Personal Experience On Microcultures Essay

1211 words - 5 pages

Most of my feelings I have towards microcultures are all based of personal experiences. I think everyone always has some sort of feelings that come to mind when they see or interact with a certain microculture and I am no exception. When it comes to rich people, I feel annoyed, envy, and optimistic. I sometimes wish I had a lot of money and that feeling makes me optimistic about my future. I think rich people are greedy because even though they have a lot of money already, all they want is more. I also think rich people often believe they are superior to others because of their money. They think because they are rich that they are above everyone else. These feelings and opinions come from personal experiences I have dealt with before. I once had a rich friend who drove to school with a Mercedes, wore $500 shoes, and gold watches but when I asked him for 50 cents for lunch he always said no. Like I always felt from then on that rich people are so stingy when it comes to their money. Also I had a student who sat next to me who was also rich and when I asked for help, he just ignored me. I did not understand why and the only reason I could think of was because he thought I was not worth talking to or helping.
Since I spoke about rich people, I should talk about poor people. I feel compassion, admiration, and generous when it comes to poor people. I feel they have a rough life but always tend to put on a smile and look happy. I always want to be kind and friendly to poor people and make them feel like they have a friend who will help and support them if needed. I think poor people are kind and generous. I previously said that rich people are stingy about their money, but poor people are the exact opposite. Even though they lack money, they usually provide money if someone needs it. This comes from personal experience and something I will always remember. I had a friend who told me stories of his family living in a car, eating only rice and bread for days but when I did not have money for lunch, he always offered a dollar. That right there is someone who cares more about others than himself. This happen multiple times it was not just one time thing. To me poor people offer help to others than some rich people.
Towards African American people I feel frightened, sorry, and easy going. I never mess with African American people because I feel they could instantly beat me up if they wanted to, so I try not to insult them in any way. Also black people get so much hate and criticism that I sometimes feel sorry for them and some of the stuff they have to deal with. I think African American people are sore losers and aggressive. When they start losing in sports especially football and basketball, some start trash talking and playing dirty. In high school when I played with some of friends in basketball versus 5 black people, they started pushing us, slapping our arms when we shoot, calling fouls when nothing even happened just because they were losing. I...
