For the same reason that young people tend to generalize. (ALL of a group are not the same. ALL old people aren't mean. Some are.)

Yarbert, how can you be sure people are "mean to you" because you are black? That may have nothing to do with it. You think old people are mean, you think teachers have snotty and ugly attitudes ... Wow. It may simply be a matter of your perception. You are assuming an awful lot. Maybe talk to people and get to know them better before you think they are snotty or ugly or are mean to you because you are black or young or whatever. You might need an attitude adjustment.

Well it depends. They could have alzheimers disease, which makes them grumpy, or maybe there husband or wife passed away. They could be losing there hearing, or just be mad because so many ppl think they need to help him. Hope it helped!

Well said.. If you were a old person, and you never got the respect that you deserve for living a long life. Would you be mad? The younger generation today do not care about manners and respect for elders or adults at all. It's the society they are growing up in verses the society that the older generations grew up in.
