2. Black women 

 

The Boondocks didn’t have the best record when it came to Black women characters. Although most people on the show are more caricatures than characters, the Black women especially had a bad rep for being conniving, adversarial or simplistic love interests. Rarely were any of them political leaders or just everyday women trying to understand their complicated lives.

Considering a lot of movements, including #BlackLivesMatter, #MeToo and #BlackGirlMagic, have been led by Black women over the years, The Boondocks is going to have to switch up their writing if they want to stay relevant to the cause.
