His OWN age?! Butch beat the crap out of a full grown infantery drill instructor AND broke the leg of one of the other members of Lethal Interjection, a kid his own age wouldnt stand a chance no matter how badass he was. Riley standing up to this ogre is nothing short of balls the size of Jupiter.
Tom of all people gets one in "Tom, Sarah, and Usher." Sarah meets Usher, falls in love, then kicks Tom out of the house, who then stays with Huey's family. They call in A Pimp Named Slickback to help him. Tom goes to the place Sarah is meeting Usher and he then calls her a bitch, tells her to get her ass in the car, and, instead of pimp-smacking her like A Pimp Named Slickback had been telling him to, he bitch slaps Usher.

Uncle Ruckus' racial-slur laced (more so than usual, and with a far greater variety) tirade about the "n-word" in "The S-Word".
Huey's monologue in "The Trial Of Robert Kelly"
Huey: What the hell is wrong with you people? Every famous nigga that gets arrested is not Nelson Mandela. Yes, the government conspires to put a lot of innocent men in jail off of fallacious charges. But R. Kelly is not one of those men. We all know the nigga can sing, but what happened to standards? What happened to bare minimums? You a fan of R. Kelly? You wanna help R. Kelly? Then get some counseling for R. Kelly. Introduce him to some older women. Hide his camcorder, but don't pretend like the man is a hero. *Huey leaves... then immediately comes back.* Huey:And stop the damn dancing! Act like you got some goddamn sense, people! Damn. Done playing around here.

In the Alternate Universe episode "Return Of The King", Martin Luther King Jr. returns to life in 2000 after thirty-two years of being in a coma after being shot. He finds himself disgusted with modern African-American culture, particularly things like BET and Soul Plane. He decides to have a public event to address his concerns, but it is hijacked by an urban promotion firm and turned into a wild party, complete with rap music and fights. After attempting to get the crowd's attention, he finally shouts out the one thing that will make them listen.
Martin Luther King Jr.:WILL YOU IGNORANT NIGGAS PLEASE SHUT THE HELL UP?!
*crowd goes completely silent, in a state of shock*
Person in crowd: Did he just say what I think he said?
Martin Luther King Jr.: Is this it? This is what I got all those ass-whoopings for? I had a dream once. It was a dream that little black boys and little black girls would drink from the river of prosperity, freed from the thirst of oppression. But lo' and behold, some four decades later, what have I found but a bunch of trifling, shiftless, good-for-nothing niggas. And I know you some of you don't want to hear me say that word — it's the ugliest word in the English language. But that's what I see now — niggas. And you don't want to be a nigga. Because niggas are living contradictions. Niggas are full of unfulfilled ambitions. Niggas wax and wane. Niggas love to complain. Niggas love to hear themselves talk but hate to explain. Niggas love being another man's judge and jury. Niggas procrastinate until it's time to worry. Niggas love to be late. Niggas hate to hurry! [...] Black Entertainment Television is the worst thing I've ever seen in my life![...] Usher, Michael Jackson is NOT a genre of music! [...] And now I'd like to talk about Soul Plane''. [...] I've seen what's around the corner. I've seen what's over the horizon and I promise you, you niggas have nothing to celebrate! And no, I won't get there with you. I'm going to Canada.
As a bonus awesome moment, this episode won a Peabody Award, due in no small part to the above tirade.
"The Passion Of Uncle Ruckus":
Huey, who had been portrayed as an atheist the entire episode finally breaks down upon the realization that he's only a kid who can't do everything. With nowhere else to turn, he breaks down and prays:
Huey: I've never prayed before. I don't even know who I'm praying to. I may be too young to know what the world is supposed to be, but it's not supposed to be this. It can't be this. So please...
Ruckus giving a passionate racist speech during a lightning storm.
Uncle Ruckus: Now let us pray. Lord, I have spent my whole life hatin' you for makin' me black. And now I see I must hate myself and all those like me, and cause them misery just like your savior Ronald Reagan did. And if any of my words don't come directly from the almighty God himself, then may I be struck by lightnin' right this very instant! Halle— *gets struck by lightning*
Shabazz's execution is happening while Ruckus is making that speech. It turns into a double CMoA when the same lightning bolt that strikes Ruckus shuts down the power to the electric chair long enough for the governor's call to come through.
