We love what Kenya Barris has done with “Black-Ish.” The Johnsons are always clear that their experience is one that they freely acknowledge as privileged, however, all the generations of Johnsons still have to address brushes with racism and ignorance. As much as Dre and Bow try to shield the kids, even their expensive home and neighborhood can’t protect them from the world we live in. We’ve watched The Johnsons live through quarantine, talk to their kids about police brutality and even explore the nuances of the N-word. Whether it’s been Junior, Zoe, Jack, Diane or the adults, the show has given us the opportunity to discuss some really important issues!
We also love that the Johnsons live in a multi-generational household where their grandparents Pops and Ruby are also always on hand to chime in about their own experiences. We also love that the family still holds on to cultural traditions — despite their upper-middle-class status. What are some of the traditions that you’d want your kids to carry on regardless of their financial status in life?
