Raven Symone recently sat for an interview with Oprah, during which she said, “I’m in an amazing, happy relationship with my partner, who is a woman.”

The 28 year old former Disney star went on to say that she’s an American and not an African American.

Here’s what she told Oprah about being labeled as a African American:

“I’m an American. I’m not an African-American; I’m an American.

I mean, I don’t know where my roots go to. I don’t know how far back they go… I don’t know what country in Africa I’m from, but I do know that my roots are in Louisiana. I’m an American. And that’s a colorless person.”

  1. She been out of the closet. She had a nervous break down years ago and her mother told her to stay out of the cameras way. I do understand the African thing. That’s just a way of the world. Africa is a place known for blacks with problems/diseases. But Kings/Queens comes from there too.

    • I dont like this little jerk but she is right about most BLACK Americans are of mixed race. As high as 70% and we know nothing about african culture. That is why as of late, they have managed to bring their child soldier culture, drugs, and death to our communities.

      • America is a white construct they created for land the stole for ThEMSELVES…black people are ONLY indigenous to Africa…if you put a cat in the oven that does not make it a cake.

      • I hang my head in shame.. I genuinely feel embarrassed by her comments ans I can’t even tell you how kissed off I am right now! Her roots are in Louisiana..??? What?? As a wise man once said ‘are you dizzy blud’? This is a classic case of a lost black American, quick to breakdown the race barrier, sure u get it your American and you have that pride good for you but you have a culture and trust it does not lie in Louisiana.. You’re black honey and if you don’t know where in Africa you originate from DO SOME RESEARCH! You might not find the exact country but you’ll learn something That will enrich you. I said it in a previous post and I’ll say it again.. certain Black Americans DO NOT have a clue of who they are and its sad. Schools will be quick to tell you that you were saved from a savage life into a civilized one but they won’t tell you who you were before slavery occurred, don’t be lazy learn.. the more you know.. the more you know! Whether you know, don’t know or choose not to acknowledge it Black America sets a standard for all black people in the world and with that said if people are thinking along the lines of this little cretin then what hope do we have!

          • Not one black American could answer that question simply because we’re not from Africa nor are we Africans.Thats should be painfully obvious.

            • Still, I’ve met an overwhelming number of Nigerians who look like me. I disagree that I am African American; however, I am definitely from Africa, somewhere down the line.

            • Its not about whom looks like you,its about the spirit.Nigerians are Hamites and they know American Blacks are not the same group as them.We are from the seed of Shem not Ham.

      • Still, it only cost 99 dollars to find out where exactly in Africa you come from. Oprah should have brought out Henry Louis Gates at that moment and handed her a test kit.

        Oprah had 0% European Blood. None of her slave family got raped.

      • Isaiah Washington Did Some Research About His African Heritages And He Found Out He’s Not Actually African

    • LOL!!! There were stories years ago about her having drinking problems and paying female prostitutes. She’s a child of television and Disney. I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s been molested.

      • They said she had a nasty nose candy habit too. It was part of her weight loss plan

      • I hope Bill Cosby didn’t molest her. That’s the rumor going around. If he did, he needs to have his balls cut off and forced to have a Jello pudding pop shoved up his ass!

        • BILL MIGHT LIKE THAT FREAKY CHIT.

          KIND OF ODD THAT IN THE COSBY SHOW IN THE LATE 80’S THERE WAS ALWAYS A SCENE WHERE BILL HAD RAVEN SIT IN HIS LAP.

          • Alicia Keys Guest Starred In “The Crosby Show” He Also Bounced Alicia On His Knee Do’t Forget Keisha

  2. Oprah lookin heaps trangenderish it that pic. And what kinda hug is that. Lookin like a jujitsu grip for a flip move. Fark I’m bored.

  3. remember all u closet lesbos you’re not gay you’re a female who happens to like other females.

    DISNEY TURNING OUT YOUNG GIRLS SINCE 1929.

    YAY MICKEY.

