The former “Cosby Show” and “That’s So Raven” star told Oprah Winfrey she’s tired of being labeled. “I’m an American. I’m not an African-American; I’m an American.” Oprah, clearly stunned by the comment, asked her to elaborate. “I mean, I don’t know where my roots go to,” said Raven. “I don’t know how far back they go…I […]
