During the episode, Dre (Anthony Anderson) and his wife Bo (Tracee Ellis Ross) get into a discussion about police brutality as the family waits to see if a police officer will be indicted for killing a black man who was unarmed.


A lot of people took to Twitter with their thoughts on the episode:

Just watched last night's episode of #blackish. Reminds me of TV in the 70s/80s, when polarizing topics always were addressed.

woke up a little early today to watch last night's episode of #blackish. beautiful. we needed this show so bad, man.

That #Blackish episode dead made me cry. It was too #real

The #Blackish episode re: protest & police violence is powerful, honest, and thoughtfully engages the topic. It's a must see.


...even though there was the aching feeling that something would go wrong.
