Terrence Howard Says Black Media ATTACKED Him For Marrying An ASIAN Woman, Hints At HIATUS From Acting

 photo ScreenShot2013-03-10at91556AM.png

Terrence Howard hinting at taking a break from acting and vented his frustration over the backlash he received for marrying an Asian woman during his Dead Man Down promos.  Watch the interview inside..........

 

While doing the promo rounds for his latest flick, "Dead Man Down" (which opened at the box office this weekend with a disappointing $1.8 Million) Terrence Howard hinted at an "acting" break and blasted how he was ridiculed for marrying outside his race.  

He spoke about taking a break from movie/tv roles for a while because "I feel maybe I've done enough, I've played enough in these field.  And I would like to see what other mediums that I can aspire towards."

And when it came to talks of his bitter divorce, Terrence felt like he came out on the receiving end of a lot of hatred because he married outside of his race.

"We have a crab mentality where we try to pull each other down because of choices we've made.  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.  If you dont have something nice to say, then don't say anything at all."

Somethng tells me that's not why he received hate.

I am so happy with the

I am so happy with the commentary in this post. Understand black women, your dollar is so powerful that this house negro felt the need to address us personally. Remain vigilant, do not support those that don't support and celebrate you. TH and others like him should be no exception. Yes, to the naked eye TH looks like us but he is not one of us. Our money should be reinvested amongst other like minded individuals focused on empowering and enriching our communities. This includes not supporting businesses and our own men who only seek to take and never give back. Gone are those days. Also TH since you apparently frequent black blogs, no one tripped about you marrying out, its well known that u dont like us. We work smart for our money, investing our hard earned money in your projects is not fruitful to our communities, so no more to you and others like you.

Thought I'd leave a thoughtful comment, but you guys got it covered (Sunflower Jones, sunshine and MANY others). I am so glad that there are so many of us out here that see what's going on. remember who you are, ladies. Don't allow these DBR (damaged beyond repair)males to affect you. This boy, Terrence Howard, is a lost cause and a poster boy for the DBR black male.

Are you f*n kidding me?! What

Are you f*n kidding me?! What gave this fool the audacity to blame black media for his stalling career? I didn't even know he married an Asian woman. I don't even give a f*. I'm sorry... but WHAT black media bashed Terrance Howard?! What organization has the time or risk to even talk about him sooo much to the point his career was affected?! Who gives a f*! Dating and marrying outside your race is no longer taboo. I can't believe his wack *** played the race card. You're wack Howard. Wack! Grow some balls.

Terrance has inferiority

Terrance has inferiority issues and is delusional. Now that his career is stalling what is it the first thing these type of black men do? Find a way to blame black women. These type of black men who already consider us inferior can stub their toe and find a way to make it a fault of black women. As it was stated by another poster, I have a choice of what I do with my dollars. I don't have to support you simply because you are a black man nor do I have to give them to a black man that has private issues with black women. Nope. You can rant all you want. Matter of fact, this public "lashing" of black women/ blacks makes it even easier to not support your career and will guarantee many more won't. Good day "Baby Wipes", UPS is hiring.

Thank you! Terrell Owens did

Thank you! Terrell Owens did the same thing. Once things were falling apart at the end of his career bad, that coon started to blame Kita and Mo about getting another show. It was petty and calculating. Notice that they will go hard at black women but barely say anything about all the non-black women and men that have dissed them. Btw, Terrance is the same character in every movie so who wants to support that??!! He needs to face it, his acting ain't about ish, he is a intra-racist and is very immature. He will never see another $.25 from me.

HELLO!!! Blaming is the name

HELLO!!! Blaming is the name of the game with males like TH. They won't deal with their internal issues, and just like racists of other ethnicities, project their dysfunction onto black women. It's bad enough we get attacked by the media, but for these boot-licking, puppet Negroes are being dangled by the very ones that disdain them. What kind of psycho mess is that?
Sunflower Jones's picture

