Storyline

Dre Johnson (Anthony Anderson) has it all: a great job, beautiful wife Rainbow (Tracee Ellis Ross), four kids, and a big house in a classy neighborhood; but as a Black man, he questions whether all his success has brought too much cultural assimilation for his family. With the help of his father (special guest-star Laurence Fishburne), Dre tries to create a sense of ethnic identity for his family members that will allow them to honor their background while preparing them to embrace the future.

Terrible, just terrible
25 September 2014 | by olasnah-97-475221See all my reviews

I made it only through about 15minutes of this garbage. One cliché after another, the characters hitting on every single stereotypical issue there is, mentioning their blackness, and being black, black black black, etc etc. The main character emphasizing his blackness, acting 'black' by seemingly ignoring the decorum and other mannerisms of the white people in the office like he's special, and then getting upset that he's chosen for a stereotypical black role ('urban' developer or something). I had to wonder, as a white person (and it's not like they didn't heap on one white person stereotype after another), do black people even appreciate this sorta thing? Should they? Bill Cosby was right.....

Anyways, this show is complete racial garbage. An insult to blacks, an insult to other races. I kept asking myself if a black person originated this show, or a white person, because whoever it was, they are either an uneducated boob, or seriously naive.
