This Boondocks Episode Has Many People Upset At The Use Of The Word “Ni**er” With Uncle Ruckus & Jimmy Rebel

- By Bossip Staff

People think that “The Boondocks” went too far with their newest episode where Uncle Ruckus, a “frienemy” to Bossip, hooks up with his idol… Mr. Jimmy Rebel. Jimmy Rebel is a  white racist country singer that Uncle Ruckus teams up with to make more racist music.

The word Ni**er is dropped through the episode so many times… we stopped counting at 50.

    This episode wasn’t hilarious, but it’s always funny to see Ruckus cry 🙂

  • Lioness

    So.

  • champhf

    i never supported this show… i could predicted where it was going. they took this little kids art and comic book and made a mockery of it.

  • TAY

    @Grant

    My sentiments exactly.

    This is “satire”. It was also poking fun at a very real genre of music and a very REAL country musician who sings racist music. Also there were a couple messages about “being yourself” “music bringing folks together” and “black people like to complain.” Lol. It wasn’t exactly funny, but it was very in your face (like Boondocks ALWAYS is) and made a lot of good points. As always.

    Damn the Boondocks lost its awesomeness after the first season!

  • She said it.

    Anyone offended by the word N I G G E R needs to look @ how much tax money is taken out of their checks to support poor blacks who continue to have kids out of wedlock. I bet you’ll say the N word to.

    funny thing is, there are black people LIKE ruckus…i mean look at the ones that chose to EXCLUSIVELY date outside of their race. they have self hate issues just like ruckus.

    I loved the episode. I think McGruder was trying to show the complete absurdity of racism and bigotry.
    Question how many times is the n-word used on your average mainstream rap album? I’m sure it’s hard to keep count on those too..and most of the time it’s not even used to make any type of political commentary like it is on the Boondocks. So get over it.

  • Rrrrroe Ski Love- A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

    It is a fine line between satire and offensiveness. Sometimes white people don’t understand black humor and black people dont understand white humor.

  • Opinionated

    This was hilarious. From their FIRST episode, first season, The Boondocks has pushed the envelope with their excessive use of the “N” word. Why keep complaining? This is a satire! I see it has gone completely over most people’s heads. *Kanye SHRUG*

  • Opinionated

    yeah…what Sara said.😉

  • othello

    *not so much*

  • B3 Fearless

    OMG too funny!

  • Somali Ninga

    The boondocks animation for the second and third season is SKETCHY AS HELL!! DAMN!! SMFH

  • tai

    I found the episode to be extremely funny!

  • B3 Fearless

    Ppl may be uncomfortable by the over use of the N word but I appreciated the fact that the episode was showing the ignorance of racism and that there are racist groups in all races.

    The two major things that stood out to me were:

    The fact that Jimmy Rebel, a racist White singer and Uncle Rukus a racist Black person bonded over racism.

    And the song “Good N-ger” at the end where Rebel basically talked about never conversing with a Black person b4 and learning that the first Black person he actually interacted with didn’t fit the ghetto “n-ger” steretype he made a career of singing about.

    I understand how it made some ppl feel uncomfortable but for me…

    It was funny satire.

    McGruder didn’t disappoint me.

    *stereotypes

  • tania

    i hear that word more than 50 times when i am waiting at the staten island ferry for the bus from high school kids. so when we start being offended by that, then lets take it to tv. the boondocks shove that word in your face because we have layed down and made it mainstream. we have no one to blame but ourselves. its disgusting

  • NON-FAN

    I AM NOT A FAN OF THE BOONDOCKS AT ALL. THE USE OF THE N WORD, THE CHARACTER UNCLE RUKUS, AND THE CONSTANT DEGRADING JOKES UPON BLACKS ARE NOT ENTERTAINING AT ALL. I USE TO READ THE COMIC STRIP IN THE NEWSPAPER WAYYYY BEFORE IT BECAME A SHOW AND IT WAS MUCH MORE PROGRESSIVE. THIS MESS ON CARTOON NETWORK IS DISGRACEFUL. I DONT UNDERSTAND HOW SO MANY BLACKS ENJOY THIS SHOW WHEN IT MAKES OUR PEOPLE LOOK IGNORANT IN A WORLD THAT ALREADY LOOKS DOWN UPON US. THE CAST OF THE SHOW INCLUDING REGINA KINA AND JOHN WITHERSPOON SHOULD CONSIDER DOING MORE ELITE WORK OF IN HOLLYWOOD THAN THIS CRAP. IDC WHAT YOU IGNORANT BLACK PEOPLE THINK…THIS SHOW IS PURE TRASH AND IS A MODERN DAY JIM CROW MINSTREL.

  • DBinDC

    ok, just so i’m clear.. it’s ok for lil wayne (or insert random rapper’s name here) to say n!&&# hundreds of times on his records (that sell and get tons of airplay) but it’s not ok for satire to call us out on it?…
    good to know

  • Candace

    I didn’t like it…they went too far. Thoughout the whole eps I was smh.

  • Mooney 44

    @everyone who was offended.

    How many of your that were so offended listen to hip-hip. Becuase even poeple like Talib abd Mod def use the N word frequently.

    The question is what’s the message. What was Aaron trying to show us. I think he’s so feed up with the way we are as a poeple that he feels as though we need a jolt of truth to snap us out of it.

    Until black poeple understand that, though racism is very real, it is used as a tool to keep us divided in this country and abroad.

    If we talk to each other we might find out that we’re not so different and that we all have a common enemy.

  • AJ

    The sad truth of this episode as well as many others is that the events are based upon real people. Jimmy Rebel is based upon a real racist country singer, Johnny Rebel, and that CD title, N*s don’t die they just smell like it is a real song title, google it.

  • Leelee

    I was disgusted with this episode, not so much with the use of the N word, but to think they actually have people out there that think like Ruckus. Black and ugly as ever, but worship the “white man.” Black people that hate their own people, have issues with shades of black, only put other races on podiums, and turn their noses up at their own people…it’s just sad. This episode spoke the truth, but I think the message was, no matter what color you are something as dumb as racist music brought two idiots together, and the joined a bond, and became friends.
