Disney star Raven-Symone’ has a very closed mind, on Thursday, the women of “The View” shared their opinions on the study, and of course, the show’s resident troll Raven-Symoné had the most to say on the subject.
“Just to bring it back, can we take back ‘racist’ and say ‘discriminatory,’ because I think that’s a better word. And I am very discriminatory against words like the ones that they were saying in the video. I’m not about to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea. It’s just not going to happen. I’m not going to hire you.”
In other words, if your mom decided to name you Shaniqua or DaQuan, you don’t deserve to be gainfully employed because a decision that your parents likely made before you even took your first breath tells employers everything that they need to know about your work ethic and capabilities.
Thankfully, someone on the panel had enough sense to point out that there’s probably not a single person walking this earth who had control over what their parents decided to name them. But of course, it went right over Raven’s head.
“Is that mean?” she asked as if she found the entire conversation to be hilarious.
Ma’am, let me remind you as you’re perched at ABC’s round table week after week that had God not blessed you with a successful career in entertainment, there’s a good chance that you would be out here applying to nine-to-five gigs like the rest of us. And let me assure you that if a hiring manager as biased as yourself came across your résumé with Raven-Symoné Pearman plastered across the top of it, there’s a good chance that you wouldn’t be hired, or even called in to interview, either.
Since Rave-Symone’ has com out to the world regarding her preference in women, she has been extremely vocal when the subject matter is controversial. Just because a parent names their child, LaKresha, Antoinyetta or Bingo, the names doesn’t make the person, its just a name. She is being biased and I’m getting to the point where I’m not liking her. She’s very talented, she has her own businesses, she is out spoken and she keeps it real. Don’t be so closed minding because that Quinnetta you hire could be your best employee.
