Dre From 'Black-Ish' Taking On The Real Issues

The greatest thing about 'Black-ish' is how it constantly is taking on real issues (and even makes fun of them on occasion). 

In honor of Anthony Anderson's birthday, we revisit some of his best moments as Dre where he encounters racial issues, political issues, and legal issues that plague the Black Community, but also makes it entertaining for the audience, while learning a thing or two on the way.

 

Response To Police Brutality

Dre Gets Pulled Over - black-ish

Dre (Anthony Anderson) has to decide how to handle getting pulled over by the police in 2016. black-ish - Subscribe: http://goo.gl/mo7HqT

When being pulled over in a car, with a "passed out white woman" whom the car belongs to, Dre is faced with different scenarios on how to respond to the cop. Though this is a very hard topic considering all of the police offers that have shot Black drivers, this drives the point home while still making it comical.

Dre's Lesson On Judicial System - black-ish

Talking about how the legal system has worked against black people for ages, even with visual representation.

 

"Snowflake In An Elevator"

Black-ish Little Girl in Elevator Scene

Blackish S03E04 Dre meets little white girl in elevator scene.

When people are prejudice against black people, they tend to see them as a threat no matter what. So when Dre is confronted by a little white girl crying in an elevator, he justifies why he didn't try to help her.

The N Word

Dre Debates The Word at Work - black-ish

The team at Stevens & Lido has an important discussion. Watch a scene from black-ish - Season 2, Episode 2: "The Word." Subscribe: http://goo.gl/mo7HqT

When discussing the "N Word," they are in mixed company, and when the older white man in the room says he misses the word "colored," all hell breaks loose.

Junior Is A Republican

All the resaons to watch Black-ish, in one opening scene.

All the resaons to watch Black-ish, in one opening scene. Republican, banna republic, notary republic, IRA, publican. "So, if you've got to take down a couple of fish & chip shops to be free of British rule"...

When Dre's son reveals he joined a Young Republicans Club at school, he proceeds to spiral downhill, not offering his son lunch because it would be considered "a handout" by Republicans, and then he must make Bow understand why this is such an upsetting ordeal.

 

Happy Birthday Anthony!
