And I'll ignore the race-baiting comment, too. Try to stick to intelligent debate instead of trying to dig for personal insults, mmkay? I'd hate to call in a mod on you, Dent, but you're seriously trying my patience with this particular post. I expect better of you.
I agree with Mr. Dent.
Nothing in the movie that Howard did was any more extravagant than Tony Stark. Why haven't I heard anyone call Tony Stark a "gangsta pimp with a hip hop attitude"?

It does all sound borderline racist. A black man has to be completely straight edge with the charisma of a wet rag or else he's a "gangsta pimp wannabe".
I'm not bothered with people preferring Cheadle over Howard, its just all these "He's an Eddie Murphy wannabe/Chris Tucker impersonator/gangsta pimp/hip hop/jive turkey" posts you're using as your reasoning. It makes you sound like a racist dbag. And don't threaten to tell a mod on him because he called you on your *****.
