Well, the easy answer to getting more black friends, like Stephen Colbert does, is to watch tonight's Season Premiere of THE BOONDOCKS.
For those of you unfamiliar, I did mention The Boondocks in a previous post on METABIGOTRY. And for those of you who were paying attention in class that day, you will get to see a prime example tonight at 11:30pm (EST), on Cartoon Network.
Yes, the Master of Racial Disaster Aaron McGruder is back on the TV with his seminal thought-provoking TV Cartoon show on Adult Swim.

In the next season, we can expect to see some old characters like the fictional rapper Thugnificent
And welcome some new celebrity voices:
For those of you who have the resources (Cartoon Network), I'm going to ask this of you--- a homework assignment.
Here's your assignment:
1) Watch tonight's episode of The Boondocks.
2) Bring a notepad and take notes. (Yes, I mean it! Write down what you liked, what bothered you, what you found disturbing, what you learned, etc.)
3) Come back and comment here on this post. I really want to hear what people think about the way McGruder addresses issues at hand. (Did you like it? Did you hate it? What would you like to see changed?) Because your reactions will directly help with my comedy. Maybe I can change, add, or expand on something that McGruder didn't.
Thanks for your participation. I'll see you back in class tomorrow!
And then you'll be well on your way to winning black friends and influencing people! The Black Dale Carnegie would be proud!
