I wouldn't abandon my own.

But if I were to move somewhere else, or become surrounded by another's culture. I would openly embrace and learn about it.

Howdy, my name is Kenichi Smith.

I'm a 27 year old Japanese Toonaholic (Cartoon fan for you foreigners). I draw cartoons and comics on my tablet, and spend my days perfecting my art and playing superior American games. (Halo, Gears of War, Call of Duty)

I train with my 1911 every day, this superior weapon can shoot straight through steel because it kicks ass, and is vastly superior to any other weapon on earth. I earned my gun license two years ago, and I have been getting better every day.

I speak English fluently, both the Midwestern and the East Coast accents, and I write fluently as well. I know everything about American history and their Constitution, which I follow 100%

When I get my American visa, I am moving to New York to attend a prestigious High School to learn more about their magnificent culture. I hope I can become an animator for Nickelodeon or a game designer!

I own several cowboy outfits, which I wear around town. I want to get used to wearing them before I move to America, so I can fit in easier. I keep cool to my elders and seniors and speak English as often as I can, but rarely does anyone manage to respond.

Wish me luck in America!

The only thing I would disregard is females, so I could acquire currency.

Hell no.
I love black American hip hop, i could have been considered wigga as a kid by some(no i wasn't one of THOSE types), iam obsessed with Japan(as far as anime, video games, girls).
I had Asian friends in school, i work with lots of Asians, eat Asian food , like Asian girls, ETC
BUT, iam Aussie as fuck! I speak like an Aussie (for the most part), i love Australian football (AFL) , i love cricket, i drink Aussie beer, i have BBQ's, eat meat pies, eat vegemite, etc.

I dont wish i was Japanese or black.

I dont want to be something that i am not, despite having a bit of an identity crisis

In an anthropological sense, I believe it's called 'going native'.

Being culture bound is nothing new.I prefer my identity as an individual rather than being an advocate of cultural expression..

This meme doesn't make any sense.

Wyoming, not New York, would make more sense.

people need to realise no culture is homogeneous. most cultures are intertwined with one another or borrowed.

and we all came from the same sh.t. so there's no point in being obsessed with, "you can't be this or that if you don't have this or that's dna".

I am happy with who I am - I believe culture is defined in a personal way. What some people see as culture, others might necessarily not.

No, I won't. I will just simply respect their culture
