Actress Raven-Symoné caught a lot of flack earlier this month after telling Oprah that she’s “tired of being labeled,” and more specifically, she does not wish to be categorized as “Gay” (even though she has a girlfriend), or “African-American” (even though it’s her heritage).

The 28 year old actress recently hit facebook to snap back at her critics, stating that she’s happy that her statements are creating meaningful discussions, however she feels bullied and demands some respect for speaking her mind.
Keep your disrespectful, mean, hurtful, words in a diary for yourself. Personal attacking is not needed, and no matter what race, nationality, culture, or womb you came out of; strive for respect. Strive to be virtuous, so the conversation can lead to great things, other things.
