Adult Swim announced that McGruder’s live-action comedy Black Jesus has been greenlit. The show will star Gerald “Slink” Johnson as Black Jesus. The Boondocks regulars Charlie Murphy and John Witherspoon are also part of the cast. The Cleveland Show’s Corey Holcomb has signed on as well.

Production for Black Jesus has already begun in Los Angeles, California. The show is scheduled to debut later this year.

McGruder previously tackled the topic of Jesus being black on The Boondocks episode “A Huey Freeman Christmas.” Watch a clip from “A Huey Freeman Christmas” below.

  • I thought they forgot about Black jesus.Them skits be funny as hell…..

  • Black

    can’t wait to check out the show but JESUS was BLACK so saying “Black JESUS” is redundant.

      Jesus was black, that’s why whenever the image of a black Jesus is presented, it is done in a disparaging way and black people eat it all up like BBQ.

    • Jacob R.

      Jesus was not African. There’s just simply no basis for believing that. I am not black, but I am not “anti-black” for stating the obvious. He was born and lived in a part of the Middle East where there weren’t Africans living there. He spoke Aramaic which is a language that Iraqi Chaldeans speak today. They are far from black.

      • Black

        never said he was African but he was Black,Joseph took him to hide in Egypt at a time when all Egyptians were black & from your statement I see your not educated on the subject. The modern day Iraqi’s are descendant from Arab invaders like the inhabitants of Egypt today. Seek truth or believe whatever helps you sleep at night,

      • Jacob R.

        Ok, so Joseph took him to hide in Egypt, and that makes him black? If Jesus was black then he was probably the only black person who spoke Aramaic. Chaldeans were the first Christians to exist and they are not black, I am having a hard time understanding this flawed logic by black nationalists who try to stake their claim that Jesus was black. I’m excited for season 4 of Boondocks though.

      • The_Good_Life

        It is already proven that Ham is the father of the black races (some try to deny this but its already recorded in ancient history). The land that Canaan (a direct son of Ham) was given is literally, modern Israel. All the ancient maps call that place Canaan and who did the Hebrews have to drive out of the land of milk and honey, the Canaanites.

        Also, the descendants of Shem (father of the Hebrews) were always intermingling with the sons of Ham. This is all over the bible and undeniable. Jesus is a descendant of the Hebrews so you already know. I can go on and on.

        God doesn’t see skin only spirit but humans are evil and have kept this truth from the world for centuries. That why the roman Catholics did not want anyone reading the bible in the dark ages. Those with power don’t want blacks reading at all now. Why? Cause that’s how you create slaves. Hope I didn’t rock you to sleep.

      • STRONGEST LEADER SINCE PAC

        CHRIST SPOKE HEBREW…LIKE I SAID, YOU HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF THE BIBLE….WAS CHRIST A HEBREW OR AN ARAB? CASE CLOSED…

      • Jacob R.

        Christ spoke Aramaic. It’s a common fact. Chaldeans speak Aramaic. Look it up.

      • STRONGEST LEADER SINCE PAC

        I SWEAR NONE OF YOU GUYS EVER PICKED UP A BIBLE!!!!

        ACTS 26:14 (And when we were all fallen to the earth, I heard a voice speaking unto me, and saying in the HEBREW TONGUE, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me? it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.)
        LIKE I SAID, CHRIST WAS A HEBREW, NOT AN ARAB…

      • FunkyMeat

        this guy is jokes just like the bible full of crap.

      • STRONGEST LEADER SINCE PAC

        I SEE YOU HAVE NO KNOWLEDGE OF HISTORY OR THE BIBLE….

        REVELATIONS 1:15 (And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace)

        WHAT PEOPLE ON THIS EARTH HAVE WOOLY HAIR…IF YOU GOOGLE WOOLY HAIR, YOU WILL SEE THAT IT USE TO DESCRIBE THE HAIR OF THE PEOPLE OF AFRICAN DECENT….

