My earliest conceptions of Taiwan were night markets, hot weather, and good food. As I've grown, though, I've started to understand the politics, economics, and culture of the nation more in-depth. That being said, I'm sure we've all been prone to early conceptions about culture--whether those misconceptions are about the United States or any other country. (I know from personal experience that many students in Taiwan do believe that Americans eat hamburgers and fries every day.) What are some of the earliest conceptions you've had about culture? How have they influenced your current perspective(s) on it?

The storyline is the same for many movies. Queen & Slim and Richard Jewell seem to have the same storyline as Divergent and The Gauntlet with Sandra Locke. Abuse of power by the government. Does it matter if the victim is of Sandra Locke's profession or Richard Jewell's o? Does it matter the race of those involved. Is not the story that Government power corrupts. The Government bullies pick on those who they can. The Government bully never looks for a fair fight. Queen&Slim and Richard Jewell fans need to bridge the divide.
