The appeal of the character continues to elude me.

Still convinced the primary reason white kids like him is that quoting him is an excuse to drop N-bombs.

Yeah, I wish they'd included more of the crazy Bob Ross knockoff instead of Uncle Ruckus.

For me it's the combination of virtue and self-loathing. He's a decent and honest man who doesn't think it should be possible for him to be decent and honest.

We saw in a much later episode that his frame of mind has everything to do with his upbringing, where both of his parents felt inferior for being black, but they dealt with it differently. The father would bully and abuse his "nigger" son, while the mother would reassure young Ruckus that he was wasn't really black.

Plus tuba music follows him around. I'd say "cracker" all the time if it would make tuba music.

The idea that white kids love saying nigger soooo much that they turn any vehicle for them to participate into their favorite thing by proxy is a new and terrifying world to me. A kind of politically correct limbo where the people DYING to say it are too sheepish to do it on their own.

For me, it only seems to have power in context. When a hateful person says it because someone they don't like is black, then that's where it's offensive.

In a similar vein, I know several middle-aged guys of all colors who still use "what up, mah nigga?" and it just sounds soooo STUPID coming out of their mouths...

Supafly: You'd be surprised. I regard Dave Chapelle as a little egomaniacal, but he cites a measurable uptick in white fans casually N-bombing him as part of his reasons for quitting TV.

Society is too mentally lazy to detect and understand context.

Is uncle ruckus a thing among white kids?

All I see is a funny bit charecter for the main charecters to react to.

It's sort of the biggest tragedy of The Boondocks (And really a lot of comedy that examines african american culture from a satirical standpoint) is the fact that it's continuously misinterpreted by dumb white people and used as an excuse for them to act racist.

I really wish more people who watched this show understood that there's a difference between Aaron McGruder satirically examining the group of people he belongs to and dumbass white teenagers calling people "Niggas" and insisting it isn't racist because they're using it to mean "ignorant motherfuckers"

I assumed this character exists to demonstrate the stupid crap black kids have to deal with as to why they are supposedly inferior, but a white character saying these things would have tanked the show in two episodes.

Ruckus is a black man saying these things because we're all still too racist a culture to be comfortable admitting its white people who talk like that constantly.
