Actress Raven-Symoné appeared on "Oprah: Where Are They Now?" and sat down with Oprah for a candid conversation on how she's managed to lead a healthy, balanced life as a former child star.
The conversation touched on many things including Raven's thoughts on her sexual and racial identities. Raven told Oprah that though she is currently in a relationship with a woman, she finds both men and women attractive and rejects a "gay" identity. "I don't need language," she explained. "I don't need a categorizing statement for it...I don't want to be labeled gay."
And from there she went to discuss her disdain for racial labels. "I'm an American. I'm not an African-American. I'm an American," she said.
She went on. "I don't know where my roots go to...I do know that my roots are in Louisiana. I'm an American, and that's a colorless person because we're all people."