        “In many post-Columbian Western societies, adjectives such as “kinky”, “nappy”, “wooly,” or “spiralled” have frequently been used to describe natural afro-textured hair”
        http://en.wikipedia(.)org/wiki/Afro-textured_hair

        AND THAT VERSE SAYS THAT HIS FEET LOOKED LIKE THEY HAD BEEN BURNED IN A FURNACE…IF YOU GOOGLE BURNISH BRASS, ITS A DARK BROWN COMPLEXION….I COULD GO ON AND ON, BUT THE TRUTH IS RIGHT IN FRONT OF YOU….AND TO PROVE THAT THE PEOPLE IN ISRAEL TODAY DON’T BELONG THERE…THEY HAVE THE SECOND HIGHEST RATE OF SKIN CANCER IN THE WORLD….PROVING THAT SKIN TYPE ISN’T CONDUCIVE TO THAT AREA…

        “Israel’s skin cancer rate second highest in the world

        The skin cancer rate in Israel is among the highest in the world, the Israel Cancer Association reported yesterday. At the end of 2000 there were 3,631 skin cancer patients in Israel and around 200 die every year from the disease.”

        AND CHRIST SPOKE HEBREW…

      • Andy

        You’re going to use the bible as evidence? Really?

      • STRONGEST LEADER SINCE PAC

        DO YOU KNOW HOW STUPID YOU SOUND?! DO YOU HAVE THE BONES OF CHRIST? THE EVIDENCE OF HIS EXISTENCE IS THE BIBLE…IF THE BIBLE ISN’T THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR ARGUEMENT, YOU CAN’T EVEN HAVE A CONVERSATION ABOUT CHRIST…SMH

      • Andy

        And where is the evidence for the validity of the bible?

        Also I think you you might either have a problem with your keyboard, or your eye sight, bro. No need to type in all capitals just to get your point across.

      • STRONGEST LEADER SINCE PAC

        THE VALIDITY OF THE BIBLE IS THAT HISTORY AND PROPHECY LINE UP WITH THE SCRIPTURES….THE BIBLE IS THE ONLY BOOK IN THE WORLD THAT TALKS ABOUT THE TRANS-ATLANTIC SLAVE TRADE 2000 YEARS BEFORE IT HAPPENED, AS WELL AS THE NATIVE AMERICANS COMING TO THE AMERICAS….SHOW ME A BOOK IN THE WORLD THAT CAN DO THAT…

        AND THE ALL CAPS IS SO THAT PEOPLE LIKE YOU CAN WAKE UP FROM YOUR SLEEP, BECAUSE EVERYTHING YOU HAVE BEEN TOLD IS A LIE!!!

      • Andy

        aaaand you just went way off the reservation. It’s clear I can’t have a conversation with someone of your level of ignorance.

      • STRONGEST LEADER SINCE PAC

        IT TOOK YOU THAT LONG TO TYPE THAT…THE ONLY LEVEL YOU NEED TO WORRY ABOUT IS GETTING TO THE 12TH GRADE LEVEL…BUT I CAN PROVE EVERYTHING I SAY WITH SCRIPTURES AND HISTORY…CAN YOU DO THAT WITH YOUR CLAIMS IS THE REAL QUESTION?

      • The_Good_Life

        The great thing about the Romans, Greeks, Assyrians, Persians, Egyptians, Babylonians is that they all record their history. The conquest of the Israelites is recorded in their sources as well as the bible. The correlation between these sources have already been proven. You can use google to look up all the roman historians that wrote about Christ whether positive or negative. Hell even Islam acknowledges Christ existence in he Koran.

      • Andy

        I’m defintely not questioning the existence of Jesus, the historical figure. That has been proven by many scholars studying the impact he had 2000 years ago. Jesus the biblical figure on the other hand, and by extension much of the content in the bible? Not so much.

      • The_Good_Life

        Jesus, the historical figure and the biblical figure is one in the same. All other sources just acknowledge his existence. That’s like saying you acknowledge Alexander the great the historical figure but not the Grecian account. Where is the evidence of the Grecian account?

