The latest episode of black-ish tackled the thoughts and concerns of America after the presidential election. Like previous episodes that addressed nationwide concerns, black-ish interwove comedy with a serious, life-impacting topic.
The election of Donald Trump brought more negative things to the surface, and now America has a lot to deal with. What do we do? How do we move forward? What should we feel? The episode appropriately titled “Lemons” addressed the latter.
The scenes were rich. They were authentic. And they were emotional. Anthony Anderson delivered a chilling monologue on the Black experience in America. It is arguably the best scene in the show’s history besides the scene with Anderson and his co-star Tracee Ellis Ross discussing Barack Obama’s first inauguration.

Even if you don’t watch the show, this is an episode you have to see. Like Scandal’s episode on police brutality, it is must see television.
