I agree. In movies it seems lIke the African American always dies first. Many times when I watch movies icons myself wondering why that is.

nice post jack, i totally see where you are coming from with this post and do agree it becomes suspicious when the black guy seems to die first in scary movies....(kind of similar to how the mom most always dies in disney movies) <-- see a trend maybe? perhaps it is the specific creator of the movie who sets a common trend to have one role dye off first every time. It is interesting to me to see where these common scenarios root from. Lastly, I have one example where the black guy does not die first in a scary movie, in fact, he is the only one besides the main character who stays alive: Prom Night.
