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 ...

If this is your reasoning, then why isn't she American?

Truth be told, if Halle didn't show/tell people her mother was white, then no one would be the wiser. When Halle looks in the mirror she sees a black women. She lives in a society that sees her as she sees herself. She lives in a society that (regardless of what some people think) still thinks and treats her differently based soley on the color of her skin. She works in Hollywood, an industry that caters to those for the most part who are white. Still to this day very seldom are roles written for people of color. Thank goodness for Spike Lee, John Singelton and the like, otherwise black folks would just about be non existent on the big screen. And if by chance there is a role for a black woman, there are always the same 5 or 6 vying for the same part when there are numerous roles for white actresses to chose from, the same goes for men. It's a pity that in this day and age there are still people who have to or feel the need to pass for white in order to get work. It's not just happening in Hollywood, it still happens in all facets of life.

Look Halle didn't do anything but state her reality, so people should really get off her back about it. It's understandable why the majority of white people don't get it. No matter what some people think, it's still much tougher being black in America and that is what Halle and her daughter is.

Halle is looking really bad here however you slice it. If the guy is such a racist WHY WAS SHE WITH HIM LONG ENOUGH TO HAVE A CHILD?

Or she just figured it out? So she's really, really dense?

Halle, stop it. Black, white, whatever, you're going diving in the sewer here to come up with ways to vilify your ex. Just stop it.

And yes, the "One Drop Rule" is ironically as racist as you can get. She has to be really stupid however you see this issue.

In Halle's life, it has to be quite tiring being the victim all the time. She has had several failed relationships. But I do remember her stating before she dated this looser (like attracts like), was that she just wanted a child, without the relationship. She just wanted a sperm donor. I remember because that was the last time I took an interest in her. Her last man was a "sex addict". whatever. Believe me, she is no victim

Excuse me.. Ever heard of Bi-Racial? Smh
This is what's wrong with this country. Since you're half black I know you got the talk before about white men. Don't sit up here and make it seem like he doesn't want to claim that the child is black. If what Gabriel thinks is true, then you and him need some type of biology lesson and an appointment with a psychologist. This should be the LEAST of your worries when it comes to your child. Smh

First of all this is kind of crazy? We all have been subjected to a rule, made at a terible time in our history! Made to hold a race of people back, Human beings, we all are and no matter what a rule say's fact is fact and there is know way to denigh or change what race you are. We must embrace all of who we are, Black, White, Asian? yes many black people have asain ancestry and don't even know it. If we are going to make judgements about race it should be to love one another as the Human race period. I don't pray and say Amen anymore, I say Allmen. 1 LOVE!

What is up with all of these out of touch biracial dummies and delusional white people?

Halle Berry is a black woman, we're all mixed up and exotic looking in my family. However, that is the trait of being a Black born in America. We're a very diverse culture of people.

At the end of the day, the white people didn't want to claim us and it's "n-word this and n-word that" behind closed doors at the dinner table, so what damn difference does it make?!

You've got to be out of your mind if you have ever believed white people would ever coin ANY person with a 1/4 of Black blood as a white citizen! What American birth certificate have you seen this on?! Don't worry, I'll wait......

This child is more white than black, she even looks white. The one drop rule goes back to a time that most blacks want to move forward from, then you have this nutjob bringing those ridiculous rules back just to fit her self. If she doesn't want to call the child white, which by the way is more correct than the other, then call her mixed, which she is. Race is not determined by the race of the mother, that is ridiculous, Halle is mixed herself. It seems to me that Halle is more racist than what she claims the father is, otherwise she wouldn't care that her daughter is called white when she is in fact majority caucasion. PERIOD!

Regardless of what you people think, society as a whole is going to consider her Black. If she resides in an all white neighborhood, she's going to be considered Black, if she goes to an all white school, she's going to be considered Black. This is reality, you people act like this is a perfect world and it is not. Unfortunately Halle is right, and she can say this because she's been there. It's easy for you all that are white to sit back and act like this is not reality, Blacks are still being treated differently because of the color of their skin but what amazes me you all can go get tans, plump up your lips, silicone your butts, get cheek implants and have features just like most Black people.

I agree, shouldn't be a story but it is reality. That little girl will have to face that reality not you. Halle should have thought about who she was lying down with before creating a child. These single women having babies, without wanting to be married causes problems for the child. It's a selfish attitude.

They are both right becuase the baby is mixed and she is only about 20% black. Halle is stupid she's not even all the way black she's mixed too. She shouldn't have even said this to begin with....why bring up race when you know you were making a mixed child to begin with. How black can the child be when she is mixed herself? She knew she was laying down with a white blond blue eyed man...and she's claiming her kid is all the way black????To me Nahla looks more like Gabriel anyway. She has his face.

I am a multi-racial adult and I was always told that I'm multi-racial growing up during all the turmoil of 60's, 70's. My child is multi-racial as well. They are both foolish! The child is mixed, bi-racial.

The thing no one is looking at his Halle Berry's history with men. David Justice, she maligned him after they broke up b/c he was cheating she said he was having sex with men. Eric Bene, she said he was a sex monster and required treatment. Every man she has been serious with after she has broken up with them has told everyone that they were "bad" men. This is no different
