Reverend Rollo Goodlove (voiced by Cee-Lo Green) is an African-American left-wing activist whose activism seems more to get him media exposure than to show his opinion on the issue. His manurisms are over the top and has a strong liking to wigs, changing them every other scene. He is also a "preacher", but it is unknown if he is the pastor of a church or not.

He originally appeared in the Boondocks episode The S-Word, as a supporter of the Freemans after Mr. Petto used a racial "slur" on Riley. He then turned it into a political debate between himself and Ann Coulter (which was carefully orchestrated) giving him more media exposure. His protest was overshadowed (forcefully with rifles) by elderly women protested for the right to own guns. Granddad was certain he will receive lots of money for the incident. He also helped Huey in a hunger strike in an attempt to pull BET off the air, but Rollo was offered a TV sitcom to be aired on BET, which led to him no longer aiding Huey's strike.

He returns in the Season 4 episode, The New Black, where he help the Freemans win the fight against the gay community by revealing that Riley is a special needs child because he uses "gay" as a repeating phrase. Cee-Lo Green did not return to voice Rollo in this episode.


  • His character might be modeled after Rev. Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. Two civil rights leaders and activists.
  • Everytime he appears on the show, uptempo Gospel music plays in the background.
