Black-ish digs into race, America, stereotyping, interracial dating, class, family, and generational issues, usually with more sophistication than you'd expect from a network sitcom.

The work that Black-ish is doing is so incredibly important.

Anyone who has watched previous seasons knows that when it comes to discussing race and politics, the writers don't play it safe, no matter how uncomfortable some people may feel. This first episode proves this season will be no different.

To put it plainly, last night's black-ish was lit. It was a full-on celebration of Black history and culture. It's going to be a hard act (literally) to follow for the rest of the season.
