    This episode's characterization of the "N" word and the pundents had me rolling on the floor. In a way, I wish Ann Colter really was like that but alas. His "Sharpton" character was also funny. While it is a touchy subject I thought it was handled very smartly. The teacher's defense of himself was excellent! This episode really took a much needed critical look at the word and what it does. The only problem I had was Huey is once again under-utilized. Still as the only voice of reason he was dead on and as usual, ignored. The montages of the various voices, including Bill Cosby was also very funny. This was a great episode that delivered an important message. Unfortunately it too will be like Huey, a voice of reason that is ignored. Still, a great episode done in the vein that made the first season so awesome.moreless

    This is exactly what I love in TV shows. The Social Satire is the best part. It points out that when a black person is called the n word its like hiting the lottery (As explained by Grandad). This is a big joke on political correctness and the stupidity of some white people. I love the white teacher explaining the difference between the n word ending in the word er and a. It was making a point that many white people ask. Why do they call eachother it and get so mad when a white person calls them it even in a non hostile way.moreless

    Another classic episode, to say the least. There was a time when I truly believed that civil rights activists were genuinely concerned with righting injustices. However, an article involving a gentleman by the name of Levan Hawkins, Jesse Jackson, and Al Sharpton convinced me otherwise. To make a long story short, Hawkins' inner city Burger Kings fell well short of sales projections and BK was going to take their names off of his stores. Well he went ballistic and called Jackson. However, BK told Jackson that they had already paid Sharpton and told Sharpton to handle it. He did and Hawkins wound up getting 10 mil from BK in order to take their names off of his stores. You can be sure that he broke Sharpton and Jackson off a piece too. This episode showed the hustle involved in the game. A conservative and a so called liberal can run the circuit and both get PAID!!! I'm not mad at either side of the hustle though! This episode just captured the game EXACTLY!!!moreless
  • Riley and Grandad sue Riley's teacher for saying for the N word. Another Instant Boondocks Classic!!

    10
    This episode was informative and worthwhile watching cause of the message that had sending. The episode was based on Riley trying to sue his teacher for the N word in class. the teacher was wrong but brought up valid point on black people saying the N word in everything. He shouldn't have say it even though Riley say first and also he was kinda dumb.



    The battle between Ann Coultier and Rollo Goodlove aka Cee-Lo was hilarious. Ann Coultier was outrageously funny. After all of the battles, the Freemans still lose.



    Rollo Goodlove tried to come up with another plan by fake protesting but Grandad denied cause of Huey's response and later blamed Huey for not going through with the plan and called him a blockhead. A great episode that tributed to Martin Luther King Jr. day.moreless
