|Mr. Wuncler:||Magnificent! I admire entrepreneurship in young people.|
|Huey Freeman:||You mean like the 12-year-old girls that work in your sweatshops in Indonesia?|
|Mr. Wuncler:||That's right! Every morning I wake up and put one foot on the ground and the other up the ass of a 12-year-old Indonesian girl. And if this country didn't have unions and child labor laws maybe your generation would understand the value of hard work.|
I hate reading online comments.
I just read some comments posted under a Boondocks episode. The post read: “This show is about everything that’s wrong with black culture, and you are all just proving it.” (In context, this was a part of an ongoing argument between a self-identifying black person and a self-identifying white person. Needless to say, when speaking of online comments, the space quickly turned into another stage for white supremacist ideas—and so “nigger” just started flying all over the place.)
The show isn’t about what’s wrong with black culture or black folks. There’s nothing wrong with black folks. There is something wrong with racism and race relations, and how it plays out in america. That’s what the show is about—it’s satire. It’s about how black americans are perceived and portrayed by both whites and non-whites in america. And if you think that the writers are even beginning to try to create an accurate portrayal of black america, then you’re racist.
