If this is true, he is one vile cunt. If it is not true, he better sue because I for one will never look at him the same way again. This is not the first time he has been accused of racism to Halle. AIBU to wonder why if you really truly believe you're superior would you sleep/ have baby with a black woman?

Did Halle NOT know what type of man he was? racist people ALWAYS slip up. Now she has to share her beautiful daughter with that dirt. Arrgh

Why the hell should he have to have a nanny present all the time?

cuteboots Wed 19-Oct-11 12:39:01

if he did say this I feel so sorry for the child. One classy guy aye!

Erm Cogito "gettho n****r" is a not just offensive language. The minute I saw the OP, I knew someone would come on here and address the use of that phrase not the actual point coldweb is trying to make....

BleedyGhoulzombiez Wed 19-Oct-11 12:39:26

OMG that is horrendous. sad and angry for everyone who's been wronged here.

OurPlanetNeptune Wed 19-Oct-11 12:40:32

I mean the use of the term 'vile c**t' (sorry I don't use that word and I do find it appaling, but I can see why OP would want to use it)

Not sure about this at all coldweb. Halle Berry has form for dating/marrying twits - previous partner beat her up so badly she is quite deaf in one ear. However, I am not sure about this report.

BleedyGhoulzombiez Wed 19-Oct-11 12:44:36

Hear hear Neptune.

Though I do bristle at the idea of using a name of a woman's muff to describe anyone who could do something so utterly base as this. But that's for another convo!

If it is true about his racist remarks (re his child),it shows racism has hit new depths in 2011 when a father can be racist to his own child.
What a world we live in!

BleedyGhoulzombiez Wed 19-Oct-11 12:48:23

Am I the only one to raise an eyebrow at the hideous irony of the Daily Mail of all papers running a story like this?

from yesterday's Grauniad.

I don't know that it's that likely he would've remained in a relationship with her for 5 years if he was racist. And then being seen out with Kim Kardashian and J Lo.

tabulahrasa Wed 19-Oct-11 12:50:16

<looks at the comments>

I'm not imagining this am I?

That story says that he's been accused of neglect and being verbally abusive to his child and a court's agreed that he should have a nanny when he has her longer than a few hours, he's supposed to have been verbally abusive to the mother of his child and been physically aggressive...

and the first four comments underneath are attacking the mother?

WTF?

FinancialScents Wed 19-Oct-11 12:50:41

Unfortunately I have seen this happen before. A black guy separated from his white wife. She called her mother in law and said, 'you black bastards are all the fucking same'. She and her husband had a son together. Makes you wonder what she thought/thinks about him hmm

FinancialScents Wed 19-Oct-11 12:51:43

Oh, and you, this couple I know were together for 15 odd years. Go figure.

moonshineandspellbooks Wed 19-Oct-11 12:57:35

It's entirely possible for a racist to be in a relationship with a partner who is black. It's the same reason violent men have long-term relationships with women they appear to despise. It gives them the reason they think they need to do exactly as they want in the relationship, because their partner is somehow 'lesser'.

I don't know if he said that or not. I hope he didn't for the little girl's sake. But I have no problem believing that people can behave in this manner.

Presumably there will be further investigation about it. The fact that there are witnesses (plural) and that the courts have insisted on a supervision order suggest it's probably true (you can't just make up any old rubbish, you have to support it with evidence).

But the Daily Mail being what it is and them both being celebrities, things could be very different to what this article implies.

coldwed Wed 19-Oct-11 13:07:00

I agree FinancialScents, being a racist doesnt stop you from sleeping with black women, having children with them or even marrying them. it simply means you think you are inherently superior to them. Argh

I don't normally use the word cunt so apologies for that but if the numerous reports are true, he is a truly a disposable vile person. Just nasty.

CogitoErgoSometimes - whatever. "gettho n****r" is a not just offensive language, I am sure you can understand that. Take as long as you need to process that in your mind.

There are concerns regarding his care of Nahla, that is why nanny is needed.

coldwed Wed 19-Oct-11 13:08:30

despicable NOT disposable

SoupDragon Wed 19-Oct-11 13:12:40

I'm not entirely sure why they have made such a big deal about him supposedly insisting his daughter is white with no mention of the fact that Halle insists the child is black.

True. Saying someone cannot be a racist because they are married to / in a relationship with / had a relationship with / slept with someone of another race is like saying that a man can't be a misogynist if he has a wife / female partner / sleeps with women.

They are in the middle of a bitter custody dispute. The quotes in the article seem to come from unnamed sources. I think we should take it all with a pinch of salt. Feel so sorry for their daughter though, caught in the middle of it all.

coldwed Wed 19-Oct-11 13:26:26

SoupDragon - maybe because of the one drop rule in America that is still used. Halle knows Nahla will never be viewed as a white woman by society so is conforming to societies rules. A lot of mixed people describe themselves as black because society will not view them as anything but.

Can you imagine if Obama described himself as white? the uproar that would cause? society defines and puts people in boxes due to the skin of their colour. It would be unwise to deny that. You also have to realise that American race history is very much different than say here in the UK. Race plays a LOT there. I think Halle is smart and not setting up her daughter for a fall by describing her as black. I am sure Nahla knows/will know her mixture but is going by societies definition of her.

sorry for spelling and grammar ( I just press hit without checking what I have written. A bad habit I have with forums)
