  1. Being multiracial myself, I have no problems with “The Boondocks”. I got introduced to it when I went to the Underground Bookstore in Oak Park, a suburb of Sacramento. They had one copy left of the collection “A Right To Be Hostile”. A few weeks later, I found the book at Tower.
    Yes, there was a comic where Huey told Jasmine that she was black and to get over it, but in the same collection, we’re introduced to Caesar, who said that he was half black and half-Jamaican which vindicated Jasmine in front of Huey.

    Yes, he pokes fun at BET, but BET needs to be made fun of. There were two different specials which, in my opinion, would have given BET better props, but they dropped the ball. They could have made “The Hip-Hop Honors” but VH1 did that. They could have done a special about why African-Americans are shut out of country music, the one artform they helped create but Country Music Television did that.

    I am of Mexican, Creek-Seminole, Tahitian, Jamaican and Arabic descent and, recently found out that in our family bloodline there is Asian Indian, Mongolian and Chinese. But yet, everyone tends to judge by the color of my skin.

    People I am not offended by THE BOONDOCKS, in fact, I find it very funny and refreshing and thought-provoking at the same time. If you are upset about THIS comic, you need to get out more.
