1Culture and Perception Final DraftJennifer ApplingGCU: COM 2638/2/2020
2There are various cultures all over the world. There are micro cultures within the cultures.Micro cultures are groups that coexist in main stream society. They have broader rules and guidelines. They are distinct in many ways, and can be applied racially, linguistically, by sexual orientation, age or occupation (Neuliep, 2018). The reason for this essay is to describe the cultural identity of a particular cultural group and how the culture’s identity is represented symbolically in the culture’s communication patterns, values, language, architecture, pastimes, art, relational roles, societal systems, behaviors, etc. Ways to link and compare symbolic symbolsof groups in culture, in the U.S. media, and academic research findings will be discussed. An evaluation of the role of mass media channels in intercultural communication will be done. This will consist of the impact the mass media has on intercultural perceptions and interactions. This paper focuses on the cultural aspect of Mexico. It tells how the Mexican culture compares to U.S. culture and the impact of mass media on intercultural communication.Culture involves the social behavior or beliefs and values handed down from generation to generation. Culture incorporates anything from language to religion. It can also include music or arts. Various cultures can cause diversity. Without Mexican culture there wouldn’t be any Mexican food. Cultural Identity belongs to the future as much as to the past (Meyer, 1996). The cultural identity of any cultural comes from its roots. It shows core values and principles.
