'The View' host, and former star of the Disney Channel's 'That's So Raven' spoke out during the table's discussion about a new study that reveals Americans make racist assumptions about people based on their names. The program showed a video about the "60 most ghetto names," and Symone voiced her opinions.


“Just to bring it back, can we take back ‘racist’ and say ‘discriminatory,’ because I think that’s a better word,” Symoné said during the show. "And I am very discriminatory against words like the ones that they were saying in the video. I’m not about to hire you if your name is Watermelondrea. It’s just not going to happen. I’m not going to hire you."
