Scotty B : "Richie ran away from you a long time ago, and who could blame him?" *INSTANT FATALITY*

the disappointed koala : Virgil's dad is such a badass

Mr. Popo : Roast his assss pops!!!!!!

JS S : This show really connects to some serious topic!!!!! I really wished they'd bring it back.

Tobirama Senju : Static's dad looks too much like Martin Luther King Jr. especially the way he starts preaching to Gear's dad 😂😛lol

MagicGummyFruit : This is how people should respond to racists. It hurts to be patient and calm but it's much more effective for better

striker0 : I can understand how Static's father feels about guys like Gear's father. Growing up my dad hated Blacks & Hispanics, but I didn't think twice about them. He was also homophobic, but once again, I didn't have the same feelings as him. I think perhaps being born in the 40s might have influenced him, but I never did find out because he would always change the subject. This show put some major issues under the microscope, like racial differences & hating something because you didn't understand it. Most shows nowadays don't even come remotely close to that.

Better than you : Cancle the 2010's, bring back the 2000's

Colton Spellman : This show along with the ORIGINAL teen titans hit on some real issues.

AndrewsFaceTime : This show still holds up to this day. Great kids show for it's time! #90sFTW

jakeTHEripper234 : am I the only one who thought Virgil's dad was cool as fuck?

stomyn : This is why Mr. Hawkins remains one of the best characters in the DCAU, and probably one of the best characters in cartoon history

spartan001191 : this show i s real

Jaiden Hackett : His dad like Martin Luther King

Davalious : Virgil's dad is a good person

Sean Hastings : The relationship between Richie and his dad is very similar to the one I have with mine.

Jackie Hallam : It's not OK to be racist.

KING JAM : Back shows had a message for the world to relate to

TheRayVerse : Now someone explain why Static Shock doesn't have a movie yet?

Marc Rizkalla : This scene/episode alone made me a fan of Static Shock. Wasn't a huge fan due to the rap/ hip-hop heavy soundtrack, but this scene made Virgil's dad one of my favorite DC Animated 'minor' characters

SuperSoldier26 : 1:50 D**n straight

Afr0Thund3r : "You need my help, whether you like it or not!"

Kaleb Walker : Even as a child, I absolutely *adored* Virgil's dad.

Takoji's Challenges : Mr Hawkins: Master of roasting!

Dan Roxas : This sounds crazy but Robert (Virgil's dad) reminds me of Uncle Phil.

Motterman1 : This show did more for equality and reaching the next generation then every protest of the last 3 years

jakeTHEripper234 : i forgot how real this show was

Brandon Votaw : African Americans are so cool

Negative Alien : this was a real cartoon before people got soft and protested everything

DrNal Nikmal : funny thing is, some of the things statics dad says could be applied to everything going on with BLM.

LeftyStegman : Back when shows taught you lessons

Yahiko25 : Virgil's dad is the best superhero that doesn't have or need any superpowers, scientific powers, gadgets, or a lot of money.

Urdnot Stark : Y'know, mad props to Kevin Michael Richardson. Typically he plays the larger than life comic relief in most of his voice work. Glad to see him shine in more serious roles like this.

MegaManDBZX : "Cause of the way you are, you'll never really know him." Does that imply that Robert knows that Richie is gay and his dad doesn't?

Creepy Closet : This is pretty deep for a kids show

cherrieblossomgurl : Virgil's dad is awesome!

Wing0Alchemist : I mean, Static's dad was dead on, but I've found that when you have a bigot's attention, it helps to not say things that put them totally on the defensive. Say I have a bigot who works as an engineer. I tell him that he's smarter than his bigotry. Things like that. It's worked for me in the pass when trying to get through relatives that were homophobic.

Jorge Pim : Writers don't make episodes lke this anymore

rcc1111 : I love how the characters try to understand each other in order to change themselves, nowadays people just want to see you punished immediately for whatever viewpoint you hold.

MannyKunV : every second of this segment was just a savage beat down and reality check

Jon Phu : And what's ironic about Richie's dad, is from what I read on the wiki that he's Irish. And back in the 1900s, the Irish were pretty much in the same boat with the African Americans. At least that's what I think I know.

Cart Lane : I wish more shows were like this nowadays, instead of being cash cows only focusing on their stolen "jokes" from dead internet memes instead of actual plot and morals (I'm looking at you teen titans go and power puff girls)

soujilove : deep

Deloris Richardson : I miss Static Shock.

TBot Alpha : It occurs to me that the difference between being "real" and being "preachy" is just a matter of perspective. Not casting shade on anyone, here. Just thinking out loud.

PloKoon09 : DEEP

Mariama Joazard : Watching old shows that I loved as a kid now when I'm a teen make me see how educational and deep they truly were

DEATHcomes2uNOW : This scene shows how racism should be dealt with

Kira Suzuki : GET WRECKED

Francis Jeremy Xavyer : Hit dat bigot hard, Captain Gantu!
