The Nacirema

I’m posting the text from my Cultural Anthropology class. I really got a kick out of it so I thought I would share. Be warned though, it’s a fairly long read on blog terms. Read the article here before the jump.

So we were asked to read this and discuss among our neighbors. My group members started saying things like “Wow, they seem quite savage” and “Yeah, I wouldn’t like to meet one”.

All right, if you don’t get it by now. ‘Nacirema’ is ‘American’ spelled backwards. It’s just a big joke.
