A new world of coming together. March 2, 2010

I do believe that where you come from and your roots make up who you are and in certain aspects of life change your identity. When you have a person who has come to America from a forgein country versus a full blooded born American there will be plenty of difference that separate their identity. I do not think that the changes between these two people would in turn make it ok to see them as different in society because in that respect we are all human. People that are stereotyped and that have assumptions made about them because of the colour of their skin or ethnicity is an easy way out for society to be able to group them together and make generalizations about them rather than taking individuals for who they are and truly finding out who someone is without these stereotypes (Silverman and Radar).  Taking people for who they truly are is something that our society as a whole needs to work on, they need to dig deeper, look past all the stereotypes in the world and see each other for who we are because in the end were all human. Many times music is the best way to descibe feelings and from this Madonna song I found lyrics that say what I am trying to express: “All you need is your own imagination, So use it that’s what it’s for, Go inside, for your finest inspiration, Your dreams will open the door, It makes no difference if you’re black or white, If you’re a boy or a girl. ” This is telling you to be able to think for yourself and it doesnt really matter the appearance of someone on the outside because it is what is on the inside that truly counts. I think that family is an important part of your identity and it makes up who you are. We can relate this back to the nature versus nurture arguement where is it what impact the environment has had on you or is it your family, peers and the loved ones around you. I think people cant be so quick to just and need to take a step back and look at the finer things in life that actually matter and make up your personality and better inner self.
