Nightmare Fuel: The Boondocks
The whole episode of The Boondocks "Smokin With Cigarettes." Normally, this show is a political satire, a comedy and an action/slice of life show. THIS episode is about the exploits of a sociopathic child named Lamilton, who mercilessly hurts and endangers people because he thinks it's fun. "I like doin bad things," he says. His eyes are dead, totally devoid of emotion. His childhood was traumatic and abusive, but he is a completely unsympathetic character. He claims that he wouldn't care if he kills the people he hurts- he means it. Even Riley the jerkass thinks he's a monster. Lamilton causes countless car crashes, punches people, tries to rob an old woman, actually shoots that old woman's dog to death, and tries to kill Riley!
You want to really have a reason to stay up all night? There are real kids JUST LIKE LAMILTON. Theyre just limited in the damage they can cause because they dont live in a cartoon universe.
The entire scene where he comes home to Sarah in Tom's body, and you don't see his face. And Sarah doesn't recognize the obvious difference in his face.
Uncle Ruckus, a black man who has been broken down to such an extent that his entire existance has become a hideous mockery of the old black "Uncle Tom" stereotypes, due to his cruel, abusive father traumatizing him so badly that he hates his own race to such an extent. This gets even worse in one episode where he founds an entire church based on getting black people to hate themselves. The man is so incredibly mentally broken that when he's told via DNA testing that he is 100% black with no margin for error, he completely loses the will to live.
Despite all the jokes about the faults of modern black culture, there is a very noticable dark undercurrent of casual racism in the show that shows that, for all the ways its used as an excuse when its not present, racism still plays a HUGE part in society, which white society tries to ignore or excuse away, and there is a very good reason for why things are the way they are. And this is not fictional, that is what real life is like.
