Reaction to "Aria"
I was really surpised by this reading. It shocked me when he went as far as changing his name just to fit in and not associate himself with his hispanic culture. I think that it is important to learn other cultures outside of your own, but you shouldn't try and abandon you own culture becuase thats basically not being true to yourself and and not being "real".
It's interesting how we learn alot more about old english culture and how they talk without a label other than just "english", but if we were studying african american culture it has a different label, "black english." Just something i found interesting...
