Halle Berry: My Daughter is Black

This Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry custody battle is really turning ugly. You would think someone as private as Halle Berry would be a little classier and not air her dirty laundry in public, but clearly that's not the case here.

Halle, who has a white mother and an African American father, considers her own daughter to be full African American, even though Nahla’s father is French Canadian.

She said: “I'm not going to put a label on it. I had to decide for myself and that's what she's going to have to decide - how she identifies herself in the world.

Isn't it funny how she says she’s not going to be a label on it and continues by putting a label on it.

“And I think, largely, that will be based on how the world identifies her. That's how I identified myself. But I feel like she's black. I feel like she's black. I'm black and I'm her mother and I believe in the one-drop theory.”

How bout this silly little idea? Nahla is half-black and half-white? Just a thought!
