Probably. The best character was Granddad, AKA Robert Jebediah "Bitches" Freeman

Huey just tells it like it is but he's not supposed to be right about everything or he wouldn't be a retired domestic terrorist. He's just also the voice of reason

Also there's a reason why most people's favorite character is usually Grandad

Uncle Ruckus was the greatest

I think the point is that Huey is right, it's just that he's also really stupid about it and being right ultimately doesn't matter. He was born into a culture of violence and ignorance, and created in an era where basically any attempt to do better was replaced with more violence and ignorance.

You can see this most clearly during the R Kelly episode really early on where he basically comes in to say "Yes, the system is fucked, but you dumb motherfuckers are just as bad.". Huey doesn't have a real solution to the problem at hand, but thats mainly because nobody except maybe Tom even WANTS a solution, they just want more violence and ignorance. That's basically the point of every other episode.

But ultimately Huey doesn't exist outside that environment. His flaws ultimately stem from the fact that he's just another black kid from Chicago who uses violence and a bad attitude to solve problems. He's just more sophisticated about how he goes about it.

He's supposed to be naive and hypocritical. He may be insufferable if you're autistic honestly.

I thought half the point was supposed to be that he was an asshole sometimes and he takes things too far.

I liked him more in Season 1 when he was willing to argue with people instead of just being quiet and stone-faced all the time.

I get that Huey is the voice of reason, but how are you supposed to tell apart his own opinions and pessimistic bullshit from facts?

What is Huey's political leaning? I can't quite place it.

Henry Walker

There were many times during the show's run where Huey's viewpoint was questioned, even downright criticized. The whole point is he's opinionated, yes, but at the end of the day he's still a child and lacks a ton of life experience.

Every time with this.
Huey was an insert for blacks who get a little reading done and think they know it all, but don't. I'd make a pot/kettle joke but we're already strained on things going over the audience's head.

The show even goes out its way to highlight his flaw many times yet people miss it. In the very first episode Huey has what he assumes is a prophetic dream about making a crowd of white people "woke" and worried, when it happens in real life they just laugh at him mouthing off about things above his head or don't affect them. Speaking of not being a good friend, when he first acts dismissive of Jazmine's friendship he comes back with a bruised ego and face after Cairo treats him similarly. HINT. HINT.

How do people see this shit and then somehow miss it? Is your 3rd eye half blind? Huey's whole character and arc is
Do something about that fat head, big brain, or you'll never get it out of your ass
McGruder's insert was in the comic no one read. The well-read-but-not-too-bookish, street-savvy-but-not-too-gutter, constantly-getting-a-leg-up-on-the-smart-Huey-but-it's-no-big-deal Caesar.

People let their hate of Huey make them think they've got some scheme sketched out without realizing he like the other characters is getting the exact reaction you're supposed to, he's just a distillation of black community stereotypes. The only thing you're reading out of his hyperbolic stubborn black militant act, the overly impressionable Riley, the dubious historian Robert, the self-hating Ruckus, the self-bleaching and sheltering Tom, the subsequently culturally and consciously naive Jazmine, the callous opportunistic Pimp Named Slickback and Rollo Goodlove, the self-deluded Gangstalicious and Thugnificient, etc is just the obvious. And all of them are presented having their reasons and good and bad.
When you only think one way or assume something else about them it says something about you, not Aaron.
