Terrence Howard: Blacks Have 'Crab Mentality'
Black Enterprise Magazine September/October 2018 Issue

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.”
