[ # ] Black-ish takes on police brutality tonight
February 24th, 2016 under ABC, Anthony Anderson


Black-ish is normally a comedy, but tonight they are taking on a serious issue.
The Johnsons are all sitting in front of the television awaiting the verdict on an alleged police shooting of an African-American teenager. Dre (Anthony Anderson) and his wife (Tracee Ellis Ross) feel differently about how they should talk to their kids about it. Their older kids Zoey (Yara Shahidi) and Andre Jr (Marcus Scribner) feel differently than their parents and different than each other. The twins, Jack (Miles Brown) and Diane (Marsai Martin), are too young to really understand what is going on, and everyone debates how much they should know. Finally, Dre’s parents (Laurence Fishburne and Jenifer Lewis) have their own opinions from experience and have no problem sharing their views with their family.
During the half hour episode, they will all share their different opinions and listen to everyone else’s ideas on the situation and by the end of the episode they all come together.
It is a very powerful, intense, well-done 30 minutes of television that should not be missed because it shows so many different sides of the same story that we are all talking about. There will be laughs and there will be tears, so be prepared to go through the gamut of emotions.
I will seriously be surprised if this episode is not nominated for an Emmy because it is that incredible.
