Black-ish is just Jim Crow-ish in white face

We don't have cable TV at our Lakehouse, so last night for the first time I watched "Black-ish." Wow. Most racist program I've ever seen on TV. Main character is wealthy advertising executive. whose wife is a doctor. No matter, all whites on show are bigoted, racist, Jim Crow era stereotypes. And an older black woman (relative?) was old timey superstitious media stereotype from the 1930s. I half expected her to roll her eyes and shuffle out of the room. So I looked it up. "Obama loved it." Some may find this "refreshing," but who watches this? Apparently, a lot of Democrats.
