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 ...

First off if she is fighting with him over race then obviously he did something very offending towards black people and she is trying to prove a point that the kid has black in her. He is wrong and I believe he acts racist towards her.

Oh I see- Halle is 50% black, 50% white, but 100% racist.
We can only hope that both parent's "idiot gene" sequence didn't transfer to that child.

Nahala is black anytime a child is mixed and they have black in them they are black. yeah! they features and skin maybe light but thats it. I dont blame Halle Berry a bit but these are the consequences have you to deal with inner racial couples. If Gabriel can deal with that to bad.

I have disliked Halle Berry since she won her oscar for Monsters Ball.

in her acceptance speech she made a big racial issue of her win ...

She sounds like a total nutcase diva with this custody issue ... "I'm her mother so she's mine!" That little girl is 1/2 the father and he should have equal say in her upbringing and 1/2 custody.

halle is a beautiful lady and great actress. her mother is 100% white, halle 50% white, baby daddy 100% white, baby is 75% white and this is 2011, what difference does it make? sounds like this issue is made up, to keep daddy from having access to his child.

I grew up in the 60's/70's. Good God, people, I thought we put all this crap to rest then but all you people keep bringing it back up again. We're black and we're white and it DOESN'T MATTER! Everybody just quite b**ching and go live your lives.

SAD and RACIST that Halle believes in the "one drop" theory -I feel bad for little Nahla that her mother will raise her with this theory

it was RACIST a hundred years ago to subscribe to that theory and it's racist today..I don't care if the person is black, white or "mulatto" like Halle.. if they believe this then they are continuing with the old racist ways

Nahla is 1/4 black and 3/4 white so why would her mother or anyone else label her anything- let alone black!

Gabriel isn't racist

Halle has her own racist ideas it seems that she is now intent imposing on her daughter-maybe that's how her mother chose to or felt she had to to raise her to get along 40 years ago

but it's a more enlightened world now and we don't need people like Halle Berry perpetuating an old/false RACIST standard

if we go by Halle's theory- THEN WE ARE ALL BLACK!!

when you look at DNA proof that human beings began in East Africa two hundred thousand years ago and "Mitochondrial Eve" was the first mother of all homo sapiens..we all have one drop or more of African blood!

Halle needs to educate herself and not raise her child in ignorance but instead in enlightenment to celebrate the unique human being she is...and not the unique black child!!

then again...that's just my opinion

Halle is: 1/2 black & 1/2 white.

Gabriel is: 100% (or 1/1 white)

So......

Their daughter is 1/4 black, 3/4 white.

Lol, and Christ Rock is a pure racist saying, "Being half-black is like being half pregnant." This insinuates that white is equal to nothing. That's pretty racist of both Halle & Chris. And yes, black folks can be racist!

FYI, I'm neither black nor white. :)

I believe that you have taken what Chris Rock said completely out of context. He grew up like many of us before any "biracial" category was widely acknowledged on any official do***ents. Whenever you had to complete any official paperwork before the 1980's and 1990's, you were either "Black" or "White", there was NO "BIRACIAL" CATEGORY. A woman in Louisiana about 30 years ago sued the state because they listed her race on her birth certificate as "Negro" rather than "White" because she had married a "White" man and was trying to pass for "White". She lost her case. Although her parents may have been "passe blanc" or "mixed" they were still considered "Black" which made her a "Black" child. Back in the day, there was no "middle" ground because American society was and still is to a significant extent "RACIST".

She is going to be whatever her mother teaches her to be. Halle Berry is a racist bigot and her daughter will be a racist bigot as well.

This seems preety easy. She is a person and everything else shouldn't matter. They both need to grow up.
