    More race-baiting drivel - talent wasted

    While Boondocks does offer some fun moments and good laughs, in all it is nothing but a race-baiting piece of drivel that enhances the stereotype of blacks and basically can be read as a graphic novel for those in the DNC. Basically everything on the Right is bad, the Left is good. And beware any black person who dares venture towards a more conservative stance, McGruder gets more venomous than Ann Coulter if she could draw! The kicker is the foreword by the great 'patronizer' Michael Moore. Remember, McGruder was 'discovered' by the guy (Jayson Blair?) that made up all those stories in the 'New York Times.' What does that tell you?

    Brilliant

    After the ends of Calvin and Hobbes and The Far Side, Dilbert became my favorite comic strip. I have to say now, that The Boondocks has made Dilbert my second favorite. It's as clever as Dilbert, as silly as The Far Side, as brash as Calvin and Hobbes, and has all the political and topical relevance of Doonesbury(but much funnier). I can't help but root for any comic that can cause such an uproar within the Bill O'Reilly viewership too. What else can you say about a comic strip that teaches you while you laugh? Not only do I find myself buying more newspapers, I find myself reading more current events articles to make sure I get all the jokes as well. Keep it coming Aaron, I can't wait for the television series, just keep creative control in that contract and don't sign with BET!

    Awesome...simply awesome

    Boondocks keeps it real and on point as it weaves political commentary and humor from a African American prospective.
