12-17-09 The Boondocks – History Of Christmas

Posted by Sean on December 17, 2009

Waitaminnit, hold on…

(checks Wikipedia)

Black Winter Day was released in 1995? Then how come the video looks like it was made in the early 1980s?

I have questions, people, and they’ve kept me out of the better schools.

Anyhoo, your neat thing today by me. One of my favorite cartoons is The Boondocks [1]. I love Grandad. I love gangsta-in-training Riley. I love Klansman-stuck-in-a-black-man’s-body Uncle Ruckus. Most of all, I love Huey. He’s exactly the kind of hyper-intelligent, sharp-eyed smart-ass I wish I was when I was a kid.

In keeping with the holiday theme of this blog, here’s Huey trying to explain Christmas to Grandad. (This was right after he was given permission to stage a Christmas pageant, complete with Samurai Jesus) From A Huey Freeman Christmas.

“Actually, Grandad, Christmas is a pagan holiday, and Jesus probably hates you for celebrating.”
