The genre now known as Blaxploitation is mix of grit, racial commentary, black power, stereotype and more, all through the perspective of the crazy decade of the 1970s. And all that makes it a good target for satire.
That's the goal of "Black Dynamite" (11:30 p.m. tonight, Adult Swim), a raucous, raunchy, sometimes funny cartoon based on the 2009 film of the same name.
Black Dynamite is the name of the central character voiced by actor Michael Jai White; he's a tough kung-fu fighting pimp/community hero (he runs a Whorphanage, a place for prostitutes and parent-less kids) who takes on any number of adventures against the Man. His sidekick is Bullhorn (Byron Minns); Cream Corn (Tommy Davidson) is the requisite comic relief, and HoneyBee (Kym Whitley) is the head hooker with a heart.
