Essay On Do Cultures Influence Classes?

1159 words - 5 pages

In the passage "Working Class Culture" by Joanna Kadi from Thinking Class: Sketches from a Cultural Worker, it is about the relationship between cultures and classes. As the main conclusion of this passage is "Class needs to be recognized as contributing forces around cultural environments", the author is trying to define cultures and classes in the passage as a whole, however, I barely seen any relevant points that like me and most of the people would like to figure out from. Her argument is so weak and saying that working class people don't have culture and rich people have culture are her concepts.

And it depends on what kinds of cultures would be in the extent to influence different classes as well as different kinds of people. Culture is defined as the meaning of dance, music, drama, literature and even fine arts. They are in different forms that are also important to the human and social class specifically to talk about dancing like the passage mentions about ballet and debke. They are considered the same because they are just dance, but the author is kind of discrimination against the working class people by saying that only rich people can participate in ballet while working class poor are just can look for group participation in the debke lesson or even two steps dance.
