Ferguson, Mo protester DeRay McKesson spoke out on Raven’s views on Twitter and chided the actress for her remarks. McKesson tweeted:

Isaiah Washington quickly weighed in on McKesson’s comments and claimed he was “no black”. The former Grey’s Anatomy star remarked:

Very interesting. While Washington is right, you can’t get a travelling visa to visit, “black”, you sure can get stopped by the police for being one. Soon McKesson and Washington, who stars on The CW series, The 100, had an interesting conversation on identifying as Black in America. Check out some of the tweets below.
