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.”
