What would Raven-Symone say...

Raven-Symone on Rosa Parks:

There are two wrongs here actually, but no one wants to talk about it.  Yes they were wrong for making her move – obviously she was tired – but Rosa could have avoided the whole thing if she hadn’t sat where she wasn’t supposed to.  Rules are rules and just breaking them may not be the best way to go about change.  Just my opinion.

Raven-Symone on Harriet Tubman:

I’m sorry…but Tubman?  Haha!  Who named her?  I mean, listen, do I really want to trust you to lead me to freedom when your name sounds like an obese guy?  Haha!  It’s not racist, I just can’t.  Right?

Raven-Symone on Martin Luther King Jr.:

We haven’t actually heard all the facts here.  What was he even doing on that balcony?  Who actually uses the hotel balcony?  I think we need to first wonder why he was even out there to begin with because if he had just stayed in his room, he would still be alive today.

Raven-Symone on Jim Crow Laws: 

I personally wouldn’t even want to go to a restaurant that didn’t allow Black people because who would be in the kitchen frying up the chicken?!  Haha!  Besides, restaurants can still choose to serve who they want.  Where is Al Sharpton fighting against “No Shoes, No Shirt” regulations, huh?

Raven-Symone on The Civil War:

You know, sometimes families fight.  It’s just how families are.  But that doesn’t mean that either side is necessarily right or wrong.  You have to look at the bigger picture and just because you disagree with someone doesn’t give you free license to try and change everything about them.

Raven-Symone on The Atlantic Slave Trade:

Hey, I know I could use a free cruise, am I right?!  Haha!

She is such trash.  Like, c’mon girl, if you wanted a job with Fox News that badly all you had to do was apply.  They are always looking for another coon to shuck & jive over there.  Ask Stacey Dash how big her paycheck is and then mosey on over.  I’m tired of this African- Just-American making excuses for every damn thing.

Edit: Apparently a lot of y’all believe these are real?  Either y’all slow or she really is such garbage that you can picture this coming out of her mouth.
