). In Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia. Retrieved 17:32, March 6, 2012, from http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=The_Boondocks_(TV_series)&oldid=480449859
I loved this article because I think this article talked about the things I myself tried to understand about the T.V show “The Boondocks.” This article has explained to me that “The Boondocks,” has caused many controversies with many companies and actors in the entertainment industry. I also think this article has informed me about with many new information such as when the new season of the show is going to air.
One sentence from this article that stands out for me is : “ Numerous outlets predicted the show would encounter controversy prior to its November 2005 debut, due to its casual use of the word "nigga.” I think this is a well meaningful sentence because it shows many critics thought that the show will caused problems because of the word “nigga,” and it did.
I’m pretty sure this is accurate, because “ Apparently, activist Najee Ali is organizing protests against the show because of its use of the n-word.”
Another sentence that I agree with was : “Tyler Perry was reportedly infuriated by his depiction in the third season episode "Pause," first aired in June 2010.” This stood out for me because Tyler Perry is one of the most respect and funniest actors in the entertainment industry and for him to get infuriated means that the show “The Boondocks,” must have really did something inappropriate.
I double checked this fact through http://www.niftychristian.com/?p=10159, which makes me feel pretty sure that it is true.
What I learned from this article is that Boondocks maybe a funny show but it causes conflicts with other entertainers and companies. I also learned that the Boondocks will be airing another season and and there will be a lot of entertainment.
