Raven Symone wants everyone to remember the motto we all learned as a child, “if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all.”
We thought the drama surrounding Raven’s Oprah: Where Are They Now? interview had subsided but apparently it hasn’t. In a lengthy Facebook post, the child star addresses the taunting she’s steadily ignored since her controversial Oprah Winfrey discussion.
I don’t take offense to those that are mad at my personal opinion of myself. Like before, I’m glad there are conversations happening. Our generation tends to stay comfortable ,at times, with issues and topics that need to be addressed.
QUESTION: If we are taught not to repeat history by learning it. Why do we continue to repeat? We must not be learning it correctly.
What does irritate me is the bulling tone towards myself and other opinions in the blog. Keep your disrespectful, mean, hurtful, words in a diary for yourself. Personal attacking is not needed, and no matter what race, nationality, culture, or womb you came out of; strive for respect. Strive to be virtuous, so the conversation can lead to great things, other things.
Our ancestors of all races had the courage to stand up for what they believed in no matter what the fight. Back then I hope the motto wasn’t…”the more haters the better”
We have reached a standstill in our progression as Humans. Let’s have a floor of RESPECT, KINDNESS, OPENMINDED-nESS. Showing your disagreement with my personal comments by using language you were not allowed to use as a child is just.
My momma reads this, and so do others. #bully
If you remember, Raven’s disdain for labels (“I don’t want to be labeled ‘gay.’ I want to be labeled ‘a human who loves humans. I’m tired of being labeled. I’m an American. I’m not an African American; I’m an American”) led to an uproar on social media for weeks.
We thought it was over but apparently there are still people that aren’t happy with her and don’t know how to correctly express their dislike. Do you agree with her FB posts or are you still not back to being #TeamRavenSymone?
