Aaron McGruder gets misunderstood

His comments outraged Dionne Robinson, 44, of Richmond.

“I want my $5 back,” she said. “It’s one thing to have an opinion, but he doesn’t have any facts. He needs to go back to college.”

Robinson said that people were enslaved in many parts of the world, not just in America.

Her son, Zane Robinson, 14, of Richmond watches “The Boondocks,” but was disappointed by the show’s creator.

“He’s nothing like his show,” Zane said. “I thought it was kind of boring. His answers were long and they didn’t make any sense.”

That’s so stereotypical as to be tragically funny.  Fourteen year old suggests he is not entertained by the complex criticism of stereotypes and the US present in The Boondocks, but the throwaway one-liners.

I imagine McGruder feeling like his point with the show was completely missed by that particular teen.

Oh, and be sure to read the comments.