The lowest-common-denominator, exploitative-violence climax of 'Grandpa's Fight' is put on pause for a moment so Huey (as the narrator) can observe, "You know, we could all be reading a book now."
"THEN, YOU GOT KICKED IN YO CHEST!"
"The Red Ball":
The Woodcrest team replace the crooked ref with their own crooked ref - Uncle Ruckus. He's just as bad to the Chinese as he is to African-Americans.
Riley: Fuck you. Fuck the plane you flew in on. Fuck them shoes. Fuck those socks with the belt on it. Fuck your gay ass fairy fagot accent. Fuck them cheap ass cigars. Fuck your yuckmouth teeth. Fuck your hairpiece. Fuck your chocolate. Fuck Guy Ritchie. Fuck Prince William. Fuck the Queen. This is America. My president is black and my Lambo is blue nigga. Now get the fuck out my hotel room and if I see you on the street I'm slapping the shit out of you
In "The Trial of R.Kelly" Riley wins in an argument against Tom (a fucking district attorney) about what R. Kelly did wrong and why the underaged victim couldn't have just moved or stopped R. Kelly from peeing on her.
Sergeant Gutter's response video to Thugnificent in "From Bitches to Rags".
Thugnificent's Take That rant against Sgt. Gutter was pretty awesome too.
"The Fried Chicken Flu":
The tear gas scene.
Thugnificent saving the Freeman and Dubois families from Betty's militia. Quite remarkable since earlier in the episode, he was kicked out of Robert's house for making out with Tina, Robert's "friend".
Uncle Ruckus gets one for his speech calling out his father during the funeral of his horrible grandmother, combined with a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming for finding out that he loves and is proud of the rest of his just-as-black-as-him family.
Ruckus: No no, thats okay. Keep talking dad, keep talking. Thats the euology this woman deserved. She did this to you, and now you're doing it to me. You've been doing this all our lives, and its getting old, its getting old, its getting real old, old man! So get it all out of your system then sit down AND SHUT THE FUCK UP!!
An entire arc is dedicated to Riley getting his hair braided to match the show. Since Grandad won't let him, Riley in acts a Xanatos Gambit. He spends the entire arc causing trouble around the neighborhood. Since he has a fro, he looks exactly like Huey, who ends up taking the fall for all of Riley's actions. At the end, Riley manages to use reverse psychology on Grandad to allow his hair to get braided. If nothing else, he gets to cause trouble while getting into any himself.
Aaron McGruder's response to the criticism people started giving him for addressing 9/11 only weeks after it happened. To get a pre-emptive strike on the Executive Meddling he was sure would come he replaced The Boondocks with "The Adventures Of Flagee and Ribbon", which according to the editors note provided was replacing The Boondocks as "a hilariously new patriotic offering". Let's just say hewasn'tpullin'anypunches.
Calling out Granddad twice, the first time for refusing to house him when his wife throws him out yet again by shouting "YOU'RE A SELFISH BASTARD ROBERT FREEMAN!" at him as he drives past, and the second time chewing him out for expecting an invite to the flizzy dinner after refusing to feed Tom.
Walking out on a drunken Sara after she makes a spectacle of herself at dinner and refuses to go upstairs and lie down. Even Granddad is impressed.
Sarah: What are you gonna do tom, hit me?
Tom: No, I'm gonna leave you!
Beating the hell out of Flizzy after Flizzy insults him and threatens to steal Sara and Jasmine from him. Even if Flizzy was egging him on on purpose to make Tom look good in front of Sarah.
Young Robert whooping some serious ass in "Freedom Ride or Die".
Sturdy earning his name by simply walking though the mob and casually disarming any of his attackers without hurting them.
Robert calling Sturdy out on wanting to make a Martyr of himself, not caring about the other rider's safety
Freedomland can easily be seen as the crowning episode of awesome.
Huey kicking Ed Wuncler Jr. to begin the slave rebellion.
Hell the entire rebellion was awesome, Granddad freeing Huey, Huey's fight with the security guards, Riley blowing up the park, etc.
The last exchange might Win Back the Crowd for those finding themselves disappointed with the season thus far.
Ruckus: "What could be better than Freedomland?"
Additionally, there's the bit at the beginning where Uncle Ruckus shows that he'll resort to handcuffing Granddad to make him see Wuncler Jr. Cut to Granddad throwing Ruckus' handcuffed ass out of the house.
