When a bytch is dead to me that’s just what they are. I don’t conjure spirits. I don’t visit graves, and I don’t talk to psychics trying to deliver me messages and last words and shyt. Raven-Symoné has been dead to me for a long time. Her comments distancing herself from her blackness have been off-putting and cringe-inducing moments (to say the least), but the way she has showed her ass on The View has been a worse stain on The Cosby Show’s legacy than Bill’s Sleeping Beauty fetish.
If there were re-runs to watch, I wouldn’t watch her seasons. Little Olivia loves going overboard about how she’s the most well-adjusted of the child stars, but give me Linsey Lohan anyday. At least you know she’s just gonna get high and pass out. Not sit in your face saying dumb shyt like she’s from every continent in Africa and give you wide, closed-moufed smiles.
By now I’m sure everyone has heard her words regarding name discrimination in employment. If you haven’t I’ll read a Chapter from the Book of Confused Identity now:
“I’m not about to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea. It’s just not going to happen. I’m not going to hire you.”
Of course Raven received the epic Twitter dragging she deserved. To which she issued this bullshyt, standard-issue, white entitlement apology she bought from Matt Damon~whose also dead to us.
My comments about discrimination have spun out of control.
I’d like to begin by saying that I was not attacking a specific race, but repeating a name that was said in a viral video which has received over 2 million likes.
I have been denied many jobs because of my skin color, body size, and age. Each time I was rejected, my self esteem was negatively effected, so i empathize with those who feel victimized by what I said. We would hope that when it comes to hiring, our names, physical appearance, sexual orientation, and age would never outweigh our qualifications, but often times, they do, thats the truth and it sucks. But I should not be part of the problem, I should be part of the solution.
As an equal opportunity employer, I have never discriminated against a name….even though I said I would, it’s not true. My comment was in poor taste. My lack of empathy towards name discrimination was uncalled for. I would also like to say that on Friday my account was hacked, those are not my words.
I can’t believe she even threw in the “I was hacked” excuse. That was just sad, petty, and trife. She’s showing us she doesn’t give a damn that we’re offended and she’ll just tell us anything.
The sad part in all of this is there are many “Raven’s” in Human Resources. Not racist whites, but blacks so anxious to earn brownie points with them that they over-police other blacks for pats on the head.
I myself might not name a child of mine some of these names and urge others to consider the ramifications as well, but I would never discriminate on someone based on their name. EVER. It’s not right. It’s not cool. It’s not cool to say, and it doesn’t make you sound like the type of boss I would want to work for. My name should not overshadow my abilities or the quality of my work.
The ironies of Raven-Symoné criticizing anyone being a frumpy lesbian have already been pointed out, but what bothers me so much is that Raven comes off a lot dumber and ghetto than the women she proclaims to be so much more better than. This chic needs a break and a seat. She does not need to be on anyone’s talk show representing the “black voice” in an ensemble. I still haven’t forgotten what she said when those racist foreigners called Michelle Obama a monkey.
But Raven is like many white racist homosexuals I know. They’re quick to point out all the ways gays are oppressed and they can tell u every little nuance to sexist oppression, but will be the first ones to say “No fats. No fems. No blacks! (Don’t hate me for my preference)”
Raven you’re Dead2Us. So I wish someone would bury all those My Little Pony wigs you wear in hallowed ground so we don’t have to hear your unrested spirit carpet munching in the afterlife. We don’t use you and this little role you’ve been given to make a complete fool out of millennial blacks is blowing up in your face.
Qmunity I’d like for all of you to go over to The View’s Twitter and Tweet them that we want Raven off of the Show and they’ll get no peace until our demands are met.
