Group 3: Question 1

How do different ethnic groups (or different countries, different cultures) interpret the same media messages?

A perfect example of showing the way a different country and culture reacted to a large scale media message/event, was Kenya's reaction to the election of our president Barack Obama.

Despite not being immediately impacted by the election of Obama to the highest office in the United States, Obama's roots in their country made them feel important.


The country united as one, and celebrated in traditional fashion; even creating a national holiday in honor of Obama's inauguration.
