ABC released a promo of for an upcoming episode of Black-ish, premiering March 8.

In a 15-second clip entitled “ToysRn’tUs,” Janine gives Diane a white Girlstory doll for her birthday, and when Bow tries to return it for a black doll, she is shocked by the limited options offered.

“You have hundreds of white dolls and only two black dolls,” says concerned mom Bow.

“African-American,” the saleswoman quips.

Later, Bow proceeds to stage a Black Toys Matter protest.

Also in the episode, Dre blames the lack of representation of African-Americans in the media, but when confronting this systematic problem, he realizes that he has prejudices of his own. Meanwhile, Ruby enlists the help of Junior to be her Spades partner.

Black-ish season 3, episode 17 premieres March 8 on ABC.
