    The Hunger Strike

    UNAIRED EPISODE: To protest the manipulative and damaging programming coming from the cable network BET, Huey goes on a hunger strike. While his crusade doesn't inspire Granddad or Riley, it does attract the attention of BET executive Deborah Leevil, who resolves to see that it doesn't stand in the way of her network's plan to destroy black people everywhere. But following a visit from the ex-funk music star-turned-publicity-hogging talk radio host, Reverend Rollo Goodlove, Huey finds he has an ally in his fight. Huey is encouraged by the supportive crowd that has come to hear the outspoken Goodlove at a large outdoor rally. Despite its success, he still cannot get Granddad or Riley to join the strike or his upcoming march on BET's headquarters. Yet, as the public campaign against the company gains momentum, Huey worries about the message Reverend Goodlove's lifestyle is sending to their supporters, especially after Mistress Leevil airs a video of Rollo cavorting at a notorious strip club. Though Reverend Goodlove tries putting the best possible face on the nightclub escapade, as well as a checkered past that includes a host of public scandals, Huey worries that the Reverend's reputation will hurt the boycott. However, as his vast experience with bad publicity helps him to deflect this latest round of criticism, too, Goodlove ratchets up his attack on the network with a DVD that documents BET's negative effects on the black community. So, to undermine support for the protest, Leevil co-opts Reverend Goodlove with an offer of a show of his very own. And as Huey finally decides to call off the hunger strike, he learns that Uncle Ruckus has also been given a new show on BET.

    The Story of Catcher Freeman

    Over Riley's objections, Granddad retells the story of the boys' great-great-great-great-grandfather, Catcher Freeman. According to Granddad, it all began on the plantation of Confederate Colonel George Lynchwater, whose slaves believed that Catcher Freeman, a former slave who led an army of rebellion, was going to kill their master and secure their freedom. Not believing any of it, a slave named Tobias was planning to gain his freedom with a screenplay he was sure Lynchwater would produce, which would allow him to marry a beautiful slave named Thelma. Impatient to be free, Thelma tried to escape on her own, only to be run down and caught. But when she was rescued by Catcher, it was love at first sight and she agreed to help his brigade carry out an assault on the plantation. Although betrayed by Tobias, Catcher freed the slaves and married Thelma. However, Uncle Ruckus claims that the true story is very different from Granddad's. In the version told by Ruckus, and the only one that actually interests Riley, "Catcha" Freeman wasn't interested in freeing slaves, but rather was someone with an extraordinary ability to return them to their masters after they escaped. True to form, Ruckus claims that slavery was the best thing that ever happened to the black race, and that Colonel Lynchwater was really a kindly plantation owner whose slaves were lazy and worthless. Though Granddad disagrees, Ruckus remembers Thelma as a conniving woman who lured Catcha into an ambush by her fellow slaves before living out her life with him in Boston.

    The S Word

    In the heat of a classroom argument, Riley's third grade teacher, Mr. Petto, loses his cool and calls him "n***a." As the media seizes upon the outburst and school officials decry the use of the "N-word" as a violation of district policy, Mr. Petto claims that he only did it after Riley used it first. Ignoring Huey's warnings, Granddad hopes to make the school board pay dearly with a discrimination lawsuit. Riley is more than willing to play along, and he and Granddad promote their cause with a series of television appearances alongside the adversarial conservative commentator Ann Coulter. And after Tom reluctantly agrees to represent them, Granddad brings on the outrageous Reverend Rollo Goodlove to help make their case. As both Coulter and Uncle Ruckus find nothing wrong with Petto's use of the term, Tom points out that there is no way the school district will ever agree to pay the half-million dollars Granddad and Goodlove are asking. Dismissing Tom, Goodlove takes their demands to the school superintendent, who laughs him out of his office. Undaunted, the Reverend blusters that it is only the opening salvo in a barrage of criticism to be leveled at the district. But what few people realize is that, in an effort to use the lawsuit to promote his new show on BET, Goodlove is actually working with Ann Coulter to create a firestorm of publicity about the case.

    The Uncle Ruckus Reality Show

    UNAIRED EPISODE: In the wake of Huey's failed protest against the network, BET's Harvard-educated programming chief, Weggie Rudlin, is moving ahead with his promise to create The Uncle Ruckus Reality Show. An unrepentant racist who never misses a chance to disparage blacks and venerate whites, Ruckus is sure that he is really a white man who has been afflicted with a skin disease that makes it appear otherwise. And he not only remains a champion of segregation, but is also a firm believer that education is wasted on anyone who is black. After learning that Tom was genetically tested to determine his ethnic makeup, Ruckus decides that the same kind of test would prove what he has believed all along - that he's white. But when the test results come back, Ruckus is dismayed to discover that he is 102% African. As the news plunges him into deep despair, Ruckus finds it impossible to get out of bed, creating huge problems for his new TV show. Now convinced that he is black, Uncle Ruckus first quits all his jobs and then heads for the Freeman house to start living his new life. When truth is just too difficult to accept, Ruckus first tries doing everything he can to defend the reputation of the white man before deciding to end his torment by taking his own life. Yet, after rushing in to stop the suicide, Rudlin makes it absolutely clear that BET sees the show as a cornerstone in their campaign to destroy the black race. And after being tortured by Rudlin, the scientist who administered the DNA test renounces his earlier assessment and tells a relieved Uncle Ruckus that he is white after all.
