I think you need to reroute your tangent toward someone who actually believes that "mixed" Blacks aren't Black.

She does identifies as black however she is not a black woman. Everyone in the world knows she is a biracial woman. So are you upset that a non white woman is only being rewarded for what you believe to be a devaluing role or are you upset that a bw is rewarded for the role? If it's the latter, your anger is misguided because she is not black and a black woman turned the role down. That's my only point.
You make absolutely NO SENSE at all.

In one instance you assert Halle's a Black woman by her own admittance, but on the other hand, you want to insist that she's something else.

If Halle herself claims she's a Black woman, who are you or anyone else to usurp that? You make it seem as though this 50 year old woman doesn't know what she is by now. How ridiculous and how insulting...

It is insulting. It's insulting that blacks give other groups of people such liberties.

We can all call ourselves what we want but our genetics are what they are. You can't simply change who you are. At the end of the day she is not a black woman and it's unfair to blame the whole of bw for what a non black woman chose to do. Especially considering the woman who is black turned the role down. She should have been uplifted by the black community but instead the black community chose to focus on the non black woman who took the role.

To further illustrate my point, I'm asking if you are upset that a non ww in your view had to do a degrading role in order to get a trophy or are you looking at this from a black/white perspective?

If you are viewing this from a black/white perspective it isn't fair because she is not a bw and in fact a bw turned the role down.

If you are looking at this from the point of non ww being degraded in order to get an accolade that makes more sense and honorable to have that sort of concern for all minority women.

That's the first black person or so-called black person I've seen define black with a short math equation. If you want to go by such a short defintion, then Halle Berry is black, because it says so on her birth certificate.

However, feel free to elaborate if you'd like. And please try not to beat around the bush like you just did.

I think some blacks are around a lot of "slave" type blacks who still view the world in a slave mindset. I believe the world has progressed a lot. Many blacks, such as myself, have been around enough biracials and other groups and see them not has black but as biracials. In fact the biracials I'm around demand to be called biracial if they must be called anything. They quickly correct those who call them black.

Biracial's are black. Telling them what they are is not the same as claiming them. For example, I don't claim Halle Berry. But regardless of what they want to be called, the power system will always treat them like black people. So they may as well I dentify with that, and not one half of their blood. And if they think they will one day be accepted because they are half white, then how they treat Obama should answer that. My point is, you can't be both. The black gene is too strong.

The only people who don't see Halle as black are black people many of whom are powerless when it comes Hollywood and can't heavily influence her career one way or the other. Whites don't this brown skin woman as one of them and don't want claim her.

Blacks are dying because of weakness and everyone takes advantage of the weak. It's just the way of the world. It's simply a painful truth.
If you're going to use food for an example, then go back to who actually gave blacks soul food in the first place. Blacks are dying because their God, their religion, their name, and their culture has been stripped from them. As long as they deny this, and try to blend with the ills of white soceity, Hollywood included, they will continue to die a slow death. Maybe an even faster death now, since the white mans time is running out. It's getting so bad that Hollywood is now starting to make entertainment out of it's own poor, whom many thought they would prosper by participating in black oppression. The Bible says your own weapons will be formed against you.

Now this post I'm having a difficult time understanding. The food reference was simply about placing stereotypes in there proper place. Too much focus on stereotypes in the bc. You guys stereotype each other as well which points to defeat of the mind. It's very counterproductive. It also breeds more distruct within your group.

Soul food originated with southern whites and like all cultural foods it was born on what was available to them. I know of not one culturally "healthy" cuisine. Cultural dishes start off "unhealthy" and generally progress to more healthier versions. Southern food/soul food is no exception to this. So what is stereotypical about it?
