Uncle Ruckus Talks About His Birth on 'The Boondocks'Uncle Ruckus tells the supposed story of his birth on 'The Boondocks' (Sun., 11:30PM ET on COM) -- and it sounds a lot like 'The Curious Case of Benjamin Button.'

But instead of being born already in his eighties, Uncle Ruckus is born white. The doctor tells his white father, "It's a rare and incurable skin disease ... His skin will continue to grow blacker and blacker, and eventually he will be indistinguishable from a Negro."

So his father leaves him on a stoop, and an African-American couple discovers him. The husband has no interest in keeping him. But the woman (or Uncle Ruckus' real mother who told him this story?) says, "No, this ain't no regular baby. It's a white baby. It's the most beautiful white baby in the whole wide world," she says.
