Dr Boyce Watkins: Raven Symone just needs to stop talking about race and racism


In this video, I talk about Raven Symone and her comments on “The View.” Raven recently made some comments about Harriet Tubman being on the 20 dollar bill. Symone doesn’t support Tubman’s appearance on the bill, and felt that Rosa Parks would be a better reflection of “the progression we’re making right now.”

Let’s ask ourselves: Why do we turn to black celebrities to speak on important issues in the black community? Maybe it’s time to stop doing that.
