Mi Herencia Cultura
Hola mi nombre es Alejandro Padilla, mi herencia cultura que yo me defino con es mexicano americano. Ay varias razones que me identifico con estas dos culturas. Para empezar estaba nacido en Los Estado Unidos de América en la ciudad de Fresno en el año 1992. Mi primer idioma era español porque mis dos parientes son de México y son nacidos en Guanajuato. Este ejemplo es unas de las más importante razones que me identifico con la étnica mexicana. Estoy consciente que algunas personas no se quieren identificar con étnica mexicana por que no estaban nacidos en México pero cuando era niño menor mis padres me ...view middle of the document...

En el capítulo 3 en la página 31 Rodríguez habla de unas de las primeras civilizaciones en Mesoamérica las Olmecas. Rodríguez habla del “empleo de maíz, frijoles, calabaza, el frijol y el chile”. La ultima razón que me considero mexicano es la música latina. Al igual que el español es mi primer idioma, la música latina era la primer música y única que yo escuche en mi niñez. Empecé en la casa con mi madre escuchando las estaciones de radio que ponían la música en español y también en las fiestas que mi familia tenía y fuimos. No se pudo escapar de la música, es gran parte de mi familia, esta usada para unidad mi familia, bailar, platicar, y en total para divertirnos juntos. Rodríguez escribe en el capítulo 1 página 9 que, “Se diferencian de sus vecinos anglosajones del Norte en ser menos unidos, pero más apasionados e interesados en la familia”.
Como ya explicó razones que me considero mexicano, voy a dar razones por que me considero americano. Fernando Ortiz escribe en su artículo Transculturación que le terma se define como dos culturas convergiendo y unían como uno. En mi caso mi mexicana idéntica se transcultural con mi americano idéntica. Razones que me considero parte americano son la idioma, la música, y la cultura social. Como dije al principio que el español era mi primer idioma en general mi idioma que uso más es de inglés. La razón de esto es cuando empiece la escuela primaria en el primer grado mi ingles no era tan bueno. Los maestros punieron énfasis a aprender inglés. Después de eso mi español debilito con los anos que pasaron. El inglés se hico mi idioma primaria que yo me hice acostumbrado con. Para la música yo prefiero el genere de hi hop. La música latina es gran parte de mi familia y de yo pero en verdad no la escucha tanto como la de

hip hop. Esto cambio cuando empecé la escuela Preparatoria. Mi interacción era con amigos que únicamente escucharon música en ingles aunque también ellos son mexicanos también. Lo que es arrepiente es que mi transculturación empezó cuando continúe a crecer de edad y mis interacciones con amigos y diferente personas. Y al final mi transculturación de la cultural social. Todas mis actividades sociales se inculpan con el culturo americano. Esto incluye mirando la televisión, mirando películas, y interactuando con redes sociales en inglés. Redes sociales se han convertido hacer grande parte de la cultura americano. Mi transculturación viene en varias diferentes formas y razones. Unas son iguales come la idioma, la comida, y la música. Pero también ellas que no son, que incluye las actividades sociales y redes sociales.
