As a child, Halle Berry, the actress that almost the entire male population swoons over, attended the Bedford High School in Massachusetts. The school had more students who were from the white community. The famous star recalls that during her time as student, she was teased by the white children for being black. She also remembers being sidelined even by the black kids because she was fairer than most of them. Berry thus naturally suffered from an identity crisis without an opportunity of making any friends. She says, “I didn’t know who I felt comfortable with, Black people or White people”. She came home, and asked her mother who she really was. Halle’s mom dispelled all doubts, saying, “When you look in the mirror you’re going to see a Black woman. You’re going to be discriminated against as a Black woman so ultimately, in this society, that’s who you will be”.

Since then, though the celebrity believed that being an interracial child she had more power in her hands to survive the biased world, she made up her mind that she was Black and felt proud of belonging to that community. Her opinion on the matters of race became stronger when she was elected the prom queen in high school. Subsequently, Halle was accused of rigging the ballot, since the institution would not “have a Black prom queen”.
