    YOU have to see it. It is the best commentary (with all sides) of the Trump election. It is outstanding.
    COnservatives and libs will all see themselves in it. It hits every single issue about the election.
    While being damned funny.

        I never watch it but the old lady said "stay up you dont have to get up early." Every cliche about the election was hit. And lots of it funny as hell, The jokes were so fast I miss some now with my hearing I guess. The mother is actually Diana Ross's daughter my wife says,

          They do a good job with this kind of stuff. I've been pleasantly surprised at this show whenever I've watched it. The Disney show was hilarious.

          I find its title to be racist, and I don't watch comedy so I won't be watching. I can decide such from the facts, I don't need a spin especially a comedic spin.

            Perhaps because you pay attention to my posts? Now I do watch some like the big bang theory.

              I do as well & take offense by it.

              I can only imagine how a show on BET called "Whitish", that made fun of how white people had to "deal with" issues over black people, would be received.

                  Traditionally, -ish means of a sort. Like yellowish is not really yellow but kinda yellow.

                  "ish" is used in the black community as a euphemism for :kiffin:

                  For example "getting lotta ish at work lately"

                  So the title is a twist and an inside joke.

                  They're saying it's about black **** (black people stuff) but with a wink and a nod.

                  Alex.

                  I've never watched the show, but Anthony Anderson is an extremely underrated talent as an actor and comedian.

                  Are you actually trying to put forth that I'm a racist because I don't watch that show & take issue with the name & its' implied connotation?
