Now why would a Famous former Cosby Show actress say she doesn’t want you to label her as ‘Gay’ or ‘African American’ – even though she is both?
The answer just about makes Oprah – who lately is seeing everything through an African-American lens – jump out of her comfy chair to let this famous Nickelodeon actress (Raven-Symoné) know how much crap she was going to get for having the temerity to not want to be labeled with a hyphen or put into a category.
You gotta see this video. Forget about everything else and just watch Oprah get her panties in a wad when she can’t force her young guest – who played Olivia on “The Cosby Show” – to say she’s an African-American. It’s a riot!
The key exchange here was: “I’m tired of being labeled. I’m an American. I’m not an African-American. I’m an American.”
Then Oprah about faints and says; “Oh, my lord. What did you just say?” – like it’s blasphemy to not want “Separate, but Equal” or to be judged by the content of her character.
Oprah is about as racist a person on television now and I can’t stand it because I admired her for so many years – cutting her own path through the entertainment world. She can’t stand it when people – especially blacks – think for themselves.
That’s the liberal Democrat way now, isn’t it?
What could be more unifying than for all Americans to define themselves as human beings who love others, and accept others for who they are? That doesn’t mean we have to agree with every little thing everybody else does.
But at some point, we need to get past the petty labels, and start treating each other as unique individuals worthy of a fundamental level of respect.
