"Boondocks" Language Triggers Protest
The Los Angeles Times reports that several Los Angeles-area black community leaders are organizing a protest over Aaron McGruder’s Boondocks animated series, which debuted on November 6 on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim (free registration required). Their specific grievance is over the repeated and frequent use of “the N-word” and its many variations. Their efforts will focus on a national letter-writing campaign to Cartoon Network and McGruder to eliminate the word from the series.
