    even though raven symone played a part in one of black americas most celebrated shows in the 80s . i really dont like her as a celebrity or a person , she is very negative , and sneaky , she come off as sweet but yet shes bitter , she evaded the subject of bill cosby to save her neck , and she throw blacks under the bus and jabb at pres obama , as though she dont respect him . she struggles with her sexuality , and i think many black men refuse to date her due to her, childhood image she still looks like a little kid ….. and she is almost 30ish , she really dont impress kids like she use to shes too wacky to be a roll model and nuthing against her lebianism but you can tell that is not her choice or comfort but just her cover up to her other issues ….. im sorry but they could have picked lisa raye , or someone else

    Good for this “new black”. At least she knows that all that tap dancing wasn’t for nothing.
