“Being Bow-racial” is Black-ish finally addressing the “ish” that looms heavily over its title and the results are stellar.“Being Bow-racial” is an episode that feels incredibly personal to me, which might make it difficult to be objective, but it’s truly a story I’ve never seen given such attention on broadcast TV.She was raised in New York but went away to college at Northeastern University.Although she grew up in a predominantly black and latino community she said she always had friends of all races.Why would Bow—an educated, wealthy, tolerant doctor—care that her son is dating a white girl?But, in reality, the episode addresses some of the most guarded, internal secrets within the black community—colorism, interracial dating, the black man’s fear of white women, and everyone’s fear of black women.The second Junior introduced Megan, I found myself making the same face as Bow for the same reasons—she’s white.This isn’t because Bow and I are racists, in fact, the episode does an amazing job of pointing out that Bow’s issue is an internal issue that stems from her own conflicting feelings and uncertainty around her blackness.
