When Carlton Is Rejected by an All-Black Fraternity
When it wrecked us: Season four, episode eight ("Blood Is Thicker Than Mud")
Why it wrecked us: Will and Carlton hope to be initiated into an all-Black fraternity at their college, but the members resent Carlton for his privileged upbringing. They label him as a "sellout," but Carlton refutes such a characterization, saying the way he grew up doesn't make him any less Black. It's a potent exploration of nuanced Black experiences, as well as the hurtful effects of identity degradation.
