The Boondocks Wiki

The New Black is the 10th episode of season 4 and series finale of The Boondocks. It aired on June 23, 2014.


Riley Freeman is targeted after using a homophobic slur (the word "gay") at a kid dancing, which becomes viral, then Robert and Rollo Goodlove tell the protesters that Riley uses "gay" against something he doesn't like because he has special needs.


  • This marks the return of Rollo Goodlove.
  • It's revealed that the only kind of white people that Ruckus can't stand are gay white people, and Average White Band, cause he claims "they make n-word music".
  • This is the second time Riley Freeman has been on the media for school issues. (This time, however, Riley is the perpetuator, not the victim.)
  • Philbert Slowlove was voiced by the late Tommy "Tiny" Lister, the actor who played Debo from the movie Friday and his character design is similar to that of Debo.
  • The song "Stomp 'em in the nuts" by Thugnificent is played when Riley is beaten up by the special children.
