Aaron McGruder’s ‘Black Jesus’ comes in peace

Aaron McGruder, who has pushed more than a few hot buttons with his stinging “The Boondocks,” is gearing up for his “come to Black Jesus” moment. But as his new live-action series “Black Jesus” premieres Thursday on Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim late-night slate, don’t get it twisted. Just because McGruder’s show revolves around a weed-smoking, tough-talking African American Jesus Christ kicking it in Compton with his “disciplez ‘n the hood” doesn’t mean he’s trying to stir up trouble or take a wicked poke at traditionalists such as Fox News’ Megyn Kelly who maintain that Jesus is white.
