Over the weekend, footage from an interview with Terrence Howard floated around the webosphere. While promoting his latest film, Dead Man Down, the 44 year-old actor talked about his role in his new film and addressed on the negative responses from the black community regarding his decision to divorce his ex-wife and marry an Asian woman:
We have a crab mentality where we try to pull each other down because of the choices that we make. Because I chose to marry an Asian woman instead of a Black woman. I think as Black people we have to start helping each other and congratulating each other for being morally strong. And doing the right thing by that. And stop. If you dont have something nice to say, then don’t say anything at all.
Terrence’s latest film, Dead Man Down is in movie theaters now. In the meantime, what do you think about Terrence’s statement?
