Does 'Black-ish' Have a Gay Problem?

ABC’s Black-ish has been hailed by some as a stereotype challenging success, focusing as it does on an upper middle class black family. But while the show may have a deft hand when it comes to race, its second episode left some worrying that the show is not so careful when it comes to LGBT issues.
