Petition created to remove Raven Symoné from TV

People are sick and tired of Raven Symoné! Since joining The View Miss. Symoné has seen her fan base plummet. Her comments about not hiring people with ethnic names, and most recently the statement she made about the teen who was assaulted by an officer in the Spring Valley, was the last straw. The public agrees, she has to go! 

A petition was created requesting Barbra Walters to remove Raven Symoné from the opinionated panel of women on the daily talk show. It reads:
"Raven Symone has been spouting her ignorant and self hating spiel on the view for Long enough, from stating that she wouldn’t hire somebody for having a ghetto name, to openly complaining about reverse racism, the final straw was her comment about the recent viral video of the school police officer assaulting the student, where Raven Symone said “get off your phone in school then.”
African Americans and black people around the diaspora need a voice representative of their views and not a voice representative of what white people want us to say. We need strong black role models in prominent positions on television and Raven Symone cannot provide that. That is why I ask that we petition to remove her from “The View.”" 
Since its creation last Wednesday it has gained nearly 85K signatures and counting!
