The Garden Party

The Garden Party - S01E01Pre-Show: Greetings Need to see where we are on social media and such?  Come find us!  https://www.theboondockspod.com/links Shout out to Dennis Gugin for working on the main characters (Grandad, Huey, and Riley) as well as US as custom Pop! Vinyl figures!  Dennis has made some great characters over the years, so you should check him out on Facebook at https://facebook.com/dgPopCustoms. Episode: Synopsis:  The Freeman family get invited to a garden party in the new neighborhood they've moved in to.So many people, including the POTUS don't believe that black people belong in these neighborhoods. Grandad, Huey, and Riley Grandad used the boys' inheritance to buy the house. Comparison to "Get Out!" Huey's dream (telling white people "the truth". Microaggressions"You're so articulate!" "You're so smart!" "You speak so well!", "Free-man" Clip: Grandad chastising Huey, but Huey shows him that the attendees just love him.Being seen as white people's entertainment. Black people must prove that they are willing to "toe the line" in order to be allowed in. Ed's grandson (Ed III) white, crass, rude...was also applauded.  He's RICH! Saying the N-word. Ed III and Riley - concern.... Lynxi grew up in the hood. Fetishizing hood culture. What "looking cool" was like when we were growing up. Uncle Ruckus...and his song. Lynxi wanted to be a nun. Internalized racism. Being made to feel like you should act like white people want you to act. Learn how to lie to white people. "Compliance" at work.  Being trained to "behave". Elders teaching younger folks to not "fight it". Getting a "Black Education" when you're a Black kid. "Old school" - What's that mean? White Oprah (Stupid) White People Questions: From Twitter:  “How is not seeing race racist?  Please explain because I thought racism is treating people a certain way based on the color of their skin, and the antithesis of that is treating everyone equally.”If you don't see color, you're absolving yourself of the responsibility to stand up for someone who's being treated differently because the color of their skin.

Trivia: Grandad said that he “went and spent all your inheritance to buy this house”. We can assume that Huey and Riley’s parents are dead and had good life insurance and that Grandad is the conservator of the inheritance for the boys. Ed Wuncler stated that “In 30 years, that boy’s going to become the President of the United States and he’ll still be an idiot.” in reference to Ed III.  That’s because Ed III is based off of George W. Bush. The infomercial/video that Grandad was working out to was for Tae Bo by Billy Blanks.  Billy Blanks was a somewhat well known martial artist actor back in the late 80s through the 90s. During the 90s, Blanks created a martial arts/dance-based set of exercise videos that were marketed by infomercial throughout the decade and became quite popular.

The Trial of Robert Kelly

The Trial of Robert Kelly

2020-09-1901:15:58

The Trial of Robert Kelly - S01/E02*Note:  We had a few audio issues with the recordings on this episode.  I tried my best to get that all sorted and levelled.  Future episodes should be cleaner.  Thanks for understanding. - Dean (the producer)Pre-Show: Greetings Lynxi's recording live from the closet.  And singing! Older men "dating" minors. Jumping the gun New show logo Episode: Synopsis: IMDB Synopsis:  Huey disagrees with Riley - and apparently most Blacks - regarding the R. Kelly case. Our Synopsis:  The first time R. Kelly faced trial and how the people of Woodcrest, with their varied points of view, reacted to what was happening. How the show pulls real-life events. How creepy R. Kelly was. Pretending to be R. Kelly's personal assistant. How ignored the R. Kelly story was by non-melanated people. Entertainers who've gotten away with it. Roman Polanski Harvey Weinstein Bill Cosby Woody Allen How the media do not even try to understand Black (pop)culture. Entertainment ignorance Stereotyping How the media is quick to push salacious information. Access to information has not necessarily made people any smarter. There was actually a tape.  The information surfaced about it before he was about to perform at the opening ceremonies of the 2002 Olympics. Trapped in the Closet. Aaron McGruder is a psychic. Bobby and Whitney, Kobe, Tiger Woods.... Getting into arguments about Kobe. Black community not wanting to give another one of "theirs" over the system. Systemic racism. Two different systems of justice. Separating the actor's acting vs. their personal life. Being Black in society and social media. Uppity:  Intelligence revered vs. ignored Other Black "Ruckus" people. Choosing to assimilate to white society. All of these systems were built off of white supremacy. (Stupid) White People Questions: “What do you mean there’s no such thing as “reverse racism”?  I struggle with it all the time!” Racism is a system that was invented by the powerful (in America, white people).  Black folks have no way to reverse that system. The extinction of "Karen". White people don't understand racism as a power structure. White privilege The idea of reverse racism only seems to crop up in places where white supremacy has been challenged/diminished.

