Taraji Henson Announces Her Son Will Be Going to Howard University After Being Racially Profiled


We know Taraji doesn’t take any mess on screen, but it looks like she doesn’t take any mess off screen either…ESPECIALLY when it has to do with her baby boy.

Henson says that her 20 year old son was constantly harassed by campus police both at the University of Southern California, as well as on the Glendale, Calif. college campus. She told Uptown magazine that she is fed up.

“My child has been racially profiled. He was in Glendale, Calif., and did exactly everything the cops told him to do, including letting them illegally search his car. It was bogus because they didn’t give him the ticket for what he was pulled over for. Then he’s at University of Southern California, the school that I was going to transfer him to, when police stopped him for having his hands in his pockets. So guess where he’s going? Howard University. I’m not paying $50K so I can’t sleep at night wondering, ‘Is this the night my son is getting racially profiled on campus?'”

We feel you Taraji! And of course, as a Howard alum, I am proud to hear you’re sending your son to Howard University. You can’t go wrong with Bisons!
