When I first watched the babkiewariea it took me a while to realize how grateful I am to be in the situation we all are in and living in the United States. Our country has had so many foreign people or even us invade their country and expect people to adapt to us. When they do something we don’t understand we expect them to stop and adapt to us. When really we should be adapting to each others culture and learning what we can from one another. I’ve actually been somewhere that they didn’t like me simply because I wasn’t like them. That feeling is awful because you can’t change it if its what you look like or where your from. I only see it helping me look out for others in the future.
In Chapter three I remembered the unconscious competence part, which was being unaware that your actions or behaviors are unappropriated. I began to wonder how much this has happened to me and obviously not realize it was inappropriate to some people or cultures. Really makes you think and understand that it’s good to learn about cultures before you immerse yourself.
Chapter four was about culture and about how everyone has different culture from one another. Like this culture has a lot of Christians and Mormons and they have different cultures than people one state away. Well pretty much different from everyone. People have cultures all over such as school, home, work and other places as well.
