Adult Swim’s ‘Black Jesus’….Do We Love It Or Hate It [Video]
So as we reported some time ago Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder took a step away from the last season of Boondocks to create his new live-action comedy, Black Jesus.
The network describes the show as:
“…[Jesus is] on a daily mission to spread love and kindness throughout the neighborhood with the help of his small but loyal group of downtrodden followers.”
And with McGruder at the helm we were sure to expect some cryptic social-political message. But after seeing the official trailer for the new show, we honestly don’t know what to expect.
Some Christian groups are already petitioning for the show to be canceled after watching its trailer; stating that:
the show “disrespectful” in its portrayal of Jesus and is both “offensive” and “racist.”
Check out the trailer and let us know your thoughts? Black Jesus is set to premier Thursday August 7th at 11pm.