Listen up, the reason i get

Listen up, the reason i get on black women and blame them for alot of things is because , check this out IS IT NOT TRUE that the woman IS THE FIRST TRANSMITTER OF CULTURE??? Yes or No??? Is it not true that the black woman is our FIRST TEACHER with or without a father??? YES OR NO??? Every nation hold their women dear to them , as valuable , why?? because if he dies or if that nation fall she is the one that is going to carry a nation and give birth to a nation. Even in nature a male lion will kill the cub of a alpha male he just killed just so he can establish his own nation with the lioness. AM I RIGHT OR WRONG??? Now through out history every time somebody invaded land they KILLED THE MEN and RAPED THE WOMEN. Not because the woman is weak and because she's a woman, but because SHE IS THE BLUEPRINT FOR AN ENTIRE NATION. If you look back and go to ETHIOPIA'S WAR WITH ITALY , EMPEROR MENELIK II TOOK HIS QUEEN INTO WAR AGAINST THE ITALIANS , AND MANY PEOPLE ASKED HIM WHY WOULD HE BRING HIS WIFE ON THE BATTLEFIELD HE TOLD THEM " IF I DIE, I'D RATHER DIE WITH MY QUEEN BESIDE ME, AS APPOSE TO LEAVING HER BEHINDDDDDDDDDDDD TO BE A FUCKINGGG SLAVEEEEEE OF AN ITALIANNNNNNNN". Now the black woman of today might be the way she is BECAUSE SHE NEVER REALLY HAD ANY PROTECTION FROM BLACK MEN, but goddamnit BLACK WOMEN ARE GOING TO HAVE TO START PROCREATING AND MAKING CHILDREN WITH WARRIORS!!!!!!!! Or else we will for ever be weakkkk cause our first teachers doesn't really desire to be with a REAL MAN. THAT WHY I GET ON BLACK WOMEN!!!! I WOULDN'T DO IT IN THE MEDIA. Which black women have done to black men for years called us deadbeats, weak, gay, downlow, ignorant etc. ON TELEVISION!!!! But a black man will say his frustration on youtube or on a blog and he's just the worse ever. Black women get attacked by the media BECAUSE THEY ARE WILLING TO COON FOR THE MEDIA!!!

Come on misthang, im saying

Come on misthang, im saying in the past during times of war a nation would rape and take the opposing side woman and create children with her against her will as an act of war so that later on if that nation would decide to rebell again they children will always feel as if they have a connection with them. It even happened here in america during slavery, a slave master would rape the black woman treat the son or daughter a little good just so in case nigggas was thinking about rebelling they'll always some negros saying YOU CAN'T HURTSSS HIMM MASSA'S MY DADDY!!!"It was an act of war and the woman just because she has a connection with the child she'd become sympathetic towards the massa. This crakka knew psychology well.

Terrance Howard is the worst

Terrance Howard is the worst type of negro. Quick to turn his back on African Americans yet, quick to yell racial discrimination against Whites and others. He throws the race card when convenient yet, is quick to repudiate his race. In Plymouth Meeting, PA. where we are from, he was notorious for treating his first wife (a Jewish woman) horribly. As a woman of color, I find it funny that I empathize with the Jewish and Asian woman more than I do him. Terrance is a self-loathing, verbally abusive piece of trash and, I wouldn't wish him on any woman of ANY COLOR.

He just got on simple minded black blogs and media site trying to tear him down for his choice of women
LetsGetIt's picture

Funny, but I could have sworn

Funny, but I could have sworn that it was TMZ that was blowing up the whole divorce and providing details of the messy divorce. TMZ was also the site that was divulging his violent history towards his ex wives. I didn't know TMZ was owned by black america. Also, black women are not hurt about his choice in woman. His last wife had to file a restraining order against him so he could stop beating her a$$. He beat his previous wife as well. No loss to the black community or black women for that matter! If non-black women love structure as you say and respect their men as you say, then why can't this ni99a stop beating his non-black wives. The truth is all women are about the same! Color doesn't make one woman better than the other. #EPIDATSIT

Terrence 'Baby Wipes" Howard

Terrence 'Baby Wipes" Howard is in MAJOR denial. You would be hard pressed to find ANYONE in Hollywood or anywhere else who has anything positive to say about him. He's probably the most hated BLACK actor in Hollywood. His reputation on black film sets is legendary. When he's on black film sets, especially 'The Best Man', he treated the other cast members like shit. Thought he was doing THEM a favor by appearing in a film with them, even coming to blows with a cast member. When he's on white film sets, he always kiss ass. Back in 2008, Terrence had a full blown meltdown after it was announced Obama had won. He made very derogatory racists comments to his white guests when referring to Obama. Some of them were embarrassed by his behavior. Terrence Howard craves white acceptance. He's wrong, the hatred precedes his marriage. Out of all the black actors in Hollywood, he has the worse reputation.

