Time to Fire Up the Tivo

Aaron McGruder's wonderfully witty comic strip - the Boondocks - is about to have an animated premier. Sunday. Watch it, if you can stay up late. Tivo it if you can't. I am going to record these regularly because you never know how long The Man is going to let these guys get away with telling the truth (in a humorous way).

I still think we need to push the West/McGruder ticket for 2008. I'd vote for these guys if they would run.

Here's a taste of what's in store for you on Sunday:
Less than a minute into the long-awaited premiere of Aaron McGruder's the Boondocks as a TV series on Cartoon Network (as opposed to a mere comic strip in newspapers), 10-year-old Huey -- black and proud and about as fed up with white people as any self-aware kid could be -- has a dream about, well, a garden party.

Full of white people.

He goes to a microphone and makes an announcement: "Jesus was black, Ronald Reagan was the devil and the government is lying about 9/11."

Moments later he's slapped out of his dream by his grandfather, who knows all too well what occupies Huey's mind. "You better not even dream about telling white people the truth."
