This paper presents three short essays about culture and its significance to society and individuals. The first essay examines the term "culture bump", the second considers the significance of race and ethnicity to culture and the third explains the phrase "culture is like water for the fish".
From the Paper:"A culture bump is an event that occurs when a person has expectations of a particular behavior, but gets something different when interacting with individuals from another culture. Expectations refer to the expectations of "normal" behavior as learned in one's own culture. A culture bump can be a pleasant, neutral, or unpleasant experience. People can experience culture bumps anytime and most people experience many different culture bumps when they live or travel in another country."