Whatever Terrance, we don't give a sh*t about you or who you married.These idiots always want to blame Black folks for their failures or shortcomings or whatever...Ask OJ Simpson about how "they" support your self loathing a**, get your support from the White and Asian communities. let us know how that works for you

Terrance, there are going to

Terrance, there are going to be those black folks, men and women, who will cheer you on, pat you on the back and say, "Yes, Tom...er Terrance, marry who you want." Terrance, you CAN date/marry who you want, but THIS black woman will not give one cent to you. We aren't good enough to marry, then you don't need our support. You talk about "crabs in a barrel." You are definitely the barrel, Terrance. You choose to marry an Asian woman. Why? It's not about LOVE like some silly people blindly believe. No, Terrence. It's about your need to have a woman of another race on your arm because you believe in the inferiority of not only blacks, but BLACK WOMEN. It's your need to support the system that tells you that people who look like you aren't good enough to date. Yet, dear Terrance, you want our dollars. Just as you've chosen to marry an Asian woman, I have chosen not to support you or your ilk. You see, we both have choices. My greed dollars will not support anyone, including you pathetic, white-washed, Thomas's who think black women are beneath you. I will say this. Thank you Terrence, and all the other "bruthas" out there who take your mental illness and pass it on to others beside black women. We don't need you. Black women have enough to deal with. I'm not against IR relationships IF said parties are in love, not color struck, but I am against black people who DO NOT have a love for their own people and who choose to publicly humiliate us because they have issues they aren't willing to admit to.

CLS1986's picture

Personally, I was a little

Personally, I was a little taken aback when I saw that Terrance was married to a Asian woman (he was previously married to a white woman). Not that I'm against interracial dating/marriage because I am 100% FOR IT! I believe that love is colorblind and people shouldn't be scared to go outside of their race to find true love. But, where my disappointment comes with Terrance Howard is the fact that you NEVER see him with a black woman. I believe that his perception of beauty is like a lot of black men long "good" hair, light skin, and European features is what they believe makes a woman beautiful. Do I think Terrance is attracted to black women? Yes, he almost BURST on that stage when Beyonce was performing "cater to you" at the BET Awards. Are we good enough for a romp in the sheets? Yes. But, are we good enough to marry/date? No, we are not. That's my problem with Terrance and a lot of men. Sexually we are attractive but we are not good enough to be called their wives. That's how it was back in slavery days when the white man loved to have his way with black woman, impregnated her, and left her with the child while he walked around proudly with his white wife, that does nothing for him sexually, as if they just won a prize. Terrance is worst than a white man because he is a black man degrading us like the white man did. God forbid he has a brown skin child with kinky hair... that would be a curse to mankind. He wants his kids to carry the gene of his light brown eyes and fair skin. It's one thing to have a "preference" but to totally annihilate your own race of women when it comes to elevating them to the stature of a wife is what gives me pause about him. Google him, look at his track record you'll see what I'm talking about. I guess his preference in women hasn't gotten no further than a number of divorces and bad press. They will never learn.

Sunshine, many of these

Sunshine, many of these couples involved in IR relationships aren't in love. They are in lust. We mustn't forget that many, especially black men, have severe psychological issues stemming from low self esteem. Black men have been demonized since day one. White women (and other women of color, minus black women) have been told they are desirable. Black boys grow up seeing images of white women. Black boys watch countless music videos where the artist is strapped to a white, Latin, Asian, or biracial woman. They are bombarded in commercials with white women with long flowing hair. It's no wonder they find them desirable. They grow up hearing about who wonderful white females are. That has been ingrained in their black minds all their lives. Unfortunately, many times mama or daddy isn't instilling the beauty of the black race, so they grow up thinking that "other" women are better than black women. It isn't always about love. If they TRULY love one another, more power to them. I do not support IR relationships because I think we, as a black race, are already fractured. It's intentional, that's why the media, if you've noticed, is depicting black/other relationships more so than ever. Terrance just represents the sickness of many of our people who need to justify their thirst for anyone who looks different than the one staring back at them in the mirror. These men are the weakest link. I, personally, would not want them.

