Cultural Imperialism is the idea that a more powerful culture can exert its ideas and values over a weaker culture and compel adherents of the weaker culture to reject it in favor of the stronger culture. The most common example used in recent times is how US music is culturally imperialistic and suppresses most unique forms of music outside of the US.
