why do people make a big scene and talk very loudly when they're in public?

Most of the time it's black people (or african-americans as they like to be called even though they've never lived in africa) but I've seen a few white people do it too. It's like they enjoy being starred at or something. Like they want other people to think they are trashy.

  • Good gravy, I know what you mean! I see it happening with all people. They could be 2 feet away from each other, and still yelling. It's like they need to draw attention to themselves. Sometimes I feel like yelling "TURN YOUR HEARING AID UP!". But usually, I just take the passive aggressive approach and yell to the person next to me "WHAT!? I CAN'T HEAR YOU OVER THE LOUD PEOPLE OUT HERE". It does the job!

    I find that it's due to a general lack of respect for self and others. It's also an attention-getting mechanism for some. I cannot say it happens in one particular race more than another, but I do find it more in YOUNGER people. On another note, I actually prefer the term "black." I was not aware the term "African-American" was preferred by blacks?

  • I can only answer for why I talk loudly in public. It's noisy. I don't hear well. I tend to shout. Sorry to bother you.
