Grew Up... in Alabama. Robert Freeman grew up right in the middle of the Jim Crow South. After fighting in World War II in the Tuskegee Airmen, he returned home and “participated” in several key moments of the Civil Rights Movement.
Living... in Woodcrest, Maryland. Robert became the legal guardian of his grandchildren Huey and Riley Freeman after the death of their parents. He used their inheritance money to move the family to the affluent, white suburb of Woodcrest in Maryland. It was a big shock to Huey and Riley, who had lived on the gritty South Side of Chicago.
Profession... retired. Granddad now lives of off his pension and Huey and Riley’s inheritance. Unfortunately, he spends money frivolously and one time even had to sell his own freedom to get out of debt.
Interests... taking credit. Although Robert did participate in some civil rights marches, he tends to exaggerate how much of an impact he had. For example, he skipped a Birmingham protest due to the high likelihood of attacks from fire hoses and police dogs. However, he resents that Rosa Parks gets all the glory for refusing to give up her seat on the bus after the driver ignored the fact that he had refused first.
Relationship Status... widower. Little is known of Robert’s wife, but he has become quite the womanizer in his old age. He frequents dating sites and constantly tries to get with women who are significantly younger than him. That’s how he got his peculiar (and off-color) nickname from Xzibit: “Granddad ‘Bitches’ Freeman. Hoo! Gotta nice ring to it.”
Challenge... keeping his grandchildren in line. Between Huey radicalism and Riley’s delinquent attitude, Robert is constantly losing his mind trying to keep the two boys out of trouble. So he’s not afraid to take off his belt and resort to some old-fashioned corporal punishment.
Personality... prideful. Robert is a stubborn old man with a high opinion of himself, which frequently gets him and his family into some sticky situations.
