That’s…so wrong. Raven Symone is confused. While talking with E! News’ Alicia Quarles, the That’s So Raven alum talked about her ancestry, but unfortunately, she seems to misunderstand the definition of “continent” versus “country.”

“I never said I wasn’t black, I said I wasn’t African American — to me, that’s a difference,” the Atlanta, Ga., native told Quarles, before giving Ancestory.com an epic shoutout.

“Thank you to ancestry.com for sending me my DNA test,” she started. “I am from every continent in Africa except for one and I’m also from every continent in Europe except for one,” she said, without even questioning what she had just said. 

An equally unfazed Quarles continued on with the conversation, but the Internet, naturally, didn’t fail to notice the snafu.
