ABC is the first major television network to recognize mixed-race people in a new "black-ish" spinoff entitled "mixed-ish".

Mixed-race people have long been identified only as Black in America, regardless of their multi-racial parents. Most people continue to cling to the archaic one-drop rule as an excuse to ignore mixed-race people as a unique race onto their own.

According to TVline.com, mixed-ish is a 1980s spinoff that focuses on a young version of Tracee Ellis Ross' character Bow.

The spinoff follows Bow (played by newcomer Arica Himmel) and other mixed race children who are described as emotionally and intellectually brilliant. Despite their intellectual abilities, the mixed-race children are socially awkward and often face peer rejection in school.

mixed-ish also stars The Haves and the Have Nots' Tika Sumpter as Bow's mom. The Champions' Anders Holm, who played her Caucasian dad in the pilot, will be recast for the series. According to TVline.com, producers decided to take his character in a different direction.

ABC announced black-ish has been renewed for Season 6, while Yara Shahidi's grown-ish is graduating to Season 3.

    Lol.

    Ummmm..........

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I think white people might like this. Maybe...Idk.

    The irony of Tika being cast as the mother.

  • CardiB’sAbs

    Not interested. But Maybe this will give me some insignt into why every mixed person I know (including my mama and her siblings) are crazy as shit. ?

  • Tlowe89

    I saw this long as$ trailer the other day on social media and it seemed boring asf. Grownish is already slick boring, they just need to kept black-ish and that’s it

  • MJF

    LOL!

  • Tlowe89

    Yea and when you watch black-ish and the mom makes appearance she and extremely fair skinned black woman ?

  • Renee26

    Sigh.... Ok whateves. If it's the same writers I'll watch. I like both of the other shows

  • NewNew
  • Renee26

    Maybe Ayesha was plugging this show in her interview ?

  • Kayke

    They aren’t “a race all by themselves”
    Some biracials are black and some are yt, it simply depends on what’s in the DNA.

    Lol!

    Enjoy!

  • jwoo250

    Of course Tika would want to play that role. She don't want nothing to do with a black man...lol She probably begged for the role. She like my sister in law. My in law will only date a white man. My sister in law would of had a stroke if her child came out with black features. Well she's African and got her way. Her son came out with shiny curly hair and bright yellow like she wanted him too. Also, in the UK most African people only date white people from what I'm told all my husband family dates white woman over there and have mixed kids.

    My sister in law also tells her son he's white. Even her white husband said he was white. I said no he's not he's black too. And in America he ain't getting no pass cause you can tell he's not white. But honestly I'm tired of the ish franchise.

    And I don't think mixed kids have it all that bad at all. They want to make it like they have it so bad being mixed race. I'm mixed race and I have never had an issue.

  • A.P. Millz-CT

    *heavy eye roll*

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    I cringed when they dropped "Black-ish" but now it's one of my favorite shows. The show and believe their story lines are on point, not sugar coated and progressive. At the end of the day inter-racial children deserve to see more specific representation of themselves on TV. I'm looking forward to the content and the discussions it may open.

  • Bossy704

    Wow. The young Black people have created a new race for themselves. They will be treated as any other Black person so they should at least read up on what to expect.

  • SingleGalCrazyWorld

    Sandra you can talk about this but what about that movie coming out called Looqueesha??? That trailer is triggering me but idk if I should be offended or not smh....

  • Soda

    I'm surprised it took them this long to make it. I thought they'd make one to respond to White Girls when it was released.

  • T Willis

    Interesting...

  • Marlika

    I never watched Blackish and I’m not watching this ish. I hope it gets canceled ?????

    Omg. I saw this n thought it was a joke. I keep telling folks biracial is not a race. They see you n walk BY your behind n ignore you. That is why biracial folks complain about constantly being ignored by their various races.

  • Soda

    Anthony Anderson's character got on my nerves. He has everything in life yet he's always angry. His parents were the best part of the show to me.

  • MsPam

    Say it again! Good morning y’all!

  • KcoolMuziq

    Tika(whom I met for the first time at the 5Oth Annual NAACP Awards) is just as beautiful in person as she is on screen.

  • MsSapphire9800

    Of course it would get a green light...come from Ms Tracee Ross...she has a black mother white father and she gay...this is what the world need now!!!

  • Rayne

  • Alextra Ballard

    I won’t be watching

  • Hazel

    This is ridiculous! The problem is that some 'mixed' people WANT to be viewed as special and they aren't! Then, they get mad when people don't gawk at their light skin, light eyes, and straight hair, and claim they are being excluded. And, how do you categorize blacks that have these features, but have 2 black parents? Some of them whine about the same so-called exclusion. My kids look mixed; light eyes/'good hair' because their dad is mixed and I have light eyes...if they ever came to me with this mess, I'd flip.

