Last night ABC debuted its highly buzzed-about sitcom, Black-ish. Starring Anthony Anderson (Law & Order, Guys With Kids) and Tracee Ellis Ross (Girlfriends), the show follows Andre "Dre" Johnson, the patriarch of an upper middle-class black family, as he attempts to raise his kids in a suburban neighborhood (read: white) without having them lose a grip on the richness of their (black) culture.
