Colorless is the New Black: Does Wealth Misinform Black Celebs' Views on Race?


Recently actress Raven-Symon√© caught up with Oprah during a segment of Where Are They Now? Where she talked about how she’s been spending the bulk of her time from under the scrutiny of pop-culture’s critical eye.

But it was when the star started rambling about eschewing labels while addressing questions about her sexuality (and then, her racial identity), that the masses heard the sound of a record screeching to a halt.
