After reading our resource:  Guidelines on Multicultural Education, Training, Research, Practice, and Organizational Change for Psychologists, you may have discovered that there is considerable of controversy over race, ethnicity and or cultures.  Are your ideas the same or have you changed your position on the definitions?  In your own words, share your definition of race, ethnicity, and culture.  Is it possible for a social being to have two or more in each term of race, ethnicity, or culture category?  The first one is easy and the other two may need contemplation.

Race: To my understanding race is what a person identifies with. Meaning, when they look at themselves do they see themselves as black or Latino? Race would be more so of a conception of one’s features.  I am Puerto Rican but 99% of the time I’m asked if I am “black” (African American) when I say no I usually get a strange look until I stated that my immediate nationality is Puerto Rican naturally with some African ancestry.

Ethnicity: This is your culture, your roots your back ground.  It is who you identify with and who you represent.

Culture: When I think of culture I think of social conformity, one’s religion.  Culture is the way in which one choses to live life.

The first one is easy and the other two may need contemplation.

 

I believe that it is possible.  It all depends how the individual is raised.  My step daughter is African American and Italian and she does identify with both races.  She has adapted to both cultures as she spends equal time with her dad and her mother.  When she is with us (dad) she is in touch with things we do and things we eat which is different from her mother’s family.  She has adapted to eating both different types of cooking and has grown accustomed to the way holidays are celebrated and the difference in traditions.  We open our gifts Christmas Morning with her family they open gifts at the stroke of Midnight.  It is not an easy task but if instilled from a young age the individual can adapt too the differences in culture, race and ethnicity. In todays age we see lots more of biracial families and the children are usually brought up in a multicultural environment where they learn from both parents.

Historically, psychologist’s based their studies of culture primarily in the US, and were primarily American psychologist. With this, an entire portion of the world was being missed and cross-cultural studies was not occurring. By minimizing the population for study, research lacked cultural diversity and it was believed to occur because Americans didn’t have the resources or access to international samples. According to Keith (2011), “North American psychology has been limited in its scope, and American psychologists have tended to treat their findings as if they were universal truths, even when researchers did not test findings in diverse cultures.” Prior to this chapter I was not aware of this, I assumed research has always been cross-cultural because it doesn’t make sense to study one culture, then apply the findings across the board. Similar to children, for parents who have more than one, they quickly learn that one method of punishment or reward does not always work on the other children. Children are unique just as one’s culture is, what is acceptable in some may not be in others.  Class, can you think of a normal day to day behavior for American’s that is completely unacceptable in another culture?

what we think of a normal day to day behavior for American’s is unacceptable in another culture, well despite the fact that I haven’t traveled to Spain I do have many family members who have in addition to friends and they all came back with the same gripe which is the portions of  food and what the breakfast consist of.

In Spain you are served smaller portions that in America. In America our traditional breakfast consist of pancakes; bacon and eggs etc where in Spain the breakfast usually consist of Cafe con Leche and a pastry or a croissant.  I think it is because of these eating habits that Americans are so diverse in weight because we don’t have small portions and our breakfast is usually the size of a regular meal.