      • Andy

        I should clarify, what I meant by “biblical” figure is him being the “son of god” and all that. Jesus existed and started one of the most popular religions in history, but that’s it. That’s the difference I mean when I say “historical” and “biblical”

      • The_Good_Life

        Ok got you! Peace..

      • George Mason

        Was any of the ceasers real?

      • STRONGEST LEADER SINCE PAC

        YES…THERE IS HISTORY WRITTEN ON CEASER…

      • George Mason

        NOT correct..

    • George Mason

      Jesus was not black or white..when on earth he was hebrew…

  • grabo2003

    finally season 4 of boondocks

  • Reblogged this on HUEY mix wit RILEY.

  • STRONGEST LEADER SINCE PAC

    WHY BLACK JESUS HAVE TO BE A COMEDY…FROM “GOOD TIMES” TO “SANFORD AND SON”, THEY ALWAYS BRING THIS TOPIC UP LIKE ITS SUPPOSED TO BE FUNNY….THE TRUTH SHOULD BE TAKEN MORE SERIOUSLY…

    • Jacob R.

      What truth? How is Jesus black? If so, he would have been the only black person in the area where he lived. It’s petty to use black nationalism to stake claim to Jesus. He is everybody’s, but his skin was not black and he was not African. These are just facts.

      • Black

        to say he would’ve been the only person of color in that region shows how lost you are. The European jews that now live in Israel aren’t the Hebrews from the Bible,for your information the word “Egypt” means Black idiot. Means people from the Black land. I would point out books for you to read but that might be over your head so google it. Peace

      • Troll_E_G

        Kemet means black land my brother….Egypt is a European word just like Africa is

      • Jacob R.

        I’m not Israeli or Jewish but it’s very evident you have little to offer when you choose to throw insults around like an ignorant fool. In the part of the Middle East where Jesus is said to be born, there are very little African black people there at all. Arabs are not black, Hebrews are not black, they may be of color, but they are not black.

    Slink Johnson as Black Jesus is hilarious. 1 of my favorite comedians from back when he left rapping and started doing comedy.

    A nigga been waiting on that new Boondocks for ever and a damn day but im interested to see what dude got in store with this whole Black Jesus project

  • Black

    See how these trolls come after you when you speak truth. I can easily refute every misinformed claim he made. Last thing I’ll say is “Wooly hair,eyes fiery red,skin that shone like burnt bronze.” Moses sister was given leprosy which turned her skin white & no matter how many false paintings were done in Italy or how many movies made with inaccurate casting the TRUTH will always be the TRUTH!

  • Troll_E_G

    Africans are not in the bible but life started in Africa…first hue man was a black woman.. .science has confessed to this so arguing over european ideology gets us nowhere….life started with black people not john the Baptist n Noah ….different colors n or races cannot come from white people so please use logic my brothers n sisters….its one of the best gifts the creator has given us

  • Black Jay

    How the hell can a cartoon get grown ass men on this site to fight over the color of Jesus? Damn! It’s getting kinda silly over here…..

  • drac215

    “If” you care about color or culture, or anything about creation “shut up!!!”!!! Coming from a straight up racist before I found out about “Christ”!!! All you scientist conspiracy theory believers, only “God” knows!!! We only tapped the surface of whatever you want to talk about as humans on earth. The word is with God and Jesus and he left the Holyspirit to walk with us all, so take advantage of it!!! If you dont know about the word John3:16 is all you need to know. This show is comedy so take it as that, if it messes with your faith, make sure youre a true believer!!! peace and God bless us all

  • king

    I hope he doesn’t ni $$ er fye jesus with stereotypes

  • lethal5

    That clip was like an animated version of Ras Kass “Nature of the Threat”.

  • Roddy

    Who cares what color Jesus was, he probably wasn’t a real person anyway. He is just a character in Christian mythology.
