Intercultural communication plays a major part in our everyday life whether we realize it or not . In my opinion , the movie Crash” does a very good job of depicting many different types and aspects of intercultural communication . I believe the strongest message in this movie is how each society views themselves and other societies solely based on ethnicity . Other messages in this movie include stereotyping, racial discrimination, prejudice, and ethnocentrism . Most stereotypes are formed from actual facts, but we as a society make the mistake of applying our stereotypes to an entire population . In the movie , Sandra Bullock s character had the strongest stereotypes in my opinion . She judged the locksmith as well as Chris Bridges character and his friend . After the locksmith changed the locks at her house, she insisted that they have the locks changed again the next day because she suspected he was going to make a copy of their keys . She based her assumptions solely on the fact that he was not a white man. This occurs all the time in society . People always say they will hire “Mexicans” to do their manual labor because of their low salary .

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
