Then there were those who felt like Black-ish failed them and black Republicans:
#BlackIsh is hilarious. *Laughs at Black Republican jokes* *Is Black* *Voted for McCain* *Still has McCain t-shirt*— Elle. (@elle_emm_aitch) May 14, 2015
Calm down, everyone. Junior joined the Young Republicans for a girl. He also added that black girls don’t usually like him but this girl did. When Dre found out Junior was motivated by romance AND that the girl was black, he lightened up on his anti-Republican stance – if only for a day.
they got Junior on Bill Maher. Yooooooo this episode is LIT #Blackish— TJR (@TyFromTheSky) May 14, 2015
After that, Rainbow and Dre met Junior’s new boo Hilary’s parents and quickly butted heads with them over their political views. The best part of the meeting, other than the bacon tarts Dre was obsessed with and the mom infuriating Rainbow for insulting working mothers was seeing guest star Bumper Robinson (Sabrina, The Teenage Witch) play the role of Hilary’s dad. Dre’s bacon analogy was pretty darn funny, too.
In the end, Junior met a new girl – a liberal – and left the Young Republicans. Too funny. Other highlights: Diane’s nickname “Burkel,” Zoe becoming a nerd because of her glasses, Dre and Charlie explaining what an Uncle Tom is to their white coworkers and Bo and Ruby hugging.
