Raven-Symon├â┬⌐ Offers Support To Rachel Dolezal Amidst NAACP Resignation: ‘I Love Her’

raven symone supports transracial woman

It’s all about the love!

On Tuesday, Raven-Symoné issued her support for Rachel Dolezal following her NAACP resignation.

She shared:

“I love her. Listen, we can’t judge anybody. We don’t know that person’s life. We’re only getting bits and pieces.”

Hmm, very inneresting!

On Monday, the Spokane NAACP chapter president stepped down after her parents revealed that she lied about her ethnicity.

Since then, Dolezal has come forward stating that she identifies as black — despite being born Caucasian. This fact has lead Raven and her View co-host, Whoopi Goldberg, to compare her to another high-profile celebrity.

She continued:

“I agree with Whoopi. It’s reminiscent of Caitlyn Jenner and many other transgender people…Hey, do it. I know a lot of people in other cultures want to be in other cultures… straighten their hair… fill in their lips. Everyone’s trying to find their way to fit in.”

This a very different opinion that her fellow celebrities have taken since the scandal broke. Montel Williams, in particular, has harshly criticized Rachel for her deception.

Aside from the support, the former Disney darling made sure to offer the “transracial” woman some advice.

She quipped:

“One thing I would tell Rachel? Hashtag #TellRachel? Girl, I got a better foundation for you… I know what it’s like, I gotta go dark too.”

HA! That’s so Raven — a thing to do!

What do you think?! Do you agree with the View host?