  • hottlanta

    The part where the dark skinned person ask them what was they mixed with got me 2 thinking that if u r dark skinned u aint mixed with nothing. But if u r light skin u r
    are. That is a stéréotype right there. Mom is dark n the kids r not her color

  • MsSapphire9800

    I have never watched neither one of those ...ish shows. Definitely not watching Mixed-ish.

  • Miss K

    They had a fair skinned woman playing Rainbow's mother on Black-ish, so how did they come up Tika Sumpter playing her mother.

    And I much rather see Dre growing up in Compton then Rainbow growing up, plus I rather see Junior going to Howard University, then Zoey going to college.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    Wow...i'm reading the comments and i have to be honest and say, that i am shocked that so many roses are experiencing an adverse reaction within this post. Especially from specific Roses whose content i typically find eye opening and progressive.

  • PLEASEDontTellMe

    yes she is. My homeboy used to live in the same building as her in NY, during her modeling years. And she is indeed stunning. The camera rarely does her justice.

    My nephew can watch and the other three mixed kids in my family.

  • IMNXTC

    Why all the hate? I am a mixed race individual and telling me how or what I should identify as is as crazy as Trump telling people how they should live their lives. Unless you have walked in my shoes then you should mind yours. I don’t tell people who or what they should be. That old colonialism, or shall I say backward thinking mentally is holding the human race back collectively.

    Grabs popcorn and waits for the mixed people to come in here telling stories about how hard their life was. How all the ugly dark skin girls with nappy hair made fun of them because they were pretty. https://media0.giphy.com/media/XQq8UMo254P16/giphy.gif

    Let mixed ppl have their own show.... who cares ? I don’t.

    Goodt morning!!Happy Friday!!

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lol. I didn't even see her post before I posted mine. Their stories are so entertaining to me.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I completely forgot about that. Her mom on Black-ish actually looks biracial.

  • Topic Influencer

    I dont see the issue either. Hell its Asian shows. Hispanics got their own shows and channels and whatnot. If you hate the idea of it dont damn it watch? Its not hard

  • Nik

    I use Seamless. They are pimping the hail out of me.

  • Hazel

    Black people of ALL shades should care. This show is celebrating the issue of colorism in the black community; the bain of our existence.

  • EasyBreezy

    Wayment. Let me check this out....

  • MsSapphire9800

    Come on...Tracee has been on the scene for 20+ years...attended every award show...public cermonies...etc. and you have never seen her with a man...not even as an escort...I put her & Jahiem in the same category.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    How is it celebrating colorism? Genuine question...haven't thought about it from this perspective.

  • EasyBreezy

    "...with heavy color eye makeup, including long, thick, obnoxious lashes and boyish-looking brows!

  • Renee26

    ? girl!!! I used to talk to this guy that thought like that...talkin about when they walk in the door all eyes are on them and men give them all the attention which makes darker girls bitter.

    I told him that was hilarious because I turn heads when I walk in the door with my brown skin and nappy hair. I welcome the stairs with a smile... It's charisma that turns heads baby! Some ignorant folks label me as "Hollywood" but I'm hella down to earth

    Sorry! LOL!! :-) :-)

  • Karen Brady

    Right. I don't get him. Angry at home , angry at work, angry with the neighbor.. Too much angry.. lol.. I love his mama.

  • Nik

    I guess it depends on the era and city. I lived in an all black town on Long Island in the 70s and 80s. Never ever saw it. I would hear about people having "good hair", or being excited about having a light skinned crush and what not, but all of the mixed people I knew blended in with no problems.

  • Renee26

    True.... Everyone has mixed ancestry. There's no single ethnicity people remaining on this earth.

    Some folks just want to be singled out as different. As I'm reading the comments it seems like a superiority complex because people are "jealous" or "hating" on them for not being easily identifiable as a particular race ?

  • MissyJ

    ABC pissing me off with all these spinoffs but didn't bring the Sue Heck spinoff to series.. Nobody asked for this.. and how TIka gon play Bow mama, when Bow mama is light skinned on Blackish?? Make it make sense ABC

  • Coy little wink

    Girrrrlll. Exactly what is their distinction? Most of us are mixed. I know this without taking or reading a DNA test...

    Race is all about skin color that is what people see and judge each other by. Let's just keep it real...

