This show is so funny. It pokes fun at all kinds of racist tropes, and refreshingly, is from the point of view of a Black family. Far from racist "against white people," it is a great privilege for white viewers to be a "fly on the wall" inside the home of a loving, active Black family trying to negotiate life with the extra burden of racism/extra pride of being Black and beautiful. If you enjoy "The Sopranos" or "The Golden Girls" without being Italian or Mafia or a senior, you will appreciate black-ish. An extra bonus is some amazing music videos and animation done for some of the most imaginative TV around!

This is an awesome show it truly connects the complexity of being AA and successful to the sterotypes and stigmas held by both individuals of African descent and mainstream society. I connect with the Johnson Family's struggle as I attempt to walk that fine line of acceptance depicted by this show. BTW, the show is not meant to discredit AA achievements nor spur racial criticism, but rather to educate and bring attention to all, the reality of the AA campaign for acceptance.
