I'm not gonna badmouth The Boondocks. I'm not a fan, though. I would like an explanation as to what the appeal of this show is.

It's a good mix of low and high brow humor, with satire on current issues, and lots of random moments involving violence or trashy humor.
Though most of the jokes seem racist and just trashy, it's all surprisingly deep. Like when martin luther king jr never died and just went into a coma and got to experience how "too many" black people choose to take advantage of the freedom the last generation of blacks just struggled to earn. That and mocking how his ideas of peace and turning the other cheek would be heavily frowned upon in post 9/11 america and how he'd practically be seen as unamerican.

Not that I'm trying to say you have to watch and enjoy it otherwise you're not smart, but it's really worth the watch once you get all the jokes. Kinda like any other show.

As an avid fan, this is easily the best description of why I like it. However, it's not for everyone. I showed it to someone the other day and they were like "meh".

I've seen every episode and it's in my top five favorite show easily.

I like the show, though never really took the time to watch it before because I didn't get most of it.
Lately, I've seen a few episodes and they're pretty damn good and clever.
Nothing truly is for everyone, but it's best to try something new while expecting the worst.

Trashy humor with a rare intake on black culture.

Yeah, that's the general consensus. I still really don't understand the humor, but hey, whatever people like.

i really enjoy it because its one of the few shows that actually makes black jokes without being overtly racist

it's a bunch of black people living the very stereotypes that are used against them.
There's also an old black guy who thinks he has the opposite of what MJ had which would mean he's white but looks black, is named "Uncle", and hates black people

why don't you try watching it yourself
User avatar #34 to #32 - ultracombo (05/05/2013) [-]
I have. I just don't really find it funny at all, but can respect that others like it.

I've probably seen every episode. (I'm Caucasian) and I never really "liked" it. Never have I thought "Awesome, Boondocks is almost on"...

but there are some pretty ******* funny moments.

Honestly, I always thought the show was ran by white people. Or at least a white person, because sometimes that's all it seems like is "Black people bashing"

There are a few moments where they bash white people, and it's completely hilarious... but sometimes I just have trouble watching it without feeling stereotypical\racist.
