The United States of America is a big country. The size is about 3.618.000 km2. And it has 50 different states and one district. It lives A LOT of people there. And it is so much variety between the people. If you stand in a street in a normal city, you can hear so many different languages, and see so many different nationalities and faces. But that’s what America is all about. Anyone can come and start a new life here, in this big country of dreams. But is it true? Can anyone come to USA, disregarded how they look, and start a new life? I Doubt it.
In the USA it lives 74 % white, 12 % Afro-Americans, 9 % Latin Americans, 3 % Asians, and 0,8 % Indians, or Native Americans as they are sometimes called. But do all of them have the same rights? Can all of them do the same things? Is the American Dream true? Everyone knows its not.
The Afro-Americans experience racism every single day. It is the same with the Latin Americans, the Asians, and the few Indians that are left. If a black man goes across the street, he will probably get nasty looks from at least two or three white people. “Oh my, it is one of them! Maybe he is going to rob me! I better hide!” This could be taken right out of an elderly woman’s mind. She can look rather cute and innocent, but sometimes, - and often is it, the elderly who can be the worst. Some of them can be very narrow-minded at times. Many of them still think all Japanese people are bad after World War 2, and the men who was in the Vietnam War, often have so much hatred against the Vietnamese that they don’t know what to do with them selves.
