    Huey knows his Revolutionary Icons, for sure. White pop-rockers, not so much. Oh, the irony !!

    Actually, The Boondocks, a daliy syndicated comic strip was created by Aaron McGruder in 1996 for The Diamondback, the student newspaper at the University of Maryland, College Park, and was later printed in the monthly hip-hop magazine, The Source in 1997. It grew in popularity and the comic strip was picked by The Universal Press Syndicate and made its national debut on April 19,1999, way before Barack Obama burst on the national political scene. It was discontinued on March 26, 2006, after McGruder made no statement about retiring or continuing the strip. He is working on the animated version of the strip, which has been on the air since November 6, 2005, and will return for a 4th season in January 2014.

    Thankfully he didn’t mean Baby Huey.

    As Swalb%515 says, this strip ran well before Obama was in the public eye. Read into it what you will, but this character is not the prez.

    Where are Huey and Riley’s parents?

    I don’t believe we ever get an explanation about the parents, though Cesar’s digs about Huey’s “moms” don’t seem to get him too excited.

    I don’t know if it’s ever mentioned in the strip, but in the cartoon it’s suggested that they died.
