Culture can be defined as the faith and beliefs that are found within a given society. Within the culture, there exist subcultures. A subculture can be described as a group of beliefs that are found in a huge set of beliefs; they are seen to have certain beliefs or interests at variance with those of the bigger set of beliefs. The major common category of culture is the common manner of living of one group of a given society, in terms of the variance of the beliefs. These blocks are formed within a social category as much as with perception to the age of the individual, either male or female and professions.
The category of beliefs and norms that I do most deemed to be fit in is the youth belief category. These groups of category culture are attached to language that is portrayal to the particular segment.The youths use some words that enhance their fitness in a particular society. Some languages currently featuring into this group are slangs. Slang was in the past perceived as an abusive language, not allowed kind of language. However, among the youth one will find some slang such as the N-word. These terms are majorly used when a youth is talking to other peers (Kroeber and Kluckholm, 1952).
The youth subculture is encompassed by various common values such as belonging to a given group. The youths feel comfortable and well known when a person is within this category. The youths also share common values such the certain types of games, linking and networking. Youths like using the social media in exchanging information and socializing. One of the experiences for an individual within a youth subculture is that Slangs have been the basement steps for upcoming of a new language.
Youth set of beliefs and norms may interfere the identification of an individual. The concept needs to be linked to the values that an individual will gain upon socializing with the individuals within the same category. A person can be limited to the similar category unless a transition takes place dictated by nature. Therefore, an individual within the youth subculture may be ruined or molded depending on the character of individuals they are interacting.
In the Hispania culture, the youths have developed certain types of cultural beliefs in the entire nation. Since the transition to the youth, the subculture has been incorporated with various issues which identify them only. For example the use of particular jargon such as the N- word when they are attributing to their fellow colleagues. The specification of the terms they use helps them to exclude other members who are not fit in the same cultural group (Wilbur and Monk, 2010).
In conclusion, the concept of culture is very wide.The variation of culture from various countries and societies bring about the variation in the understanding of various sub-groups. The concept is a sociology concept which addresses how people in a particular group identify themselves therefore it required to be preserved for upcoming generations. Future generations are advised to copy the important values and leave the vices. The custom and norm of a given society acts as the mark for their identification.
