About Uncle WilbertEdit

When Michael is suspended from school for fighting a rival classmate named Bobby Jenkins, who taunted him because he got a better report card than him, Wilbert, along with Florida, meets with him and his parents, who drop by the apartment to talk about the incident. Florida, along with the others, maintain that Michael would never resort to fighting, as he "doesn't believe in violence". When Mr. Jenkins threatens to have Michael expelled, Wilbert, who just happened to be visiting from Detroit while James was out of town, and is known to have a quick temper, responds by calling him "Balloon Belly!"

When it's learned by the family that Michael and Bobby were fighting because of Bobby's taunting him for his report card, which were given out the day before, Wilbert and Florida goes to talk to his principal.
