    So did you feel it racist?
    Well, the "one drop rule" was originally a racist policy intended to keep mixed-race persons as 2nd class citizens. Halle's apparent endorsement of same is certainly controversial; it could be viewed as racist; but it's apparent genesis is her current divorce problems and it might be an argument of convenience.

    Either way, she certainly seems to have some issues that need resolutions.

    Then I must be fully Aztec, Norweigan, Spanish, Mexican, French, Cherokee, Mayan, etc.... all at the same time.

    Or is it that the one drop rule only works for one race because that race gets special privileges?

    That's just ridiculous... Berry's mom is WHITE, so Berry right there is mixed, half white half black. Then she hooks up with a white guys, so doesn't that make the kid something like 75% white, if anything? So, blacks can claim the one-drop rule was a racist thing, then they follow it themselves.

    The one drop rule should either be eradicated, or it should apply to all, lest those who support the rule be deemd racist because they hold one race above all others.

    Race should be eradicated. It is an antiquated and superstitious concept that has no place in an enlightened society.

    It's good to know where your people came from. But vague notions of race are no substitute for your family history, and when your race separates you from your neighbors, it's time to discard it.

    Not to mention all those other drops in there. I've been accused of being a Neanderthal enough times to figure I got a drop or two of that race too. Asian Neanderthals, Humans Mated : Discovery News
