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 ...

Halle makes history winning the Oscar by saying and thinking she is just black.. Again her ego at work... Your mother must
be so proud of you since you deny her existence and where you
came from.. You are the real racist to deny your daughters
white French Canadian heritage. I find it amusing that you only recognize your black heritage of your father.. Wasn't he an abuser that tortured your life and your mother's. Again, no history made in your industy if you recognize you are white too.
She is just trying to push all of Gabriel's buttons to try to
get him to respond in the press with something negative. Hoping
to make herself look less foolish and despised with all the things she has said to the press.
Halle, quit opening your mouth your ignorance is showing.

************************CORRECTED POST**************************

I have no problem with Halle Berry referring to her daughter as "Black" because we don't live in a "color blind" society and "race" is still an immense issue among too many people, period!!! Anyone who still believes otherwise, isn't being completely honest about the society in which we live. Both Halle and Gabriel work in professions in which a considerable bias against "PEOPLE OF COLOR" is prevalent. She's only acknowledging a reality that she, herself, deals with on a daily basis. Perhaps, she should have chosen a "sperm donor" in which she had considerably more in common with intellectually, culturally and professionally. Just because Gabriel Aubry fathered a child with Halle Berry doesn't mean he was compatible with her on many levels which is probably the reason why they went their separate ways.

Why does it have to be about black and white? Can't both settle on their daughter being a beautiful little girl?

If I'm not mistaken, It was Halle's mother who encouraged her to acknowledge the realities of her biracial heritage. She has never impressed me as being "ashamed" of her parentage. She's only embracing the reality in which she's experienced. Just because her daughter has a much "lighter" complexion, doesn't mean she won't have to deal with the ugliness of racism.

THIS situation should NEVER even have RACE brought into it! This is about a little girl who was conceived and brought into this world out of love! Both of these parents and their handlers need to get a grip and STOP TALKING! The father has every right to be legally recognized with an appropriate legal visitation schedule! Nothing more, nothing less! PERIOD!

Halle Berry if you want to be angry at someone for the color of your skin then you need to take that up with your mommy and your daddy, leave the innocent kids alone. If you have a different kind of problem with the color of other peoples skin then you need to be removed from your position of "cultural hero".

It's sad that their daughter will deal with racism from both white and black people.
