Here’s a roundup of all the news you may have missed, but need to know.
Remember when Raven-Symoné said she didn’t want to be labeled as African-American because we are all Americans? One fellow celebrity is in agreement with the former The Cosby Show star. During an interview with Larry King Now, T.I. was asked about Raven-Symoné’s statement, and the Atlanta rapper supported Raven’s statement that labels separate the population.
“I think she has an incredible point,” said Tip. “We are all American. To separate us – I think we need to find more reasons to unify rather than to divide each other.”
T.I. was asked why doesn’t he like the term “African-American.”
“I didn’t say I didn’t like it. Words to me don’t have much power unless you give them power,” T.I. explained. “African-American is what I was taught to call myself. I consider myself African-American, Black, an American. They’re all categories that we place ourselves in where we see comfort in words.”
