Last night Black-ish took on a real conversation for viewers as they addressed police brutality, and the black lives matter movement. The series got even more serious when Anthony Anderson shared the importance of his children looking at things more realistically than hope.
One scene, however, earned Anthony Anderson a special round of digital handclaps. Portraying Dre’s opposition to Bow’s goal to instill “hope” into their children, Anderson delivers a stirring monologue in regards to President Barack Obama’s election. Recalling his fear that his hope in an evolved America would be tragically “snatched,” the actor brought a unfortunate sentiment to national television.
