I want you to do some research on popular culture to share in this discussion post and directly connect your research to Chapter 7.
1. Find an ad, commercial, television clip, magazine article, gossip piece, music video, award performance, etc—A link to a piece of pop culture that American viewers digest.
2. How are U.S. Americans portrayed in this piece of pop culture. Please go in-depth here. Focus on things like age, sexuality, gender roles, sexual orientation, the message, etc.
3. If this was your first introduction to the culture of the people of the US, what would you think about them?
4. How might the portrayal of U.S. Americans in this artifact influence intercultural communication with an audience who sees the artifact but has no experience with U.S. Americans?
5. Finally…what is your personal opinion regarding the message in this pop-culture piece?
