The Boondocks

“Huey Freeman (voiced by Regina King) is the voice-of-reason and moral compass of the family, and a spokesperson for contemporary Afrocentrism. He is an intelligent, wise-beyond-his-years ten-year-old who is an avid reader and knowledgeable about a variety of subjects. He is heavily influenced by the theories of various left-wing social movements and social justice leaders. He is constantly ridiculed and underestimated by his family, who think he is a fool for having goals and values that aim higher than those of the lower class environment from which they came. In the show, it is mentioned that Huey has been declared a “domestic terrorist”. While Huey promotes various social causes, he is openly contemptuous of African-American pop culture as portrayed in mainstream media for glamorizing wasteful extravagance, self-defeating lifestyles, and ignorance. Unlike the other characters, Huey rarely smiles; although, in the episode “Let’s Nab Oprah”, he smiles after his duel with Riley, he also smiles when Riley begins to succeed in winning basketball games in the episode “Ballin'”. He is also a skilled martial artist, beating Riley with ease in all of their fights, and has only lost to a few other opponents.”
