‘The Boondocks’ Uncle Ruckus Discusses Michael Jackson, R. Kelly, Trump & More On ‘The Breakfast Club’
Uncle Ruckus and Charlamagne Tha God also discussed reparations, 2020 Democratic presidential candidates, and more.
Uncle Ruckus, the self-hating, white man-loving Boondocks character, recently served as a guest on The Breakfast Club. The fictional character (voiced by Gray Anthony Williams) spoke with Breakfast Club co-host Charlamagne Tha God about a number of topics including Michael Jackson, R. Kelly, Jussie Smollett, Donald Trump, and more.

“You’ve always thought R. Kelly was guilty. What do you think about him getting charged with 10 counts of sexual abuse,” Charlamagne asks Ruckus.
“I will say this about R. Kelly. First of all you shouldn’t do what he did. But second of all at least he had the common decency and sense not to make love to or piss on any white children and that’s what I appreciate it. Leave the white children alone,” Ruckus says.
From there, the two discuss Jackson, with Ruckus speaking on his jealousy of Jackson’s vitiligo which was confirmed in an autopsy following his death. Ruckus often says he has “re-vitiligo,” which has caused his skin to get darker.
“I am not a fan of his and do think nature is not kind,” Ruckus says of Jackson. “Nature gave Michael Jackson — that little child molester Michael Jackson — nature give him vitiligo, which made him go from a colored man to a beautiful, beautiful white man.”
“And here I am with the exact opposite,” he continues. “I am not pleased that nature messed me up like that and did something good for a child molester and could not help me out.”
Recently, Jackson memorabilia from The Children’s Museum of Indianapolis was removed as a result of the controversy surrounding Leaving Neverland. Radio stations in New Zealand and Canada have pulled Jackson’s music too.
