#Disney Channel A post shared by Disney Channel PR (@disneychannelpr) on got the chance to chat with Raven and she revealed to us why she chose to have Raven and Devon get married just to have them breakup."I was a part of that decision to have Devon as Raven's ex-husband," Raven-Symoné dished."Everyone was torn with the decision — who should it be? "They were high school sweethearts, but things change.Will these brown skinned multi-racial/multi-ethnic people still be perceived as African-American? After all, part of the struggle of marginalized groups is to fight for the right to decide, for ourselves, who we are and what we are to be called as opposed to having labels, stereotypes and descriptors forced upon us.Personally, I identify with the term African American (no hyphen) because it speaks to my family’s history in this country.I am descended from Africans who were slaves in this country.My great-grandfather was a sharecropper in Mississippi.When people call all brown-skinned people African-American. If you are going to use a label, at least be precise.
The album peaked at number 159 on the Billboard 200.
Perhaps they identify as Afro-Cuban, Afro-Caribbean, African, Black American, or simply Black for various reasons.
Some multi-racial/multi-ethnic people of color choose not to label themselves at all because there is not one label that can encompass all of their identity. However, how other people see them and choose to categorize them should have no effect on how they choose to self-identify.
During 2003 to 2006, she participated in four soundtracks from Disney, RIAA-certified double-platinum album, The Cheetah Girls (2003), RIAA-certified gold album, That's So Raven (2004), That's So Raven Too!
