Cultural Conversations.
The idea:
“When hurtful stereotypes and ignorant prejudices
collide, a major accident is bound to ensue. Mao once said,
‘Without destruction there can be no construction.’ I
interpret this to mean that in order to construct (or reconstruct), a positive deconstruction is sometimes
necessary first. Crash is layered enough to do that and
much more. If you have a class of English students that
seem open to receiving pop-cultural topics for writing and
discussion subject-matter, you might have some success
with this piece.” –Lee Hobbs
The purpose:
Already this year, we’ve read and discussed various multicultural issues that have asked us to put ourselves in
others’ shoes, to walk the walk of people in a different place
and time than ourselves. In doing that, we’ve found
themes that transcend culture and time. I hope that
the movie Crash (although altered from its original version)
helped bring those same issues to a modern-day America
where we can examine and challenge our beliefs, our
society, and ourselves from where we are today.
The hope:
In order to be most effective in our discussions and
reflections, we need to maintain an academic maturity and
sensitivity when sharing our views and listening to others.
I know you can chose your words carefully, respect
differences, and listen with an open mind. Please remember
this as we ask and answer important questions.

On the back of your image from “Worlds Collide”
•
•
Identify how Iyer juxtaposes 1) images of wealth and success
vs images of struggling to achieve (in paragraph two) and 2)
the expectation of freedom from a police state vs the reality
of cultural restrictions (in paragraph five).
Write a response to the prompt on page 52: To what extent
does one’s background affect his or her perception of a given
situation? For example:
The new arrivals to America in Pico Iyer’s “Where Worlds Collide” are less
affected by their new surroundings than they are by their own expectations of
the land and promise that awaits them. Iyer describes the “unending
cacophony” (p6) of sounds and the “opportunities [that] are swirling dizzily,
promiscuously” (p2) within the newcomers’ vision. Even so, the barrage of
colors and noise do not suggest that they are going any where but the “Land
of Opportunity,” a phrase whose idea is repeated at least four times. This
allusion to the “Promised Land,” (p1) a biblical place that beckoned God’s
chosen people, is synonymous with America, and is referenced as a new life
they can “claim” in the “The City of Angels.” So in spite of images of
overwhelming transportation options (p2), overpriced snacks (p4), and
overzealous sales pitches (p2), the new arrivals “await” something; their
expectations of the opportunities are not even squelched as they move into
their new home. Iyer’s piece strongly suggests that expectations are a part of
one’s background, and in this case, expectations are enough to hide otherwise
daunting visions from one’s experience.
