Terrence Howard is an exceptional actor but his public image is not nearly as favorable. From his highly-publicized eccentricities to his famous rants (he recently revealed he enjoyed love scenes with Oprah because of her “tig ole bitties”), Howard has alienated many fans who once rooted for the “Dead Man Down” actor.

If you let him tell it, his poor perception, at least among black people, revolves around his interracial relationship.

He recently sat down with Hip Hollywood to discuss black people’s crab mentality and their disdain for his marriage to an Asian woman:

“We have a crab mentality where we still pull each other down because of choices that we make, because I choose to marry an Asian woman instead of a Black woman [...]

I think as Black people we have to start helping each other. If you don’t have something nice to say, don’t say nothing at all.”

Terrence went through an ugly and public divorce during which he alleged his ex-wife used to scream things at him like, “[I] never wanted to marry a n**ger in the first place” and “[I] definitely didn’t want to be the step mother of some n**ger kids.” Though their marriage ended, he seems to still hold resentment for a lack of support from the black community.

    First of all, who said black women were blasting him for marrying outside his race? Just because he said it, you believe it? Did you see posts from black women blasting him?

    The majority of black women don’t care about TH and who he’s with, so your statement about why he probably is angry at black women is an EXCUSE. I don’t care about TH, what he does, or who he f*cks, so lose me with all that nonsense you are spewing.

    I’m sick of people thinking that all black woman are “angry” at who black men date. We are not. Just because I may not support miscegenation doesn’t mean I let black men have it for contributing to it. Quit making assumptions.

    I am against boys like TH who use black women as excuses, and black women who cosign with his nonsense. How you can’t be is quit typical of many black women who are used to being criticized. The boy, TH, came out a black woman’s vagina. This is why many black women are seen as weak because many of us are always supporting men who don’t support us. I do get heated when a supposed BLACK MAN is blasting black women in the ground, but sadly, it appears you don’t see a problem with it. It’s really pitiful, to say the least, but that’s on you.

    You are entitled to hail TH as your hero, but I won’t.

    Terrence Howard needs to get help for his self hate that allowed him to marry a woman of any race that called him the “n” word. He also needs to stop projecting his self hate onto black women. Most black women neither think about him nor are concerned about who he dates and marries. He also needs to deal with his anger problem that caused him to beat his ex wife. For the record, I’m black and am in a relationship with a white man. I appreciate men of all colors. I don’t need to tear down black men just because right now I’m dating a white one. Love doesn’t have a color.
