are now learning all about, simply because they are speaking this culture’s language. Language is an extremely important part of every culture, and will always give a grander view of what it means to be a part of that nationality. In class we discussed how all of these factors play into culture, and its ability to grow. While these three prejudices are important, there are so many more that continue to affect culture, and there will always be new essential factors. Conclusion Culture in America and around the world is one of the most important things to 7
appreciate and value. Different cultures from all around the world, enter America every day. Globalization, immigration, sexism, racism, and other miscellaneous prejudice acts, including class, religion, and linguistic diversity, are all incorporated into the growth of cultures here today. Americans are able to appreciate the word culture when they begin to understand how much is put into it. Immigrants who come here bring so many wonderful new traditions, and incorporate them into our culture. America has become the most wonderful mixing pot. There are people who do not understand the beauty of this cultural mixing pot yet, but as people continue to share their traditions, there will hopefully be a change in the amount of acceptance for others. Culture is in a constant state of flux, influencing and being influenced by other worldviews and expressive forms. (UNESCO, n.d.) Different races, languages, and traditions are all being sprinkled into America, and hopefully there will be a day where all of these different qualities will be 100% accepted into our country. With all of these points factoring into culture, there will hopefully be a time, where everyone is accepted for who they are, no matter their cultural background, and the world will be one big cultural mixing pot.
