Tales of Buffoonery: Episode 10(Raven Symone)

This post has been a long time coming for this woman. I used to watch her on The Cosby Show as a kid. I always thought she was a pretty talented actress. I don’t even care about the fact that she’s a well known lesbian. This post isn’t about her anti-sexual deathstyle…..I mean lifestyle. But apparently as she has gotten older she has not gotten much wiser. Actress Raven Symone has said some pretty ignorant statements the last few years. Last year she said she didn’t want to be considered “black” anymore.  She’s part of this silly nonsense called the “new black”. This is a complete joke in my opinion. It’s just another way for self-hating blacks to distance themselves from anything that has to do with either Africa or blackness in general. Well she has recently opened her big mouth and defended a racist bigot.Raven has a guest host on ABC’s “The View” Monday, the actress weighed in on the controversial comments a TV host made about Michelle Obama’s appearance.During the conversation, Symone seemed to offer a bizarre defense of the now-fired host’s comments.Univision’s Rodner Figueroa was fired last week. for suggesting that the first lady could have been cast in the “Planet of the Apes” franchise.Regular View host Rosie Perez was livid about the remark, calling it undeniably racist. Symone wasn’t convinced.“He did say Michelle Obama looks like a cast member of the ‘Planet of the Apes,’” Perez said emphatically.“But was he saying it ‘racist-like?’” Symoné interjected. “Because [Figueroa] did say he voted for [Michelle] later and I don’t think he was saying it racist.”“Oh please!” Perez fired back. “That’s like saying, ‘I’m not a racist, but I have black friends.”

I have to side with Perez on this one. Raven is a racist bigot’s wet dream! They can say the most degrading,insulting thing about black people and blacks like Raven will come their rescue. She is this new wave of “race apologists”. They are there to make racist bigots feel comfortable in their racism. That was her sole purpose for being on The View. She was there to provide balance. I think this is rap dancing,self hating buffoonery to the highest degree! Do you think I’m overreacting? Do you think this was a stupid comment for her to make? Should black people be defending racists? Let me know your thoughts.

  1. I had the misfortune or fortune to see this live today. We happened to be having lunch in the breakroom and the television was on and tuned to the view. I usually ignore television because it’s just noise to me. Anyway, I heard this conversation start up and I had to listen. The best part about coonery is it more than likely kills itself and I think it may have killed itself today. Raven Symone is done and she stuck that knife in and twisted herself. I couldn’t believe the shit that was coming from her mouth and we all know like you stated up there – she has a history of this type of thing. I won’t say much more as to not seem antiBlack, but since she ain’t Black it wouldn’t be considered antiBlackness.

    But the star of the day was Ms. Perez. Let’s give her a big hand for speaking that truth. She’ll probably have blowback from the latino community, but she figured that too I would imagine. I bet J-ho I meant J-lo wouldn’t have said a word.

    • You are indeed correct HLJ. Raven is done! I’m through with this fool! And I give much props to Perez for speaking the truth. Many Afro Latinos have a serious hatred for their African roots. That’s something that is never spoke about in the latino community. That took some guts for her to say. Perez never gets her props from latinos though. Possibly because she looks more “black” than J Lo does. And Lopez is much more white-identified in my opinion. Yeah I now she dated Puff Daddy but that means nothing to me. She’s still kisses the ass of white Hollywood way too much. It’s sad because Perez was representing for black people harder than Raven was! True definition of a buffoon!

    • Respect to Rosie Perez for not only speaking the truth on national tv but also not letting anyone at the table and general let stupid and tired excuses for racism go unchallenged! The president and first lady have been insulted in the most vile ways including racist and stereotypical comments and imagery. This is since Obama was elected in 2008. This is not an exaggeration. Its been reported on news. The excuses for racism aimed at the president, first lady, African Americans and African Disapora has equally been excused as just “a few bad apples” without looking at society as a whole.

      If anyone makes racist statements that feeds into society’s long standing institutional racism they should receive a well deserved punishment. All it takes is racist and hateful comments and speeches to lead to hateful actions and worst. History and current events has shown us this hundreds of times.

