Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder’s new series, Black Jesus, premiered on Adult Swim earlier this week. The show is set in present day Compton and features a Black Jesus who curses, hangs with the homies and, wherever possible, delivers messages of forgiveness, love and compassion for humankind. The show has been as controversial as it has been anticipated. Now, that episode 1 has premiered, what are your thoughts?
