The Boondocks: "The 'S' Word"

Whattup, spearchuckers? The great humor of all comes in the paradox that older people who, like Robert Freeman prostrate before news cameras, describe the "n"-word in any variation as hurtful. Yet, no one uses the term more than an old black person. My grandma nana'nem from Virginia. She could easily trace her roots a couple of generations back to the plantation. She grew up in the 1930s as a sharecropper before the hooch train dropped her off in Harlem. She also leads our family in NPS (Niggas Per Sentence) average. She does so by a wide margin. I'm creeping towards it, but I'm like Jason Kidd to her Oscar Robertson in terms of the triple doubles. In other words, I didn't learn that shit from hoodrats in the street or children at school. I learned it from grandma nana. Remembering the way she used to call pop-pop (or anyone else) a "nigga" in her saucy, hostile southern drawl still lights up my life. No one could do it quite like she did. She was my nigga, mane. As far as hilarious particulars go, how funny was the teacher running down the hip-hop "nigga" discography? As he ran them off I felt like I was in a scavenger hunt. I was one "nigga" short of Bingo! I had "Real Nigga Quotes" in the "G" column. As Ruckus explained, the racial slurs are in dire need of a fresh rotation. Regardless of what you may think of the "n"-word, it doesn't incur the same ire it once did. "Porch monkey" will always be my all-time favorite. The shit is hilarious. If a white person ever called me that, I'd laugh my ass of before I broke his nose. A special shoutout to Cee-Lo Green as the classic charlatan. Fuck Al Sharpton. Fuck Jesse. Fuck Farrakhan. Fuck The Negro Channel. Fuck Ann Coulter, Queen of the Desert... even if she fucks with these crab cakes. Who the fuck did her fucking voice? And oh, yeah... fuck. That's the "f"-word, spearchuckers. Does anyone remember this scenario the episode derives from? The teacher had the signs and everything. It was hilarious. Any thoughts?

I didn't know this was based on a true story until I had watched the show already. And the newscast was funnier because of it.

"fuck farrkhan".....Bad Mexico, bad! I understand the frustration with Black leadership, but he's one who actually does meaningful work. In my opinion, anyway. I know youre a hater by trade so I can't bust your balls too much. I for one, am about ready to say "FUCK THE BOONDOCKS". Im pissed that the episode "Hunger Strike", dealing with the ignorance of BET, has yet to air. DOn't get me wrong, I love the show, but this season has been lacking in depth compared to season 1. The episode that could redeem this season and bring The Boondocks back to its roots (good ol' BET hate) has been snatched. Mr. Mcgruder hasn't said jack about it! Now they have boundaries all of a sudden?? Its Adult Swim for crying out loud.....FUCK VIACOM!

This was one of the better epsiodes. Even though Cee-Lo is widely known, I still feel this cat's talents are not appreciated. The casting of him as the Rev. Rollo was classic.

Ron you're a fool for the NPS stat. You need to add that to the vocab.

Ron Mexico said...

cb-dub... consider it added.

sahara, all of the men on the list have done great things. i only add farrakhan to the F-list because i believe he polished the pistol that fired the fatal shot for brother malcolm.

that, and homie is an unabashed anti-semite.

This shit was clownin. Although one Mr. Peto left off the list and what I think the title of the episode should've been..."Niggaz Done Started Something". Ruckus was absolutely right though, "Nigga" does roll off the tongue like sweat off of Patrick Ewing.

Sahara said...

Aww Ron, I thought you knew better. All I can say is, in the words of our favorite reality show coon, "Don't Believe The Hype".....

Edgar That Mexican Guy said...

Hi, My name is Edgar and I'm a hate-a-holic.
Sorry Sahara, Farrakhan was involved in Malcolm's death.
Aaron McGruder hates black people.
And the government is still lieing about 911.
Sadly I missed this episode because my ol lady decided to Tivo Rachael Ray while my Boondocks was supposed to record.

Ron Mexico said...

+2 points for "niggas done started somethin'"

you don't really wanna come try the one guy who stay dumb high from blunt lye...

and yes... part of the reason for the long-term survival of the n-word is definitely the way it rolls off of the tongue.
