The Boondocks

The BoondocksWatched the series premiere episode of the Boondocks tonight.

It wasn't bad. But I would just like to point one thing out. Despite how "edgy" it might be, or daring, or open about racial issues, there's some irony in the air.

As I was watching, I was immediately struck by how... how freaking anime the show looked, it was painful. So I waited for the credits, and sure enough, the show was animated in Korea, by Koreans. BOONDOCKS was animated by people that have probably never met a black person before. And the article I linked to above was written by a white guy.

(And of course, let's not forget that this post was written by someone who's half-asian and half-white, thereby closing the loop.)
