  • -Anthony, thanks again for coming on the show.

  • Tomorrow is election day.

  • This is -- I feel like this is the week

  • everyone's like, "Can the week just go away?"

  • -Mm-hmm, mm-hmm. -But it's election day.

  • You got to get out and vote. I know you've been using

  • your platform to encourage everyone to vote.

  • What are your thoughts as we near the end of this election?

  • -You know, we all need to get out and vote.

  • My thoughts are hopefully

  • if everything goes according to plan,

  • we will have a 46th president

  • by the name of Joe Biden

  • and a vice president by the name of Kamala Harris.

  • But let's take this time to encourage people

  • to get out and vote,

  • no matter what your party affiliation is,

  • You cannot complain if you do not go to the polls.

  • -Yeah. -You can't.

  • You know, so go out there, exercise your right to vote

  • because that is our power.

  • That is our power of a democracy

  • and of the people of the United States of America.

  • So please go out and vote.

  • -Now you've actually been an activist

  • since you were in college.

  • Tell us about that.

  • -Yeah, man, I went to Howard University.

  • My first bit of activism came when we took over

  • the administration building as a freshman.

  • There was a Klan rally in Washington, D.C.,

  • a Klan march that I went out to protest.

  • A peaceful protest.

  • But found myself on the wrong side of nine police batons.

  • -Ooh. -You know.

  • I probably said something in the moment.

  • But it was my First Amendment right

  • to say what I wanted to say.

  • And so I've been in these streets for a while

  • protesting for what I feel is right

  • not only for me as an African-American male

  • in this country, but for the community

  • and for the people at large.

  • So this is nothing that's new to me.

  • It's been 30-plus years for that.

  • I wear my wounds.

  • I still have a couple of scars and scrapes

  • from that afternoon as an 18-year-old,

  • but I'm proud of them.

  • I get to sit and tell these stories with my children

  • and people like you who listen.

  • -Gee, I never knew that story.

  • Good for you for protesting,

  • but gosh, it's a peaceful protest --

  • it's like...

  • I hope everything just stays peaceful.

  • -I hope so too, but, you know,

  • a change soon come. -Yeah.

  • I want to talk about the new season of "Black-ish."

  • Congrats, it is your seventh season,

  • and the network just asked you to do some additional episodes

  • for this season.

  • -Yeah, you know, ABC and Disney are really supporting our show.

  • You know, they had originally had us coming on in the spring,

  • but we all felt that the optics of that

  • would be as if our voices are being muted.

  • And our voices needed to be amplified

  • even more so during this time...

  • -Yeah. -...so here we are.

  • -Yeah. You do a great job of balancing all that, by the way.

  • 'Cause the episodes,

  • we've talked about it before, you had --

  • I mean, some of them are just serious.

  • But you always do something funny in there somewhere.

  • So it's entertaining, but also very topical...

  • -Yeah. -...and very informative.

  • And you do everything. It's really a well-done show.

  • -We've got to get you on the show man, man.

  • We've had The Roots on as animated characters.

  • Why couldn't Jimmy come on down here?

  • Why couldn't we have Fallon on the show?

  • -I would love to do that, come on. Kenya!

  • -All right, I'm going to make a phone call

  • and see what we can do.

  • -I want to show a clip. Here's Anthony Anderson

  • in this Wednesday's episode of "Black-ish."

  • Take a look.

  • -Oh. You missed a place setting.

  • -No I didn't. -Yeah, you did.

  • -Uh-uh. Revolutionaries, they sit at the counter.

  • Can you believe Junior called me "the man"?

  • I registered voters in Compton,

  • I protested the LAPD after Rodney King,

  • and I went to the Million Man March.

  • -You didn't go to the Million Man March.

  • -I would have went had I not sprained my ankle.

  • -Ah.

  • -Anthony Anderson, everybody.

  • Catch "Black-ish" Wednesdays at 9:30 on ABC.

  • I love you, buddy. Thanks so much for coming on.

  • And stay safe. -Hey, I love you too, Jimmy.

  • Thanks for having me. Mama, I love you!

  • -I love you too, Ma.

-Anthony, thanks again for coming on the show.
