    A friend of mine overheard two guys on the bus talking about Halle Berry and their strong opposition to the new man in her life. Their conversation verbatim:

    “Man, I don’t understand how she’s gettin’ with that white [dude]. He can’t do nothin’ for her.” “She needs to find a brotha’ that will treat her right.” “She’s too **** pretty to be treated bad.”

    You can imagine the strength required to suppress the snicker rising in my throat. I didn’t realize that only pretty girls should be treated well... I have to pass that one on to the rest of us who don’t have Berry Beauty. Thanks for the insight fellas!

    This got me thinking about interracial dating... Are some people still so closed minded that even a woman of Halle Berry’s status still gets disapproving glances and comments because she has chosen to date outside her race? I don’t have Halle Berry’s status, but as a black woman who has dated, and continues to date white men, it’s not about pissing off my race, it’s about exploring my options and finding the best man for the job.

    And when you think about it, after an early boyfriend mistreated her, David Justice abused her and Eric Benet cheated on her, she decided to try something new--dating outside the Brotha Box!

    It’s not like Halle Berry gives a hoo about the common man’s approval of who she chooses to date anyway. And if you’re going to date outside the Box, raise your standards a bit.

    Let’s look at things in terms of Black and White: Gabriel Aubry is Hot by white-guy standards. Hell, he’s Hot by general standards! So she picked a good one.

    I say, if this guy is treating her right, not abusing her, not cheating on her, who cares what color he is? And if their relationship ends because of something he did, trust me it has nothing to do with his Color, but all about his Gender!

    Look at it this way, men are kind of like shoes, they may not come in your preferred color, or a color everyone else thinks you should be wearing, but if they look good and they make you feel good, after a while, they might just become your favorite pair!

    Leave Halle be. I'm sure this relationship will not flourish, because Halle picks horrible men period. Her romance with the white guy may actually be successful; folks normally do put their best foot foward when they 'try something new':look: Anyhoo, I wish her the best amidst her love query:spinstar:

    Halle is mixed with white so she is dating within her race.
    Halle has alot of emotional issues.
    She is pretty but being pretty is not enough to keep a man/relationship.
    Fyi if me and my brother's can't be together than I'd rather be alone.
    I am in no way attracted to white men.

    welcome to the site.
    we are not an IR site.
    we are not about promoting IR here.
    the dating habits of a mixed race person is of no interest.

    perhaps you can come up with something more relevant?

    i DONT AGREE WITH THAT,
    I think when your halle its even harder to find a good man, men and women alike treat her like a Goddess, but when one realizes that shes just as plain as you or I.. they get quickly bored. Eric benet quickly realized that just cause she wwas beautiful.. and somewhat exotic... she wasnt a porn star in bed. I will say that she that she needs to stop going Hollywood, a nice decent business man would suit her well.. one who deals hollywood but not on a star level.. like an attorney or something.

    Forgive brotha james..
    But hes right.. we dont really promote Interracial relationships.. because were really into repairing the blk family unit.. not running away from the issues between our brothas and sisters, but dating outside our race. While every other race had a population growth of at least 3% last census.. our growth had been stunted. Im all for finding what pleases ya sister.. but before you go outside your race, you need to at least find whats wrong between you and your brotha. If its wrong there.. chances are its going to be wrong somethere else too..
    I sometimes find comfort in picking a weaker individual.. when i want to be pampeered and have my way..
    the do anything for ya kinda man..
    and the dont be mad at me kinda man..
    but..
    thats not what I want..
    Ive ran into plenty of good men,
    they just wernt good for me, or with me.
    But its the same issue that falls between blk men n women.. as white men and women..
    the issue dosent change only the problem.

    Yeah Yeah Yeah same old bs from you white boy loving bw,and all i can say is take your *** to a white board(not a
    interacial board) and see what a real white boy will tell you about yourself.
    And by the way the real reason eric bonet cheated on that **** HB,was
    because in that animal scene she did in "monsters ball" billy bob screwed
    her for real right on camara,the original out takes were on the net because
    your freak white boys you love so much who worked on the set took them
    home and posted them cause white boys do that kind of freak stuff.They can have you!!

    I agree with this.....BUT, before HALLE seeks another man, she should be striving to come to terms with who and what she is internally. As it was stated, she clearly has alot of emotional issues.

    Personally, I don't find her all that attractive. She looks more white than black, to me. Thus, as SISTER CURSED stated, she's doing what she apparently was meant to do.

    I also agree with the notion that apparently she didn't perform sexually up to par....The sad thing is, ERIC got blamed for this, and labeled a "sex addict". :(

    PEACE
