Raven-Symone keeps finding herself in hot water every week as a host for “The View” because she has very polarizing views regarding the black community and current black issues.

The last time her mouth got her in trouble, she actually claimed she felt it is appropriate for people to not be hired based off their names.

And seeing as she has now managed to once again offend many in the black community over comments on the Spring Valley High situation, it’s no wonder a petition to get her removed from “The View” has gone viral.

    I don’t think she will get fired. She gets the show a lot of press sadly. If we all ignored her she’d go away.

    She’s a dumb a-s but they hired her for that reason alone. They haven’t had someone to rile people up like this since Elizabeth’s annoying a-s left.

    She won’t be let go but her mouth will surely do away with what little of a career she has left. It’s going to be hard to book other jobs later when the majority of the publicly finds you insufferable. That is why that conservative lady could only go to Fox News after she left.

    She’s annoying as f*ck and one of the worst sell-outs of all time, but is she really wrong for saying “get off your phone”? What that “officer” did was totally out of order and wrong as hell to that girl, but at what point do these kids in the schools need to respect the authority figures and school administration. Some of these kids are hell on wheels in these schools even the elementary level students. If your teacher asks you to put your phone away, put the sh*t away, period! Why be so disrespectful to the adult in the room, the teacher, by being defiant and unruly. In my day, if the teacher said put something away, you did it or suffered the consequences at school and at home.

      At the same time……that girl is going thru a lot. They said she was an orphan and pretty much a ward of the state…she was being defiant but she is acting out because she is a child who doesn’t have no family and no1 that loves her…she’s channeling that animosity and anger because of what she is going thru…they should’ve thought of another way how to handle her…and Raven needs to stfu…I’m sure people tell her to STFU daily but she is still talking tho so……

    Raven has a lot of sense in that instead of making excuses for inappropriate behaviors, she is expressing what many people, black, and white, are thinking. Be realistic. In many situations, it takes two to tango. The officer’s response was inappropriate based on the circumstances surrounding the attack. However, the student was testing patience by intentionally being disrespectful of herself, her student peers, as well as her teacher. Look at the facts involved. Those who ignorantly, bash Raven, are completely ignoring the message that is being said. Discrimination and racism as you call it, exists in EVERY culture. Don’t point the finger at others because you cannot understand those principles. Analyze both sides of the situation. This petition is ridiculous. The media, including this blog post is unfairly throwing Raven’s words out of context. Shame on you for reporting based on personal opinions. Raven is honest, bold, and has great common sense that many people sadly, lack. It would be disservice if she were to jump on the bandwagon.

      The f-ck? Raven is brave? LMAO! I guess all you sellouts gotta stick together. Y’all really walk around thinking y’all are special snowflakes and sh-t too. You’re not deep. You’re not intelligent, Raven isn’t intelligent and no y’all don’t have common sense. Y’all tap dance for white people and then wonder why y’all still end up with nothing but white c-m on your faces at the end of the day. F-ck Raven and f-ck her opinions. What happened with that little girl was police brutality and that’s why his dumb as-s was fired. For grown a-s blacks like yourself to actually justify police brutality makes me think y’all really feel y’all are too special for that sh-t to happen to you. You’re not. And no, it’s no ok that a black woman said she won’t hire someone with a name she feels is ghetto when she’s walking around here looking like a got damn cockatoo. I bet you’re just another confused black fool who really thinks you’re something special just like Raven. Sh-t c–ns have been around for decades. Some of y’all were Tommin’ while we on the plantation too. I’d rather be on the bandwagon with my people than surrounded by a race of people who only f-ck with me when I put down my own.

        “I’d rather be on the bandwagon with my people than surrounded by a race of people who only f-ck with me when I put down my own.” Bingo! I bet this person is Raven. Nobody with common sense and a working brain finds that vulture intelligent or brave. LOL.

        You don’t make any sense. You implying that I’m white. Many of the responses on this blog are inaccurate and out of sync with the message being said. You’re only supporting ignorance. “Seriously” isn’t a valid argument. You may say what you feel you is right to you. Placing limitations on growth and rationality isnt part of your world.

        • Seriously?

          October 30, 2015 at 8:05 pm

          LOL, girl what? Here’s a tip sweetheart: don’t use words you don’t understand. And FYI, Seriously is my commentator name on here. It’s not my response. Carry on though with your faux intelligence though. Like Raven, I’m sure your self esteem is dependent on how smart you can try to sound even though your lack of intelligence still shows in every word you actually speak and type (like Raven). You’re not fooling me or anyone else with a functioning brain and knowledge of proper grammar usage.

      First, I don’t think UB did anything wrong. Not once has Amanda ever said where she stands on any of this so you’re calling her out for what exactly? Reporting on the petition? That doesn’t make any sense.

      Secondly, how can you say that it’s intelligent for Raven to have the stance she has on the Spring Valley High situation? Essentially Raven is saying it’s ok to get violent with someone when they don’t do what you want them to do. That’s barbaric. So because you feel the young woman tested the cop’s patience, she deserved what she got? And you’re a woman? How unfortunate.

      And it’s interesting that you and Raven want to talk about how important it is to follow the rules when Raven is a gay woman. In some countries, being gay is against the rules and gay people are murdered for breaking said rules. So do they deserve the harsh punishments they receive for not following the rules? You can’t right a wrong with another wrong (not that I feel being gay is wrong). My dear, intelligence and common sense aren’t represented well in your arguments.

        Well said. Some people are so clueless but they swear they are the most intelligent person in the universe. Raven is merely another puppet in blackface. That’s why she was hired.

          Pick up a book and you will learn more than what you’ve been limiting yourselves on. Just as many people on these type of blogs don’t understand the purpose behind situations. You simply thwart a person’s words because you refuse to take a step back and analyze both sides than form a rational response and or opinion. You’re speaking on nothing but opinions. Hate fuels hate. Open your eyes. It’s not about who is right or wrong.

          • Seriously?

            October 30, 2015 at 8:08 pm

            Baby girl, I know you thrive off feeling like you’re smarter than everyone else, but until you pick up a thesaurus and dictionary and understand how to use the words you’re attempting to use in the correct context, you just need to hang it up because you’re not qualified to discuss anyone’s lack of intelligence and analytical skills. You’re really not that bright and neither is Raven.

        A person is assumed to be a certain race? Bigot and ignorance fuel those negative, ridiculous and baseless assumptions. I’m not white. For the last 30+yrs, I’m far from being any other ethnicity than my own. Your reply shows your ignorance.

    The young girl was wrong though. You can’t defy a police officer and expect them not to go off on you.

    I really think the people who defend Raven see themselves in her. I picked up on this when she got dragged for the whole ghetto names situation. It was people with ghetto names agreeing the most like she wasn’t even talking about them. They are a hypocritical and delusional mess just like Raven and that’s why they defend her.

      Delusional mess, isn’t the appropriate term. That is your opinion. In actualitty you fail to recognize the rest of the world and how many people strive to move out of their bubble that they’ve known for all their lives. I don’t blame those who think that the tactic of disregarding the truth that outspoken people speak. Close-mindedness sometimes can’t be cured.

  14. Seriously?

    October 30, 2015 at 8:17 pm

    Umm “actualitty” isn’t the appropriate term either. In fact, it’s not even a word. And those last two sentences are tragic. If you’re going to try to pretend to be an intellectual on the internet, you really, and I mean REALLY, need to take some grammar courses. You can’t just string words together and make them stick.
