for me the american dream is the idea that my parents could come to this country with 100 dollars and a degree, work there way to become home owners, so that when I grow up I have one less stress, one less worry and i can start my life with less disadvantages than majority of minorities. this is a dream that in theory will allow my kids or their kids to have the opportunity to be greater.
For me the american Dream is for my parents to fight the racism and the hate. To move on and make my brother i go forward and have a good life making good decisions and my parents to not regret coming to the United states and make us show to everyone that every race can have something good in life even a great job. Just by being yourself ignoring what anyone say and do what we gotta do and graduate High School and College without a problem.
