The Boondocks: Is Riley Oprah's Greatest Enemy?

It had been over two years since we'd seen a new episode of The Boondocks, but at long last, this past Sunday night, Aaron McGruder's Peabody Award winning series returned for an all new season.

To mark the occasion, IGN TV has been spotlighting a different character from The Boondocks each week, to give you an idea on where they're coming from… and just how offbeat a place that can be.

This week, we've got Riley Freeman.

Character Description: Riley Freeman is Huey's wannabe thugged out brother. He often refers to himself as "Riley Escobar" and "Young Reezy". Riley can be seen as representative of the misguided black youth as he aspires to be like the rap artists and gangsters he admires. He has a fascination for firearms, and his tendency for violence is displayed time and time again. His criminal aptitude is put to the test when he goes on some crime sprees with the incompetent Ed Wuncler III and Gin Rummy in the episode "Let's Nab Oprah", during which he effectively acts as the brains behind the operation to kidnap Oprah. Riley is voiced by actress Regina King, who also voices Huey Freeman.