  2. She is turning into Stacey Dash. I can’t believe she tried to defend that BS. Last year I was done with her after the I’m not black comment. If you can’t stand with us then don’t expect us to stand with you when your wake up call comes…her Stacey Dash and the new Kanye West are going to get theirs…

  3. This is true ignorance at its finest! Raven has been getting the side eye from me since she made the “new black” comments on Oprah. Seems like she’s still finding herself. Until she does she needs to keep her mouth shut. She is just embarrassing herself…I just can’t with her…

    • Isn’t it truly ignorant though?? She should be ashamed. All this “new black” talk is getting way out of hand sis. Raven along with Pharell and Kanye as well. They all just want to distance themselves from the plight of black people. They want to be seen as some type of “other race”. Total nonsense! They look like fools when they talk like that.

  4. What you all are witnessing with Raven is the manifestation of a double-minded spirit of confusion. She seems truly confused on all fronts: her race, her sexuality, and the way the world works. It makes me wonder if she had parents who were truly talking and rearing her in her childhood, or did she run the household and her parents as a child because she was the bread winner like many child stars. Anyway, I still think “That’s so Raven” was one of the top 10 funniest sitcoms of all time.

    We need to pray that she rids herself of that double-minded spirit because right now she’s a lost soul. Really.

  5. As I see this whole thing with BLACK AMERICAN’S. In HOLLYWIRED, Steve Harvey Not caring for slavery… And all the other black buffoons that support the RACIST SOCIETY that is, is just as Big of a fool to go along with something that Is causing their people harm… They have no just in my book… they what need’s to have the tendency to love and care for those that don’t give a dame about their people. But I don’t think your over reacting, I have been seeing the show.. And I have been paying attention to her. She Is morphing herself In to some kind of White Lesbian Chick.

  6. Raven doesn’t have a TV show or participated in a movie for years so why the hell I have to listen to her stupid opinions. She now looks fugly, by pretending to be white so why bother what she have to say in front of national TV? The asshole made an offensive remark against Michelle Obama, he got Fired, end of story. She just want to add fuel to the fire and she’s gonna get burn bad. She’s not thinking by herself, instead she is influenced by the white elite agenda to say that is not bad being insulted, denigrated and stereotyped by whites, that is all ok for her. And I think she’s receiving money to suit her so called lifestyle in exchange to be humiliated at some point. These New Blacks are merely cowards.

  7. Black people need to understand that it doesn’t matter how we act. People are still going to hate us anyway. White people complain that oh black people are too lazy and not ambitious, but then if a black person is ambitious they feel threatened and sabotage the black person (heck they sabotage us even if we are not super driven). A black person could wear all the white culture clothes, speak like a white person (in terms of defending racist actions etc) and be as whitewashed as possible, but the black person will always be a threat to the white person because the black person is not white. What do we seem to not understand about that? What is this new black anyway?

    We can’t escape our physical attributes. And we can’t run away from ourselves. Even if all of us acted “perfect” , there would be some white person or non-white person accusing us of doing something wrong when we did no wrong. That’s just life. She needs to stop defending these people who don’t give a f*** about her too. Because at the end of the day we all know, they are just using her to cause more confusion. They’ll say, “well she is black so we can’t possibly be racist. She is not offended by our comments.”

    • That’s true Kowaba. Raven is young and dumb. She will regret those statements I guarantee you. She just wants to keep getting paid and stay in the limelight. Even if you have to throw your own people under the bus. Many of these buffoons have no shame.

    • I am a new poster here, but I have to say this because it wears heavy on my heart. “When will our people INTERNALIZE that these DNA defective people do not give a rat’s ass about ANY of us?” What is it going to take for our masses to understand that there is no way in hell that we should have had to fight all of the adversity against US from Day 1? The best revenge for US is be BETTER than the world expects US to be.

      Epi

      • I feel you Epi. We just need to do what we can to improves ourselves. Trying to get acceptance from our oppressors isn’t going to work. We have begged and pleaded for hundreds of years. We have changed our names. Changed our religion. Changed our way of thinking into their way of thinking and it’s gotten us nowhere! They will never accept us as “one of them”. So it’s best we stay true to ourselves and embrace our own culture. That’s the only hope we got.

  8. Raven is sooo done! We’ll see how this “New Black” Shit will work for her, Pharell, and others in the long run when white people are done using them as Negro puppets.
