ABC's Blackish on Wednesday night featured a blink-and-you'll-miss-it Sarah Palin joke. In the show, a horrified Anthony Anderson (who plays "Dre" on the show), cringes as his daughter dressed up like the Republican.
"Diane," played by Marsai Martin, exclaimed, "I'm my hero, Sarah Palin. I came within a few votes of the vice presidency. I would have won if not for the liberal gotcha media." Martin can be seen with a familiar red jacket and dark glasses.
Diane and her brother are tasked with making a "living museum of famous Americans."
Earlier in the episode, Anderson's character narrated, "It's been said black people have a double consciousness. We have our mainstream selves to be in the man's world, and we have our down-home selves for the brothers. Some of us handle the switch effortlessly."
As he said this, video of Obama shaking hands, first with a white guy and then an African American, appears onscreen.
