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.

  1. I think she has every right to say that Nahla is Black. After all she does have brown skin. It's pale but brown and so it would only make sense that she would identify her with being Black. Now is she turned out like Mariah Carey that might be a different story.

    I've seen a lot of Black people getting offended by what she said and for the life of me I don't know why they're offended. Do they not want Halle Berry to classify her child as Black? It's just mind boggling to me. I say when you have some Black in you and you look more Black than the other race you have that option to go either way.

    Black people aren't getting offended with Barack Obama and he's biracial as well. His kids are classified as Black too when they're really mixed like he is. I think there are bigger issues going on and people could be arguing about world peace or something important.

    There is NO SUCH THING as a 'Light Skinned Black' person.
    .
    The term is a racist oxymoron created by Racial Supremacists.
    .
    The 'black-lineage degrading', racist 'One-Drop Rule' was
    BANNED in the United States in 1967 via the 'Loving' case.