  4. Hey she got more guts then all of those down low closet cases and jailbird queens f*cking up hiphop and the NBA! More power to any out homosexual! That includes EJ Johnson, too at least he ain’t tripping! If there is a god then she made all those gay people I got no issue with homosexuality as long as they not acting like an asshole, like most down lows do. down low gays and lesbians got anger issues, hiding and creeping.

  5. This is not a good thing, I am tired of these lesbian ho sistas, homosexuality is a disease, Im sure she like licking Oprah Lesbo Pus£y

  6. On second thought,she is a savy individual. She dont believe that shit herself!She just shook up the dynamic and the narrative of the MIGHTY OPRAH WINFREY! She took control of the interview thats all. She know better than that shit she was rapping!!!!!!!!!!

  7. Wow Raven sounds confused. She doesnt consider herself african american? When the police pull you over or when someone gives a description of how you look your black. She could have said she was mixed but you dont have to go ancestry.com to know what your roots are to say that you are black. In this society your physical appearance is what people define you as.

  8. Again this all apart of hollyweird and the world system to makke folk believe that the normal isreally abnormal. Disneg has been molesting children for years. Rayven, Lindsey, Brittany, etc and so many others are a result of the product that Walt produced. This is a result of years of mental abuse at the hads of adults. I feel sorry Rayven.

  9. If y’all had met this girl’s parents 20 years ago on the set of Cosby you would know why she f*cked in da head. They were little nuthin ni&&as who got some shine through Raven and thought they had now arrived. They treated staff wrong, people wrong, except of course, Cosby himself.

    I don’t know about the African-American denial, but to say she is an American and colorless person is like an oxymoron. Dumb bitch don’t know her history. America is totally based on race and if she doesn’t have one, then she too dumb for any race.

    Let the carpet munchers have her.

  10. At the end of the day Raven you are black light skin to be exact. Lol. She should be proud and not embarrassed of her race. American sounds too plain just remember the history of this country. If Raven did reseach of her ancestors she would probably find out that they were raped.

  11. I think Raven put on a show to make people think she has arrived in this deep intellect of self.consciousness but baby girl is not fooling me. She is driven by a dark force as if she is programmed into some heavy wickedness. Raven has been out of her element for quite some time and any identity she has is gone. I can see in a fwe years a suicide or “strange” homicide with her.

  12. I’ve always like Raven and though she’s 100% correct about not being an African she’s not an American either because America is the name of a white Italian named Americo Vaspucci.So unless she’s AME Rico’s daughter,niece or cousin she or no other black woman is an American.

  13. Raven can save all that colorless stuff for her dreams and get her head out the clouds, because we don’t live in a colorless society , and with all the money she has she wont be able to find one either, unless she builds it herself.

    she looks like Nicole Richey in this pic

  14. Raven has more money than anybody, she should just stay out of the limelight like she’s been doing. Her whole thing denying her blackness is par for the course for a lot of today’s negroes. I’m really not interested in her life or where she has been, she’s irrelevant, which is why she’s talking to Oprah.

    • Oprahs is a d list interviewer now. She has lost a lot of people who really belive in god. She is showing her true colours. Talkin bout there is more than one way to heaven, trying to cut Jesus out the picture. She gunna have a lot to answer for.

      • Yeah, she is. It’s interesting how she can’t get a good interview ever since she started her network.

  15. I don’t think she’s denying her blackness, per se. I see it as denying the African-American label. White people don’t call themselves European-Americans! If you’re not directly from Africa (like 1 or 2 generations removed), why would you label yourself as from a continent that you have NO connection to? I feel the same way. I’d rather be called black than AA.

    • All Black people are from Africa no matter how many generations back. You are connected by blood. Period

    • America is a British colony…it’s Europe abroad therefore when they say American they pay homage to where THEY are from…Europe.

    • THE WHOLE AFRICAN-AMERICAN THANG CAME ABOUT WHEN JAMES BROWN CHANGED THE NAME “COLORED” OR “NEGRO” OVERNIGHT WIT “SAY IT LOUD.”

