White Conservatives Going Insane Over Adult Swim’s ‘Black Jesus’

Jesus is coming back, folks! From Aaron McGruder, creator of The Boondocks, comes Black Jesus–and it sure is pissing white people off! McGruder will not be a part of season four of Boondocks, but fans can enjoy his unique style of humor in his new show–which, of course, is considered an affront to Christianity by some.

The right-wing American Family Association is one entity that is not in any way happy with the show’s premise and is urging advertisers to boycott it.

One Million Moms leads the conservative charge against the show with claims that “Black Jesus” is another attempt to distort the truth about Christianity.” The group says that “The late night programming on the Cartoon Network, known as Adult Swim, plans to air the non-animated show “Black Jesus” portraying Jesus as a “black guy living in the hood.” The show depicts him living in Compton Gardens and makes a mockery of our Lord. The foul language used in the trailer, including using the Lord’s name in vain, is disgusting. In addition, there is violence, gunfire and other inappropriate gestures which completely misrepresent Jesus. This is blasphemy!”

The AFA took up One Million Moms’ fight, urging those on its mailing list to e-mail TBS and Cartoon Network executives the following:

Dear President Levy and President Miller:

I am disappointed that TBS’ Cartoon Network and Adult Swim plans to air “Black Jesus.”



We are told in Hebrews that “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Obviously, “Black Jesus’ makes a mockery of the Christian faith. It would be beneficial to all if TBS and Adult Swim showed a little more respect for Christians who believe the Bible.

I am joining others in asking you to cancel plans to air this show.

I know that American Family Association will keep us posted on which companies underwrite this program with advertising. I am prepared to contact them personally and urge them to pull all commercial support from the Cartoon Network.

Conservatives have swarmed the “Black Jesus” Facebook page to voice their disapproval for the mocha-colored protagonist–and nothing is funnier than watching white people complain about a non-white Jesus..right, Megyn Kelly?

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

I love The Boondocks, and I plan on watching The Black Jesus when it comes on because it looks hilarious in the previews.  I'm even going to let my kids watch it.  How scandalous!

Adult Swim will not give one single fuck about the petition and will air it anyway, because that's just how they are. lol