Granddad's Fight - S01/E04Pre-Show: Greetings Shout-outs: Dennis Gugin - Got Tom done and Riley’s looking good! Working on Huey now too! Episode: Synopsis: IMDB Synopsis:  After getting beaten up by the mean and blind Col. Stinkmeaner, a humiliated Granddad wants a rematch. Our Synopsis:  We've all been here. Trump's been having n---ga moments.  Confirmation bias Hostile Twitter Valid to feel hostile Joe growth Working to not fit stereotypes Is it a "Black man" thing or a "Man" thing? Obama "behaved" Own your emotions The Real World Riley celebrates the worst of Black culture where Huey wants them to be better. Call people out on their bullshit Big Mouth (Stupid) White People Questions: This is actually from Bree Newsome Bass’ Twitter: “How can someone be racist if they parented Black or mixed race children?” Even Black people can be racist against Black people.  There are biases that people have and things aren't done on purpose. Getting offended at "that's racist" is not helpful. White folks have racial biases that they don't even realize.  You'll say things that you don't realize that are racist.  You'll keep fucking up, but you have to LEARN, stop old behaviors, and grow. It's not enough to be "not racist", you have to be "anti racist". There is SO much information that can help parents these days to learn.

You will be.” This is a reference to Yoda responding to the same thing to Luke Skywalker in Empire Strikes Back Huey admonishes Granddad’s training by saying “What was that? An exhibition? You need emotional content. Now, try again”.  This is a line said by Bruce Lee to one of his students in Enter the Dragon  Show Music: Intro:  #Makeachange by K.I.R.K. is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License.

Bush / Gin Rummy = Donald Rumsfeld The huge cock of the “Health Inspector” (Stupid) White People Questions: From Twitter: “Am I intruding or am I supporting a black owned business if I go to the hair salons in my neighborhood?”It depends…  Is your intention to look like a Black person?  For the most part it’s great.  Just like anywhere else, be respectful.  Be aware of your privilege.  In the end, you may learn something new about yourself and your hair.

Jackson’s) famous “Say what again!” speech during the interrogation of Brett (played by Frank Whaley) in the movie Pulp Fiction (1994). Gin Rummy telling the officer that he wasn’t going to “die…in vain” or be “mortally wounded…in vain” was a reference to Monty Python’s The Holy Grail between Lancelot and Concord.

There are references to a couple of "Eddie Murphy"'s comedy bits.The first one is when Riley is watching the news there is a guy Huey refers to as "Black Eye-Witness Man". This was a bit on Eddie Murphy's comedy CD "Eddie Murphy's Greatest Comedy Hits" where he talks about a guy that witnessed a man getting hit by a car. They both start the same way.And the second one is when Riley is attempting to throw himself down the stairs so that Granddad can take him to the hospital.

Acclimating to change Everyone have a spot in the revolution to enact change A Dream Deferred is a reference to Langston Hughes White People Question:Regularly heard: “Why are Black folks looting and burning things when Martin Luther King practiced non-violence?” Please listen to what Kimberly Jones said. MLK, at the end of his life, had started to embrace Black nationalism.  He also wasn't opposed to riots. "A riot is the language of the unheard." When Black people have been sad for so long, they get angry.  They have a right to be hostile. People > Property Barely anyone ridicules when people riot of their team winning a championship.

The poem that Dr. King recites is actually an excerpt from a song titled "Niggas" by Asheru. Asheru performs the series' theme song. Reverend Al Sharpton publicly criticized Aaron McGruder and Adult Swim for this episode. Sharpton felt that depicting Martin Luther King using the word "nigga" would "desecrate black historic figures". He demanded a public apology and threatened to stage a protest against Time Warner, Adult Swim's parent company. McGruder spoofed Sharpton's criticism in subsequent episodes and in the comic strip the show is based on. This episode aired on Martin Luther King's birthday (January 15th). Dr. King would have been 77 years old. Aaron McGruder won a Peabody Award (an award for excellent storytelling) for this episode!

When Huey and Riley are fighting and Huey gets his sword blade on Riley’s neck, we see Huey smile. This is the first time we see him smile. Bushido Jones is based on Jim Kelly from Kung Fu Movies like Enter the Dragon and Black Belt Jones.

You are not the representative for all white people. If the intent is pure/sincere… Don’t center yourself in an apology What are you willing to do?

When Granddad is talking about The Teacher and says “I heard he was a Gulf War” vet, that is a reference to Bob Ross’ (who The Teacher is based on) service during Vietnam (which is a little known fact). The reference that Uncle Ruckus makes to the “comics with the talking penguin” is a reference to “Bloom County” and the featured penguin character, “Opus” by Berkeley Breathed, whom Aaron McGruder is a big fan of. The final line that Granddad says “This ain’t Beat Street” is a reference to the movie Beat Street (1984), an American drama dance film featuring New York City hip hop culture of the early 80s, breakdancing, DJing, and graffiti. Riley’s painting of a “fallen soldier” is of Ol’ Dirty Bastard. Show Music: Intro:  #Makeachange by K.I.R.K. is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License.

