If youâ€™ve ever watched Aaron McGruderâ€™s animated series, The Boondocks, then youâ€™re familiar with the fact that Uncle Ruckusâ€”a freed personality that exists post-slavery but lives with a slave mentalityâ€”thinks all black people are worthless when it comes to work ethic. But Uncle Ruckusâ€™ character is a spoof on reality.
Black people have taken over Congress (John Lewis), Fortune 500 companies (Kenneth I. Chenault, American Express) and science (Neil deGrasse Tyson). And who can forget the White House? President Obama is living proof that all black people are not lazy.
