I'm growing sick and tired of the "Black attitude" at schools. It's not just black people, but majority, including the people that like to Think they're black. It's that attitude where they think they can get up and do the 1-2-step in the middle of class and sing obnoxiously at the top of their lungs and pop their bottoms. It's so annoying! They think that just because they're black they can butcher the english language with their ghetto slang and they can stare people down. They're always quick to anger...if they catch you looking in their direction they come up and ask what your problem is and puff up their chest like a rooster trying to act all big and tough. All during advisory period they rant about how all they have to do when they grow up is run dope or kill people and they'll make a living and they don't need school or parents and they hate thier life and thier responsibilities and their problems. Don't they realize that other people have the same issues of not liking what's going on? But we don't all shout it at the top of our lungs, or immaturely take it out on teachers and administration!

I'm tired of the cruel way these people of all races with this 'black attitude' are treating people. I participate in a choir class and just the other day a couple black girls came over in the lull of the class and stepped all over my bags and sat in my foot space on the risers because they didn't want to sit in their chairs. No sorry, no excuse me, they have the mentality that says they don't have to mind their actions for Anyone. I'm getting so sick of it! I hate to sink to that level but for years this loathe and contempt has been building in me and i'm about ready to hurt someone! Knowing my place, I probably won't, but I can imagine how good it would feel. I want people with this mentality, mostly teenagers, to learn how to sit calmly in class and give it effort, instead of moaning and making sexual noises to disrupt the teacher, calling the teacher names, and when they get reprimanded....storming out of class talking about how life is unfair to them. I want my peers to have respect for their superiors...their peers...and most of all themselves. Because they're making FOOLS of themselves! I hope that one day they look back at this behaviour and feel as silly as I think they're acting. Am I really alone in noticing this? In being bothered by it?

Of course I can only place the blame on these children that they didn't break the chain that started with their parents. I hear them talk about how their parents 'won't have white people calling their houses' and ridiculously racist things of this nature. Our school prides in it's diversity...but what good is diversity if we can't see eye to eye? What good is it to say that we're diverse if all we're doing is turning completely open minded people like I used to be before this exposure...and turning them into biased people..maybe even Racist. Personally, I don't consider myself anything more than biased and jaded....maybe Attitudist, if that's even a concept. This is just a long winded way of venting my anger..and in the end...all I want to say to these people is GROW UP! You're not cool. You're hurting peoples feelings, even Adults feelings...yes...they have them too. You're giving your race a bad name. You're throwing your chance to set yourself up for a good life away. You're making yourself look like low class scum that doesn't deserve the honor of going to school...or even being in modern society!!!...some of these kids...are just taking it Too far. This hip-hop, I don't care, immaturity has to stop! Someone has to teach them a lesson!

    My brother and I have a simple solution we use every time we go to the mall: if we see a group triflin' we start acting more outrageous than they are and essentially carry their actions et-absurdum. They usually get nervous, embarrassed and walk away.

    that's so ******* stupid, so what you're saying you do is act even more annoying and act like bigger loser's then the big loser's you're making fun of. Wouldn't that make you the annoying loser even though you'r doing it to make fun of other's. Some people like yourself just are just mind blowingly stupid.

    It is a shame that someone can start out open-minded and unbiased and end up feeling the way you do, due to the behavior of a few unwise and immature people. I understand where you are coming from, my son was starting to feel much like you do now due to some of the people he encountered at his high school. I went and signed paperwork so that he could drop out. I didn't want the atmosphere at that high school to ruin his love of diversity and his desire to learn more about people different than he is. He will be starting at the community college in January where he will be certainly be exposed to a racially diverse student body, most of whom actually want to learn about, experience and embrace the differences between us in an emotionally mature and healthy way, just like my son does. I don't know if that's an option for you, but, honestly, after 2 years of great grades at a community college, you can apply to and be accepted to, nearly any college that you like, in nearly any field....and it will be like that whole high school thing never happened. I'm sorry for what you have to go through every day, and I hope you find the strength to hold onto your openness even amidst the chaos. Good Luck.

    Unfortunately, there is. After being a substitute teacher at a predominately white school and at a predominately black school and at schools that have a slightly more white population than black. Yes, there is such a thing as "black attitude" and no it's not because I'm white. When I substitute in the afternoon, I arrive about 30 minutes prior and just watch how the students interact with the teacher and even if the teacher is black they act stupid and don't listen. Acting the fool acting like they have ants in their pants. Not listening and just in general misbehaving. On the other hand at the white school, all the children come in. Look at the board for their assignment and begin doing it. They don't get out of their seats. They don't ask to go to the bathroom fifty million times and they definitely don't threaten to cut you or say that's why I don't like you people. At the schools where it's about 60% white, 40% black all the students act the same. All of them listen, but with a little bit of spice in there. They ask questions and they know how to do their work. I think if we didn't have private schools, then we wouldn't have so many ghetto schools. Because we'd have some cream to take out the bitter coffee taste!

