Those of us who grew up watching the Cosby Show will like this one very much if only because it involves a star, a beautiful star from that black family soap that broke almost all records in television show business, one of which was to show black people as wholesome, educated, thoughtful, funny and capable of acting as a family unit.
According to WDSfm, Raven-Symoné (Olivia in the Cosby Show) is rumored to be gay and the tabloids are apparently going after her to ferret out the truth. Yours truly is not concerned one way or the other if she is gay or now, but finds it exciting that yet another gorgeous, talented, black woman might be lesbian. Not to put too fine a point on it but … hope springs eternal.
Raven is not the only one in the tabloids’ cross-hairs. Robin Roberts, the ABC news anchor who snagged the recent interview with Barack Obama in which he came out in support of gay marriage is also rumored to be … a lesbian.
Yet another high achieving black woman is a lesbian? Oh, how one wishes that this were true!
To which I would shout out loud … free at last, free at last, thank God gay men and women are becoming free at last!
