Halle Berry gets sexy and fab for the March 2011 cover of Ebony magazine. Striking a pose in a black frilly and lingerie like dress while biting on a cherry. Ms. Berry opens up about her appetite, relationships, being a mother and the Academy Awards. This has got to be one of my favorite covers in a while and of the year so far. Halle holds nothing back in the issue especially when it comes to her beautiful daughter Nahla. Apparently her ex-boyfriend and baby daddy is reportedly a "racist" and gets angry when people refer to Nahla as being "black". Of course Halle disagrees and speaks candidly about it. Continue to read what Halle Berry has to say about wanting her daughter to know she is black and how she is not abandonning her race.
On Nahla's ethinicity:
I feel like she’s black. I’m black and I’m her mother and I believe in the one-drop theory. 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. 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.”
Dating outside your Race:
“Well, first thing I want to say is that I’m very connected to my community and I want black people to know that I haven’t abandoned them because I’ve had a child with a man outside of my race and I’m dating someone now outside of my race who is Spanish and French. I have never been more clear about who I am as a black woman. The people I have dated sort of hold up a mirror to me and help me realize more of who I really am.”
