Actress Raven-Symone Tells Oprah Not to Label Her
Posted by Steve Markowitz on October 13, 2014
Talk-show diva Oprah Winfrey recently interviewed former child actress Raven Symone who is known for her roles in The Cosby Show and That’s So Raven. Winfrey discussed issues with Symone related to her gay lifestyle. Symone’s responses, as seen in the video below, did not match Progressive Winfrey’s expectations from someone who is gay or African-American.
After Winfrey finished the politically correct questions, Raven retorted: “I’m tired of being labeled. I’m an American. I’m not an African-American; I’m an American”. Winfrey was obviously taken back by this response responding: “Oh, my lord. What did you just say?” That led Raven to put an exclamation point understatement saying:
“What I really mean by that is I’m an American. That’s what I really mean. I have darker skin. I have a nice, interesting grade of hair. I connect with caucasian. I connect with Asian. I connect with black. I connect with Indian. I connect with each culture.”
This Blog’s Libertarian roots applaud Ms. Raven-Symone for her intellect and guts. She joins a growing number, albeit small, of people from groups considered disadvantaged by the government that are throwing off the yoke of weakness and stigmatism foisted upon them by a out-of-control government. Look to these new libertarians with a conservative leaning to gain power within the movement and ultimately become an important force for real change in the country.
