Five Storylines The Boondocks Reboot Should Consider

Trump, Riley’s homophobia and the Obamas are all fair game.

It’s official now.

The Boondocks will be back, and creator Aaron McGruder is going to be the leading creative force behind it. The world needs The Boondocks now more than ever with everything that’s going on in the world. Here are 5 topics that must be addressed.

Putting Trump on Blast

The very first obvious sendup has to be on the presidency of Donald Trump. Trump’s ridiculously inept at his job, but also how it doesn’t matter to the average white American.

Trump’s a white man who plays on racist insecurities to solidify his base of supporters. McGruder needs to look at and examine this paradigm.


The Obamas on Vacation

After years of Republican meddling and finger-pointing, former President Barack Obama goes on an extended vacation with former First Lady Michelle. While America crumbles, the Obamas can be found in Tuscany, Milan, Tokyo, and Bangkok having the time of their lives.

Huey and Riley formulate a plan to change the Constitution so that Obama can run for president again. Hilarity ensues when Uncle Ruckus discovers the plot.


Riley’s Homophobia Revisited

With the ongoing discussions on gender and sexuality in America, Riley is challenged to stop saying his catchphrase “nigga you gay” by Huey as the two travel to the the Village to repair a one of a kind jacket that Grandpa says he wore to see Elton John in 68 after it’s torn while Riley is posing in the mirror as a Future.

While traveling, the duo is recognized by a former gangster uncle who is now an aunt and Riley’s is hard-pressed to not say anything homophobic for fear of getting his ass kicked.


The Ghost of the Purple Prince

The Ghost of Prince returns to haunt Huey Freeman into continuing his lifelong fight to make the color purple the most masculine color in the world. Huey dresses up like a miniature version of Prince the entire episode while performing ridiculous acts of machismo at the behest of the Ghost of Prince.

The Prosecution of R. Kelly

The arrest and prosecution of R. Kelly. Nuff said.
