Police brutality isn’t standard sitcom fare.

Nor is it treated as such in Wednesday’s episode of ABC comedy Black-ish (9:30 p.m. ET/PT), which centers on an affluent African-American family living in a mostly white neighborhood.

The episode, titled “Hope,” doesn’t chase headlines so much as it explores how parents often struggle to talk to their kids about life’s thornier issues — in this case, a fictional news story about an unarmed black teenager selling DVDs who is tased dozens of times by a cop.
