‘The View’ Co-Host Raven Symone Believes the Hashtag Should be ‘ALL Lives Matter!’



Actress Raven Symone has found another way to catch backlash from #BlackTwitter! “The View” co-host made a comment pertaining to the popular topic #BlackLivesMatter.

Check out what she said below!


Yesterday on “The View,” co-host Raven Symone made a comment defending Democratic Presidential candidate, Martin O’Malley! This past weekend at a rally, O’Malley made a stated that “All Lives Matter” while discussing police brutality against African-Americans. He received a wave full of “boos” and has since apologized for his statement.

Well, Ms. Symone couldn’t have agreed more with his statement! She didn’t believe the governor should have apologize, and that he was right that it should be ALL lives matter.

I understand what the ‘Black Lives Matter’ hashtag means. It came in conjunction with everything that was going on with the police in Ferguson. You have to be sensitive in that statement, but he is right, all lives matter… I think you have to open yourself up. It should be all lives matter.

However, the newest co-host Michelle Collins disagreed with Symone’s statement about the controversial hashtag.

Why re-appropriate something that was really such a powerful thing for the Black community, something that meant so much and still means so much?” she said challenging Symone. “It’s such a positive thing. Why make that about everybody? It’s not about everybody.

Symone believes that making that hashtag for blacks only, furthers the separatism our country. But like a lot of people state, “all lives matter, but it’s just the black ones that are dying!” Do you agree? Should “Black Lives Matter” need to be changed to “All?” Comment below!


  1. I totally agree with Michelle Collins, “Why re-appropriate something that was really such a powerful thing for the Black community”. It’s truly a positive thing!!! Why make it about everybody? It’s NOT about Everybody! Why Raven are you constantly trying to steal OUR glory! Besides, Raven I don’t expect you to understand since you distance yourself from Us Black people. So therefore you could never speak for Us or about Us as a Black person!!!! Please believe that Black people are the most forgiving HUMANS on this planet we call Earth! Try brushing up on Black History, you’ll have a better understanding and appreciation for Black Americans. Be Bless
