Halle Berry Believes in the One-Drop Rule

A recent rumor popped up that Gabriel Aubry is insistent on people not calling his baby black, but white. People took this to mean he was a racist but maybe he just thinks his baby is mixed.

Whatever the case. Halle Bery feels differently. In an upcoming interview for EBONY magazine, Halle says her baby is black because of the one-drop rule. “I feel she’s Black. I’m Black and I’m her mother and I believe in the one-drop theory.” TMZ explains the one-drop rule was used during segregation to describe anyone who wasn’t 100% Caucasian.

Technically Halle Berry is only half-black. But if we were to follow the one-drop rule, you could apply it to everyone and because of evolution we’d be whatever color we started out as. Unless there’s a percentage rule to the one-drop theory. Like, if you’re less than 25% black, you’re not really black. I guess what I’m trying to say is don’t ever go up to the black kids at your school and tell them evolution means you’re black too and that makes you — in a baritone voice — “down with the brothas” because they’re going to laugh at you and might even kick your ass.

I love how she brought all of this up to accuse her ex of being a racist, but now she’s the one making racist remarks. Why is she so insistent that her baby is black?

this dumb bitch is the worst, i’m really getting entirely SICK of her! she herself is only half black which makes her baby only a quarter black! why do these people- ie obama, berry, etc ONLY identify with their vastly inferior black half?! if i were unfortunate enough to have any negro heritage, i would bury that knowledge as deep as i could, run away from it completely. i certainly would not be bragging or identifying with it- GROSS!!! …. PS in the picture above she looks like a ‘sleestak’ from the 70’s TV series ‘land of the lost’

To whoever u are. First off ur a racist.” i would bury that knowledge as deep as i could, run away from it completely. i certainly would not be bragging or identifying with it- GROSS!!! …” doesnt make any sense . The white people in the first place invented the one drop theory, and society has come to identify people with it. Even as late as the 60s there was still mass segregation so dont make it sound like its a far fetched idea. Its Halle’s child and not yours so shut it. I am black and I am proud… Read more »

How come if you’re 1/100th Negro you are considered “Black?” Obama is 1/2 white! Why is he the 1st “Black” Prez? He’s 1/2 white! WHAT THE FUCK? I’m claiming that mulatto motherfucker for the white race…

Correction: The one-drop rule was codified into law by US Supreme Court Justices in the Pelessy v Ferguson case. The truth is (which will never be know because whites are in constant denial of history) we are ALL part black. The oldest known civilizations of the world originated in Africa. The origin of mitochondrial DNA was traced back to a black woman. You can mate two black people and get a light-skinned person but you can’t mate two white people and get a dark sinned person. This is simple reality that white people vehemently deny.

I wonder how people might react if Barack Obama, mixed race, and married to a black woman, proclaimed “My daughters are white. One drop is enough. “

R
Guest

People are not reacting because President’s Obama’s daughters look black and white folks don’t care that one grandmother was white. Halle’s mother taught her to identify as black because that is what people were going to see when they looked at her. She certainly can’t pass for white in Hollywood. Slave owners raped black women and their biracial children [like Halle] were property. These men never paid child support and their brown skinned children certainly were not invited to sit at the dinner table. Were these children just as much white as black? Yes Were these children just as much… Read more »

@R

The ODR keeps a lot of the racial bs going in the US, because, it’s not black and white. Real blackness is marginalized because of the rule. Any huckster with black blood can claim membership, how can that be? Creole whites have the nerve to say they’re not white just because? Kim K and other mixed white females are denying whiteness just to be accepted by blacks. What planet are we living on?

The concept of race is different in the U.S. from from the rest of the world. The U.S. was the only country in the world that had the “one drop of blood rule”. Even South Africa in the times of apartheid did not have that rule. That rule says that if one of your ancestors up to the fourth or fifth generation were of black african ancestry you are black. This is a rule that was established by law (Common Law) in the 17th century. Its purpose was to maintain in slavery people who otherwise would have been considered whites… Read more »

One: Race does not exist.  Culture/language is oft-confused for the former.  Two: The “One-Drop Rule” is insulting and undignified.  Three: Uneducated actors are renowned for speaking without thinking.  Four: All human beings are classists by nature, contrary to how they have been conditioned.  The same behavior is demonstrated in the other Great Apes.

THAT’S NOT TRUE !!!
.
The racist-‘One-Drop Rule’ was IMPORTED to the U.S.
from England, Germany and other European nations
AND it had NOTHING whatsoever to do with “slavery”.
.
The chattel-slavery system ENDED about sixty (60) years
before the racist-‘One-Drop Rule’ was implemented — and
both it and the racist-‘One-Drop Rule’ was ONLY used in
certain,regional areas of the U.S. and only lasted for a given
period of time — as the racist-‘One-Drop Rule’ was implemented
around 1924 or 1930) prior to it eventually becoming
BANNED nationwide (via the 1967 ‘Loving’ case).

The “one-drop” theory goes way farther back than just from more recent segregation, but was a common issue in the south US during the infectiuous blemish of the “slavery years” , where there were many slaves that looked completely white, but were still held as slaves because they were known to be the descendants of African ancestors.  I can identify with Halle Berry wanting her child to be considered black even if the child has the smallest percentage of African blood in their veins because it brings and shows respect for both Halle’s and her children’s ancestors and the hardships and oppression… Read more »

. There is actually no such thing as a so-called “Light-Skinned Black” person … but rather … such individuals and groups are actually people who are of a ‘Multi-Generational Multiracially-Mixed’ (MGM-Mixed) Lineage that some may have been pressured or encouraged to ignore or downplay. . http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Generation-Mixed/message/4160 .

@Victor Halle Berry is 1/2 black and her daughter is white…white father, 1/2 white mother. Halle is wrong to view her daughter as black, because she’s not. People, a black mother and father is black…Period! It doesn’t matter how black someone may look outwardly. Puerto-Ricans and other so-called latinos are notorious for annoying the hell out of black folk just because they have a certain percentage of black blood in them. If they love black so much, they’d be black…i view them as hypocrites of the worst kind. Black latinos are brainwashed to hate themselves, and the same group that… Read more »
