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 ...

Truth is he never went "nuts" every time that she was called black. I'd like to know under what context she was referred to as "Black".

"Oh, what a cute little black girl" ?
"And on the celebrity baby front, Nahla, the beautiful black child of Halle B...."
"Wow, Gabriel, that's a cute black baby you have".

PLEASE. It never happened. She's spinning this out of control with lies.

EXACTLY!!! I feel that we have lost visibility of the fact that Nahla NEVER would have been refered to as "black" in any publication. Halle is a racist.

The federal government used the one drop theory. There are a lot of Halle haters for some reason. Wonder why? Up until recently if one parent was black and the other another race then Black is what went on the birth certificate. It is only in recent years that bi-racial has come into play as far as the government was concerned.

Truthfully, Tony, IF YOU WERE ACTUALLY A PROUD, "WELL ADJUSTED" BLACK PERSON, IT WOULDN'T MATTER WHAT PERCENTAGE OF BLACK ANCESTRY YOU HAVE. YOU'RE SIMPLY TAKING WHAT SHE SAID OUT OF CONTEXT TO SUIT YOUR OWN TWISTED AGENDA. YOU SEEM TO BE THE ONE WITH A "RACIAL" IDENTITY PROBLEM -- NOT HALLE BERRY!!!

Halle Berry stated to a media outlet, without being stopped, that she is going to spread racial disharmony as much as she is allowed. It would seem her voice of racial hatred has many an ear bended.

If you're placing yourself in a postion to be treated unfairly then move. I have. My ancestors have. All of my people have removed themselves from the grip of tyranny. You should seek your own freedom from the injustice you claim keeps you from being free.

There are other lands on this planet, seek them out. If you'd rather change a clerical error then do so.

It's been said the constitution of the United States is do***ent of slavery. Who were the slaves?

If Halle Berry was white and wanted everyone to call her baby "white baby" but the father was black, would you still agree with halle Berry?

Nubian King or what ever he is...Where in you great knowledge of human origins did it every discribe the color of skin for first humans...I will tell you NO WHERE !!!! And all humans coming out of africa ...thats just one theory of evolution ONE not the only one so that kind of shots your theory in its a*s.

You want to believe in something that makes you feel superior to the rest of the human race you go right ahead does it make you right.....Hell No.....


The only reason this woman is using the race card is she thinks it will get her sole custudy of that child....She knows when to use it cause she's done it all her life... Every man she has ever been with and they have been ,black,white and red ...when she is over them she uses the abuse card and or the race card...this ain't her first rodeo.

Good thing she's an actress. I don't think any career where "pretending" is required would work for her, since she seems to be fantasizing as it is regarding her race and her daughter's. Ugh. TMZ, you outta do a post as a shout out to Hallie, helping her come to terms with her mixed ethnicity. What say you, Harv?

^^^^ Spoken like the typical racist. Thankfully, the days of White people getting shafted to "help those of color are over. You've arrived. Try to clean up after yourselves and not make such a messs. Work. Yeeeeaahhhh, know wha' I's be sayin?"

Are you saying that for the past 80 years 20 million black Americans lived on government welfare, goverment food and lived on low rent government housing with no jobs because white people felt bad about slavery?

20 million black Americans were unemployed for nearly 80 years, paid NO taxes and lived in special buildings the tax payers built to house them. Seggrgation? It was terrible. I lived in one of those buildings. I ate free government food. I watched drug dealers buy fancy cars and clothes while they used food stamps. I got out. No one helped me.

It's different now. If you're black in this country you can go enlist at 18 years old and come back in 6 months to a 2 million government grant to start your own bussiness. Can't do that if you're white. There is no 2 milliow dollar grant if you're white.

Wow! Why do they both put so much energy into the race issue! It's SICK! If Halle is so obsessed with identifying with the black community she should have had an african male impregnant her in the first place! This is disgusting. To steep this low. I would never have thought this of her.

SHE is the one putting energy into this. HE is not fighting a mediatic war.