I agree with you. I believe

I agree with you. I believe that the majority of black man/white woman relationships they are not in love they are in lust. If you look at the statistics the overwhelming majority of BM/WW relationships end in divorce. A Black Woman/White Man relationship has a higher rate of staying together than any other couples interracial or not. The problem isn't the black woman that "cant keep a man". Sometimes, the white man can see the beauty in a black woman more than a black man can. Despite all of this back and forth, the reason why I support interracial dating is because there is too much HATE and Ugliness in this world to deny two people of loving each other because of their skin color. I support love between two people NOT lust. I feel like LUST is what Terrance Howard interracial relationships represent.
Sunshine's picture

Hi Sunshine, We are right

Hi Sunshine, We are right >>>here<<<. Let me say this, if it's love, cool. As we've touched on, there is a lot of hate permeating our country, but what I think many of us, as black people, fail to remember, is that self-hatred is running amok. Back in the day, black men and black women were denied unity, and today, it appears there is a segment of black men who publicly demean us. When I see black, strong, united couples headed by good, strong black men, it does my heart good. The media is trying, and they are employing some weak-minded, boot-licking black men to encourage young black boys to not date black women. There's a sickness going around that is trying to keep black men and women from being together. Males like TH are encouraging this separation and it's sad, tragic, and pitiful. That's why I love black love because of what it represents to us as a people. While we are trying to unify with other races, we've forgotten that we, as black people, are fractured. What about US unifying. Thank you, Sunshine, for your comments. I have a better understanding now.
Sunflower Jones's picture

Thank you for your comments.

Thank you for your comments. As a black community and especially black women we must stick together and be positive influences for the beautiful baby girls coming up in the next generation. WE have to be that positive example. Learning how to love themselves will have to start at home. WE have to let them know how beautiful and valuable they are. If the men are not gonna tell them, WE have to. Let the self hating stop with this generation and lets bring up a new generation of girls/boys that love/value themselves despite what others think of them. What we said on this blog is not about hate, being bitter, or jealousy. We are just stating what us black women see daily with our own two eyes. Sunflower Jones, you are a strong, opinionated sista and it seems like you have a good grasp on reality. It was nice going back and forth with you and being able to express the feelings of so many sistas out there. Wishing you and yours nothing but peace, love and SOOOOUUUUUULLLLLLL lol... let me stop playing. God bless girl.
Sunshine's picture

Sunshine, you are entitled to

Sunshine, you are entitled to not agree with the IR part, but it's true. Man men of color (not just black men) have been trained to seek white women. Many black men, the ones who will admit it, say they date white girls because they are easy, won't give them any backtalk, will give them money, and the biggest thing of all: They give good head. The white man has trained them like the little puppets they are. That's the reality. I'm not saying all of them feel that way, but a vast majority of them do. Doesn't it strike you as strange that black men always have to go public with their disdain for black woman, but always uplift others? They never address their issues, but always, like poster, LetsGetit, have something negative to say under the guise of "helping black women." They can't even help themselves! Why do you think that is? Black women who date outside their race tend to not publicly demean black men, but leave it to some black men. TH is a prime example of that. Many BM feel having a woman of another race on his arm boosts his status. That's just the truth. It's psychological, and it may not always be apparent to them. Why do you think that it's usually the darker black men who date out? Again, you don't have to agree, but think about it. Again, I'm not saying all, but MANY.
Sunflower Jones's picture

You have hit on something

You have hit on something that is very telling. It is true that Black men that date exclusively outside of their race, tend to bash or hate black women (not all, but many), but black women that date outside of their race tend to not do that. I've seen this disparity many times and can't really understand why this is. But I am in agreement with you that this is very unique disparity that gives insight into black men that date interracially.

You must have seen my old

You must have seen my old comment before I deleted and corrected it. I thought you would have misinterpreted it, that's why I deleted it. You are completely right with everything you said when you responded to my initial post. The only part I didn't agree with was when you said "I do not support IR relationships because I think we, as a black race, are already fractured". I agree with the "fractured" part but the part when you said "I do not support IR relationships" is what I didn't agree with. Other than that, I agree 100% with you. I believe that the black man has been trained to seek white women, and when they have another race on their arms it's an elevation of status. I have black male friends that say that white women give them "good head" and they are more sexually adventurous and docile. They are easily controlled. I think you and I are basically on the same page except for that small disagreement.
