    Remember Olivia from the Crosby show.

    Well, she is all grown up and has come out with a great statement.

    In fact, Raven tells Oprah that she rejects the notion of labels completely in all areas of her life. "I'm tired of being labeled," she says. "I'm an American. I'm not an African-American; I'm an American."
