Raven-Symone

Entertainment tycoon Raven-Symone was criticized harshly when she dared to give her opinion on the term 'African-American,' which was popularized by the Rev. Jesse Jackson and other black leaders in the late 1980s.

"I'm tired of being labeled. I'm an American. I'm not an African-American. I'm an American," said Raven-Symone during a sit-down interview with television Guru Oprah Winfrey.

Raven-Symone should have been applauded for her self-effacing honesty in dismissing a term that was never popular with black people who were born before the 1980s.

The Disney star was slammed by Black Twitter -- a collective of hostile opinionated black millennials on social media.

The 28-year-old Atlanta native responded to the criticism in an email to The Grio.

“I never said I wasn’t black," she wrote. "I want to make that very clear. I said, I am not African-American. I never expected my personal beliefs and comments to spark such emotion in people. I think it is only positive when we can openly discuss race and being labeled in America.”

During her interview with Oprah, Raven-Symone, who is a gold star lesbian, also said she wasn't in favor of being labeled gay.

“I don’t want to be labeled ‘gay,'" she said. “I want to be labeled ‘a human who loves humans.’”

      :newbie: I totally agree with Raven. There are a lot of us here that live in America that are not African American. Just because you are black and live here, that does not mean that you should automatically fall into that bracket. In my opinion, being African American means that you ONLY have roots from Africa, and you live in America. If you are of mixed race, or maybe even have some ancestry from another part of the world, besides Africa guess what, you ARE NOT African American whether or not you want to accept it. I think that the more appropriate term that we should call ourselves is "Black". JMO.

      Raven was like :bite: WAYMENT that didn’t go over like I thought. No but for real I think she is like some where she has transcended into another realm of self-actualization and she did the education. She thought speaking on something personal for herself was just that and didn’t think past that. She lives in a bubble. An idealistic I wanna smash chicks that look like Prince in the face and not be judge by it so I say I am human….. bubble. But yea. Is what it is. What she do she do.

      Sprites call us African American because to them it sounds better than calling us Black. They look at Black as a slur. That is what happens when everybody watch the second half of Malcolm X in school.

      The Native; Latin; Asian; African, Italian, Irish, Scottish etc etc classify themselves with their heritage and America. Especially the first generation ones. They don't want to just be labeled American.

      @User,

      I am all for peoe acknowledging who they are or belueve themselves to be. I think in Raven's case though, possibly part of the issue was that on fresh prince and cosby show, she played a black kid. On her cheetah girls shending, she was perceived as one of us.

      So when she came out and said don't label me African-American, some may have taken offense because she has been identifying with that community (at least on tv) for some time. Maybe for the people who were offended the two terms Black and AA are interchangeable. Now take this with a caveat or two cause I could be wrong. :hug:

      its one of those old school sayings that got carried over like "chinky eyes". the term chink is obviously frowned upon today but we still say chinky eyes without thinking twice.

      :shrugs: yall aint finna let Rae Rae be great but I feel like this is being blown waaaaaay out of proportion.

      Imma go watch her video from back in the day. Thats what little girls are made of :danban: she was getting it :lol:

      I like Raven. Even if she says she's not black, who cares? You know black folks won't let you outta the barrel easily.

      :yawn: That's SEW Raven of her to have her own ideas about her own identity. :shrug:
      It is a bit ironic that Black Twitter was all :woohoo: over her statement when "We" sometimes act offended when "they" try to lump us all together. We're the first to emphatically remind everybody that "The Black Community" is NOT a monolith. So why be mad when an individual states his/her individual preference concerning their personal identity? I'm unbothered by little rich girl Raven and her attempts to un-label herself. :shrug: She has a right to speak 'her truth' (and Black Twitter has the right to tell her FOH!) :gossip: :ha: :yawn:

      @76 that song was produced by missy Elliot, I'm almost sure of it. But cuz of Missy's weight, they didn't have her in the video.

      Well see I'm the Rave-hu, the r-a-v-e-n...she got down on that track.

      I AGREE WITH RAVEN. EDUCATE YOURSELF ON THE TERM AFRICAN AMERICAN BEFORE YOU BURST OUT WITH OPINIONS. Jesse Jackson and NAACP members came up with that name in the 80's. Remember we were Colored then Black to African American.... African's from Africa here with there green card is what you call a "African American"..........
