Halle Berry Endorses ‘One-Drop Rule’

Via TMZ:
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.

I suppose it's an indication of how far race relations have come in this country that the mother of a one-quarter African-American daughter would choose to emphasize that. - Daniel Foster
