Watch! Raven Symone causes Social Media Stir for Geography Failure: ‘I’m from every continent in Africa’ & Europe, except one
Actress Raven-Symone apparently needs to brush up her geography. During an interview with Alicia Quarles of E! News, the 29-year-old actress talked about her ancestry but apparently misunderstood the definition of “continent” versus “country,” when revisiting her previous statements to Oprah about not being African-American.
“I never said I wasn’t black, I said I wasn’t African American – to me that’s a difference,” she stated. “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,” she continued. “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.”
