Halle's Race War with Gabriel:

Our Daughter IS Black

2/8/2011 11:00 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Halle Berry says it point blank ... her daughter is Black -- a direct message to her ex Gabriel Aubry who, according to sources, "went nuts" anytime someone called Nahla Black.

Halle says in an upcoming interview with EBONY magazine, "I feel she's Black. I'm Black and I'm her mother, and I believe in the one-drop theory." The one-drop rule was used during segregation to describe anyone who wasn't 100% Caucasian.

As TMZ first reported, sources connected with the former couple say Gabriel insists Nahla is White.

Truth is, they're both sorta right ... and both sorta wrong.

So, we gotta ask ...

The one drop rule was created by a bunch of ignorant white supremists. Why is she letting bigots decide the race of her child? This is 2011 Halle, this whole black vs. white issue is so 50 years ago.

They're, not their...this is the third time this week you've failed on the grammar front, TMZ. I especially cringed when you said that the cost of NFL port-a-potties was "gastronomical."

It's time to fire your copy editor.

Halle you need to STOP before you lose all your credibility. The story a few days ago you leaked (to make Gabriel look bad) said he was irate anytime a media source said your daughter was black - but there has NEVER been a media source that stated your daughter was black.
If he has a problem with it, he wouldn't have put his weiner inside YOU. So stop being stupid. You used to be too classy for crap like this. You're just going to make people feel sorry for Gabriel. (For evidence, see Mel Gibson vs. Oxsana).

I consider the baby white since the father is 100% white and the mother is 50% white which would make the baby 75% white 25% black. The baby is more white then black which means it's white.

This is the silliest thing to argue over LOL Really? The both of them are idiots ~ hopefully that's not an inherited trait you pass down to your child! Didn't the two of you notice earlier that one of you is Black and the other is White? What did you think your child was going to be? Of course she will be both! How about not black or white, instead raise her to be a beautiful human being. Who hopefully can embrace both of her parents races, cultures and traditions with no labels attached. How embarrassed is she going to be when she's an adult reading this stupid exchange between her parents. I'm already embarrassed for her. Grow up, both of you.

They are both nuts. The child is 50% white and %50 black which makes her both black and white.

wow ew    

I have always admired Halle Berry and looked up to her as a fellow biracial human being but saying she BELIEVES IN THE One drop rule is the LOWEST OF THE LOW! Does she think she would have gotten as far as she did in her career if she were a 100 percent african american woman?? HIGHLY DUBIOUS! It's one thing to be proud of your black heritage but it's another to FULLY REJECT another heritage, (YOUR WHITE ONE) just because other blacks have fully convinced you to do so! (Whatever her reason may be) What would her WHITE MOTHER SAY?? I'm biracial and proud of it! It doesnt make me better than black people to admit i'm half white, it makes me better because i am not afraid to say so. Oh yea, I hate to break it to you Miss Berry, YOUR DAUGHTER, NAHLA is 3/4th WHITE. She's more white than black genetically. Let's wait and see how your grand kids come out. Good luck finding a man who puts up with your ****ed up view of race and black and mixed culture.

In fifteen years, maybe sooner, she'll be able to reason for herself what kind of mental midgets her parents were.

wow ew    

And if Gabriel were really racist, if Halle had one ounce of dignity in you would have never dated him let alone have a child with him. IMO there is nothing more disturbing than a racist partner in life when you are not. I mean a full blown racist.

Halle is mixed...white mom....so her daughter is like a quarter black...but who should care? She's a beautiful little girl with ridiculous parents using the media, and most likely rumours fueled by the media, to fight a dirty custody battle. Both need to go behind closed doors, with lawyers and settle things legally...not through the media.

Halle Berry has clearly been somewhat bonkers and is one of those half white black people who seem to be the most racist...always thinking about race first. I still remember her cry fest Oscar speech going on and on and on about being black and then they cut to her white mother in the audience. Halle...get over it...yer half white. Be proud...and be proud of your white daughter....stop being so RACIST !
