The Boondocks Comic Strip #1167

1st Panel

Editor’s note: The editorial staff of this paper would like to express regret at this feature’s tasteless assertion yesterday that Britney Spears is currently dating five black men named Muhammad. Since yesterday, we have received hundreds of calls, mostly from black men named Muhammad, asking if this is true. We assure you it is not. We would like Ms. Spears’ legal representation to accept our deepest apologies. Mr. McGruder now understands such reckless and irresponsible humour has absolutely no place in the funny pages.
And now, back to the feature.

2nd Panel
Michael Caesar: So she’s not dating five black men named Muhammad?

Huey Freeman: No. But she is dating Al Sharpton.

Tomorrow: Cancellation!

Huey Freeman: YOU CUT THAT OUT RIGHT NOW!
