Huey Freeman grows up, travels back in time, and changes his name to Thomas Sowell.That is so a grown-up Huey.◊ To top it all off, Thomas was a Marxist in his college days, spending 10 years writing treatises on Marxian political economy as it relates to the black struggle. So very Huey-ish.
Ruckus is atoning for his sins.Ruckus is the reincarnation of an intolerant Southern white who lived before the Civil Rights era. Upon his death, his spirit lived on in the form of an incredibly ugly black male as punishment for his treatment towards blacks. But, being a bigoted southerner, he refuses to learn and admit his wrongs, even trying to bring down his entire race on one occasion, a possible Take That towards Civil War and Post Civil War-era Southerners. He acts like a "self-hating" black man.
The Kool-Aid Lady at "Pause" is Ruckus's sister.They both have bug eyes and abnormal behavior.
Huey Freeman is a descendant of Afro Samurai.His sword is a family heirloom. Huey wants to follow in his footsteps◊.
Ed III is competent on his own. He only does stupid things because he listens to Gin Rummy.Every time Ed does something crazy, he's with Gin Rummy. The one time Gin Rummy sits out ("The Fundraiser"), Ed demonstrates he's Badass and can have decent judgment.
Riley Freeman is gayMuch of his screen time is dedicated to his telling people that he isn't gay and implying/making jokes that they are. Maybe he is just young and confused about his sexuality and he is trying to hide it, because he identifies with a culture that places emphasis on bravado and masculinity. Perhaps when he is older he will be able to make better sense of his identity and will be able to come out. No homo.
The new Karate Kid is The Boondocks Movie.After the series, Huey and Riley's mother is alive and well and comes back for her kids. Riley comes to live with her while Huey stays with his grandpa.
Everyone is badass in this series because everyone imitates action shows and video games.Besides Luna's matches being explicitly based off of Mortal Kombat, there is the noteworthy detail that everyone seems to be skilled at fighting, but no normal training or tactics is ever mentioned. Ed III doesn't act like a combat vet, he acts like he's living in a First Person Shooter. Huey seems to have learned how to wield a katana by watching Samurai Champloo, and Cindy seems to have learned to fight by watching Naruto.
The fried-chicken flu was real.(Mostly) Everybody was infected with it before the episode even happened, they just didn't know it. It lay dormant in them until the episode came along. It awoke and caused the symptoms Huey listed, resulting in a mass pandemic and collapse of society around the world. Only those who didn't eat fried chicken ever were not infected, thus they never showed any symptoms. After the initial scare was over, the virus went dormant, waiting to strike once again.
The series will be renewed for a fourth season where they move back to the city because life in Woodcrest is too insane.The series is too popular to cancel, but there isn't much plot left in Woodcrest, unless they want to get into Jazmine and Huey's relationship.
Ruckus's arrest in the Obama episode was ordered by the white shadowAll to keep Huey in town for some unknown purpose.
Sarah had a hidden meaning when she said "Missing out on a lot of things." in Date with the Health InspectorShe may look reserved, but something tells me Sarah has a wild side.
Robert's car, Dorothy, was named either after his desceased wife or a previous lover
Some random guessing
Each character is a representation of certain archetypes within the black community
Uncle Ruckus will sing a parody of Tigger's song from Winnie the Pooh.
The fourth season will center on the Freemans moving to California.
Grandad subconsiously harbor's guilt for accidentally killing Stinkmeaner.That is what's allowing Stinkmeaner to come back and try to exact his revenge as opposed to the idea that Stinkmeaner is just that evil, which he really is anyway. Grandad doesn't openly show any remorse for his action only because of what it'll cause people(especially Riley) to think of him.
The origin of Uncle Ruckus.He in fact does have revitiligo, Bunny Ruckus didn't make that up; it's safe to say it's not a rip off from Micheal Jackson's vitiligo because this took place before Micheal Jackson was even born. The story was a white man did leave Ruckus on Bunny's and Mister's porch. After they discovered the baby and Mister also discovered the money Mister decided marry Bunny, then he eventually had a cuple of kids with Bunny and thus officially tying Mister to Bunny. If that white man didn't leave any money with Ruckus, Mister and probably Bunny would of never took the white baby(Uncle Ruckus).
The origin of The White Shadow.He actually is a government agent, probably assigned to monitor Huey because of his involvement in underground black militant organizations. However, at some point he grew sympathetic to Huey's philosophy and went rogue. He was absent from Season 2 and most of Season 3 because he was ordered to stop fraternizing with the target, but breaks his silence in "It's Goin Down" when Huey is in actual danger.
Uncle Ruckus was like Huey in his youth.He wasn't capable to hold the weight of his ideals and to bear the degradation of his people. He collapsed for the depression, falling to what he's today.
Jazmine will wise up about the world around her and support Huey more actively in his goals
There will be a climactic final battle between Huey and Wuncler or Debra LeevilThe show needs to get more epic.
Uncle Ruckus's "father" hates him because he's not the daddyThat's why he calls his dad "Mister" (oh yeah, he's "adopted") and is named after his real father. His mother is an Aunt Jemima—even dying her hair blonde—and instead of saying, "daddy hates you because I slept with his brother 9 months before you were born" she says, "daddy hates you because you're adopted and white and he hates white people for no reason." He's still as opposite of Michael Jackson as can be.
Michael Caesar will never appear on the show.If they wanted him, he would have been on the show by now.
"The Color Ruckus" takes place after the rest of the series.At the end of that episode, Uncle Ruckus said that he should have "sympathy for the black man" instead of hatred. In season 4, he does not seem to be standing by that moral that he learned.
Gin Rummy, Ed Wuncler III, and Thugnificent will not appear in season 4.It really pains me to make that guess.
Siri made Robert $500,000 by engaging in high-frequency trading.Because at this point, she wasn't trying to sabotage Robert's life, so it's reasonable to conclude that whatever she did was legal.
"The New Black" is the final episode of the seriesThere hasn't been any word of any additional episodes, this season is already said to be the final one, and the episode was probably so offensive with the portrayal of gays and mentally retarded people, that it got abruptly cancelled. Or maybe it was the writers' way of going out in style. "We're done with this sh**".
