Cosby Kid Central: 15 Hilarious Olivia Memes
With Raven-Symone being colorless and in a relationship with a woman, all the Internet has broken loose and just in case you’ve been under a rock or cut off from the Internet here’s what went down:
After sparking outrage for remarks about not being African-American in an exclusive Oprah interview last weekend, Raven-Symoné responded to critics who took issue with her stance on racial identity.
“I never said I wasn’t black… I want to make that very clear. I said, I am not African-American. I never expected my personal beliefs and comments to spark such emotion in people. I think it is only positive when we can openly discuss race and being labeled in America,” she told TheGrio.
On the most recent episode of Where Are They Now, which aired last Sunday, the interview took an unexpected turn when Symoné expressed her aversion to labels in the context of being in a same-sex relationship and her sexual orientation. She asserted, “I’m tired of being labeled. I’m an American. I’m not an African-American, I’m an American.” With family roots in Louisiana, Symoné continued, “I’m an American, and that’s a colorless person. Because we’re all people; I have lots of things running through my veins.” Oprah bluntly told Symoné that she’d draw a lot of flack for her statements, but the actress insisted, “I have darker skin. I have a nice, interesting grade of hair. I connect with Caucasian, I connect with Asian, I connect with black, I connect with Indian. I connect with each culture.”
While we all digest that, let’s spend some time with our girl Olivia and the hilarious Olivia Meme streams that the folks over at @OliviaBossChick have built with her adorable Cosby Show image.
