The commercial I’ve chosen for this paper is the Stephen Colbert pistachio Super Bowl commercial. The Super Bowl is one of the biggest sports events in the world, and in America is one of the best places for companies to advertise their products. The Super Bowl is where companies put everything they’ve got into their ads, and Wonderful Pistachios did just that. The star of their commercial is Stephen Colbert, a well-liked, famous TV personality. He is coupled with an eagle, which is a symbol of American pride.
The “favored flashy colors” and “boldness” that the bird gave Americans this sense of hope and a fresh new beginning coming from since they were just coming out of the Great Depression. The author appeals to logos because of the cultural allusion that was referring to the pink flamingo and how it made everyone in America change their lives around to be with the trend. The pink flamingo signifies a brighter future for American culture. It impacted Americans as it was “ the hottest color of the decade” citizens strived to be up on the latest trends with the color. They wanted everything in their lives to be about the pink flamingo.
All of these writers all give substantial information of their viewpoints which combined makes up the identity of American culture. The identity of American culture would not be a perfect fixated system of practices or traditions, but rather the ideology of what is present at the time and how it is beneficial to improving onward in society. Price illustrates a vivid and flamboyant perception of the pink flamingo in American culture after
In 1812, the cotton industry outplaced wool and in 1830, 50% of England’s exports were cotton. Because they became familiar with the new technology, shipping and transportation were more accessible and this made it easier for England to colonize. The value of America’s cotton plummeted and they eventually destroyed India’s cotton handicraft industry through diminishing profit. In 1770, Britain convinced Parliament to ban the importation of Indian cotton via the English East India Company because they suspected that India was the cause of their falling profits. This ban raised the demand for English cotton, destroyed competition of Indian textiles, and eventually flooded Indian and American markets with British goods.
The United States of America, is known to be one of the richest and most powerful countries in the world. It has often been referred to by many as a global melting pot or as locals may say callaloo, due to the amassing of diverse ethnicities, cultures and nationalities. Within its borders, resides immigrants or descendants of immigrants from almost every region in the world, and each has in some way added to the American culture and way of life. America is known for its stance on freedom, it is a nation that values equality and justice, this can be noted in the last few words of their national anthem ‘indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.’ However, for many, high levels of economic and social inequalities are daily struggles, a battle that has been fought for decades to claim the most basic rights, in the pursuit of achieving the American Dream. The article, highlighted aspects of politics, ethnic and racial inequalities in the United States and as such I believe that the conflict theory best describes the problems.
Along the history Americans never conceal their pursuit of a free, rich and happy life and always work hard for it, which they call the American Dream. The American Dream is the general belief of Americans and also the symbol of their spirit and culture. For the first time in 1931, the author James Truslow Adams defined this term in Epic of America. "The American Dream is that dream of a land in which life should be better and richer and fuller for everyone, with opportunity for each according to ability or achievement." During the period of The Depression, the American Dream reminded people of keeping forward because people get what they deserve.
Diversity and inclusion are some of the factors that make teams, organizations, and institutions meet their maximum potential. The most successful nations all over the world celebrate diversity and realize the value it brings to our society at large. Latin America at large today celebrates the ‘Mestizo’ and all the history associated with the word. With roots tracing back to the Spanish colonial period, Mestisaje has redefined categorization of race and has further reinforced social constructs. Hierarchy and structure serve useful purposes in many of humanity’s pursuits, but it also has been used as a tool to dominate and exclude.
These tools present the American values as open, democratic, individualistic, free, and liberal that are considered to be attractive by the majority of people. Although some experts claim that American cultural influence on the internal policy of the Middle East countries should be considered as successful and effective, I strongly believe it suffered a setback. The supporters of the fact that American cultural influence in the Middle East is successful argue that the attempt of expansion of American-style higher education in the Middle East was a success. According to QS Top University Rankings Worldwide, in the top 5, there are two American-style education Universities they are American University of Beirut and American University in Cairo. Moreover, they claim that the Internet is effective propaganda tool that makes American influence in the Middle East countries stronger.