Wingmen - S01/E13  Lynxi WelcomeEpisode synopsis HBOMax Synopsis: When Granddad’s oldest friend dies, the Freemans go back and both Granddad and Huey have to learn to put the past behind them.

Does this mean they’ve won?” BLM has disappeared from a lot of media view because of everything else that’s going on. They are still out there working. BLM folks went and helped get folks out to vote.

Post Show Info: Next week: The Block Is Hot Need to see where we are on social media and such?  Come find us!  https://www.theboondockspod.com/links Trivia: The name of Granddad's plane in World War II was "Dorothy," the same name as his car. A piece of the plane can be seen in Granddad's den, along with other memorabilia. This is part of the running gag from both the strip and show where Granddad is in love with Dorothy Dandridge. Moe and Granddad both have women painted on their Mustangs. WW2 era Tuskegee Airmen pilots were not allowed to paint on their planes as they were not given the same rights of a white man. Dewey questions Huey with "Where are your sandals? Where are your capris?" This refers to the 2003 track "The Yo Yo" by Little Brother where Phonte rhymes, "It's time to bring the emcees on/I'm sick of n***as lookin bitch trying to read poems/then try to battle me with sandals and capris on?/Come on dog...".

Lynxi's Synopsis:  Aaron McGruder is a psychic! Pre Show: Congrats on surviving 2020! Tiara's father passing The insurrection/coup Eugene Goodman - Black Excellence Hero! Is the GOP a cult? Show: Jazmine flips on Huey when confronted with the truth. The show doesn't say when it is, but all this is the same thing that happens today. Ruckus, the heroic, white supremacist cop. Horrible Histories - Stupid Deaths White privilege Homage to "Do The Right Thing"  White People Question: Heard around the internet for the last few days: “How is what happened at the Capitol any different than what happened during BLM protests?” It is NOT the position of BLM for looting/setting fires. BLM protestors NEVER were allowed to get that close to anything at the Capitol or White House.

The Passion of Reverend Ruckus - S01/E15  Lynxi WelcomeEpisode synopsis HBOMax Synopsis:  While Ruckus spreads the word of White Jesus to get into White Heaven, Hey tries desperately to save his friend from death row. Pre Show: Dennis Gugin has completed Huey, Riley, Granddad, Tom, Jazmine, and Uncle Ruckus custom Funko Pop Vinyl figures and they look AMAZING! - https://facebook.com/DGPopCustoms 1 week into the Biden regime - what's happened so far... Proud Boys are terrorists...in CANADA! Less “need” to check the news ALL THE TIME! Jamie Harrison as head of DNC Only 5 GOP senators have shown their interest in impeachment. California EDD fraud Biden is better than the abusive relationship of Trump. We want MORE than just "better" than Trump. Trump doesn't deserve Secret Service protection or anything else a former president would get. Hard-right folks being put on no-fly lists. Watching the insurrectionists getting arrested We cannot allow this to happen again. White folks ignoring their white privilege. Be accountable! Show: White heaven with Ronald Reagan Ruckus' "ideal self" still had the fake eye. Was Trump's agenda really any different than Reagan? Religion is divisive. Trump's spiritual adviser praying to "African Angels". Huey's fight for Shabazz Black folks who are in prison even though there's so much evidence proving otherwise Religion is not Spirituality and it's as equally valid. Huey's willingness to die for his cause. God got involved! Tom's light-skinned privilege Riley was comic relief this episode Riley sees God and Santa as the same  White People Question:  From a Buzzfeed video: “Are you growing your natural hair out as a political statement?” Oh yes.  Everything that Black people do is a political statement </sarcasm> We're realizing that we are beautiful as we are don't have to assimilate to white standards of beauty.

Post Show Info: There were 8 million new folks getting armed last year.  2 million of them were Black. The John Brown Gun Club Every Black household should have five different types of firearms. Next week: Season 1 Recap Show Need to see where we are on social media and such?  Come find us!  https://www.theboondockspod.com/links Trivia: The title of the episode is a parody of Mel Gibson's film The Passion of the Christ. Shabazz is a depiction of Mumia Abu-Jamal, a political activist and journalist who was convicted of murder and sentenced to death in 1982 for the 1981 murder of Philadelphia police officer Daniel Faulkner. The Armstrong Elder character is an amalgamation of two well-known Black conservatives; Armstrong Williams, who is an American political commentator, entrepreneur, author, talk show host, and adviser to Ben Carson, and Larry Elder, an American talk radio host, author, attorney, and documentary filmmaker. During Huey's description of Operation Black Steel, he mentions how Granddad would remain in the car and watch Friday. This is in reference to John Witherspoon's (Granddad's voice actor) role as Mr. Willie Jones in the movie "Friday". The governor being gay is a reference to former New Jersey Governor James McGreevey, who resigned after it was revealed he had an extramarital homosexual affair.Show Music: Intro:  #Makeachange by K.I.R.K. is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 License.
