Laurence Fishburne Defines “Black-ish” In Reference To Justin Bieber

It’s been a while since Justin Bieber toured or released a new album, but the singer always seems to be on our minds. In explaining the title of his new sitcom Black-ish, Laurence Fishburne dropped a little Bieber reference to get the tricky racial point across.

“I think of it this way — two words: Justin Bieber,” Fishburne says. “Justin Bieber acts ‘black-ish,’ but he doesn’t get shot by the police. He gets a police escort home.”

Hosts Whoopi Goldberg and Rosie Perez had asked the executive producer about the message of the new show, which follows an upper-middle class black family. He did go on to expand his “black-ish” definition:

“If you like rock and roll, if you like rhythm and blues, if you like jazz, if you like hip-hop, you might be black-ish.”

What the hell is Rosie so nervous for? The truth is the truth.
