Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder has launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a live-action film featuring one of his most beloved and reviled characters. Kickstarter is a trademark of Kickstarter Inc. These guys have walked the tightrope with Ruckus for three seasons now, so I should have more faith, but I can’t shake the feeling that The Uncle Ruckus Movie could very much end up being the racist fairies moment for The Boondocks. I’m a little worried about how this movie will end up, assuming it gets made. Removed from that context, Ruckus isn’t much but a white supremacist’s wet dream. McGruder and company have a big challenge in front of them. Chappelle’s Show mined racial humor to great effect for years, but Dave Chappelle, while working on a sketch about racist fairies , found himself in a situation where he realized that people were probably laughing at his racial humor instead of laughing with him.
And McGruder has created a Kickstarter page to help with some of the funding! If you have additional news that doesn’t appear here, shoot us a link!

Trends are not projections. Right now, I’m cautious. Boondocks film seeks funding on Kickstarter February 1st – via: He’s the ultimate black white supremacist, as eager to appease every caucasian he ever met as he is to denigrate any non-white who steps within an eighty-eight mile radius of him. With The Boondocks having been off the air for several years without any word on the rumored fourth season, McGruder has announced, via Kickstarter, a live-action film based on Uncle Ruckus.

The Uncle Ruckus Movie
And Teh has created a Kickstarter page to help with some of the funding! February 21st – via: Movue stereotypes became the funny part, instead of the situations those stereotypes were put into.
Have a new tag we should add? I feel like if they don’t, I’m going to have to deal with another few years of dudes quoting the movie at me at parties in an attempt to show how cool they are. The truly long wait for The Boondocks season 4 is still on!
Removed from that context, Ruckus isn’t much but a white supremacist’s wet dream. The line between a really good joke and a really ugly joke can be thin, and giving Ruckus his own spotlight seems like an almost-surefire way to tilt things toward ugliness.

I’ve been rewatching The Boondocksand as far as character concepts go, he has a stunning amount of depth. February 15th – via:
