Some but not all...it depends on the person

Real Americans do, but some American citizens don't, if they lived somewhere else.

I'm not sure America has really been allowed to develop its own culture. We're so uptight about recognizing and not offending everyone elses culture that we don't have anything other than diluted cultures from other countries. Think about it, how many times has someone asked what race someone is and American is not considered an option. I don't know, but I think that if your family has been here for more than 50-70 years, you're American. If your Great-great grandparents were French and migrated to America, as the great-great grandchild you are not French you are American. I think Canada has the same problem also.

There are alot of cultures: thug culture, redneck culture, southern culture, military culture, homosexual culture and they're all American, but I don't think there is one end all be all American culture. America is too diverse to be dominated by one culture.

The problem with those things you mentioned is that they can be found in a lot of other countries. I can't really think of anything having to do with culture that you can look at and say "that's purely American"

IDIOTS AMERICAN DOES HAVE A CULTURE! WE ARE THE CULTURE! You just don't realize it because your living in it.

Depends on what you mean by culture. I kind of agree with slick says but in a less violent way.
18 yrs ago, 5 mos ago - Thursday 12/4/03 - 4:20:20 PM EST (GMT-5)
Yeah, Slick, Americans have A culture but not culture as defined by a high degree of taste and refinement. Which I imagine the question is asking. All in all, most Americans aren't cultured, no.

when i think of culture, i think of theater, art, opera, etc... we have many of those things in this country, in a big way. every hear of the metropolitan opera house? broadway? the guggenheim museum? the numerous philharmonic and choral groups? if you say there is no culture in america, it is because you do not know where to find it. as far as capt trips, if push comes to shove, an "aussie" should button their lip about national culture.

I also agree with Slick.

Yes, America is a terrible country. Bush is ruining it.
