Growing up as an Immigrant in America, you grow to learn social conformity is prevalent and plays a key role in the systematic oppression of free thinkers. Social conformity does not only dictate the way you view issues but also makes you shy away from letting your own beliefs be heard. There are many ways people conform, television and social norms being the predominant forces. By having observed these behaviors at an early age, I’ve grown to develop my own moral judgment and have met like-minded individuals who share the same outlook on the ills of society.
In his Making America More Musical Through the Phonograph, Mark Katz discussed the significance of the phonograph in transforming America into a more musical nation. Towards the end of the 19th century and at the beginning of the 20th century, classical musical was viewed as a powerful cultural and moral force. However, many Americans still lacked access to this "good music", which was mainly accessible through some wealth and living in the cities. The invention of the phonograph, however, was able to bridge the gap between the poorer, rural territories, and allow music to travel to places that beforehand were out of the question. Through the characteristics of portability, affordability, and repeatability, the phonograph took the center stage
The 1920's should be remembered as a cynical but carefree time of jazz, gin, and socioeconomic prosperity. Modern cultural norms were drastically affected during this period. Numerous technological innovations evolved, and mass production of technology plagued the United States, ultimately benefiting, and negatively affecting economic, social, and political gestures. Whereas the telephone and radio had already been invented, they became of popular use during the early 20th century, both of which were used to positively alter the entertainment industry. Phonograph technology saw rise during this period, which allowed musicians (such as jazz instrumentalists, whose study is primarily based on improvisation techniques) to produce phonograph recordings
In the first video the composer Hector Berlioz is mentioned as well as his Symphony Fantastique. The symphony was inspired on the legend of Faust; it tells the story of a man that sold his soul to the devil in return for both knowledge and earthly pleasure. At the 7:00 mark “La traviata” is mentioned, which was an opera that talked about a love affair climaxing in a tragic death. The composer of this piece was Giuseppe Verdi, but it was not the only opera he composed, in fact they were 28 operas starting with Nabucco (1842) and ending up with Falstaff (1893) a half a century later. Franz Liszt is a composer and piano master discussed at 12:15. There are 6 innovations
The Immigrant cultures have affected the American cultural life by food we eat today. Americans do not only eat American food. Now a days we can go to an Chinese restaurant and order Chinese food. Although, the workers are normally Chinese people. Also, there are a lot of Italian restaurants in America. Pasta is one of the main meals people eat here in United States. Mexican restaurants are located all over too, taco Tuesday, for example has influenced many people.

Therefore, younger sons were less likely to inherit any wealth at all; the idea of claiming land in the New World, extracting precious metals from the colonies was an attractive belief. It was the only way that they would make a respectable name for themselves back in Europe. Another social cause was religious reasons; The Protestant Reformation was a religious reform movement throughout Europe, that, when it ended, people started to have different religious ideas; the schism between the Roman Catholic and the Protestant Church caused that. Therefore, religious minorities increased throughout Europe, and in order to have religious freedom, Europeans moved in the thousands to the New World. Because of this, the Protestant Reformation encouraged exploration and colonization of the New World. On the other hand, the Counter-Reformation (in which the Catholic Church made reforms to encourage Protestants to return back to their faith) also encouraged exploration and colonization of the New World, because of its missionary efforts, such as the Society of Jesus. The Protestant Reformation broke the previous unity of European Christianity, and several Christian sects developed; the Church of England wished to eradicate a large number of these sects, however. From 1630 to 1642, approximately
White Americans patronized establishments such as the Cotton Club, where black artists performed the popular music of the day, some of which contained stories of oppression and other hardships of life while African-American. While the Cotton Club and other performance venues were segregated, so non-performing African Americans could not enter, African-Americans still had access to the music and the messages it contained due to the formation of the mass media. Radio ownership increased by 500% from the beginning of the decade to the end, which allowed people to access the music and therefore popular culture of the 1920s, even if they were unable to see live performances. This development was important to the “roar” of the 20s not only because it gave access to the new ideas of the decade to more people, but because it is an example of the spread of African-American culture at the same time black empowerment was
Indeed, you mentioned an important aspect of disparities and it is one related to the disparities affecting racial groups. The United States is a multicultural country so for a healthcare professional to treat a disease or to approach a group is necessary to consider their cultural background, traditions, and beliefs. Despite all the United States effort to eradicate the racial differences in the Country, race continues as one of the most significant factors to take into consideration when we are evaluating health care services or high quality of care. Health disparities among Hispanics most the time is caused by the type of food they consume, and the lack of access to healthcare services. In addition, some Hispanic are not the United States
In the 1920s the movie picture show was relevant. These movies were silent, yet these silent movies gave people in the 1920s a new form of entertainment. This new form of entertainment brought to the people of the 1920s news, comedy, romance, action, sports and creativity to people in the form of a moving picture show. The phonograph was an item that brought music to the home of many people in the 1920s. This device would play many tunes and made it a joy to be in your home. This new ability to now listen to music in your own home made many families and individuals very happy. People could now get together and dance and sing together. It was a time of joy in the form of entertainment. Jazz music was very popular in the 1920s, this developed
The power of music can connect and represent the words that cannot be spoken. Music unites people, nature, or even beliefs. Don’t you desire to reach people using the universal language - music? Film music is without a doubt about touching audience’s minds and evoke people in a certain way. It certainly isn’t around the music or the orchestra or the audience, however, it is the interconnection of all these elements that makes music alive. Being a film composer means that you will be the catalyst to trigger the crowd’s sensations.
Ethnocentrism is judging another culture solely by the values and standards of one’s own culture. Individuals who are ethnocentric judge other groups in relation to their own ethnic group or culture. I think The United States likes to refer to themselves as the “big mixing pot” of cultures. I would agree, we do have a wide range of different cultures, but that does not mean that we do not “evaluate and judge other cultures based on how they compare to our own cultural norms.” I think us as Americans feel this way, because we are too scared to change what we have learned and known since birth. Most people in our society think of anything different than them, as weird or unusual. They do not want to even learn about the other cultures out there, because of the fact that they are different. In fact, I think most Americans are just ignorant and uneducated. Although, most of us view the Hispanic culture as “dirty” or “no good,” they jump at the first chance they get to eat their food.
“Whether it is big or small, the size of a poor man’s yard incessantly reminds him that he is poor.” ―Mokokoma Mokhonoana
Everyone around the world has different beliefs, behaviors, objects and religion that are common for a particular society or a group of people who enjoys shared values and thus gives positive contributions to the society. This is called Culture. These are carried on by the people from generation by generation. It is the particular view point, customs and beliefs that discern one culture from another. It is transferred from one generation to another through language, material objects, and daily rituals. For example tribe’s men in different parts of the world love to carry guns and swords, they are not for using against someone but it’s their culture. That best describes the cultural encounters faced by people while going from culturally different
