    yes, actually we did, all of that, but no, cultures aren't supposed to steal from other cultures...

    food, as you brought up for example...traditional food of a cultures comes from that culture's regional food supply, the herbs, vegetables, meats, and process of cooking, all regional in origin

    i don't consider american a culture at all really, we're more like the group of asshole teenagers who broke off from british "culture", we're the youngest country in the world, we haven't had time to develop our own culture, but this time, it's not going to be regional based because we've practically raped the heart of the land to the point that deriving a culture from it now is redundant, indians had the true regional culture, and now that is shunned into small sections of land, casinos, and overpriced cigarettes

    America is a CULTURE, ALL cultures have cultivated from and off each other.. even the english language has latin roots .. to say we stole or borrowed it is asinine .. we merely adapted with it.

    to be more clear we should us the term "Cultural appropriation"

    Cultural appropriation may be defined differently in different cultures. While academics in a country such as the United States, where racial dynamics had been a cause of cultural segmentation, may see many instances of intercultural communication as cultural appropriation, other countries may identify such communication as a melting pot effect.

    borrowing from other cultures how ever isn't a bad thing at all.. it actually is a form of social evolution.

    the true culture of "white people" would be the scandinavian, nordic, russian, the "northlands" of europe, further south it becomes "latin", greek, italian, spanish, really really similar when looking at regional generalizations

    when you speak of the melting pot, that is a rather new occurence, new in the sense of centuries mind you, cultures are developed over much longer time frames

    saying that ALL cultures borrow from one another is silly man, that would mean by now, they should be all the same....now, on the otherhand NOW, there is a mass melting pot, yea, it was happening throughout history with conquering lands and whatnot, but you have to realize that regional culture and "country" culture are different

    when you say "even the english language has latin roots"...well, then, what were the latin roots? LATIN is a culture, english is one of the earlier results of cultural raping, which, for some reason "white" people seem prone to do

    for a culture to be a culture, it has to have some form of originality in it...seriously, what of "american culture" is ours...what could another "culture" borrow from us that wouldn't actually be attributed to an earlier, actual, culture?

    the "culture" of america is not our own, at all, therefore it is not american culture, it is a conglomeration of all, which is what it was originally intended to be, a land of true freedom, an "unculture" if you will

    imo it's not a fair statement to say america has stolen others culture and doesn't want to give it back.. IMO, america has it's own identity. inter-mixed with a culmination of other cultures, thus created a super culture in a sense.

    yea, exactly, america did do that, and somewhat english/british as well, but to a lesser extent
    but the true cultures, of greek, spanish, latin, "causasian"(which english/british is an off shoot of, as the nordic cultures moved south and started mingling with the "latin" and "spanish" cultures), asian, "native american", african, middle eastern, are real, unborrowed, and original

    i can agree to the superculture label, but in labeling it that, i feel it makes it not a culture of it own

    breathless, how do you define culture?

    the 'true white cultures' you speak of did borrow from eachother and from non-white cultures.

    whats more, even these nationalities are merely conglomerations of tribes who each initially had their own culture.

    when a "culture" has more borrowed traditions than ones original to it's region, it is no longer it's own culture...

    if you guys wanna allow "american" to be a culture, then, you would also have to concede to each state having it's own culture, each city in each state, and each neighborhood as well

    the "white" culture is the "arctic" culture, all the swedes, scands, norwegies, russians (although largely mixed with asian as the region originally was, but the whiteys long ago took that over too, forcing the mongols and kazaks southward)...all them current regional cultures are derived from "white" culture

    culture, presently, can't just be defined by the boundaries of the country when talking about america, there is no traditional, original american culture aspect aside from thanksgiving, and that's an asshole of a thing....

    really, answer me this, what is truly, originally "american"?
    i don't mean like inventions, i mean, real, cultural aspects that developed after the 1700's solely by the new arrivals to the landmass
    i'll save you the time...

    but culture embraces way more criteria than simply whether or not something originally found there. Yes we may borrow, every group in history probably has, but we change it and make it ours. Blues, for example came from Africa, but american blues sounds way different, and to get deeper, blues of different regions in the US sound different. You could say that their culture is what influenced and developed these different styles of the same type of music, then that music becomes part of their own culture.

    an example of american culture on a large scale could be mtv/ego driven consumerism, and waste. Not many other nations do it up and waste like we do.

    nice busta, i forgot about our contributions to the development of waste, sad but too true really.

    you were getting at what i was getting at, but still calling it culture
    when you say "blues came from africa", i ask, where did african blues come from then?
    there at one time was a regional origin of all the bits of culture that are in the current melting pot of today,
    i get how it is considered "american culture", but i just don't think calling a current collective of entirely stolen traditions it's own culture.
    like the southern blues/creole "swamp people" culture stuff, that's remnants of french, slaves, and native americans, that is the closest form of true american culture still existing here in my opinion