  • Renee26

    And colorism isn't going anywhere

  • Renee26

    Yaaaas!! I looove my tanned skin. I get darker with a hint of red tones... I don't run from the sun at all

  • tamtvfan

    Yes!!!! Dre is so annoying. HIs downtalking to the son Junior almost made me quit watching. And he does come across as angry in most of the episodes.

  • hottlanta

    Asians dont have shows where your eyes arent slanted like my eyes u r not asian. All races do it but l am sick of the black stéréotype it is always about the lighter skin n so called good hair with black folks. How bout a show that show folks like me who r confortable in their skin n dont give a dayum.

  • Nik

    I believe worse. Back in the day there was colorism but also more unity because we were fresh out of the Jim Crow Era. Now instead of allegiance to the red, black, and green it's just to the green.

  • Klassy 1

    This is one ish I won't be watching!

  • hottlanta

    Sandy been giving us a lot of broken branches stumps n twigs with that wood. I havent seen a sturdy oak tree in a long time.

  • T Willis

    I would prefer those spinoffs too.

  • sjames

    mixed isn't a race and mixed ppl don't only identify with being black bc "mixed" also consists of: asian-white, latin-asian, black-white, brazilian-italian, etc etc. this is truly annoying. this the one time i wished the name was different. and unless this show consists of multiple mixed-raced perspectives from other "mixed" characters with other mixed heritage, who really cares about the plot of Rainbow?? esp when a lot of mixed black and white ppl actually don't experience that whole "you have to choose" mentality growing up

  • sjames

    exactly and i know plenty of darker hued men and women who are of direct mixed heritage/ethnicity. this show will only be a success if they have adjacent story lines that portray the other points of views on the spectrum. showing only the light-skinned "mixed experience" will cause further division to those who look like Tatiana Ali or Jeremy Suarez

  • Look@m3

    Chile, I think not! I saw her at Tyler Perry studios when I was attempting to be an add in and I watched as all of the cast interact and be so sweet to everyone. No one was asking for autographs as they walked pass but she was the only one (and Jeffrey slightly) that gave off the impression that they were the crème de la crème. I just watched from the back....every since that day I just cant do here. I was rooting for this black sista but she meh to me since I saw that snootiness!

    Nevertheless, she is a nice looking woman!

  • Nik

    I was seriously a fan. I used her memes all the time.

  • Nik

    That's unfortunate. I've met one of my FORMER tennis idols through my then coach and she was rrrrrrrude. You would think that because we had a coach in common and we all were "skinfolk" that she'd be pleasant. She acted like she was doing me a favor even looking my way.

  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    I'm giving this a hard side-eye.

  • Scorpio

    I'm cracking up at this comment, so true with the mother on Black-ish is light mixed looking and now they using Tika. Make it make sense. LOL! I admit I did laugh at the you look a a runaway house slave from the aunt in the trailer.

    Um, I recall many years ago that she was dating Akon's younger brother, so maybe she's bi?

    Yaaass!! It was supposed to be Sue in the City. She was living in the Chi post college but pre marrying the Donahue boy... We were so looking forward to it

  • T Willis

    I’ll watch it. I hope the writers use the show as a vehicle to have an open discussion on colorism. After yesterday’s post, a few things stuck out to me in the comments section: ignorance. We have no idea who we are and how our actions are being perceived. And when you try to shed light on observed behavior, how it’s being perceived and why, it’s met with irrational hostility. It’s almost impossible to have an open conversation with black folks and their behavior. And it’s like we’re at a standstill on every important issue: Colorism, illegitimacy, upward mobility, and elitism. ?????
    Maybe the show will improve things.. ?????

  • Scorpio

    And actually it's not really races, ethnicity, yes. There's really no such thing as races, only the human race. Different races, were constructed out of racist divisions, socially constructed to privilege some and oppress others.

  • Look@m3

    I dont know why these celebs act like this!

  • DeepThinker

    Just another way to distinguish us from each other. House or slave to appease massa for wt acceptance that is until you are throwing out trash and get approached by the police.

    I have no problem with a show about the angst or joy of growing up “mixed!” Everyone has a backstory!

    No matter how SOME mixed individuals want to be declared an ethnicity other than black, it won’t happen because we were still Jim Crow (separate but equal) in the 1960’s!

    Racism is too embedded in our dominant culture for this show to change biased, ignorant views, as Jordyn Woods learned the hard way!

    Colorism affects whites with blondes vs brunettes, Asians, and Latinos/Hispanics!