      YT WANTED NO PART WITH US DEFINING OURSELVES, HENCE THE NAME CHANGE.

      ALL PART OF CONTROLLING THE POPULATION.

      REAL TALK.

  16. I used to not understand why some black Americans didn’t want to be called African American, but I get it now. It’s not that they don’t want to be associated with being black, although I will say in Raven’s case, it doesn’t seem like she wants to be seen as black either. But black is a race and African American is an ethnicity. So a person not wanting to be called African American, does not mean they are denying their race.

    Why should anybody be forced to identify as African when they are not from over there? We don’t try to force Haitians, blacks from the Caribbean, and etc. to claim that, so why should blacks in America? We are Americans. Our ancestors built this damn country and it is more ours than any country in Africa.

    But back Raven, she seems like a self-hating negro. She wants to be white so bad. The dummy is from Georgia, but trying to claim Louisiana. I guess this is because she wants to be seen as one of those light bright Creoles with white and Native American blood that come from there. Well, sorry to disappoint her, but most Louisiana Creoles have about as much white blood in them as most blacks in America. It is not even significant enough to claim, so they are not anymore special or unique than the rest of black Americans.

    Unless you come from the Carolinas – where the black slaves far outnumbered the whites, so they didn’t mix as much – on average, most blacks in America are at least 20% white. I think blacks from California on average have 1 – 2 % more than that, but that’s stykk not enough to be damn claiming which is what Raven is trying to do. Seems she wants to be anything but black honestly. So to me, this is more than just about her not being from Africa or not knowing anything about being African. She doesn’t want to identify with being apart of any group that has traditionally been looked down upon or oppressed in this country. I tell you self-hating coons are the worst kind. This bobble headed bitch was allowed to prosper on a couple of black American sitcoms before going over and being whored out by Disney, but now has the nerve to not want to identify with being black – she just sounds ignorant to me honestly.

  17. Oprah is recruiting for her lesbian society so she can lead more souls to hell. A bunch of clit licking freaks.

    • Raven don’t need to be recruited. That’s like recruiting Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen. They BEEN around. Besides, Raven had to have landed That’s So Raven somehow.

      • I know that,what i mean is she is using Raven to recruit other girls into the Lesbo Society. Carpet munching freaks.

  18. RAVEN WAS MOLESTED LIKE MOST DISNEY CHILD STARS I.E MILEY,KIESHA KNIGHT PULLAM,THE CORYS, ARIANA GRANDE AN THE LIST GOES ON SELLOUT BY THERE PARENTS GFOR FAME ITS NO SURPISED WHEN THEY GROW UP THEY BE TURNT OUT GAY, ADDICTS,ALCOHOL,ETC.

  19. We need to pray for her because she never had a fair chance to be normal. She was sold out by her parents. U hope God will be merciful with all these children of sexual abuse.

  20. Yeah look how Amanda Bynes, Lindsay Lohan, Maia Campbell, Lark Voorhies, Mischa Barton all turned out. The industry is ruthless with all these pedophiles running around.

  21. All of these Disney child stars have one thing in.common: all of them get turnt out and their lives are darkened with wickedness!

  22. Raven Been Shacking Up With That Girl From “ANTM” The Brown Skin Girl
    Plus Bill Crosby Was Bouncing Raven On His Knee “Yuck” Why Would A Man In He’s 40’s Do That Type Or Shyt

  23. @beauty Ive never heard anything about Keshia Knight Pulliam. I think she was sparred because Ive never heard her having nervous breakdowns and running with the wrong crowd.

    • Keisha was rumored to be a closet cokehead and she is engaged to Tigger from the BET rap city basement who was allegedly phucking Tyson Beckford

      • Thank you.

        I love Keshia…and Tigger, but there’s something up with them. The coke rumors were strong, and too many ppl in the know have assured me that Tigger is gay.

