Fix It Jesus: Raven-Symone “I’m Not African American And Don’t Call Me Gay”
Oprah warns Raven Symone not to set Twitter on fire, she promptly sets Twitter on fire. First off, I don't think Raven Samone, is weird as some or labeling her. She has done quite well for herself, considering she grew up in the spotlight.
I agree, it would be nice to be looked at just as a person. Just because someone says you are African-American does not mean you are personal from Africa. My understanding of the label African American is somewhat different and it has a different meaning to me. It means our ancestor somewhere down the line was a descendent of Africa through the slave trade. Another point is that not all Africans are dark skinned, and if you are gay that's your business, but don't deny it, and call it something else.
