Summary via Wikipedia:

"Jackie objects to Bev spending so much time at the house and is and baffled that Fred enjoys her company. D.J. refuses to kiss a girl named Gina for a school play. Roseanne, believing D.J. is being forced to do something he is uncomfortable with, meets with his teacher. She tells Roseanne that D.J. will not kiss Gina because she is black. Roseanne confronts D.J. and tells him he has to kiss her.

"When he refuses, Dan supports his decision. After an argument with Chuck (James Pickens, Jr.), Dan questions his own bigotry and tells D.J. he has to kiss Gina. Roseanne confronts her own bigotry when a man comes to the Lunchbox at closing time. Roseanne refuses to let him in until he identifies himself as Gina's father. He angrily confronts Roseanne, and leaves her wondering if she feared letting him because he was a man or because he was black."