  24. Raven doesn’t give a damn about what any of you all think. She’s brilliant in this public relations move.

    • Public relations. Who f*ck cares if she gay. This for the agenda. Plain and simple. No one cares except other gay people. I want celebrities to come out as heterosexual. Now that would be news. Hahahahaha.

  25. It comes to show u that even though u may have riches and fame u still have problems in life like regular people

  26. Keisha is no cokehead that was just a role she was playing for that Tyler Perry movie. You cant say nothing about the rest of the cast of the Cosby show. Well maybe crazy Denise.

    • Tempest Bledsoe doesn’t even want you to say the name Cosby to her. She hates the thought of being a Cosby kid. Nobody knows why…

  27. Omg you all aint going to believe this. Remember the show 7th Heaven the man who played the father real name Stephen Collins has admitted to child molestations!

    • IS HE GONNA BE ARRESTED.

      HE WAS FIRED FROM TED 2 GUESS HES TOO FREAKY TO BE AROUND SETH MACFARLENE’S NASTY PERVERTED GAY ASS.

  28. YEAH KIEAHA IS A VERY SMART GIRL, SHE WAS INDEED MOLESTED WHEN SHE WAS YOUNG BUT SHE MANAGED TO NOT PARTAKE IN DRUGS AN THATS GOOD. BUT MOSTLY ALL THEM GET MOLESTED PEODPHILE GOEA ON STRONG IN DA INDUSTRY. THEY PARENTS AINT SHIT TRYING LIVE THROUGH THEY KIDS THATS WHY MOST OF THEM ARE FUCKES

  29. MOST OF THEM BE TURNT OUT I.E LINDSAY LOHAN IM SURPUSED THE ILLUMNATI HAVNT OFFD HER YET MUCH AS SHE DONT WANT TO COMPLY WIT THEM ALL THEM HAVE TO GO THROGH RITUALS CASTING COUCH ITS REALLY SAD THESE GIRL PARENTS SELL THEM OUT FOR RICHES THEN WHEN MOST OF THEM GROW UP FUCKED UP U WONDER WHY PEDOPHILES IN HOLLYWEIRD TUNN THEM OUT SAD.

  30. Let’s Not Forget Raven Did Star In “The Crosby Show” At A Very Young Age
    Bill Was Phucking Phylicia Rashad On/Off Set (Probably Phucked On Set!!) Bill Was Jealous Of Lisa Bonnet’s Marriage to Lenny Krativz
    And Lisa Went On To Do “Different World” Away From Bill!! (Wonder Why)

    Black Celebrities Like White People’s Attention Frank Ocean Came Out The Closet Now White People Are Defending Him Remember That
    Incident With Him And Chris Brown White People Was Defending Frank Even Adele With Her Fat Self Defended Frank

    When Black Celebrities Degraded Themselves White People Like It

    • Bill Cosby was the main culprit and reason that Ahmad Rashad and phylicia married was having so many problems and ultimately failed because he was extremely jealous of they’re relationship and hated the Cosby show because he thought the show seemed to authentic as in real life.

      • Bill Ruined That Marriage By Dipping His Dick In A Married Woman’s Cup Cake. He Should Of Known Better

        • Phylicia is a grown ass woman. If she didn’t want Bill to hit then he wouldn’t have hit.

          • @hsk top comment

            You Sound Ignorant Married Women Aren’t Meant To Spread Their Legs To Other Men But To Their Husbands. She Took Her Vow Before God
            And She Should Of Honored Her Marriage Vow!!!! Not Getting Double Dipped By Bill Crosby

    • Bill Cosby did Lisa Bonet bad! He blacklisted her in such a way that her career never really recovered. Don’t mess with Cosby.

  31. The term African American was coined by messy Jessy Jackson and like sheep followers many Black Americans ate it up not knowing that in the 50’s-80’s we were never ever referred to as Africans to begin with.There’s a major difference between a hamite and a negro and whoever doesn’t see that is sound asleep.

    • It must be exausting repeating yourself and trying to get everyone else to fit in your little box of perception

      • Not as exhausting as it must be for you following me around responding to all my comments.Here’s some water!!

