ABC’s season 4 of Black-ish took on the issue of vaccines this week. The episode portrayed those who oppose vaccines as instigators of online drama. The scene is set up with Tracee Ellis Ross, who plays the character, Rainbow, discussing vaccines online. Being a doctor, Rainbow tries to make “reasonable” and “gentle” statements regarding vaccines, only to find herself being attacked by anti-vaxxers.
Ironically, her “online attackers” seem to be based in New Jersey, a state that’s embroiled in a war on mandatory vaccination laws.
The episode is another sad example of liberal indoctrination being pushed by mainstream entities. Painting anti-vaxxers as reckless, stupid, and aggressive, all while the pro-vaccine doctor is initially calm, cool, and collected.
