For months, Raven-Symone has been in the headlines for her controversial, prejudiced comments made on The View, and elsewhere, like her infamous comments on Oprah‘s OWN network, and people are beginning to take both notice, and action.
A petition to remove the former Disney and The Cosby Show star from the popular daytime talk show has garnered over 120,00 signatures. The motive behind the petition is definitively explained, and the tipping point behind whoever started it on Change.org appears to be Raven’s questioning of why the Spring Valley HS student that was maliciously slammed and dragged by a police officer in her classroom was on her phone. You can read it below, and check out the petition for yourself here.
Raven Symone has been spouting her ignorant and self hating spiel on the view for Long enough, from stating that she wouldn’t hire somebody for having a ghetto name, to openly complaining about reverse racism, the final straw was her comment about the recent viral video of the school police officer assaulting the student, where Raven Symone said “get off your phone in school then”. African Americans and black people around the diaspora need a voice representative of their views and not a voice representative of what white people want us to say. We need strong black rolemodels in prominent positions on television an Raven Symone cannot provide that. That is why I ask that we petition to remove her from The View.
