WADOO!!NEWS: Raven Symone Causes a Social Media Frenzy by Saying She’s from “Every Continent in Africa and Europe
While talking with E! News’ Alicia Quarles, the That’s So Raven alum talked about her ancestry but she seemed a bit confused about ‘continents’ and ‘countries’…and the difference between them.
“I never said I wasn’t black, I said I wasn’t African American — to me, that’s a difference. Thank you to ancestry.com for sending me my DNA test. I am from every continent in Africa except for one and I’m also from every continent in Europe except for one.
We are a melting pot of beauty. We have to embrace the different cultures we have. And if you don’t, we’re still gonna have these problems that are blasting up everywhere. And call me hippie, call me a free-thinker, call me someone that’s looking for a better life, but I wanna be in a better world.”
While Alicia Quarles seemed not to notice the slip, the internet has not been so kind.
