Halle Berry has said she considers her daughter Nahla, who is at the centre of a bitter custody battle, to be 'black'.
Her comment emerged a week after the fight between Berry and her ex boyfriend Gabriel Aubry over the two-year-old turned ugly.

A really ungrateful wench!
Do or say anything to get that racism in.
If a white person expressed this theory, they would be branded a racist and banished forever from polite society and the media.
Black is the new white.
If Berry is half black and half white and her man was 100% white that makes the offspring what? 3/4 white according to my in-house math genius (who is as smoking hot as Berry is).
Halle is an idiot. Just like David Justice.
“When people in Atlanta see a black man in an expensive car, they assume he is a drug dealer or the car is stolen.”
Race seems to obsess these people.
Keep it simple, Halle. The baby is a kid that needs parents (plural) and preferably a male and a female with the only other stipulations they are loving and caring. Color has zip to do with anything.
I consider that beautiful little girl a human being who deserves so much more than the two freaks she has as parents.
Halle is a racist!
Racist Halle Berry, welcome to the club and goodbye.
Mind boggling idiocy.
Why do so-called celebs, who are half white and half black, raised by their Caucasian mothers, always identify with the negro father that abandoned them?
Now her daughter is three quarters Caucasian, yet this nitwit mother considers her negro?
Oh, never mind. who gives a $hit.
Got a problem with your daughter being half white, Halle? Maybe her bf left her for a white woman?
I wondered how her mother felt. Probably like a slap in the face.
She’s down with the struggle. Being white is so boring and victimless.
How the heck did that happen?
>>>>I haven’t abandoned them because I’ve had a child with a man outside of my race<<<<
Your half white and you had a baby with a white man, so how in the hell do you figure you had a baby OUTSIDE your race? Poor kid has an idiot for a mother.
Why is it when liberal black folks get successful, they go and marry a whitey?
“... but I’ve always had to embrace my mother and the white side of who I am, too.”
Had to? Her mother raised her. She HAD to? Damn!
I gave seen this and have never understood it. Had to. Had she been conceived by a black woman, she probably would have been an abortion.
The Race Card: the all-purpose card- “don’t leave home without it”.
No doubt she’s getting “advice”.
I guess I’ll cancel my order for a Halle Berry Real Doll now.
I guess. One day her negro daughter will grow up and watch Monster’s Ball. She’ll also look at her own father and grandmother and wonder why her mom is such a racist.
“Mom, why do you hate negro men. All I see is you sleeping with and hanging out with white people.” Snicker.
re: “.... but I’ve always had to embrace my mother and the white side of who I am, too....”
Wow, she ‘had’ to. I bet that makes her Mom feel appreciated. Halle has issues with men (can’t keep one) and her own sense of self. One should not have to decide on a race. It isn’t an either / or situation unless there are gains to be realized.
Halle must have decided it was in her bests interests to be a beautiful black woman rather than a beautiful white woman.
So being a slut isn’t so sexy afterall.
Pray for America
Not only is she a racist, she’s an idiot. Her daughter is about as black as I am. (I’m Irish and German) and I see she likes white men, and chose one to father her daughter, what does she expect from the child? A black child from a white man and half white mother?? Really?
It’s about “victimhood”.
Which color best represents “victimhood”, white or black? Which color gets more sympathy in court cases?
What the heck is that supposed to mean?
Bigot much there, Halle?
Was that at her Oscar acceptance speech?
Here in the South, there used to be pages and pages of very detailed laws relating to people of “mixed” heritage.
The consignment of these statutes to the ash-heap of history was viewed as a great stride forward during the Civil Rights struggle of the mid-20th Century.
Interesting that this line thinking is slowly re-emerging among those who so greatly deplored it not that long ago.
Halle, have you read the news lately? Get OVER yourself.
No. It was at a talk show. Might have been Oprah. But, can’t remember.
Democrats back then were obsessed with just having an ounce of "slave blood" and are still obsessed with that today!
If Halle Berry weren’t half-black, she never would have won her Affirmative Action Oscar.
let me explain to all on this thread why she sees her self as “black”. From the moment she walked out her front door she was identified as black, when she was in elementary school she was “black”, she was “black” in high school. Thousands of moments taught her who others thought she was. Her culture labeled her and she accepted/acknowledged/embraced the label. If she passed you in the grocery store you would think “wow, that is a beautiful black women”.
As far as her daughter, I would suppose like all mothers, she wants her child to be what she is.
What superficial nonsense. Who the heck cares what color she is. She’s a kid who needs to be nurtured, loved and cherished.
One of my daughters works in the admissions office of a fairly large university. She says when an app comes in and they evaluate for ethnicity the other girls who are black have a habit of saying “any black is all black”. With all this nonsense they’re doing one hell of a job of creating racists.
or the new term Blended-Race Guilt.
I was astonished by that same fact. The laws that used to say ONE DROP of black blood made one black were struck down and considered racist. NOW people like Berry denounce half of their blood line and INSIST that a pale skinned, blonde haired child is black if there is any percentage of black blood? It would be funny if it were not so sad.
Why is she labeling her daughter? Will she consider the daughter a racist if, when she’s old enough to decide what she considers herself, she considers herself white?
Is there some unwritten rule that says she MUST be black if there is that ‘one drop’?
Oh, no... not “Iron Balls” McGinty!
Racism is ignorant and evil.
The soul which is the real person is neither black nor white.
She’s identifying with the clothes only.
It’s beyond stupid.
One hopes that it will get better with time, but I don't know.... there's still a heck of a lot of history to work through.
During the years of racial oppression in America there were various stereotypes of blacks: emotional, not able to think abstractly, impulsive and undisciplined, etc. These were used to keep blacks down.
Today various idiotic afrocentrists use exactly the same stereotypes, but claim they make blacks superior rather than inferior. The whole sun people vs. ice people nonsense.
And Halle, your baby is 1/4 black. I believe the folk down south call that a quadroon. Oh, wait, is that racist?
My guess is that Halle Berry has experienced relatively little rejection by whites in her life for being part black, and that instead her troubles with “fitting in” have come more from blacks, who are suspicious and resentful of her being part white. If this is true, then you can see why she would want her daughter to be “black”: the daughter won’t be penalized for it by white people, and it will help assuage the resentment of blacks who would otherwise completely reject her as a turncoat if she identified as “white”. So a black identity will allow her daughter to have social acceptance among both whites and blacks rather than just whites.
This kind of lunacy only occurs where the black father has abandoned the child, which creates bitter, angry, race-obsessed people like Halle Berry and Obama.
When dad sticks around the children are very different, tending to be well-adjusted and comfortable in their own shoes.
The woman is forever the victim in every single relationship she's been in. And now, she's teaching her daughter how to be a victim.
I swear I hope Gabrielle Aubrey gets custody of that child.
