10 Raven-Symoné Quotes That Are Not So Raven

Raven on Caitlyn Jenner's Transition

Raven on Caitlyn Jenner's Transition

I’m not sure why Raven felt the need to alienate the LGBT community (of which she is included), but she just couldn’t help making negative remarks about Caitlyn Jenner. Each person expresses themselves in their own way, and it isn't your place to condemn someone for having a different experience than you.

You would think that if your name was Raven-Symoné you wouldn’t make assumptions of people based on what is printed on their birth certificate. You would be wrong. She a) truly feels this way and b) thinks it’s okay to voice those opinions in front of other people.

Raven on the $20 Bill

Raven on the $20 Bill

This, of course, came up in a discussion about featuring Harriet Tubman on the $20 bill. Here is an instance where saying “no offense” multiple times in no way makes what you are saying less insulting. Harriet Tubman is an important figure in American history and it is ludicrous to think that she is too far removed from “the progression that we’re doing now.”

Instead of a significant other, Raven is looking for a love doll. Luckily for her, that is probably her best option, as any sentient being would quickly get tired of her making offensive remarks about her own race. Someone point her to the nearest Adam & Eve.

Here, she tried to clarify her previous remark, only to end on the exact same note: “I do know people that look like animals!” It’s like when your child apologizes to you for breaking the rules and then immediately does it again, showing that they were never really sorry in the first place.

Raven on Labels

Raven on Labels

While labels can be demeaning and it is understandable that you might want to distance yourself from negative ones, when you make a remark like this, it tends to rub those who do identify with the label the wrong way. After this interview with Oprah Winfrey, Raven experienced much backlash from the Black community.

Yet again, she tried to cover her tracks when a scandal broke out after she claimed she didn’t want to belong to any labels. However, she seemed to maintain the same sentiment as the previous statement. Also, she said that she was trying to begin a communication about race in this country, which she did, but not in the way she intended.
