Sitcom ‘Black-ish: Black people can’t be Republicans

If you haven’t heard of the sitcom on ABC ‘Black-ish, you haven’t missed anything. It’s the Leftist attempt at The Cosby Show, with a heavy dose of political correctness.

As ABC has on its website promoting the show:

Andre ‘Dre’ Johnson (Anthony Anderson) has a great job, a beautiful wife, Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross), four kids and a colonial home in the ‘burbs.  But has success brought too much assimilation for this black family? With a little help from his dad (Laurence Fishburne), Dre sets out to establish a sense of cultural identity for his family that honors their past while embracing the future.

black-ish stars Anthony Anderson as Dre, Tracee Ellis Ross as Rainbow, Yara Shahidi as Zoey, Marcus Scribner as Andre Jr., Miles Brown as Jack, Marsai Martin as Diane and Laurence Fishburne as Pops.

In this episode, we learn that black people can’t be Republicans.


Dre’s son declares that he’s a Republican, and with no logical reason (and some of the worst acting I’ve seen in a while) the father and mother flip out. Later, the grandmother flips out. Because “black people are supposed to vote Democrat.”

You would have thought their son said he was a devil-worshiper, or wished he was white.

It gets worse…

The next morning as the kids were on their way to school, father give lunch bags to all kids except the “Republican”. The reason the young Republican did’t get lunch is Dre didn’t want to offend his child with a “handout,” and thought he should “pull himself up by his boot straps”.

The handouts only go to the kids who toe the line.

“Think like your ignorant parents, and you will get fed!”

And you can bet the entire episode is filled with ignorant fallacies about conservatives.
