This show doesn't play it safe
17 January 2019 | by CarsonTrentSee all my reviews

Fantastic episode on the topic of colorism (skin tone prejudice and discrimination) proving once more that this show doesn't play it safe opening yet another Pandora's box. The Johnsons are in turmoil over Diane having the darkest skin tone in the family and we witness each of their personal issues coming from identification with their own skin tone.

In-depth exploration of the ramifications inside the family and society leading to the creation of artificial hierarchies as well as feelings of personal isolation. Unfortunately most of us still define ourselves by differences instead of similarities. The way we cope with agression is to pass it on.

A social ill which doesn't seem likely to disappear in the near future despite the horrendous historical costs and psychological damage to our species as a whole.
