When The Boondocks first aired, creator Aaron McGruder was quick to remind folks that it wasn’t “the n—a show.” Here’s what he hoped his show would accomplish: “I just wish we would expand the dialogue and evolve past the same conversation that we’ve had over the past 30 years about race in our country.