    Agreed with the exception that Jim Crow one drop rule mentality won't be eradicated. Biracial, Multiracial, Mixed Race are making serious strides in securing identity distinction.

    I agree that the Jim Crow one drop rule will never be eradicated!

    They are being acknowledged by advertisers, not just by hair product companies; you see many commercials including mixed or multiracial individuals, kids, families or couples!

    They have always received preferential treatment and are making strides!

    But, at the end of the day, they will be seen as black, and treated badly or deadly in any random situation where race is an issue!

  • Rhyme and Reason

    Tika Sumpter is the right actress to play the mom!

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Very beautiful , but She dont fuck with black men tho so fuck anyone that don’t fuck with their won kind . She threw that pussy at that broke white boy with the quickness . No shocker she’s in this bullshit show

  • Hazel

    It is celebrating colorism by differentiating light skin blacks from dark skin blacks with a TV show. As if to say 'sorry mulattos for lumping you in with black-ish. Here is your own show to highlight how different you are from negros'.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Same here , news to me, she was fucking with Akon brother , saw at the airport once.

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Likewise , I gave blackish a chance , my ex pretentious girl watched the show, wasn’t for me although I got the message being portrayed. The show has always been forced to me and it didn’t become a hit until like the 3rd season . I just wish more black shows got this treatment.

  • Logan Roberts

    Sounds Dumb-ish ?

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    Apparently majority of the comments agree with me , so you seem to be in the minority. Tell us the real reason you’re triggered, are you mixed ? Also You may want to make your Disquis comments private , because your daily comments are bit exactly comforting. I tell the truth , please explain what you considered hate from my comment and explain without pandering or slander if you’re capable of that.

    'It's almost impossible to have an open conversation with black folks and THEIR behavior'

  • Rent em Spoons ?????????

    To be honest there is no such thing as a mixed black person . The original man was black and from Africa and the oldest found fossil was a black woman .

  • Renee26

    True about the origins... I know all about Lucy. Maybe there's still some Africans that don't have tainted blood lines... Majority of us have mixed with other ethnicities along our lines of ancestors.

    In my own personal opinion, I think mixed people are beautiful in their own unique way. If I was a mixed girl the world would get the middle finger and a good azz 2 kiss.

  • Star

    There is the other side where the mass media is using this show to promote their hidden agenda. I don’t know if anyone has noticed but in most commercials these days you rarely see a blk woman cast with a blk man it’s all white women with mixed kids. It’s really not that many blk men to go around due to mass incarceration and mass murders but the media continues to promote interracial couples like it’s the second coming to the point blk men won’t even consider a blk woman these days. If they want interracial couples why not show white women with Asian or Hispanic men? This promotion is deliberate and most men fall victim to the promotion

    What next? A show called "Passing?" Now, that would be a controversial program. White people like to think they know who is "white" and who isn't, but there are people like me everywhere.

    I just saw this on TMZ TV. So sad!!! Those memes of hers gave me life. My god-daughter lost her cat to the same illness. RIP sweet kitty.

    These white women are determined to separate their biracial children from us regular black folk. They're a bunch of Kartrashians.

    But Black-ish was already “Mixed-ish” Look at the characters of Black-ish, majority of them are mixed. The trailer looks dry and lame. Black people need to let mixed people fight their own fight. Stop trying to claim everyone.

  • Applebum

    Yes it’s getting out of control. Even the newscasters, always a white woman with a black man. There was one ad I seen recently, I saved it. I wished I could upload on here. The ad was a clothing brand, it had a rugged looking black dude sitting on a bench with a red-haired white little boy with freckles sitting on his lap. The black dude had a weird grin on his face. It was so awkward looking. It was very disturbing, I had to save it. I have never seen an add like this. There’s another one I seen, a commercial where 2 white women are well dressed and dancing and they have a black man dancing along with them. Another clothing ad. It’s crazy.

    I agree with you. I wish could post it. I have tried to start a movement on social media where blk women don’t shop where our images are not seen. The truth of the matter is that blk women have the buying power bc we have careers so who are they catering to with these commercials? If I don’t see images of myself then you are not trying to sell to me.

    This sounds so good. I’ll check it out.

  • CocoBabe88

    You need someone to tell you whether to be offended or not?? Lol wtf. If you’re not offended then it isn’t offensive lol.

  • TheWildChild

    Wasn't "Grownish" a borderline flop ??

  • rockstar2142

    I’m happy that more mixed families are being shown. We’re here & we deserve to be represented. I love that my daughter will grow up to see more families like hers.

  • rockstar2142

    Preach girl??

  • rockstar2142

    I’m here for it!!

