5. Prisons

 

Huey’s straight-laced Black neighbor Tom was terrified of going to prison and getting anally raped. In one season three episode, “A Date With The Booty Warrior,” Tom even has to escape a number of sex-crazed inmates.

Back in 2010, the episode might have been funny to some, but now more real-life stories are being told about the horrors of incarceration and the failings of the criminal justice system. A fresh lens on how prisoners are actually navigating incarceration could be powerful without losing The Boondocks‘ signature satire.
