The Boondocks, the popular and polarizing comic strip turned Adult Swim TV series, may be coming to a theater near you — if creator Aaron McGruder gets his way.

The outspoken artist is launching a Kickstarter campaign to raise money for a feature film based on the show’s most controversial character: the self-hating black man, Uncle Ruckus.

Kickstarter is a private for-profit company which helps creative artists fund their projects through public donations.

The Ruckus character infamously insists he has “reverse vitiligo” to explain his dark complexion and frequently rails against beloved African-American figures such as Martin Luther King Jr. and President Barack Obama.

The satirical character (voiced by comedian Gary Anthony Williams) was conceived and created for Boondocks television series and has become one of the most popular facets of the show.

Below you can watch the teaser clip of Uncle Ruckus presenting himself to the live world, and leave your reaction for us in the comments section below.
