Cultural Dimensions of Expatriate Life in Turkey

  American culture is a topic with so many possible variations that it may seem absurd to try to describe how Americans feel, think, act or believe about any topic. After all, if we want to talk about how Americans think or feel, which Americans are we talking about? Is it the American-Serbian farmer living in Nebraska, the American-Vietnamese dry cleaner in Los Angeles, the American-Mexican welder in Houston, the American-Haitian shopkeeper in Brooklyn, the Native American fisherman in Alaska, the American-Polish baker in Chicago, the American blue-blood living in Connecticut, or the American-African preacher in Alabama? All of the above, of course, and an almost endless list of people of other cultural backgrounds who are first, second, third generation or more in this country, and who because not only of their family background but also because of their race, gender, region, education and other factors are all very different from each other. So the question really is is there a core of beliefs, assumptions, values, norms and so forth that most or nearly all of these very different kinds of Americans have in common which, when any of them go to live and work in Turkey will mark them as indisputably an American when compared with people in Turkey? Because if there is then cultural self-awareness becomes an invaluable tool for any American proposing to go and live among people in Turkey. Cultural awareness, after all, isnt just about becoming aware of how different others are from us in our eyes but also how different we are from them in their eyes. Both researchers and people with feet-on-the-ground experience living as expatriates agree that indeed, there seems to be a core set of cultural values that almost anyone who has grown up in the US, gone to school here from childhood on, been immersed in American media, speaks American English, and has interacted all their lives with others who have had the same American experiences, all seem to share to a greater or lesser degree, depending as always upon individual personality as to how this is all integrated and expressed. This means that it is probably relevant for you, an American planning to live and/or work in Turkey, to be aware of some of the main cultural values, norms, beliefs etc that most of us in America share and express in common ways. Its perfectly natural that most Americans dont really think of themselves as culturally distinctive people - most people in most cultures are unaware of themselves as culturally distinctive, although they easily see others that way.. For example, if I ask most Americans to describe a typical German, Japanese, Mexican, Nigerian, or Australian, they wont have any trouble coming up with a few good, solid impressions - stereotypes really, but nevertheless concrete verbal images pointing to culturally distinctive traits of other peoples. Now if I ask these same Americans to describe a typical American - and Ive done this with many groups for many years almost everyone always has to stop and think - because were literally not used to thinking about ourselves with the same parts of of our mind that we use to think about others. Try it. When I say - describe a Japanese! or, whats unique about the British!, certain clear impressions almost automatically pop up in your mind, dont they? But if I say, out of the blue, describe a typical American - do clear impressions float easily into your consciousness?? Well, I hope its not news to you that no other cultures in the world have any trouble at all coming up with a list of characteristics of Americans right away, just as we are able to pop up images of them in our minds at a moments notice. As just noted, people in every culture have trouble getting enough perspective on their own culture to come up with descriptions of their own cultural distinctiveness as seen by others.


Black in Blue: African-American And Police Officers And Racism

  Unlike popular T.V. shows depicting black police officers in stations filled with officers of color, most U.S. police forces are glaringly white. In most cities African Americans have only recently gained entrance-but by no means full acceptance-to this exclusive club. Black in Blue is the first in-depth book to expose the day-to-day racism that black officers face on the job. Authors Kenneth H. Bolton, Jr. and Joe R. Feagin interviewed veteran African-American police officers in the South to present a shocking portrait of passed-over promotions, racially hostile coworkers, and an unreceptive white public. Black senior officers as well as officers on the beat express frustration at racial battles in the station and on the street-from a lack of trust by many whites to a sense of betrayal by some other African Americans. Tracing the roots of this historically all-white institution, the authors show how racism permeated the fabric of the first police agencies. For centuries, white Americans have used their monopoly of police power to control African Americans. Today, communities of color are still the focus of disproportionate policing efforts in the U.S., and most police forces still reflect the biases of the white public. Timely and controversial, Black in Blue effectively and eloquently argues that the future of the country depends on the full desegregation of its policing organizations, which have too long buttressed U.S. racial oppression.