    I know this isn't me, but it does hurt me that people think just because I'm black I act like this. ...so, I couldn't even - not that I like going up to random people- tell you that I saw some cute shoes that would match your outfit because I'm black and must be rude, mika4576? yes, I'm black, no I don't have a attitude, I dont' go around popping my butt - mostly because I can't, but still, even if I could, I know there's a time and place for that - I don't go yelling stupid stuff just because I feel like it. I've never walked, run, or busted out of a class because I don't like the teacher or something they're doing. I don't step on people's bags just because I don't like them or the way they look. why don't people take the time to see past my skin and get to know me before assuming things like this? oh, right, they don't care. as long as I'm black, that's all they will care about. I'm just a dumb black *****, right? Oh, I also don't go around doing the 1-2 step in class, or sing at the top of my lungs. If people want to act like fools, let them, but don't call it "acting like they're black". and, sam0x, should I change my race? you said "sure, be friends with them...but don't be one" what should I as a black person take that to mean? not all black people are scum, and if you think they are, just because they're black, all you've proved is that you're tge scum. I could be wrong, but at least Trickz seems to have a logical way of dealing with the problem, if theyr'e "trippin'" they get wilder than the unruly people. it may be a fad to act like a fool, but please DO NOT call it a "Black Attitude". I'm black, and I don't have this "Attitude", or whatever. Yeah, it sucks that you've been mistreated by what -through your confession - seems to have been a lot of black people, but I've been mistreated by my share, as well, (mostly because I wasn't "black enough" I can't even pop my butt as stated before) and I'm black, but I don't go around saying "I hate the 'black attitude'". I may hate the individuals who treated me like that, I think a better way to put it would be "ghetto" or "hood" attitude. How's that for butchering the English language so far? by the way, one of your sentences should read "the pride's in the school's diversity". shocker, I paid attention in English class. I'm not usually quick to anger, and right now, I wouldn't call myself "angry", I just want to let you know that not all of us are the "scum" you think we are. I am one of the oh-so-few who respect my elders. I guess I don't really fit your description, so, now, this really doesn't bother me, because, as I stated before, I don't have what you call "a black attitude", but I don't want to be looked at as having it just because I'm black. Maybe I've overstated that. I agree that the "attitude" needs to leave, yes, something does need to be done, but this will not get you very far.

    It isnt racist, its the truth, if it was the way white ppl acted then that's what it would be called, correct? ****** is ignorance right? So they're kind of fittin the bill. It is the black teens, and they are a making of their parents, so whatt does.that say about those generations, and race in general? They're just getting worse.

    Listen I feel the same way and I do know how you feel and I see your point of view not all black people are this way but majority are sorry but they are so that's why he and myself say acting black " I mean not all black people are like this my best friend for the past 6 years is black he plays hockey and is to some people standards he's white but I don't judge if I like someone if there black or white I like or dislike people based on their attitude and I say it's black . Because I would hear them make Messed up Noises (usually guerrilla noises ...-.-) and all they care about is rap and basketball and they don't speak proper English without mumbling or slang or whatever and yes it is very annoying and angers me but I wouldn't say it's black or I'm going to try and change the phrase to something else .but I really don't know what it is black culture or the media saying you should be a rapping pimp who gets hoes money and hit 3-pointers all day it's so annoying I had a teacher who was a hairstyling teacher and some kid walked in pants down to his knees comb sticking outta his head while in a middle of a lesson sits down and says "yo sir can you give me a line up dog "... Are you for real ....? Where the **** do you get off so I see the point it's the way people act but I also agree it's usually black groups idk why maybe they think it's cool to be rude but white people do it too all the time but the reason is cause they wanna be gangster like 50 cent lil Wayne jay z Rihanna or whatever is stupid and I'm sorry to sound rude or take sides but sometimes you have to put your ego aside and look at what people are doing if people white or black stop and looked how foolish they look then racism would drop because there would be nothing real to debate about

    I know exactly what you mean! I have to deal with that everyday! And if you don't look like that they come up to you and make fun of you. They think their so cool. And it's just not the so called gangster crowd. It's all a stereotype army. The media picks out a new trend and give it to the children and thats what they live by like their own bible.

    I'm sorry, but that's the second rude message you left on here. What's wrong with you? First of all, before you tell people "you better learn," try to learn how to write normally (no, guys isn't capitalized). You better learn spelling. You're just as ignorant as she is, frankly. You say you aren't going to be disrespectful, then write "boo hoo poor you". Grow up, you bitter person. Someone comes on here, a place that allows for "Confessions," and instead of just keeping these thoughts inside, she writes a message and is trying to figure things out. Get over yourself. Don't come on a site that encourages honesty and dialogue if you can't handle a damn dialogue, because dialogue means "two words" or "two minds," meaning that to have a TRUE dialogue, you may not like what the other person says. To just dismiss it like you did is what grows racism. Go jump off a cliff.

