'The Boondocks' creature Aaron McGruder explains his departure from the series

When it was announced that Adult Swim hit "The Boondocks" would be returning for a fourth and final season, the part of the press release that stuck out was how series creator Aaron McGruber wouldn't be back. At the time, Sony Pictures Television explained the new season "was produced without the involvement of Aaron McGruder, when a mutually agreeable production schedule could not be determined."While McGruber was initially silent on the issue, he took to the Facebook page of his next Adult Swim show, "Black Jesus" to address his departure. In an open letter on the page, he writes about the responsibility he had to make sure the show offended viewers, but that it was for "the right reasons."

The Boondocks 3.03 "The Red Ball" Review Season 3, Episode 3

Before my fingers could hit the keys of my keyboard, I got texts and IMs about how last night's "The Boondocks" pailed in comparison to the first two hard hitting outings from the past two weeks. I had to replay the episode due to me laughing hysterically at the bloodiest game of kickball I have ever seen played and missing any hidden message McGruder was probably throwing at us this week.

These secondary thought impulses, along with my original notion of the episode, combined to form three different ways I felt that I could come at "The Red Ball." To Read More Click Here .
