Reflect on the Model of Cultural Identity graphic to the left.
How do you think American society makes people of different cultural identities and backgrounds feel included/excluded? Identify at least two identity groups who you think are included and two groups you think are excluded.
Identify your own cultural identities within this model. Which of your identities do you feel is accepted/included in American society, and which do you feel is rejected/excluded?
Which typically American values or beliefs do you think are at odds with (i.e. contradict) the exclusivities you have identified? Why do you think this discrepancy between American values and Americans’ actions exists?
The way I think American society makes people of different cultural identities and backgrounds feel included and excluded are many different ways. One major cultural identity that gets excluded, I believe would be race/ ethnicity. Another major cultural identity that gets excluded, I believe would be gender. In today’s date, I do believe that gender and race/ethnicity are the most rejected cultural identity right now. Due to different races and ethnicities pople tend to judge some races which cause for the different ethnicities and races to be excluded from American society. For example I do believe that different races like hispanics are excluded more than the white race. Same to do with gender. With transgender people I belive american society does not know how to react with different genders especially now a day. The cultural identity that is included in American society would be language. Especially in the United States, due to most of the population speaking English, everyone has to know at least a little bit of english. Another cultural identity that is included in American society would be age. I believe that age is more included and acceptable because everything is the same age in different times of their lives.