    Hey anonymous user, I know where your coming from. I was in my later years of high school when the government forced the blacks to come to my school. My school was rated in the top ten academic schools in the nation then fell quickly to the point is wasn't even rated. We took on new events like riots, drugs and guns in school. I'm not totally blaming the blacks, I'm totally blaming the government for doing this in the blind with not even a hint of a plan. Overall one of the biggest problems in the public schools today is the fact they have virtually no discipline. Suspensions, detentions, etc are laughed at. You catch a kid with a gun or drugs in school you should tear his shirt off, hang him from his heels, and wear his backside off with a 5/8" radiator hose. Do this in front of the entire student body and I'll bet you won't have a drug or gun problem tomorrow !!!

    It's funny how you say that this type of attitude is not exclusive to black people, yet it's a "black attitude". Why can't it be an attitude? Is it right to peg such behavior as "black behavior" that other races just happen to have? As if this type of behavior ceased to exist before black people were discovered? While you are right about this awful behavior, I find that you unfairly named it. It's called a bad attitude. Not a black attitude. And if one does consider it a Black attitude, then they have in fact pre-judged black people, labeling them as the source of these types of attitudes. And that, my friend, is racist.

    it can not be called attitude because nationaly people don't have the attitude.Not to be racist or anything but the reason why they call it 'black attitude' is because it originated again not to be racist from black people that come the ghetto side who passed it on and on being passed on to blacks like a rumor and that's why people call it 'black attitude' because of the origin . ALSO ghetto people found there own kind black people and gave them the attitude from generation to generation the black attitude was passed on like a rumor and that's how it's forming in schools ,offices resturant's and more .

    People who have not taught junior high nor senior high school probably do not comprehend high level of stress these hormone-laden "kids" can lay on a teacher. I've been there.

    To be fair, there are bad white kids who, even in segregationst days, caused problems with their teachers. But I fully comprehend what this teacher is saying. There is an attitude that has practically taken over the young...many of them, not at all all of them. But many. We can't pretend that people do not emulate gangsta rap, punk, skinheads/nazis and whatnot...the more negative sides. But just look at it for what it's worth.

    People, and even Black people who do not emulate this behavior, recognize this as Black attitude. They certainly do. So calling it racist is not going to solve the issue. There is a problem. There is Black against Black hatred. Are we going to deny this in our own communities? No. Black attitude is one variable fueling this hatred. Disrespect is what it's called and all kinds of kids, as stereotypical as they wanna be, are demonstrating this behavior.

    Then there's the other swing of the pendulum...the "colored" kids who emulate superior white and privileged attitudes. Both are disgusting. People have lost respect. Unfortunately, this particular problem/behavior existing in the ghetto (white,black,hispanic et al) is now becoming the norm as people integrate more. But they are applying stereotypes and emulating that as "normal."

    Don't lose heart, yes, there is a Black attitude, as well as a White attitude. Both, negative. I hope you can find solace and peace in the teaching field and discover that there are kids who truly need you. Those are willing to forge ahead. Don't give up on the ones with problems...they are crying for attention and feel marginalized. If you give up on any of them, you will not have been effective in passing on your gift - that of knowledge.

    I wish you well. And please know, I understand EXACTLY what you're talking about. It exists...and guess what, I'm Black!

    My God, thank you for the first intelligent comment on here! I am a teacher as well, and you are absolutely right-- calling this or that mentality racist won't get anyone anywhere. It's larger than being black or white - it's an American thing, too. Thanks for finally sharing a comment that didn't make me want to vomit.

    I know this comment is way late but I think it would be insightful to just type in google "why do black people have... and google finishes the sentence with "an attitude problem".... sorry but this isn't the posters problem... I work where the majority of my customers are black. The problem isn't the black people it's the "age" of the black people. If they're under 30 they're emulating laziness/attitude... I've been the most disrespected by black customers of a younger generation. They buy t-shirts at my work that say "attitude downloading"... It's pretty bad when I go to the mall or a movie and there's always a group of LOUD black kids cussing and talking obnoxiously. This starts at home. How many times does a black women have to threaten to beat their kids *** in public or yell at their kids in public like they "own the place" Stop letting your kids run around dancing like strippers! Stop letting your kids disrespect their neighbors or the other kids in the neighborhood. News flash having an attitude towards your kids is NOT discipline! That's where it starts. These people think having an attitude is there way of gaining control and respect, but they aren't giving anyone respect for it to be given to them, and then they think oh because I have an attitude I can just walk all over anybody because I'm scary now... What does anyone accomplish in life by having an attitude problem trying to intimidate people? Nothing! I really think there needs to be more "life" based classes in school that don't just focus on book smarts. Kids don't care about that... sometimes you gotta put the books down and be real with kids and teach them how to treat one another because they obviously aren't learning anything at home...

    ugh. Can we NOT call this black behavior? I am black..no, Im African, African American and I DO NOT BEHAVE THIS WAY! Not only do whites expect it from me and tense up when I show up (which makes the most ignorant feel powerful in a retaliatory way) blacks expect me to behave the same way. When people feel powerless, they become bullies. I hate the way many blacks own this negative behavior. You just can't act like a fool and demand respect at the same time. The fact is they feel as though they are selling out or saying that white is right if they don't act like hoodlums...what a conundrum!
