What are some aspects of American culture?
Weegy: I don't know that the whole culture really could be wrapped up in one commercial. This country is a melting pot and there are many sub-cultures. The main industry in a particular town; factory, farming, white-collar, etc. [ can influence the culture as well. Town size makes a difference too. Also, different products are aimed at different demographics so their commercials would portray that particular slice of society and not necessarily the whole country. That's not very helpful, huh? Well, I guess an example would be Ford Trucks. Toby Keith, a very popular country singer, is endorsing that brand. People (at least in my area) tend to buy trucks for farming, construction and other utilitarian purposes. His commercials paint a picture of patriotic, blue-collar, hands-on, not-afraid-to-get-their-hands-dirty, working class Americans. This is one slice of America. Now, when you see a high-end luxury car commercial, you're portraying a totally different culture entirely. Therefore, a commercial for a luxury vehicle will portray Americans as being white-collar executives with 1.5 children and a Golden Retriever in the front yard of a 300,000 square foot house with a picket fence. Most of us do not neatly fit into any of those stereotypes. Most of us are by no means wealthy, but I can see how based on commercials and popular TV shows you'd think that we are. I remember reading an article some years ago about the TV show Friends. They were saying that there was no way the characters on that show could live in the apartments that they had, based on the jobs that they held. No way. And who has a clothing budget that allows them to wear new outfits every single day? It's not an accurate depiction of life here, but I guess it's what sells. ] (More)

what was some of the effect of Gabrielle rebillion
Weegy: "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain inalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty..." The activities of a literate slave named Gabriel in Richmond, [ Virginia, present a final critical view of Jeffersonian America. At the same time Gabriel also shows how fully AFRICAN AMERICANS embraced central currents of American politics and culture. Gabriel remains a difficult figure to fully reconstruct from surviving historical evidence. In fact, his last name is not definitively known, though he is usually referred to as GABRIEL PROSSER, after the name of the man who owned him. Gabriel was a skilled artisan with several advantages over most field-working slaves of his day. Partly due to his skill as a blacksmith, Gabriel was "hired out" to work in many different places and enjoyed more autonomy and mobility than most plantation slaves. As an artisan, Gabriel was among the broad group of urban workers whose actions played a crucial role causing the American Revolution. As an occupational group, they were among the Revolution's biggest winners. ] (More)
