You can call Lark Voorhies a lot of things, just don’t call her African-American. The troubled Saved by the Bell star made the declaration on Instagram over the weekend, posting an image of herself with the following caption:

“No, I am not black. I am American! I was born in America. I was not born in Africa, therefore I am not african. Africans are not african-americans! LV”

Well, alrighty then. Lark, or at least someone pretending to be Lark, explained her statement in an additional IG post, writing:

“Typical Media/America brainwashing the innocent and naive. Last time I checked, and correct me if I’m wrong, but black is the color of a crayon, and a tire. I am neither of those! I am of brown decent. The politically incorrect term, African-American is a total misnomer. I technically cannot be split into two continents with no specific nation to claim. I’m indigenous to the land that ‘they’ stole and renamed America. #ImNotBlack #ImNotAfricanAmerican Were you guys aware, that Jesse Jackson coined the coined the term African-American? $$$ #TheMoreYouKnow. LV.”

And there you have it. What WE do not have however is legitimate proof that the account these messages are being attributed to is legit since Voorhies does not have a validated Twitter or IG profile.
