Let the discussion begin! Normal and abnormal behaviors are largely determined the social norms that are established by the culture. Throughout the US and other countries much of our perception of other sects of people is largely shaped by the media. This is espesially true for groups of people who do not live in diversely populated areas and are not world travelers. Many Americans perceptions of other cultures are shape by overly generalized stereotypes. Please provide a brief research based response to each of the following questions regarding East Indian culture no later than Saturday evening:
How is the Indian culture specifically impacted by the TV shows, sitcoms, dramatic presentations, and news reporting?
How does the media influence the concept of normalcy?
How these influences may be different within Western?
