First of all, I would re-evaluate where you went when you did this private study. Did you go to an theater that seemed extremely unprofessionsal and laid back thus promoting more of a carefree and expressive atmosphere? I go to the movies all the time and only see African Americans yelling at the movie screen when around more of a younger crowd (i.e teenagers). I rarely see this type of behavior and the majority of people at the theater I go to are African American. Also, I don’t see only young AA but also other young ethnic groups as well, including whites taling loud and yelling at the scream. So I guess I didn’t really answer your question. I just feel that some people can be disrespectful but some may think that it’s cool especially if they have a crowd to give them attention. I hate this stereotype especially since I know that it doesn’t represent a significant number of African Americans.
