Happy Birthday, Dr. King

15 Jan

This what Boondocks creator, Aaron McGruder imagines MLK would say today. Some have taken issue with the use of the n-word in this clip. What do you think?

    Go Canada! But we are sliding down the same slope. Hey! We could use an MLK right about now.

    But I’m not going to touch n-word with a 10-foot pole.

    I think he’s exactly right. Those of us who act in ignorance and are proud of it, are spitting in the face of Dr. King’s struggle for us. I’d love to see a legitimate answer to the question of “Is this what he got all those ass-whoopings for?” The way some black people behave today is ridiculous. Yes, there are circumstances for the way some of us were raised, but the circumstances were even worse four decades ago.

    and black people weren’t showing their behinds then. What is wrong with us? (Sorry, pressed submit before I was finished typing)
