Cultural Communication Values and Intercultural Communication Challenges Paper – Rough DraftIn today’s society we have a plethora of different cultures with different cultures comes a different set of beliefs, desires and actions. Some cultures find it very difficult to accept others who have a different set of beliefs. Society as a whole has issues with accepting people and their cultural beliefs for what they are. Some people don’t have the experience of dialoguing with people of different because they have limited cultures in their community. Sometimes there is limited cultures in the community because society has made it that way that people stick to people who share the same set of beliefs as they do.Stereotyping and EthnocentrismThe text teaches us that stereotyping is referring to membership in social categories normally by race, sex, age or profession and associates them with certain traits and behaviors know to belong to that specific group (Neuliep, 2017). Stereotyping is mostly known to be negative. For example, in the couple of years there have been several young black men killed dueto the officers not completing a full detailed investigation and using stereotypical antics in the decision-making process which has caused for several young black men to become the homicide victims for no reason simply for being at the wrong place at the wrong time or being stereotyped because of his race. As the text mentions must people are guilty of some type of stereotypical thought (Neuliep, 2017). Whether you look at a group of people and assume there a certain way because of their appearance. In some cases, you can stereotype someone in positive manner. If you look a young woman who seems to be very well established in her career and personal life because of her appearance that is still considered stereotyping, but it is a positive light instead of negative. Ethnocentrism is considered the technical name as the text states for the view of things in which one’s group is the center of everything and all others are scaled to it (Neuliep, 2017).