        • i dont need any water,.i have responded to 1 comment you made, but you make it a point to rant about “hamites” and isrealites on every thread so how about you save that water for yourself.

  32. BlackAmericans are not Africans and never were.We are Hebrews and I’m proud of that.The white man told you Jesus was white and we both know that’s a damn lie so why in the hell would you think he’d tell you the truth about you’re true identity when he’s Lief in the past?!Only a well trained slave would believe a proven liar!The white man knows the difference between an African and a Black American. Don’t believe Me?Ask yourself how many Africans from Africa socialize or live in your neighborhoods.Its a reason for that.

  33. Africa and America are not only the names of two white men but they’re also two continents. Please tell me how could one group of people be named after two separate continents.Wake up and stop being a well trained slave.

  34. Notice how this story isn’t getting mainstream press coverage. When Ellen Degeneres came out, she was on the cover of Time magazine. Just FYI guys.

    • Raven Symone hasn’t done anything noteworthy in the industry in years. She also “came out” a long time ago on Twitter, so why would anyone care about her Oprah interview now?

    • ellen has the power of white skin.

      of course when whiteS comne out they’re gonna MAKE IT BIGGER.

      TRHEN AGAIN WHITES HAVA GAY ICONS, GAY TV SHOWS, GAY CASRTOONS EVEN AND THE WHITE LGBT SUPPORT EACH OTHER.

    • Damn ya’ll have some short memories, not everything is about race. Ellen was blacklisted after she came out, her show was cancelled and everything. Being out and proud wasn’t the trend like it is now. It was brave of her to take that chance.

  35. Ironman is so stupid. How the f*ck do you know what the f*ck gays like to be called????? Gay is acknowledging your doing wrong things, pssst…gtfoh, you real stupid 4 dat one.

  36. I think that blacks doesn’t like the fact that the white man has made them go from Negro to African Americans. Media exposes African as a nasty dirty poor country. The only time they showed blacks good people come out of Africa is when Eddie Murphy did Comin to America.

      • Remember Malcolm had that tv show? But I think he didnt totally want that type of lifestyle so he aint playing like that no more

    • Malcolm Jamaal-Warner has issues. Since Michelle Thomas died, he hasn’t been the same. I don’t think he wants a wife or children, so with that stated, he should either keep his relationships with women very shallow and superficial or he shouldn’t date at all. I feel bad for Regina King. She thought he was going to marry her. Next thing you know, they broke up.

  37. LETS SEE DRUGS, LESBIANISM, CHILD MOLESTATION , HANGING AROUND OLD BLACK MEN WHO LIKE JELLO, MAKING A RAP ALBUM, HANGING AROUND COKEHEADS WHO WERE TURNED OUT AT DISNEY.

    YES RAVEN IS AN OFFICIAL; MOUSKETEER.

    NOBODY TURNS OUT LITTLE GIRLS MORE THAN DINEY.

    PRINCESS SYNDROME INDEED.

  38. back in the day her colorless ass would have been a bed wench for massas guests . damn how far have we sunk where its more honorable to be queer than to claim your race

  39. Well all i know is that i have a 12″ penis and all they would have to do is leave her with me for a few days and i will straighten her out. When i was done with her she would never want to lick another vagina again. I can make her feel things another woman never,ever can.

      • If you look good you can get some,but you must be drug and disease free and a real female. Let a brother know what’s up. I will hook you up.

  40. Who cares what she wants to be called but……stay away from Oprah! Look up Agenda 21! I see you Oprah

  41. Ex 11:7 But against any of the children of Israel shall not a dog move his tongue, against man or beast: that ye may know how that the LORD doth put a difference between the Egyptians and Israel.

    • The 2/3rds will never get this truth my brother but we’ll keep beating them over the head with this knowledge until they get it.

  42. malcom dated michelle, and Karen malina white who was all on the cosby show amnd regina king was a child actor in the 80’s 227 and cosby were both on nbc.

    michelle Thomas died when she was 33 years old I believe.
