One can be 100% biracial AND 100% black, 'cause identity includes culture and attitude.<br><br>To the point, Halle Berry said that her daughter is black, and her daughter is about 1/4 black.

Tonya Braddox's curator insight, October 8, 2013 12:28 PM

There are many fictional books that have multiracial characters that do not embrace the "tragic mulatto" type.  Instead, the characters proudly embrace all things that are a part of them.  We define who we are; it is not anyone's place to define or assign you an identity.  So, if Halle Berry identifies as Black, so be it.  There is nothing wrong with being Black and identifying with black cultures.  Yes, I said "black cultures" because part of the problem is how media and scholars alike have "boxed in" what it means to be Black in America and around the world.  One more thing, at the core of the problem is many people have not learned to embrace diverseness in what has been labeled Different, Other, Alterity.
