Uncle Ruckus

Uncle Ruckus (voiced by GaryAnthony Williams): An overweight black man with a grotesque appearance who idolizes old enslaved black slave culture. Ruckus is self-hating, disassociating himself from his African-American heritage as best he can, and instead championing whatever small traces of Native American, French, and Irish ancestry he may have. His greatest wish is that black people were still enslaved, because he believes that they were better off that way. He claims to have a mythical disease called “re-vitiligo”(“It’s the opposite of what Michael Jackson’s got, lucky bastard” as he always retorts). His hatred of black people is strongly evidenced in the episode “The Garden Party” to the point that when Riley, Huey and Granddad arrive he exclaims “We have a ‘code black’ at the main gate”. During the same episode Ruckus performs an impromptu song entitled “Don’t Trust Them New Niggas Over There”. Ironically, he is the darkest-skinned character on the show. His character is a hyperbolic parody of the self-hating black man. However, as much as he may hate black culture, he has been shown in other episodes to still socialize with the Freemans. In “Or Die Trying”, Ruckus demonstrates a mastery of the nunchaku and hand to hand combat, equaling or possibly exceeding Huey’s skills. In an unaired episode lampooning BET, he becomes the subject of a self-titled reality show, and is horrified to learn he is actually Black. (The self-titled reality shows states he is102% African with a two percent margin of error)
