American & Caribbean Culture

Caribbean culture is not all about sunshine and beaches. Although these things are great to have, things like family and traditions are also a part of Caribbean culture. The environment and the importance of the being united is also very important and emphasized a lot by Caribbean art, music, and musicians such as Bob Marley.
One example is the different opinions and reactions on morals and values. American culture, over the years, the new “norms” include being pregnant at a young age. Although this is not a thing to be proud of America is not the top country with a high birthrate at a young age.in Caribbean culture morals and values are enforced more and are expected to be carried through than in American culture.Another difference these two cultures is the way these cultures are identified and what things are most commonly identified with that culture.
“The palm is the symbol most associated with Caribbean identity.”
Symbols like this and many others are seen and automatically associated with the Caribbean culture. American culture is also specifically identified. In an article by Kim Zimmermann she says
“The United States is sometimes described as a "melting pot.”
American Culture
American culture is based upon democracy and getting the chance to choose depending on your personal preference and/or capabilities. “The American Dream" is one of the main ideas that attract immigrants to the American culture. There is no real definition of American culture because it is a melting pot of every culture.
What are the differences between American and Caribbean culture?
Differences such as morals and how they are viewed in each culture. In American culture morals are not the top priority and are this is generally proven by the media that involves America. In Caribbean culture morals are important and are installed into you at a young age and are expected to be upheld throughout your life and taught to your future children so that these morals will last for generations. Although Caribbean and American culture are similar in some ways, the differences are more abundant.

The Differences Between American & Caribbean Culture
American and Caribbean culture are both amazing cultures to be a part of. They are different in many ways. From their food and art to how morals and values impact the way that the culture is shaped. Both of these cultures are different and like any other culture they are stereotyped without actually knowing about the culture. I have the opportunity to live in both of these cultures, which makes me feel extremely fortunate and I wouldn’t want to have it any other way.

“Erickson believed that the child learns moral rules from both of the parents while Freud believed only form the parent of the same sex of the child. Now in the Caribbean, children learn moral values from both parents so Erickson's theory is more prevalent.”
“Democracy is worth dying for, because it's the most deeply honorable form of government ever devised by man –Ronald Reagan.”
“If you know what life is worth, you will look for yours on earth. And now you see the light, you stand up for your rights!”-Bob Marley