  • Star

    I didn’t say that families shouldn’t be represented. There are media motives behind these shows. Research it if you’d like. Most people are mixed with another race there are vary few people that are pure, especially within the African American community because of slavery.

  • rockstar2142

    I only date white men to. But I’ve always been more attracted to them. But I don’t believe in just claiming one race. My daughter is both & will be raised as such.

    Interesting... I like that it's a flash back to her past. It's different and I think it could work. Don't really watch any of the shows as I'm based in England so on channel 4 or E4 they show some Black-ish but not in any particular order.

  • Sistergirl

    Yep, I met a woman who referred to the features as soft!!!!!

  • Sistergirl

    I see an agenda

  • Sistergirl

    Hell, even Africans are mixed too, not just white and black but different nomadic tribes that travelled mixed with other tribes and the differences are very distinct. There is more of a difference between two African tribes than mixing white and black. Go figure....

    Dayum white women want to change the rules. So when a black woman had a baby by a white man their kids had to be black.. Yet they have no problem getting scholarships and things meant for black people when its an advantage or something that can be gained.

  • EMILY POST

    WOW ... I have some "RACE" show title names for ABC and Hollywoods use of Race ...
    - Black when its convenient
    - No one considers me White
    - Raceless when accepted, black when rejected
    - Racially Ambiguous so I can beat the black person out for the role
    - call me anything but Black
    - But I am not Black
    - Light enough to pass for anything but black

    Advertisements even more than showing black men with white women are showing black women with white men. Same agenda that you pointed out though. I am a white man married to a black woman, but still find this disgusting. Some white people are catching on to the fact that they are otw off the face of the Earth. The so called white race has been preserved up to this point by systematic white supremacy (because in a natural setting, generically, white skin is a recessive trait), but even this is only slowing down the inevitable. So they figure the next best thing is to take a page out of the Spanish conquistadors playbook and create a race of mulattoes that will be raised with a Caucasian mind despite their appearance. This is also why many of them are now gladly offering their white women to black men. The Honorable Elijah Muhammad predicted this back in the 60s. Dr. Frances Cress Welsing also explained alot of this in her teachings. Wake up everyone, none of this on tv is accidental, coincidental, or harmless.

  • Smac

    What they've been trying to do and succeeding at it for centuries. Come up with other ways to divide all non white people to make them feel like minorities and make white seem like the norm/majority when it couldn't be further from the truth.

  • Tbone

    This is the white womans problem. Had she stood up and told her husband (the master)that she was having a baby with the (slave) (Mandingo) we probably wouldnt have all of this hate toward skin tones. Yes the white woman caused, and is still causing the death of the black man. Hence the spring of white hate groups. Police killing any black man they can . The hatred is colonized in the (White man's mind) just as it is in the (Black man's mind. Oh and the (Mulattos)mixed children will have no more of an advantage. .if anything it will be confusing and hurtful. But I can understand what you are saying . ..and yes the media is perpetuating this , not blaming them . But I do say "why is always a white man with a black woman" But I got it she is the Queen Bee always producing and can replenish the entire world. ME ??????????

  • Smac

    You aren't necessarily saying anything that is not true, but I think, respectfully, that you may have missed my point. Race is by all means a social construct. People with melanin are the original people and the norm. Lack of melanin is essentially a birth defect. The so called white race was created either by people with this birth defect being shunned by others and forced to reproduce with others with the same defect, or it was viewed as something that made them special and they chose to reproduce with others with the same defect, or as the Nation of Islam teaches Dr.Yakub bred the race to cause discord. Whatever the case may be, it's a recessive gene. In a natural setting, meaning no racism, no lies about white supremacy, no laws of segregation, etc, etc...so called white people would have been gone off the face of the Earth by now. But even with these constructs in place, scientists know that within the next few hundred years, this will happen anyways. So some white people have resigned to that fact and moved on to plan b, keeping the devil mindset alive even though the population is "browning". There are lots of mixed race children that are being raised completely by the white side of their families. If these children reproduce with whites or with other mixed race people, they will in effect slow down the genetic disappearance of whites and they will have a Caucasian mindset despite having darker skin tones.
    I'm just explaining their agenda, not saying it's going to work. God's plan will eventually win out, the devil was given respite to do his thing on Earth, but that time is almost up! That's why these crackers are scared and voted Trump in and are acting more and more violently, and trying to bring back Jim Crowe.

  • Tbone

    I really understand .

  • Tbone

    Having read your opinion.... It makes me sad. But look at the ways they have destroyed a race of people... For their interest.
