First off, Putting 'The Boondocks' in the Dock from the Washington Post's ombudsman:
Followers of the comic strip "The Boondocks" were first puzzled and then angry last week. Sometimes this edgy, irreverent and controversial strip, drawn and written by a 29-year-old African American artist, Aaron McGruder, makes some readers mad, and they let the paper know.
But last week it was the many fans of McGruder, and of the clever collection of precocious youngsters he has created, who were mad at The Post when they realized the paper had killed six days of "Boondocks" strips and substituted reruns from 1999.
Post Executive Editor Leonard Downie Jr. comes right to the point: "The Boondocks strips in question commented on the private life of the national security adviser and its relationship to her official duties in ways that violated our standards for taste, fairness and invasion of privacy." As for the lack of an explanation, he says: "We edit all parts of the paper every day, including the comics, and do not usually notify readers about what we are not publishing or why."
[. . .] McGruder's strip is popular and about 250 newspapers publish it. An editor at Universal Press Syndicate, the distributor for "The Boondocks," says that The Post was the only newspaper to kill this series of strips. There were no calls or complaints about it from other papers, he says.
The ombuds, Michael Getler, says at the end that he would'a run the strips if it'd been up to him. You may now speculate wildly about the motives of those who declined to run the strip.
Does Aaron McGruder think that Condoleeza Rice is a lesbian? That's the question I kept pondering as I read this week's "The Boondocks," a comic strip by McGruder that The Washington Post has decided not to publish.
The Post's decision raises that ongoing debate about when not to publish comic strips—most recently several papers suspended a "Doonesbury" stripwhich used the word "masturbate," apparently on the grounds that there might be someone out there who didn't actually know what it meant. In this situation the Post's reasoning appears to hinge on whether Aaron McGruder is implying that Condi Rice is gay.
Amazing how many of us saw that subtext. Possible subtext. Ok, who think Condi is a confirmed bachlorette. And we should stop. Because it's wrong.
To paraphrase Michael Stipe, I just don't think it's anyone's business what Condi does with her dick, unless they're sitting in her lap.
Also, both pieces speculate wildly about how old the main characters are supposed to be, which I think McGruder's mentioned once or twice.
