I only seen one bit of Comedy Central’s Chocolate News. It seem to be a take on Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson’s views of how Black People present themselves. According to some people, Chocolate News didn’t seem to catch on with the audience. DL Hughley Breaks the News seems to not catch on too well either. Seems like when it’s our turn to “fake the news” or parody mainstream news, we seem to take ourselves a bit too seriously.
Hopefully, Aaron McGruder might changed that. A few hours ago, his Boondocks Bootleg channel showcase The Nergo News Brief. It seem to have hit the right formula because it’s most about issues only the streets would care about. However, this does brings up an interesting question: Why do we hold ourselves to extremely high standards when it comes to anything? Only time will tell. In the meantime, enjoy this video.
