By saying this, Hughes implies that America isn’t truly united and free. His interpretation is that America let him down, and led him to believe what wasn’t true. However, his main aspiration is for America to truly be united and free. He believes that America can improve to become the America we claim it to
I think America was a dream for some people and not for some. In these paragraphs I will talk about America being a dream and not. Walt Whitman said everyone loves America and it is an amazing place. Langston Hughes talks about America not being a dream and not everyone likes it here. The truth is America is not a dream for everyone.
However, those considered more “foreign”, such as the Native Americans and the Filipinos, are ignored, neglected, and forced to comply. This attitude is in no way true to the mission of America’s foreign policy. While we more closely follow this policy today, there are still times of disparity when it goes unacknowledged. Maybe history is bound to repeat itself, but by striving to create a more prosperous global climate we can hope to avoid our past
The Peabody-Roosevelt gospel seemed to get it right: the world was not perfect, nor was it perfectible,”(Meacham 1).This does not define the individual American dream but how the government thinks we should be as a nation we can not prosper until we fail. Meacham does a good job on supporting the idea on how America has been built on learning from mistakes and improving the government to better lead the country, although we are constantly looking foward to improve we can not
A lingering question to many of the less fortunate in America pertains to the existence of the so-called “American dream.” Does this American dream exist and is it attainable? The American dream inspires many immigrants move to America, hoping to better their lives and those of their families. However, in the novel, Nickel and Dimed, Barbara Ehrenreich’s attempt achieve the American dream deems it not possibly attainable. Likewise, today, in the twenty-first century, the American dream is still not attainable. Ordinarily, no one would go through such physical and mental challenges to achieve a just barely attainable dream, but many of disadvantaged families still do, even today during the twenty-first century.
I agree with so much of what you said in your post! I especially agree with the point you made about northern nativism not really developing until the south gave it a reason to. That 's so true and I honestly hadn 't even thought about like that. I also think that there were a lot of questions over American national identity and it was voiced most hysterically when the rise of sectional prejudices cast doubt on the unity of native America itself. Nativism provided a means of preserving a sense of national identity at a time when social harmony and even the union itself were threatened by an apparent failure of democracy to meet the challenge of social and economic change.
In the end, Millennials may never have the chance to live the American Dream nor will they ever see it due to the fact that our country will only get better if the Millennials change it. Even if they do make the effort to change the economic problems and fix the problems that have been going on for years it is not going to happen overnight it may take years to fix the damage that has been made. For one thing, it will not change in the lifetime of the Millennials we can only hope that we are able to make a difference and change it for the better so that our kids someday will be able to live the American
“Racism is still with us. But it is up to us to prepare our children for what they have to meet, and, hopefully, we shall overcome.”, (Rosa Parks). Based on the Constitution, equality in the American society is achievable. Many of the amendments support the idea of people being treated equal. Some people will say that equality isn’t achievable because they will have their own opinions that discriminate others.
The new found connotation of America is negative. People need to open their eyes to realize that the American Dream is right underneath them. In this case Langston Hughes writes: Let America be America again. Let it be the dream it used to be. Let it be the pioneer on the plain.
The American dream, I think that USA equality, freedom, democracy. On the other hand means it is a belief that as long as the American after a hard struggle will be able to obtain the ideal of a better life, it means people must through their own hard work, courage, creativity and determination to move towards prosperity, rather than relying on a particular social class and other assistance. This word usually represent the economic success or entrepreneurship. For the realization of America dream still existing many difficulties, Equality of opportunity has always been the core value USA advocated. In the fifty years of the last century later, one of the most important American achieved success is the realization of the citizen equality of
