Do you think that biracial women with white mothers and black fathers should be able to call themselves black women? I get fustrated with this because how can they be a black woman when they didn't even come from one and really don't know much about us. I don't think they should get that title. I hate hearing Halle Berry (who has a white mother) be called "The most beautiful black woman). To me, that just seems unfair. Who else feels this way?

I don't think anyone who's biracial (that is, black and white) regardless of which one of their parents is black or white should be calling themselves black. If the mother's white and the father's black, you are mulatto. If the mother's black and the father's white you are a mulatto. Case closed.

I always tell people that I'm mixed with some Native American blood.

as a multi-cultural woman, I refer to myself as black, because that is the first thing that a person sees when they see you. And you never know how they are being raised in their home.

Do you have something against white people or something?

The word mulatto is so archaic and outdated, and is still used to hurt people in the south. The modern term is bi-racial.

I saw that episode, and she did look like a fool, but I think it's all in how a child with a mixed or multi racial background is raised. That is why you can't say that you don't want them to call themselves a black woman/man when that is all that they know and how they were raised.
