NEWSFLASH! Former Cosby Kid Raven-Symone won’t hire you for a job if she can tell you’re Black by reading your name.
The women on of “The View” discussed the topic “Are You Judged By Your Name?” and when the topic of racism based on someone’s name arose, Raven, 29, said she thought it would be better to call it “discriminatory,” stating, “I think that’s a better word.”
She goes on to say:
“I’m very discriminatory against the words like the ones they were saying in those names. I’m not going to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea. It’s just not going to happen. I’m not going to hire you.”

Whoopi Goldberg, 59, didn’t say a word, but appeared dumbfounded as Raven made the racially targeted comments. At one point, the comedian put her hands on her chest and looked away from Raven.
One of the women at the roundtable then tried to reason with Raven, explaining to her that people don’t choose their names.
The controversial host was later dragged on social media and many pointed out how she shouldn’t judge anyone, considering her own name. Others made fun of Raven-Symone’s look, her ever changing hair color and her unique style stating that she’s one person who can’t possibly be ‘judging’ or ‘discriminatory’ about anyone!
I suspect Raven will be writing another open letter to all you ‘haters’ (click HERE if you missed the last one) or having another one on one with Oprah about her lost identity soon. *sigh*
