Because Terrence Howard is a black actor, he has to be a stick in the mud or else he's a stereotypical buddy cop gangsta wannabe shivin and jivin Eddie Murphy, Martin Lawrence, Chris Tucker wannabe, apparently. NOTHING he did in the film was any more "black stereotype" than Tony Stark did. Its just because he's black he's getting compared to all these people. Its blatantly racist and I don't understand how you can't see that. You didn't have to bring up race, but you did. You done like his portrayal? Thats fine. But using THAT as your reasoning is completely asinine.
