Raven-Symone: “I’m From Every Continent In Africa…And Every Continent In Europe”

Published: Friday 27th Mar 2015 by Sam

“I’m every woman…it’s all in me”

Actress Raven-Symone is becoming increasingly notable for her soundbites these days.

Indeed, while recent times have seen her chastised for her comments regarding Beyonce and First Lady Michelle Obama, it’s the star’s declaration that she doesn’t consider herself Afro-American that continues to resonate a year on.

And if there was any hope that the critique would subside, it was dashed today when the ‘That’s So Raven’ lead sat down with E!

When quizzed about her comments regarding her race, she offered a response that must be seen to be believed.

Watch below…

Speaking to the host, Symone asserted that when tracing her ancestry she found that she was “from every continent in Africa and every continent in Europe.”

Peep the video:

Surely that was a slip of tongue and she meant country? Surely…?!

Your thoughts?

    Lol. And someone pointed this out in the last Raven post. Her thoughts are to big for her head.


    • Toohotfortv March 27, 2015

      I was about to say, I could’ve sworn I mentioned this exact thing in the last Raven Symone post. I’m glad someone noticed.

      • tits mcgee March 27, 2015

        Yes, I peeped the video because of your observation. When I heard her I was stunned.

        Geography was clearly not her best subject in school.

    Africa and Europe are continents, what a ignorant person, i’m sure she wanted to say “countries” but still HOW CAN A SINGLE PERSON HAVE ANCENTORS IN EACH COUNTRY OF AFRICA AND EUROPE?
    She’s crazy.

    • tits mcgee March 27, 2015

      I hope she was being grandiose to make a point. If she truly believes that, you’re right she’s a bit unhinged. Lol.

      • Suicide Blonde March 27, 2015

        Her brain is not working.

    • Edna March 27, 2015

      How is it not possible if we all came from the same person? I’m sure she meant country.

      • Suicide Blonde March 27, 2015

        Do you really believe in that theory?, in 50 years they will say another story and so on, there’s something called haplogroup, how can she belong to each one of them, i only belong to one and so did my parents. Humans may be an only race but there clearly differences among us, genes don’t lie.

    I noticed that a while back, but it was a slip up. H3ll, most Americans think Africa is a country. Lol Shout out to my cousins on the mother land.

  4. smh March 27, 2015

    Help her lord. Jesus touch her. Poor thing is so clueless, did she graduate high school?

  5. ThatMessJuice March 27, 2015

    Breaking: Rihanna is releasing a double album. Y’all heard it from me first. I’m out!!!!

    • Mark111 March 27, 2015


    • Pat March 27, 2015

      And noone cares! Guh this is not a Rihanna post you pathetic no life having, c** guzzling looser!

    • Bang Bang March 27, 2015

      Who cares

  6. smh March 27, 2015

    and even if she meant countries, girl how does that affect your race? you aint more or less black than the rest of us. if every black person on earth traced back their ancestry to the 1800s then they are bound to find a whole lot of mixed b******* seeing as most of us were enslaved and colonised.
    seems like she’s trying very hard to run away from labels because she’s a triple minority (black, female and gay)… society is tough, but sis, you need to pick up a book… so embarrassing to hear this from a grown ass 30 year old.

    • OMG Logic!!! March 27, 2015

      There’s more women on the planet than men, so they are not a minority group.

      • smh March 27, 2015

        Women are definitely minorities in this patriarchal society. This is why feminism and women’s rights exist, don’t be dense.

  7. Mark111 March 27, 2015

    She speak too fast without thinking. But she does have a point, how long does one have to live here to be full American?

    • Toohotfortv March 27, 2015

      But why does claiming one part of your heritage negate the other parts? Like some one said earlier, most black people,in America, who have ancestors that were enslaved in the Americas, could probably be considered “multi-racial”. Honestly, I don’t even feel like explaining this stuff anymore. Everyday I grow more resolute that most people in this world are absolute idiots.

      • tits mcgee March 27, 2015


        *check please!* 🙂

  8. Dustin March 27, 2015

    NOT a Freudian slip. Lol.

    • The therapist March 28, 2015

      Technically, it wasn’t a Freudian slip. Most freudian slips have some type of sexual remark…. Lol she just made a mistake. Lls (i know you didnt say that… The writer got it wrong… Lol i thought it was funny that someone else picked up on it.

  9. Valerie March 27, 2015

    Ugh stfu Raven. Shes so annoying and attention seeking.

  10. FutureCIARA March 27, 2015

    Wow, This happened like a week ago, Why is this just now being reported.

  11. SipTheTruth March 27, 2015

    Sidenote sorry! – why didn’t beyonce release blow or mine as singles?

  12. Tyler Makaveli March 27, 2015

    Enough! Tired of hearing about this Step-N-Fetch-It

  13. metzo March 27, 2015

    Ughhh. She’s so complicated.

  14. Ms Shine March 27, 2015

    Give her a little slack.. More than usually most black people aren’t 100% African. If you were to go to Africa the people ther would call you American of African decent.

  15. Kelendria March 27, 2015

    Cocaine is a hell of a drug

  16. Ms Shine March 27, 2015

    While i don’t agree with her comments totally ..I see her point. I can’t tell you how many times I have been asked what are mixed with. My reply is usually my mama and daddy. Race is such big deal when we all come from mother land According to DNA research.

    • milano March 27, 2015

      I could go on for days but this is pretty much sums it up.

  17. RATEDXXX March 27, 2015

    I hope to God that she’s not on drugs…..why didn’t she built an empire like the olsen twins….

    I hope she get’s better….

  18. you wanna be on tv I bet March 28, 2015


  19. AnnaliseKeatingsNewWig March 28, 2015

    LOL we already covered all of this Sam in the other Raven post that Rashad made.
    Anyways the Hive cracked me up LOL! why is everyone so damn serious about getting bee emoji’s on their IG as if it’s bullying – like get a grip. Anyways I digress…


    • tits mcgee March 28, 2015

      Death @ that video! Raven was crazy in love with that song! 😉

  20. jodie March 30, 2015

    I feel sorry for her…She clearly has issues with self hate, over and over again she continues to argue the fact that she is African American. I understand that she has some white in her which is fair if she decides not to confirm to one race however she should just state that she is a mixture of races and leave it at that. But instead she chooses not to acknowledge her African American side. She needs to understand that she sounds like a fool and that she does to make sense when she speaks. Instead of genetic test she needs to do a ancestry test to find her roots so she can clearly define who she is because she is clearly confused and lost.
