i don't understand. are you suggesting that white youth are never loud and obnoxious in public places? because i have plenty of stories to share with you, if you'd like

The movie theater at Lennox? Sorry, but in this case they were not white. I went to that theater many times.

(I'm still not sure what ghetto means but everybody says it so I guess I will, too).

It still is a very nice area.

They did, but acting obnoxious in a movie theater in Atlanta seems to be a black thing.

...which goes back to what i said earlier. i have plenty of examples of crowds of WHITES being obnoxious in a movie theater and other public places. so let's not with the generalizations

being obnoxious is an ignorant people thing. not a black thing

There was really no way to tell in the dark. I do know from past observation that the Lenox theaters used to draw a mainly white crowd so it possible they just started getting rowdy at some point.

My DH and I prefer to see films at the Atlantic Station Regal Cinemas.

1) The audiences there are almost always majority black.
2) I have yet to experience obnoxious behavior there.

So I'm afraid I can't buy into this cringeworthy statement.

I agree. However, some automatically jump to the conclusion that it was young white people who getting out of control at Lenox, and I don't see how they can make that assumption either.

*No offense to MOF shoppers, but I hate that place*
lol city trendz
