ABC's "The View" - Season 18Actress Raven Symone is one of the trending topics on social media today and the reason is for her geography mishap.

While talking with E! NewsAlicia Quarles, the That’s So Raven alum talked about her ancestry but she seemed a bit confused about ‘continents’ and ‘countries’…and the difference between them.

She said:

“I never said I wasn’t black, I said I wasn’t African American — to me, that’s a difference. Thank you to for sending me my DNA test. I am from every continent in Africa except for one and I’m also from every continent in Europe except for one.

We are a melting pot of beauty. We have to embrace the different cultures we have. And if you don’t, we’re still gonna have these problems that are blasting up everywhere. And call me hippie, call me a free-thinker, call me someone that’s looking for a better life, but I wanna be in a better world.”

While Alicia Quarles seemed not to notice the slip, the internet has not been so kind.
