Do you Agree? Terrence Howard Says Blacks Have ‘Crab Mentality’

Howard says if you don't have something nice to say don't say anything at all

terrence howardWhile interviewing with Hip Hollywood to promote his new movie “Dead Man Down,” Terrence Howard said that blacks have been critical of him because of his decision to marry inter-racially, and says the criticism is a result of blacks’ “crab mentality.”

“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.”

Howard also expressed disappointment at blacks’ negative comments about his first marriage to a white woman, which ended in divorce.

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

    Just who the hell is Terrance Howard? One would think all the fracking trouble he has been in with his obviously racist ass white women he chases after, suddenly “blacks have a crab mentality”, as if he does not complain about white folks in Hollywood behind closed doors with other Black actors and actress, yet “Blacks have a crab mentality”, who are the Blacks he is speaking of?

    I think this as a black person I think this comment is
    disrespectful. I don’t appreciate the generalization.

    I know plenty of non-blacks who have a “crab mentality.” He
    should keep his nonproductive comments to himself. Better yet, he should take
    his own advice and not say anything at all.
