i mean without shade to anyone, what exactly is "american culture"? furthermore, what exactly is AA culture or what little of it is left after it was stripped away from them as a means to dehumanise them?
They are distinctive yet subtle differences… I think.
I think we like to believe that we are these crazy unique people who operate as a self contained unit… but thats not true.
These Cultural distinctions can be broken down into what we find attractive
through music / our taste in foods / Even as detailed as a particular smell that a group
or culture might find more appealing.
You can point to anecdotal or general views but theres always a lot of research being conducted
by multinational companies trying to tap into the heart strings of a particular culture. For ex. A jeep Ad in the states will be far different from a Jeep Ad in China.
Even our love languages are different. According to this book called The Culture Code … "American Culture" is an adolescent culture, so maybe home girl was right in her personal assessment of European men being more "mature". But Americans tend to be these wildly innovative pioneering immigrant assholes who are still in some ways afraid of expressing their sexuality.
they talk about the fish bowl theory as well. Americans stare at a fish tank and see the biggest fish.
Japanese, not so much. They tend to focus more on the surroundings.
But the proof is that these ads were successful in targeting larger segments of a particular culture.
